Restaurant Review: Turtle Bay
Restaurant: Turtle Bay
Location: John Bright Street
People had been banging on about this Turtle Bay place for what seemed like forever... so the day before our holidays, myself and Steve (my boyfriend) went.. and by golly were we glad we did!
A bit of background knowledge for y’all… Turtle Bay is a group of 9 Caribbean restaurants placed all over the UK, helping to share the Caribbean love! Opening its doors in Birmingham in April 2014 on John Bright Street, it sits neighbouring Brewdog and opposite Cherry Reds (Note: a great area to spend an evening in Brum!)
I began our order with cocktails as we had landed a seat during their 241 happy hour! Steve was driving so was on the soft drinks; therefore I doubled up and ordered 2 Raspberry Reggaes. Not an adventurous cocktail, just a little white rum, raspberries, lime and soda but it was the middle of the afternoon so give me a break. Verdict = The cocktails are good! I also scoped out the cocktails people were drinking at the bar and the more exotic cocktails, such as Koko Colada look amazing!
Now for the food.. for a starter I opted for the Jamaican Fried Bait and Steve had Jerk Pit Ribs.
Main, I choose the Jamaican Browned Chicken One pot and Steve had the Jerk Chicken.
The portions are great sizes which meant we unfortunately/regrettably couldn’t manage dessert. That saying, if my stomach would have let me I would have had the Rum & Raisin Bread Pudding!
I’m not sure if all couples are like this but we love playing the ‘guess the bill’ game and we were both pleasantly surprised, with a nice total of £37.50 for starters, mains, cocktails and soft drinks.
All in all I would definitely recommend you visit Turtle Bay! Don’t let the fact it is a chain restaurant put you off as it’s serving up great authentically cooked Caribbean food. Here’s the menu…. take a look for yourselves!
