Apatura Turkish BBQ Restaurant & Bar

14 S End, Croydon CR0 1DL, UK – 020 8688 9416

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!

Family friendly dining. I rarely venture into a restaurant on a Saturday evening, let alone with my autistic son. We hadn't booked but they found us a quiet table away from the masses. This benefitted us all I am sure but my son felt safely tucked away from the noise. He even ate chicken shish! Great tasty food. Lovely fresh mint tea and the belly dancer was great fun. My daughter (8) got up to dance too and was treated really well. The whole family loved it and asked to return the next night. Thank you.

They were outstanding. With relatives allergic to nuts and fish, the head chef came out and personally delivered all suitable food for the table for the boozy brunch. The way that food is served for brunch was a bit of a headache, but it is made to be understood and made to flow easily and legibly. As for the food, it was incredible. Traditional Indian cuisine, served with modernity I have never seen in all my 30 years. Will go again, once it's known I can afford to do it, but if you need to impress for a date, Karnavar is where you go. All the stars I can give.

Unusual Asian fusion food. Lots of flavours you do not come across in Traditional Indian restaurants. Good varied wine list and Draught Lager/Beers. Good service and reasonably priced for possible Michelin starred restaurant.

Great food.. Lovely place.. Dosa n idly r my favourites.. Best South Indian food in croydon.. No doubt..

Good restaurant with authentic Tamil food however the wait times are excruciating even if you have booked well in advance. Once you finally get sat at a table the waiters take a long time to take your order and and even longer wait for food to arrive. Poor customer service but amazing food if you don't mind the long wait.
