For those of you that follow my reviews, you’ll probably already be aware of my previous Turtle Bay posts. I have been a fan since my very first experience, during their opening week which had me sold at RUM CAKE & BAHAMA MAMA!
This being said, it’s been a wee while since I’ve managed to get across to Turtle Bay, Norwich.
This is the first big menu enhancement that the restaurant has undertaken since it came to Norwich and includes 15 new dishes, 7 new drinks and some new gluten free, veggie and vegan options – YAY!:-D
I was kindly invited to head down for a review and decided to bring an old school friend with me. We started our experience with pre-meal drinks (I know! What was I thinking!?), before being greeted by Tom who very kindly took us over to our table…
The menu has been inspired by the feedback from guests but still stems from the Caribbean culture that Turtle Bay is all about (I personally didn’t have any problems with the previous one, but I’m always happy to try new food!). The dishes continue to celebrate Turtle Bay’s signature flavours with some fresh new twists and offer more choice for those with allergies and dietary requirements. I noticed there was also some healthier options on the menu too. The classic dishes such as the famous Jerk Chicken and Curried goat that I tried on my first visit to Turtle Bay are still on the menu which I was pleased to see. Our servers were all very friendly, happy and always available if we needed more drinks etc.
