We ate here twice. The main Prawn dishes are good. One has to be specific as to how they want their prawns grilled. Many other menu items besides the prawn and white wine favourites. i will definitely go back but only on those occasions where...More

A must when in Umhlanga for the best king prawns. It is one of the older restaurants in Umhlanga but the food is really great. Worth a try.

We were at the coast for a few days, and for so long I have been looking forward to some very nice prawns. So, I decided to treat myself one afternoon. There are just so many restaurants in Umhlanga, and it is quite difficult to...More

One of our favourite places to have prawns. We opted for the kilo of queen prawns which we shared and once again they were beautifully cooked. Finished the meal with a Dom Pedro each - great to be back.

Food was overcooked (prawns, lobsters), fries and onion rings were soft and crunchier/better cooked by any fast food restaurant. Oysters weren't shucked properly (adductor muscle not cut). Very poor performance by a restaurant that calls itself a seafood restaurant. We were heavily disappointed. Unless you...More

This is a favourite eatery for our family. We have never been disappointed. The service is good, the food delicious and well presented not to mention the outstanding curry. Good value for money. Worth a visit or three.

The place is very old in that it has been around for over 25 years. The food and service bears testament to the fact they have survived in such a competitive environment seeing many restaurants come and go fast in the 25 yr period.

We have been visiting Lord Prawn for the past 21 years. It never fails to please! The food is excellent - seafood or otherwise - but the prawn special is legendary and affordable! The Avocado Ritz is yummy and the fresh local oysters are delicious...More

Hi, I would like to celebrate my 29th birthday at Lord Prawn this coming Friday evening (19 February 2016). I will be joined by my wife, both parents and my 8 month old infant. Can you cater for my little girl? (high chair etc.) We were regulars back in the early noughties (between 2001-2004) and we loved the food. I am so happy to see that you have made the Top 10 and will greatly appreciate your accommodation this Friday evening. I look forward to a positive response and I hope you have a great day. Kind regards Tamish
