The Caribean restaurant chain has proven a hit with Romford residents since opening at The Brewery Shopping Centre on November 25.
One reviewer said: “I left a 4-star review for the Walthamstow branch but I’m giving the new Romford restaurant 5.
“It had excellent customer service – managers were extremely friendly and welcoming. Our waitress was lovely.

“The prawn starter was absolutely delicious – some of the best prawns I’ve ever tasted.”
Another diner who awarded the restaurant 5-stars said: “This is the latest venue that is quickly making Romford THE place to go for a night out.
“It is ideally placed with The Brewery on one side and South Street on the other.
“It has a great selection of drinks and food. Have already booked for NYE.”
Someone else who received a 5-star experience said: “I came to Turtle Bay for a friend’s birthday.
“We had the best night! The food was amazing and the drinks were even better.
“We managed to try every cocktail on the menu and can honestly say there was not one that we disliked.
“Fruity, tropical and exotic.
“Gabe and Misha were so helpful and friendly taking us through the menu and recommending drinks which were made by the lovely Stacey.
“We will 100% be coming back.”
The restaurant is Turtle Bay’s 46th across the country and the menu has been created by executive chef Collin Brown.
