Went for a dinner last night at Mado restaurant. I ordered Lamb Kofte with rice. Basically it’s lamb patties served with a special aromatic rice and green salad as the side dish. You will definitely need to try those lamb patties. Not rare, not over cooked, just perfectly cooked and juicy with the taste of mixed spices. Before the main... More

On Friday and Saturday evenings they have bellydancing performance. The girl-performer is really beautiful and professional. I am a connoisseur of bellydancing, and this girl is one of the best I've ever seen! It is worth seeing! And she interacts a lot with the guests (shows the dance elements). Overall I enjoyed the restaurant. Delicious food (we had a banquet),... More

The food was below average quality and outrageously overpriced. Go somewhere else if you are after value for money and want a quality meal.

Mado has become our "place to meet" for a group of friends varying from 6 (today) to 26. We are always catered for table wise and greeted warmly each time we arrive. The service is friendly and timed to suit our reunion style get togethers. Food is always fresh, hot, and tasty. An extensive menu including vegetarian options, prices vary... More

Went here for dinner with family and friends and all were impressed with the service and meals. My partner had the best steak either of us had ever tasted which was surprising considering its a turkish restraunt and not their specialty. Very impressed. Meals were large and reasonably priced. Staff were attentive and friendly and allowed us to split the... More

Tonight was my third visit and will be my last because the attitude of the man who settled our bill was so rude when we asked to pay separately (two separate payments - not multiple!!!). There is no need for such bad-manners!! There are plenty of restaurants that do not have a problem with paying separately or if they do... More

The wait staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The decor is beautiful and authentic creating an awesome experience. The food is excellent. Beautiful flavours and generous... More

My wife and I had an early lunch here on Sunday before heading to QPAC to see a show. We had the Chef's Offer of Ali Nazik...one serving with the Adana Kebab and the other with chicken Shish. Both were delicious. The marinated chicken was juicy and tender and the lamb was enough to make it very flavoursome. The roasted... More
