I had a seafood platter for one here and it was okay but nothing to write home about

The portion was generous but nothing really had much taste

I would not return here

Being frequent visitors to Ocean Basket, we inquired at Hooked what the difference could be about the quality of food. We were assured that the preparation of the seafood dish was different and more tasty. We decided to take up the challenge. The service was excellent and the pre starter, a large fresh roll with butter and jam with the three sauces were excellent. We ordered the platter for two. The prawns were much larger and the fish was fried to crispy perfection. The incorrect amount of mussels were served which was quickly corrected. We could not fault the quality of the sea food but the taste which is unique to Ocean Basket could not be matched. If a unique taste could be attended to then I am sure Hooked will be a hit. But this dish was really filling and satisfying.

I have visited Hooked in Tygervalley Centre twice this month and i was super impressed.
The staff are all very friendly and welcoming.
I ordered the seafood platter for one the first time i visited and i was very impressed. Everything was cooked and prepared to perfection and the portions they offer is real value for money. The second time i visited, i ordered the muscle and prawn combo and it was simply delicious. I really love the fact that you serve freshly baked rolls with jam,butter, garlic and chillies while you wait for you order and the baked rolls are a real treat. However, the first time i visited, my table of three received three rolls but the second time around, same amount of people but only one roll was received. Other than that, i love the place and will be back again

We initially thought it was Ocean Basket, but we soon realized otherwise. Its a very similar if not the same setup, but their food to me was so much tastier. Fish and chips comes with a creamy garlic sauce. The platter for 1 had bigger pieces of everything on. Service was great. Our new go to place when in Tygervalley.

We tried Hooked because of an online coupon, and were very happy we did.

Similar to the other fish chain restaurant in many ways.

Of deal included mussels, angel fish and calamari. All were excellent!

A choice of chips, rice, stir fried vegetables or hot vegetables as the side.

Notes to forget the large freshly backed mini breads to start, and the decadent malva pudding to push us over the edge.

Great service means I can highly recommend Hooked.

We will be back.
