Mr Lee not just a fictitious character, but a real person, who is both the creator and owner of the Mr Lee’s Noodles brand.

EAT. Manchester Arndale Review: May 2017
With 20 years’ experience and over 100 shops based in the United Kingdom EAT. know a thing or two about fab fresh food. Seasonal changes mean that new fresh innovative menus are launched frequently. Food waste is also managed at EAT. where the brand donates as many of their leftover sandwiches and salads as possible to local charities that work with the homeless. They also work closely with the homeless charity Crisis, so this is a winner for me!
Turtle Bay Blackburn New Menu Review: May 2017
Boom! Back again at Blackburn’s Turtle Bay for some cool Caribbean chilled vibes. News of the new menu has spread fast and this exciting foodie news really had my taste buds tingling. Shown to our seating, we were greeted by the lovely Jacob, one of the brands senior management figures, who spent some time speaking with us. However, Jacob soon had to head off, as he clearly adopts a hands-on management style, as throughout the evening he got stuck in with the team, helping them with everything from serving meals, organising the pass and cleaning cutlery – Amazing!

Turtle Bay Blackburn Review: April 2017
Trinidad to Tobago, Bahamas to Blackburn’s Turtle Bay where you can sample your very own heat of the Caribbean without having to pack your suitcase and minus the airfare. Welcomed by our server, aka Jamaica’s Jamming Jordan, I knew this visit was going to be hot! Décor colourful, inviting with beach wood style tables and even shack style toilets. Jamming reggae music playing the likes of the classic Bob Marley. The mix of décor, music, happy vibes and atmosphere got me in the summer mood, so the shades went on and it was time to taste some creative cocktails – Caribbean style.
