Description: Apatura Turkish BBQ Restaurant is a family run and friendly restaurant in Croydon serving a fusion of traditional Turkish BBQ food in our comfortable and homely surroundings. Situated in the South End Restaurant Quarter on the outskirts of Croydon town centre, Apatura is renowned for its personable service and friendly welcome to all; whether having a leisurely meal or meeting friends and family for drinks in our bar. We also warmly welcome children. We have a kids menu and highchairs are also available. If you’re new to us, and need a bit of help choosing something from the menu, we can recommend our premium meats cooked on a live Mangal, an open charcoal pit that gives the food its unique flavour. You can relax and enjoy a cocktail around our illuminated bar before enjoying our range of traditional Turkish mezes. We are certain there is a dish suitable for everyone!

Only recently found out about this place, BUT what a find. The food and drinks are insanely delicious. Portions are very filling but equally as tasty. I have probably tried everything on the menu and cannot find anything to fault them on. Definitely a gem of Croydon.

Popped in here on a snowy Sunday for lunch..... fairly quiet but no issues as weather not good.
Started with a pint of ale and a selection of cocktails for the girls...... eventually we sat down and ordered everything.....got to say that service was very good when we were served BUT very slow in between and we were the 3rd table seated !!! Asked for a glass of Cava but had run out......food when arrived was good with no issues and finished with some Irish coffee which was also good......no issues just extremely slow service.....all tables filled when we left....wonder how they got on as the waitress admitted/apologized that service was slow.....as she saw that we cleared up the table while waiting after each course........
Would I return.......? yes I would give them another chance as food was fine.....

Early dinner on a Thursday evening and couldn’t have been better - excellent food and service. Have tried many Turkish restaurants both in area and wider and this definitely ranks as one of the best. Go there and try!

Came here last night for our brother's 21st birthday and we were not disappointed! The food was amazing (and very filling) and the portions were great. The price was very decent, and every single one of us enjoyed what we had ordered. The service was also very great - quick and easy. It was the first time we had attended and will definitely be visiting again. So glad it's close by!
