Alluring atmosphere, luscious meals, mesmerizing shisha!

I am from Azerbaijan which is known with its organic and fresh food, so I am very antagonistic about meals. And believe me this is the BEST place you can eat and spend your ecstatic moments! Thanks to qualified team, I always enjoy my feast at this place! Decidedly endorsed!

I felt sorry for this establishment before I visited because we had just enjoyed a perfect lunch at China Sea Restaurant that day, and I have been to Turkey and enjoyed some brilliant cuisine over there, so my expectations were fairly low.

Went for dinner on a Friday night and had an unreal meal, with excellent guidance from the wait staff on some of the unique Turkish dishes available. The staff were incredibly helpful, and never in the way. On top of that they had amazing belly dancing whilst we ate!!

We enjoyed our pre-theatre dinner at Mado Cafe. Relaxing setting on Southbank Parklands. The Turkish bread was fresh and delicious.

All of the dishes were tasty, well presented and served promptly. The only thing we didn't enjoy... More

Had pre booked a table for 12 on a Saturday night. The food was delicious and was served in a very reasonable time frame. Price was very reasonable and service was excellent most of the evening except for when we wished to order coffee. Overall it was great experience and would recommend to friends.

I'm vegetarian. Actually I've tried many restaurant at Brisbane but Mado is definitely better than other restaurants!!! If you're vegetarian you must try Boat Eggplant at here It's amazing! If you're eating vegetarian food at Mado, probably it will make you happy 😉
