Treat yourself to a seafood delight that takes you straight back home. The Kingston branch of the Ocean Basket was packed and buzzing on Friday night. Familiar South African accents sounding more prominent than most and lots of good spirit and cheer in the air.
Staci, the front-of-house lady is freshly off the boat and brings with her the welcoming South African hospitality and professionalism we are used to.
A lekker bowl of warm rolls and butter are served when you arrive with your sides, mayo sauce, fresh garlic and chilli.
We decided on the Platter for 2, 12 prawns, 6 mussels, fish, calamari and calamari heads, chips and/or rice. For £47 it was more than enough to satisfy the appetite and the tastebuds for both. Just love their signature creamy lemon sauce drizzled on the seafood.
Overall the prices and food are excellent with a lovely menu including fresh oysters, meze platters, salmon, calamari, prawns and mussels to mention a few.
You will find Savanna and South African wines on the drinks side but sadly no South African beer. They do serve Aramula and Don Pedro though.
Loads of parking in various locations in Kingston, we parked at Ashdown open parking and a short walk to the High Street.
Ocean Basket has come a very long way from serving fish and chips in Pretoria and can be found in over 20 countries with 2 restaurants in the UK in Bromley and Kingston.
