Ocean Basket Centurion

Ocean Basket Centurion

Last night we were at home and ready for food, but not ready to make it, so off we went to the trusty Interwebz for some grub. I decided that fish would be a good idea, so we took a look at the Ocean Basket menu.

We both decided that we were going to stick to budget, so we looked at the lower price bracket options on the menu.   I cannot fault Ocean Basket on having an entire range of prices available.   Very often we go to restaurants and they very definitely fall into a set price bracket of low, medium or high.   Ocean Basket seems to have found an excellent medium in supplying low cost quality meals, right through to their upper price platters.

So, armed with our menu from Ocean Basket’s easy to navigate site, we called in our orders.   The phone was answered by Chris, who was excellent to say the least!   Phoning in your order is potentially a gamble, but definitely not here.   One fish and chips, with the fish battered and fried, another fish and chips, however this one with the fish grilled and the chips exchanged for rice, and the obligatory top up of 5 prawns (you simply cannot order any main meal from Ocean Basket without the prawn top up).   The order was down within seconds, and I was told I could collect in 15 minutes.

I got in the car and drove off to Blu Valley centre, where my order was waiting for me, already packed with the prawns in a separate container.   The fish was great, it was tender and succulent, we didn’t need anything more than the plastic forks provided.   The chips were fresh and the rice was brilliant.   The prawns, well, the prawns were five little pieces of heaven in a shell…

The best part of this whole experience was the price.   A grand total of R95.   Yes, R95.   I truly cannot fault them on value, while I sit here nomming the remainder of my gratuitous meal from last night!

  1. Excellent review. We like Ocean basket as well. Have you tried Fishaways. For us they have a great meal for a four member family. You get rice, chips, salad,4 pieces fish. Then you can aslo do the topup. I think it is about R150. good value.

  2. Nice review. I love going to Ocean Basket. One of my favourite spots. The budget menu rules too.

  3. Ek het my eie catering company. Wanneer ek af is dan ry ek van Wellington na enige Ocean Basket. Dit is my favourite plek om te eet. N1 City, Cape Gate, Canal Walk, en dan die beste daar by Bloubergstrand naby Table View. ‘n Maand gelede nooi ek vriende N1 se OB ek was so teleurgesteld – die prawns was alles behalwe grilled. Toe ek die bestuurder roep lyk dit of hy glad nie verstaan waarvan ek praat nie. Dit was sulke los velle bleek prawns. Nou die aand by Canal Walk was die rys nie heel gaar nie, die kos het koud by ons aangekom. Hier by CW is die atmosfeer fantasties en ek dink die waiter het bietjie te lank gevat om ons kos te bring na dit klaar was. Vis was heerlik maar weer eens was die prawns die op standaard nie. Voorsien julle nie dalk die verkeerde goed nie. Ek het vir my man gese ek sal die naweek Blouberg toe ry net om beter te voel oor OB en ek hoop ek vind daar my ou nooit slegte kos restaurant aan, want anders sal ek maar vir my ‘n ander plek moet soek om by te eet as ek myself wil bederf!!
