Saturday night, 26/11/2016 we had our anniversary dinner at the Ocean Basket. The Ocean Basket is always excellent value for money. The branch at Emperors' service is very good. They are highly recommended

Due to its location this is a branch of this popular South African chain which should really be on top of its game but we found it rather dissapointing. Food tired and tasteless and not much atmosphere. There are many other much nicer places to dine here until this place ups its game.

Can't fault the quality of the food, the sushi starters were great followed by the kingklip fillets as a main, however the service left a lot to be desired, it just felt as if they wanted you in and out as fast as possible. All a little to rushed to be comfortable.

Always a good choice for seafood. Never disappointed with the selection. Service was good. Deep fried calamari is my favourite.

Had salmon and oysters as main portion of the seafood experience. Calamari was well prepared. Definitely a must visit on my return to Birch Acres.

We had dinner while at the airport. Don't ask why buy we decided to eat sushi (mainly sashimi). The food was just Ok. So if you manage your expectations, this place isn't bad.

There is a wide selection of good seafood here and often there are people waiting in line to be seated, which to me is always a good sign when I am looking for a restaurant. The meals come fast, but the service depends a bit on who is serving. On one day a had a friendly and attentive waiter. On... More
