There are so many amazing Turkish restaurants in Croydon that we had to make a list of our favourite ones – since our team loves Turkish cuisine so much.
All of these places offer traditional Turkish food packed with flavor and colour, exactly how they make it the best restaurant in Turkey!
We highly recommend the top four Turkish dining establishments in Croydon, deserving of a visit by any discerning epicurean.
Atesh Turkish Restaurant
In this restaurant, you can find everything you need – from a delicious Tabule salad as your starter to one of the best Yogurtlu Kebab served in Croydon!
Our team also really enjoys their Yogurtlu Bakla (beans, bell peppers, garlic, olive oil, parsley, yogurt) and the Falafel which are in the starters section of the menu.
As your main dish, you can’t go wrong with all of their grilled options – from chicken shish and Adana kofte to the Spicy Chicken Thighs and King Prawn Kebab!
Address: 235-241 High St, Croydon CR0 1QR
Apatura Turkish BBQ Restaurant & Bar
Everything on the menu is incredible – from the meze to the grill. We recommend getting their Mix Meze PLatter 1 which has cacik, hummus, mushrooms, falafel, halloumi, and feta cheese borek. All of this is only £15.95.
All of their main dishes include grilled meat on a traditional open charcoal barbeque pit which gives the meat a unique flavor!
However, if you are vegan or a vegetarian, keep in mind that they don’t have many options for you because they are focused on delivering the authentic flavor of traditional Turkish meals – and they either have meat or dairy products in there.
Address: 14 S End, Croydon CR0 1DL
The staff is super friendly and always makes sure to welcome every customer!
In their menu, you can find a selection of Turkish starters like Stuffed Vine Leaves, Cacik, Sigara Boregi, etc.
You can also find incredible kebabs – the Lamb Donner is our favourite. They also offer burgers and delicious Pide (Turkish pizza)!
When you are finished with your meal, make sure you order their Turkish tea as well as the Rice pudding!
Address: 81 London Rd, Croydon CR0 2RF
Korykos Turkish Restaurant & Meze Bar
Their starters as well as the platters they offer are incredible – we love the
Taze Fasulye (cooked green beans, onions, tomatoes, red peppers, green peppers, herbs served with bread), the Kisir as well as the “Hot Meze Platter to Share” which includes halloumi, borek, falafel, and sucuk!
They have fantastic Kebabs, Yogurt Dishes, and much more. We highly recommend their Sarma Chicken Beyti (spicy minced chicken in garlic, mint, and herbs on skewers served wrapped in a tortilla with butter and yogurt)!
Korykos also offer a few vegetarian dishes like Falafel, Vegetarian Musakka (vegetables, tomato sauce, bechamel sauce, Cheddar cheese served with rice and a salad), and Imam Bayildi which is stuffed aubergines with onions, mixed peppers, tomato sauce, served with rice and salad).
