Turkish bar and restaurant on South End.
According to a Croydon Radio interview with the owner in August 2012, it's fine to come in just for a drink, though the main focus of the place is as a restaurant. According to the same interview, they welcome children, and highchairs are available.
Prior to January 2013 it advertised itself as Mediterranean, but it started offering Tex-Mex food too when the Conchitas site across the road closed down due to the landlord asking for a large rent increase; Apatura and Conchitas had already been under the same ownership, so the Conchitas staff and menu moved across to the Apatura site. However, by December 2019 the Tex-Mex food was no more and it was now advertising itself as Turkish.
