Rum, reggae and jerk are coming to the borough with the opening of a new Caribbean restaurant.
Turtle Bay in the Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre will welcome its first customers on September 26, the first time the group with 10 sites in the UK ventures to London.
The vibrant and laid-back themed eatery and bar will encapsulate the lively, soulful, fun vibe the Caribbean is well-known for.
It will feature a large restaurant space, central island bar, and indoor veranda-style drinking spaces, designed to encourage long, lazy lunches as well as loud parties.
More than 50 dishes will be offered, full of bold and authentic flavours, ranging from zesty tastes to spicy hits.
The signature dishes will include Jerk Pit Ribs, Turtle Bay Patties, Trini Doubles and Blue Mountain Curry Goat.
Creative cocktails will also be on the menu with rum at the heart of the list, and Turtle Bay use Blackwell Rum created by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell who launched Bob Marley’s career.
Ajith Jayawickrema, Turtle Bay Founder, said: “We can’t wait to throw the doors open to Ealing.
“Turtle Bay is about great food and good times, simple as that. It’s our first venture in the capital and we think this up and coming area will love what we have to offer – its a restaurant as vibrant as the community that we’re looking forward to serving.”
The opening of this restaurant and bar has created 60 jobs.
The team has been selected from a rigorous audition process that uses psychometric tests and limbo dancing and aims to find people who are passionate about the products sold.
Customers are promised they will receive a warm welcome from individuals who love what they do.
