I normally don’t like chain restaurants as the food always seems mass produced. However I have to say this Ocean basket was really very very good. I had 3 way calamari which was Devine. My friends had sushi Fish and chips and each one was excellent. Well done. Bev Moore

We first got shown to sit in shoddy seats away from the restaurant. Obviously at full capacity we should have rather been turned away because the service was horrible slow. The waitress probably saw us once every 30 mins. There was no bread, food was slow, starters came after mains and our desert never even arrived. We had to walk to the counter to request the bill. Wouldn't visit in December time at all. Love ocean basket, this disappointed me

Oceanbasket in Shelly Beach used to be one of our favourite restaurants. We went there at least 2-3 tmes a month.
Then the owners changes hands and the new owner did not have a liquor license. This was a complete no go for us and we stayed away for a long time. Recently they have sorted their license out and are now serving alcohol again. But somehow the food is not the same as it used to be.
It doesn't taste as good, the consistency of the fish was soft, the platters were not the same as before. The standard has defnitely dropped
