This was my first visit to this restaurant and on the recommendation of a colleague we made a group booking. The ambience is nice and although on this visit the belly dancer was not performing we were sure to have a great night.the menu is attractive and varied, however the dishes were generally disappointing. The Calamari greasy and the lamb... More

My first time to this restaurant. It's website states that it was awarded 'Best Turkish Restaurant 2013'. We opted for Banquet 2 (Anatolian Banquet) which started with a platter consisting of turkish bread, hummus, olives, marinated capsicums etc which was to die for. This was followed by marinated calamari, spinach pide and a mixed grill platter, among other dishes and... More

Our party of three lunched here on Monday 29 December 2014. This was our third visit to this restaurant. Unlike our previous two lunches at this place where we dined inside the restaurant, this time we were ushered to an outdoor table under a shade cloth. We were informed that the inside (which was totally devoid of any patrons) was... More

Have been here a few times, and it was a really great experience! Friendly atmosphere, delicious food, and high quality of service make "MADO" restaurant really special. And, of course, a belly dancer is fantastic!

Tried out their bread with humus dip as well as Lamb Shish (marinated and char grilled lamb skewers which comes with rice and mashed potato). The entree had already rendered me in awe as the bread was well-baked with a tad of crunchiness. Its taste was enriched by the humus dip with a harmonious combination between chick peas and garlic.... More

We came here at 9:10 pm and ordered mixed grill and iskendar. The mixed grill dish was very delicious. The iskendar wasn't bad. Turkish tea is amazing. We'll try it in day time, must be nicer!

Me and my friends went Mado for dinner last Friday and i should say that it was an amazing night for us. We celebrated our friend's 25th birthday with Mado's lovely birtday song :) The food was great overall. We started with dips and continued with plenty of traditional Turkish food. I can recommend you my choice as Ali Nazik... More

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
