At The Ocean Seafood Restaurant, it’s all about the clean uncluttered flavours that celebrate the natural essence and freshness of seafood. The emphasis is definitely on high quality ocean fresh seafood served just the way you like it. The luxuriously vibrant restaurant has revamped its already fabulous menu to entice and indulge the seafood connoisseur. Glitter and glamour are all part of The Ocean Seafood Restaurant at The Kingsbury: the linen, the cutlery and the crockery set the standard – deluxe all the way. The need to provide nothing but the best extends naturally to the food; the straight off the net seafood is at its freshest and only the best end up on the display counter. The bountiful spread of fresh seafood arranged tastefully beckons the diner as you enter, with a sleek yet bustling open kitchen in the background. If luxury and sophistication are not part of your seafood soirée, don’t despair, there’s an expansive outdoor deck overlooking the mighty Indian Ocean offering relaxed al fresco dining at its best. The cool sea breeze and the breathtaking view are all part of the experience. If the setting has upped your expectations, the menu promises nothing less. Chef Kithsiri De Silva with his team of enthusiastic chefs has put together a superlative menu that caters to the discerning diner. The new menu invites you to be adventurous, take your pick from the day’s catch on display and have it cooked to your liking with the help of the endless list of suggestions on the menu. The variety that’s on display is enough to send you on that frustrating path of indecisiveness. The choice is extensive. There’s something for everyone, whatever your preference may be. The seafood display is brimming with the freshest of the ocean’s bounty: crabs of all sizes, lobsters, oysters, clams, mussels, shrimps, prawns, squid and a variety of fish. You are truly spoilt for choice. The extensive menu offers a mind boggling array of preparations. There’s much thought that’s gone into planning the menu. Your lobster can go many ways, from Continental; thermidor, Provençale or grilled, Middle Eastern, Chinese, Thai to Sri Lankan. The crab, fish, squid and prawns take the same eclectic international route. Prefer it simply baked, grilled or steamed? It’s all on the menu. There’s freshly shucked oysters to slurp down with a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of herbs or just steamed to perfection, succulent mussels and clams sautéed or steamed. Still looking for more options? Try out the chef’s special. While the seafood market theme is the show-stopper, popular seafood restaurant fare makes an appearance on the new menu, bouillabaisse, laksa and chowder have made it into the list of soups. The range of salads includes spicy fried ‘handella,’ Caesar salad, a warm Thai salad to name but a few. Hot appetisers come in the form of deep-fried and baked treats. The ubiquitous sushi and sashimi have also booked a firm place on the menu. For the carb addict there’s a choice of rice, noodles and potatoes. And of course the ‘feel good’ servings of vegetables prepared in many ways. The Ocean Seafood Restaurant has all the vital components that make seafood-inspired dining so great: fresh produce, great ambiance and attentive service and a seafood spread like no other, prepared by a skilled team of chefs.
