Restaurant review: Turtle Bay

A few weeks my boyfriend & I were invited down to try Turtle Baym a new restaurant in Walthamstow with chains also in not only in London but nationwide (Location list here). Turtle Bay is a Caribbean restaurant and since I have never tried much Caribbean food I was really looking forward to it.

When we first arrived we both ordered Cocktails,  they were really delicious and I would highly recommend checking them out. The list of starters or ‘Cutters’ is pretty good too; Pulled Jerk Pork, Fried Squid, Garlic Flatbread, duck rolls and more. It was quite difficult to chose but we went for Garlic ‘n’ Herb Flatbreat and Chilli Fried Squid, which were tasty and I loved the Caribbean twist.

For main course we had Jerk Pit Burger and Double Dipped Steak both of which were nice but not really anything very special with the burger actually being a little dry. Looking back on it I wish I had gone for something a little more traditionally Caribbean such as one of the One Pots or Jerk Chicken. The portions were all quite generous, reasonably priced and we left feeling satisfied.

Overall I think Turtle Bay serves nice food, with great cocktails and starters however you could probably find somewhere a little more authentically caribbean in London as I did feel it was very much adapted to be quite commercial (as you would expect from a chain).

Have you ever visited any of the Turtle Bay Restaurants? What is your favourite Caribbean restaurant?
