Try the daim cake, its wicked :-)
Well get the meatballs of course... Why else?
Love those meatballs with chips and gravy.... yummy!
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.
Follow the two big chimneys you can't go wrong
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
Saturday morning fry up at Ikea from 10 till 11am. 8 items for only £2.95. What's not to like?
How do I get out of here?

If you're buying a lamp - check it has bulb inside!
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.
Chastise greatly those who walk against the direction of the arrows. They will appreciate being shown the errors of their ways!
Say hi to the restaurant peeps holla big H
You can just pick up a mug or glass from a discarded tray and use that for refills if you are feeling really, really tight. If not it's only 70p for unlimited cold drinks and 80p for hot ones.
Make sure you have an Ikea hot dog while you're here! It's super yummy and not to mention only costs 60p!
Smaland for children is free for an hour - big queues during peak times though
Meatballs are a must!
Get there before 15:00 on a weekday (if possible) and the place is pretty much empty.
Family deals in restaurant. Kids menu great value and lots of choice
Swedish meatballs are great
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.
60p for a hotdog, can't go wrong with that!!
You cant miss the chimneys of the old Croydon power station. Also pick up some Daims, köttbullar and grädsås
Nothing rubbish furniture lemming like people
Nothing apart from watching the sheep follow the sheep lol
first time in ikea!!!!!
Meatballs. Elderflower cordial. Chocolate muffin. And then go crazy in the marketplace.
Forget the furniture head straight for the food shop
Get in early and try the breakfast with a side of pancakes!!! Nothing left!!
Haven't the prices gone up in Ikea so badly??!
The morning English Breakfast upto 11 @ £2.75 is good value
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.
Very sad that the Lamb Shank not on the menu tonight :( would like to say that the alternatives were ok; but not gonna say that. Sorry IKEA :(
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)
Gents toilet 2/10
Absolute hell. That's 3 hours of my life I won't get back

Kid's meal with free fruit and drink for 99p.
Store opens at 10am mon-fri but get here early and get some breakfast use your ikea family card for a discount.
Family card gets you discount even if you are Not with the family...
If you have the option... Goto Ikea in Tottenham! The staff there are much friendlier and the food is loads cheaper too!!!
Go on a Tuesday afternoon, find yourself a sofa, lie down and listen to some of the 90s cheesiest hits.
Daim cake is really good & the coffee's not bad either!
try the marinated smoked salmon :)
The pasta with tomato sauce was a let down. Though this store is still the best branch in the London vicinity.
Don't pick up yellow bag until you've picked up other things.
