Award-winning South African seafood restaurant chain, Ocean Basket, opens in Mirdif City Centre, Dubai

Dubai, December 2013: Al Tayer Trends, the Al Tayer Group's lifestyle retail company, has opened the second outlet of the much loved, award-winning South African seafood restaurant chain, Ocean Basket, at Mirdif City Centre in Dubai.

Ocean Basket is one of South Africa's favourite family seafood restaurants known for its simplicity, friendly people and homely atmosphere. The South African chain in Dubai will offer the same extensive selection on its menu as its local counterpart, including a selection of lemon and garlic butter drenched prawns, grilled to perfection, delectably fresh fish and shellfish, an array of Mediterranean starters and an incredible selection of the freshest sushi available.  Ocean Basket also has a special children's menu, making this unique restaurant a true family destination. 

“We are pleased to partner with Ocean Basket, one of South Africa's popular food brands, to represent them in the UAE. The brand, renowned for its seafood quality and the value for money proposition it offers, is well placed to tap into the demand for seafood in this region,” said Khalid Al Tayer, Chief Executive Officer – Retail, Al Tayer Group.

Ocean Basket's popularity is underscored by the awards it has won, including Leisure Options' ‘Best Seafood in Johannesburg' award for the past 10 years in a row and The Star's ‘Reader's Choice: Best seafood restaurant' for the past five years consecutively.

“Dubai is emerging as an international culinary destination with the wide variety of cuisines available in this modern and vibrant city. We are very excited to introduce Ocean Basket to the UAE together with Al Tayer Trends, a reputed regional company with excellent operating standards,” said Manny Nichas, Chief Executive Officer, Ocean Basket.

The company is Southern Africa's largest user of aquaculture products which range from prawns to Nile Perch and Tilapia. The menu features many such products that reduce the need for harvesting fish from the sea, thus impacting depletion of naturally occurring fish stock. It is deeply committed to the sustainability of seafood and ensures its menu conforms to the guidelines laid out by SASSI (South African Sustainable Seafood Initiative), the WWF affiliate in the country.

There is currently also an Ocean Basket branch at Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport, giving globetrotters the opportunity to enjoy some of the best seafood choices.

Ocean Basket was established by brothers Fats and George Lazarides, who along with George Nichas, opened their first seafood restaurant in Pretoria, in 1995.

In those days, seafood was a rarity except for the coastal areas, and the three pioneers wanted to make people aware of the food choices they were missing. Today, there are 155 Ocean Baskets which include outlets across Southern Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
