    It's an Ikea, limited vegetarian options in the restaurant but some good cakes.

  • Christopher D.

    Croydon B power station was demolished in 1991 and an IKEA store was opened on the site. Two large chimneys were retained and remain a local landmark.

    Plan to be here all day! Great pieces for the home and some great prices. If you don't want the kids annoying you while you shop...there's a play area at the entrance for 3-10yr olds.

    If you are heading straight to the self serve section and want to skip the marketplace, there is a secret passage from the kitchen section to the lighting section. Not so secret any more.

    Make sure you grab a hot dog and refillable drink at the end after the tills. Such good value! 60p for a small (which is actually quite large)

  • Gerri G.

    Get a hotdog on the way out and a drink that you can keep refilling. The lingonberry juice is delish. The frozen cinnamon rolls are ace

    Chastise greatly those who walk against the direction of the arrows. They will appreciate being shown the errors of their ways!

    If you have the option... Goto Ikea in Tottenham! The staff there are much friendlier and the food is loads cheaper too!!!

    Saturday morning fry up at Ikea from 10 till 11am. 8 items for only £2.95. What's not to like?

    Rob Nightingale · December 1, 2012
  • Csaba O.

    Make sure you have an Ikea hot dog while you're here! It's super yummy and not to mention only costs 60p!

    Go on a Tuesday afternoon, find yourself a sofa, lie down and listen to some of the 90s cheesiest hits.

    It's just not a furniture store - grab a bite to eat in the restaurant, its good value for money and the cakes are awesome.

    Richard Jagdhar · July 3, 2012

    The pasta with tomato sauce was a let down. Though this store is still the best branch in the London vicinity.

    Vb Sin · April 29, 2012

    Don't pick up yellow bag until you've picked up other things.

    Steve Kulka · April 1, 2012

    Those paninis are always cold in the middle! Get them to put it in a second time!

    Ritchie Bearfield · January 22, 2012

    99p for kids fish and chips, £3.75 for an adult portion. I say two kids portions and you get more than an adult portion. Do the math
