Ocean Basket launches their 11th restaurant beyond South African boarders
Dubai, the setting of the most mind-blowing modern architecture on the planet, also has one of the most fabulous – and busy – airports. In fact it ranks as the busiest in the world in terms of international passengers, serving 150 airlines flying to over 220 destinations on six continents.

And this is the setting for Ocean Basket’s latest venture abroad. Our very own favourite family seafood restaurant is the only South African brand privileged to be granted permission to open a restaurant at the Dubai International Airport. Which speaks volumes for the brand’s quality and service, let alone value for money.
In 2011 the total passenger traffic through Dubai International Airport reached just under 51 million – an eight percent year-on-year increase compared with 47.2 million in 2010. Today the collective capacity of the three terminals is a staggering 60 million passengers a year.
Launching this week, surrounded by the exciting buzz of Dubai International with its fabled duty-free shopping, host of alternative dining experiences, and truly exotic mixture of languages and dress codes from far-flung places, Ocean Basket Dubai also marks the expansion of the brand into international territories, with ten of its restaurants already well-established in Namibia, Zambia, Cyprus and Mauritius. All in all, the brand now boasts 148 restaurants, globally – and still flying!
