Turtle Bay will open for the first time in London alongside Nando's and the Empire Cinema at Cleveland Place
A second restaurant chain has confirmed it will open a branch in the development on the former Arcade site in Walthamstow.
Turtle Bay, which describes itself as a modern Caribbean-food restaurant, will launch its first London eatery in the Cleveland Place development alongside Nando's and the Empire Cinema.
Turtle Bay's managing director Ajith Jayawickrema said: "Walthamstow is an exciting place to be right now, on its way up in every possible way.
"Walthamstow is the perfect place for Turtle Bay to bring our party to next, the area has a special vibe and the community is really fun – just right for our ‘one love’ approach to life at Turtle Bay."
The chain currently has restaurants in Leamington Spa, Leicester, Bristol, Nottingham, Southampton and Milton Keynes.
It is set to open in November 2014 alongside Nando's, the 1,200 seat nine screen cinema complex and retail units at the junction of High Street and Hoe Street.
