What an eclectic restaurant. From decor to food, this night spot ticks all the boxes. We were lucky enough to dine here after they added the world famous 'Kibbeh' to the menu. All our friends agreed that the food was incredible. Taste, presentation, delivery - all 10/10. The only downside to this spot is the music, giving you an odd... More

Our meal consisted of a sumptuous Mixed Grill Platter (Lamb Shish, Chicken Shish, Kofte Izgara (Lamb Patties) served with rice & mashed potatoes; and... More

I went to Mado to have dinner with friends and ordered the mixed grill. It's the best mixed grill I've had in Brisbane by far. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Turkish cuisine or even has never tried turkish cuisine. You won't be disappointed. Trust me!

Visited Mado on a Sunday night and there was belly dancing! It was a very entertaining performance! We were all impressed with the food, service and entertainment. The food quality was excellent and rather big portion. I reckon the stars of the night were Mixed Grill Platter and the Baklava, oh and not forgetting the freshly baked Turkish bread! The... More

The sauce that comes together complimented the meat's taste. The dip for the turkish was so interesting and amazing. Services was friendly and helpful. Overall,... More
