Should you be looking for good seafood in Umhlanga. Lord prawn is the best. Well prepared seafood range and great specials. Try the crumbed prawns as a main and for starters their fish cakes with a kick. Good food all round.

Food is excellent, especially the Kingklip! They are more than 43 years in business. Prices are very good too.

Lord Prawn has been a top restaurant for seafood over many years and did not disappoint this time. The platter for one, the prawn special and the prawns and lobster meals can all be recommended.

If you want prawns in the Durban/Umhlanga area come here. I still don't know anywhere better. Their descriptions of Queen Prawns put the francised chains to shame.
