The best Asian restaurant in SoFla
Really enjoyed this place. The food, the service, the ambiance were all fantastic. I could come back here over and over. It's also not too expensive. Everyone in my group really liked it, too. The brussels sprout may sound unappealing, but was really incredible. I usually don't eat Brussels sprout , but this really impressed all of us. I would also recommend the Mushroom , tuna tartar , the aloi roll( the best roll I ave ever ad ), the tropical tuna is amazing too. Every dish is so delicious . All in all, this is one of the best asian restaurants I've been to in south Florida .

This is a great place to try a variety of excellent dishes- take friends who like to share small plates. Plenty in each dish for four to share, attentive and helpful waitstaff.

Highly Recommend DAPUR!!
Dapur was out of this world. From the small plates to dessert, the food was fresh and incredibly delicious. We come here regularly every time we get a chance and sooooo well worth it! We have brought so many friends and turned them into Dapur's regulars as well. I highly recommend!

We went with a group of 6, we had reservations and we were running late. The restaurant was very accommodating and held our table and seated us promptly when we arrived. Service was very good, despite some previous reviews stating otherwise. The food was excellent, we ordered several dishes and shared. We sampled the brussel sprouts, scallops, rock shrimp, beef tataki, cerviche, duck, and dumplings. Everything was delish! Atmosphere was very nice, a bit nicer then your typical asian restaurant. I would recommend dining here and plan to return soon!

Loved the Place
First time here. Atmosphere great, as well as the service. Ordered 7 small plates & dessert (No large plates this time). All excellent, but if I had a choice, would skip the Korean Short Ribs next time. Edi the owner is hands on & energetic. Was so impressed I booked a party here for next month!!

Everyone had an amazing time
I brought a group of 10 people for dinner. For us, the "sharing plates" worked very well! Perfect for a group of friends or close business co-workers. The service was energetic and engaging.I was the only one ever came to Dapur and let Our server gave us a solid menu presentation and we leaned on him to guide us through the dining experience. The bang bang scallops is a must have! The Brussels Sprouts is to die for, the grill Calamari is something we can't forget, tuna tartar, bakwan, martabak, Kobe beef slider and everything else:) Everyone of us had an amazing time.

What a find
Nestled in a strip just off Us1 in Ft.Lauderdale is a wonderful place called Dapur. The owner, who had one time was partnered and started Galanga, has developed a menu of Tapas that are the majority of the offerings. Our server guided us through the menu which also offers Big plates as well. We ordered 4 different Small plates that were perfect in every way to our palate and which satisfied our hunger, but we are not huge portion people. The service was "spot on" as the English say. Never had to ask for a thing except a fork since we really don't use chopsticks very well. The atmosphere was pleasant to the eye and the bar/lounge was very energetic with music. All in all , a must when you have the desire for a new Asian experience.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE DAPUR!
Dapur is one of the reasons why I love dine in Fort Lauderdale many of my friends like Dapur too. Hmm..I think Like is a major understatement...LOVE IT!! The food, service, and atmosphere were all outstanding.
8/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Love the food - drinks - atmosphere
We live in Miami and we came to Open Table to locate a restaurant East of I-95 in Broward County to discover Dapur Asian Tapas & Lounge to meet with another couple from West Palm Beach - what an amazing food and drink tasting adventure we went on! We shared 2 small plates of Short Ribs which were fabulous and 2 large plates of Pad Thai and Lamb Shanks with Chocolate Volcanos for desert. All of the food we tried was fabulous and the 4 various specialty drinks that we had were also perfect! By the way, the Service was very good and very knowledgeable about the menu items. Complimentary Valet Parking was an added touch!
We look forward to our next adventure at Dapur.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated our daughter's birthday and decided to try Dapur. We had heard it was very good and we certainly agree. We tried a variety of small plates, the scallops were our favorite, but everything we tried was delicious! Service was very good as well. Only comment we would have is the tables were too small to handle a variety of dishes all at one time. Our table for 4 would have worked much better for two. Otherwise we loved our experience and are looking forward to returning.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simply the best !!
We have been to dapur countless time. This restaurant is simply the best!! Every time we bring friends, they always comeback with or without us.
8/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Can't give enough praise. Go there!
Sunda exceeds all the hype and anticipation with a perfect dining experience. The cuisine is diverse southeastern Asia so choices are far-ranging! The advice, service and pacing provided by our server, Ryan were flawless. Rudjak salad was a surprise favorite, bang bang scallops were fantastic , several sushi rolls were both interesting and tasty,fabulous rock shrimp tempura and everything else ! Can't give enough praise. Go there!!
8/14/2013 5:00:00 PM

8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dapur addiction!! :)
One of our favorite restaurants for business entertaining . We love love love the Dapur Tuna Tartar. so delicious! My favorite entree is the Chilean seabass -light, perfectly cooked with a savory marinade. But of course I will not pass on my Brussels sprout ! Seriously , no one has this super duper Brussels sprout!! I am addicted to dapur !'
8/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food was beyond outstanding!!
I have to say that the service was one of the best we have ever had. This time We let our server pick the Tapas for us since the menu is large and we had almost everything on the menu before, he did a fabulous job. The food was beyond outstanding, we loved every single dish. The is definitely our favorite restaurant in for Lauderdale
8/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
The ultimate experience .
I brought a couple of friends who have never been to Dapur, They loved their first experience and wouldn't stop talking about it!
8/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Dapur DOES it,---AGAIN and AGAIN!!
I took a friend to Dapur, tonite, for the first time. She was SO IMPRESSED, that she asked to come here this coming Friday nite, for her BIRTHDAY!!! She loved the Coconut Shrimp, the Stuffed Tofu, The Bang Bang Scallops and the Sliders, made with Kobe Beef and served between scrumptious rice patties. And, she loved the Brussel Sprouts sooooo much, that she had to take another portion home for healthy snacking. Our waitress, Ashley, was very gracious and accomodating. She helped to make our dinner a wonderful experience. My friend thought the decor was elegant, and loved the Buddha, "seated" in the main dining room. She felt very SERENE and SATISFIED, after her dinner. Dapur ALWAYS makes MY guests Happy, and wanting to return soon.
8/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
The best Edamame EVER!!
Again, another amazing time. We have tried almost everything on the menu :) the chef surprised us with their new style edamame!! OMG, seriously ?? Those were the best edamame I have ever had !!
8/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Tonite I heard that,--in the next few weeks, Dapur will be open for LUNCH. That is the BEST news, because I am often in the Fort Lauderdale area, during the day. We were in an "exploratory" mood, so we tried some dishes that we had NOT had before. The edamamme was prepared with a subtle and flavorful sauce that made it a wonderful appetizer. The Big Plate of Mandarin Chicken was EXTRAORDINARY. My dining companion and I finished every delicious morsel of this dish. The sauce was amazing. It is now on the TOP of my favorite dish LIST. We also had their flavorful Pad Thai dish. That too, was EXCELLENT. Ryan, our waiter, was his usual gracious and accomodating self. As ALWAYS, we left Dapur feeling soooooooo HAPPY!!
8/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Of the cucumber martinis and brussel sprout appetizer were spot on!

The first impression
We went to dapur for the first time for lunch today. And it was amazing , not as busy as their dinner but I know for sure that they will be busy soon. The price is incredible for lunch. This is going to be our new lunch spot!!:)
10/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
WOW - GO TRY IT OUT
What an amazing place to go to - we went for a four course meal with cocktails
I am a bartender myself and the cocktails blew me away.
Great Service - Andrew and his team delivered an incredible eye for detail, were checking up on us and had a great food as well as drink knowledge.
Make sure you try their take on the Kobe Beef Sliders!!! - You wont regret or forget them :)
We saw the as well the bar area and decided we would be interested in doing happy hour there as well ... very chilled atmosphere, great looking bar area for around I would say 250 people.
Julie the Assistant Manager showed us around, gave us all the details.
Thank you very much for such an incredible evening!!!
We will be back for sure!!!
10/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
One of the best restaurants I have ever been. Must try the Kobe slider , omg !! Seriously , the best slider in the world !! Not. Mention , Brussel sprouts, new style edamame and miso cod!! I want some dapur now:)
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lunch at Dapur is EXTRAORDINARY!!
I took my New York "foodie" friend to Dapur,-- for their newly added lunch. This woman has eaten all over the world. She said that "the Dumplings at Dapur,-- are the BEST I have EVER had." Then she tasted the Brussel Sprouts. She said " these are EXCEPTIONAL too." We wound up ordering two more orders of Brussel Sprouts and two more orders of Dumplings. We then FEASTED on the Chicken with Orange Sauce, which was SUPERB!. My friend asked for a menu , to SHOW her other "snowbird" friends, the fabulous array of choices at DAPUR. Eddie, the owner, was his USUAL gracious, self. The elegant,serene ambiance, and the friendliness of our server, created ANOTHER OUTSTANDING dining experience. We departed feeling RELAXED, and PAMPERED !
10/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
second time back within a week
I think that says it all - Outstanding one more time!
Try the Cucumber, Gin and Elderflower Martini - absolutely delicious!

Delish At Dapur
Fort Lauderdale has slowly been gaining a reputation as a bastion of food innovation. And I don't doubt that for a bit. I have been dining in some of Fort Lauderdale's best-kept secrets for many years now, and I must say it's quite an experience. This so-called food revolution happening here has seen many of the country’s best new restaurants sprouting like mushrooms on this festival coast. And for those of you searching for a culinary experience like no other, look no further than Dapur Asian Tapas & Lounge. Though I would love to be selfish and keep Dapur all to myself, there’s no doubt a table Dapur at will quickly become the hottest reservation in town. Applause to proprietor Edi Mulyanto!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
A real gem tucked into a mini-mall
The small plates are terrific (with a few exceptions). The Scallops are perfectly seared and come with Brussels Sprouts which are sweet and crisp/tender. We love the Ceviche and the individually ordered Brussels Sprouts are worth a try too. Basically, we've learned to stay away from the red meats, but all of the fish and vegetable dishes are unique and delicious. Also, they have a really fun bar as either a destination or just to hang out before you move to the dining room.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very Chic and Cool vibe
Bottom-line - not really my scene - to much of a Miami Bar night club feel ( I'm old) but overall the food is amazing and the presentations of the small plates are excellent. I'm a total food snob so this place does a great job with food for me to give such a great rating…..
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
After 2 weeks missing Dapur, that was the best dinner !!!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delish food, especially the bang bang scallops...just not enough...even for tapas. They could manage to be a little more generous considering the prices. Overall it's a nice place...would we go there again? Probably not.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Craving for more
Dapur has everything, delicious food and drinks, beautiful ambiance , and wonderful service.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
DAPUR is ALWAYS THE BEST!!
We had lunch at Dapur . Our waiter, Derent, was so gracious and attentive, that the EXCEPTIONAL food,-- tasted even MORE EXCEPTIONAL. He was attentive,-- and yet he did not overwhelm us. We had the Bang Bang scallops--which were SUCCULENT and LARGE--and melted in our mouth. The Brussel Sprouts were as usual , absolutely SPLENDID. The Miso Soup was delicious and the BEST, we have ever had. Try their fried dumplings and will truly feel that you are in FOOD PARADISE. The owner, Edi, is so welcoming. He has instituted a complimentary glass of Sangria, for his patrons-- --at lunch,--- which ENHANCES the ALREADY DIVINE food. Dapur is ABSOLUTELY the BEST Thai and Asian cuisine Restaurant in ALL of South Florida. Thanks,-- DAPUR!!!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
I am ADDICTED to DAPUR!
I ate at Dapur twice this week . Once, was for lunch. Tonite was for dinner. I live 35 minutes from Dapur,---each way. But, I love their food so much-- that I make the trip very often. Everything I have tasted from their VARIED menu-- has always been EXCEPTIONAL. I never visit without ordering at least one order of Brussell Sprouts and one order of. Dumplings. I also HAVE to have at least one serving of their CONSISTENTLY large and succulent Bang Bang Scallops. I love their delicious Sliders, served on a rice cake. Their various Shrimp Dishes are noteworthy. And, I often take home their marvelous Pad Thai. My waitress tonite, was Natasha. She was friendly, accommodating and eager to please. Dapur is OUTSTANDING and # One
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food is always amazing. They've just introduced few new items in the menu that's worth to try: the rudjak salad, the Asian delight, or the fire cracker roll. However, we didn't want to skip our favorites : Brussels sprouts , tuna tartar the grilled calamari and the super yummy Kobe slider. Luckily we had 4 other people to share with. Not to mention all of us had at least 2 of dartsmoor martinis, the muddled cucumber, st Germaine and gin. This drink is so addictive!!
