Ocean Basket is a casual dining, value for money, South African chain of seafood restaurants. This Mirdif City Centre branch is the first to open in Dubai. Located in one of the most prime locations of the Mall, opposite VOX Cinema, its interior is handsomely decorated with just a minimum mix of aquatic, marine and nautical references to remind you that this is a seafood restaurant.
Remember that this is a value for money franchise. Although they boldly claim to strictly adhere to South African Sustainable Seafood guidelines, don’t expect fresh or the choicest types of fish here. That said, if you want to tank up on sushi or an assortment of seafood without bursting your wallet, this is the place. And for this purpose, I recommend any one of their platters. Ours included fried calamari, fish and shrimp, and it was very good.
Service is friendly and accommodating – worth a visit.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
