Popular Caribbean food chain Turtle Bay opened its first restaurant in East Anglia to the public last week. The 180 seat venue is in the convenient location of Swan Lane, Norwich. The building is Grade II and was previously a Fabric Warehouse.

The conversion of the building has left the public impressed, as it sees the spacious restaurant positioned over two floors. It has a fun design featuring bright colours, a seating area within a Volkswagen campervan and a bar that has been designed to replicate an island hut. In addition, the restaurant also boasts an open kitchen in keeping with the style of the other décor, where diners can see the talented chefs at work.

The restaurant offers traditional Caribbean food inspired by the island shacks and prides itself on the succulent jerk flavourings and authentic aromas created by the gifted chefs. This is an exciting opening, with nothing of its type currently in the surrounding area and diners able to try unique dishes from red snapper fish to goat curry. Adults can enjoy an evening at the unique restaurant without worrying about the children as a ‘little turtle’ menu is also available.

The establishment also offers an array of different cocktails made with over 40 different rums, which have all been sourced from the Caribbean. The restaurant promises to deliver jerk, rum and reggae. The lively atmosphere is added to by means of reggae music played throughout the day and into the evening. So if you are staying in one of the many holiday lodges Norfolk has to offer, why not enjoy a night out trying some delicious dishes and tropical cocktails?
