On holiday at the coast, we decided a seafood dinner was a must. The ambience is warm, friendly and cosy. Servers were all very helpful and service was excellent. The menu was very good and had something everyone. The food was excellent and the Cassatta for dessert was the best I have ever tasted. Prices were reasonable. I highly recommend... More

The Restaurant, its staff and its food never fail to disappoint and our dinner the other night was heavenly. Thank you Lord Prawn, we ensure that we always budget for our traditional dinner when in the area.

Conveniently situated in the Umhlanga Village. This restaurant has stood the test of time and been around for as long as I can remember. On our most recent visit we ordered prawns from the menu, and as usual they were as delicious as ever. Cant really go wrong by dining at this long established Umhlanga restaurant. Whilst seafood is obviously... More

We love prawns and selected Lord Prawn based on the recommendations we saw on Tripadvisor, but were terribly disappointed. None of the prawns were fresh. Our food was oily and the service was slow and sullen. Sadly, Lord Prawn is a classic example of an establishment that continues to trade on their great reputation from yesterday, which they no longer... More

We spent our last dinner there and loved it. 2 people had the lamb curry which was delicious. The prawn curry was a little too mild for my tastes but still lovely.

We ordered the "millionaire's platter". This was the result: The platter was HUGE. Enormous. BEAUTIFUL. We were hungry. Very hungry. The two of us, went deathly silent, and all you could hear were squishy noises as we engorged ourselves on the really perfectly cooked wide variety of delicious wonders from the sea. Despite our rabid hunger, we couldn't finish it,... More
