I am often left disappointed in Australia. Our standard of service is often not up to scratch but I am so happy to have had a meal at Mado where our waitress was the most amazing server and really went above and beyond to ensure we had the best experience possible. The location is open comfortable and inviting not far... More

Had the best Friday night dinner there. Definitely the best Turkish foods I have ever tasted. I had Turkish bread and mixed dip platter as entree. Their humus dip is too die for. So goooooood. For the main meal I had wood charcoal mixed grill that consists of scrumptious, juicy, specially marinated lamb cutlets, chicken cutlets and lamb patties served... More

Brought a friend to celebrate her birthday on a Friday night and it was very lively with a Belly Dancing performance to boot! We had a range of different dips with Turkish bread, a platter of meat shish and the pide. The mint and cucumber dip was the best and I initially thought the sauce that came with the shish... More

Had my birthday dinner at the restaurant. Food were good and the waitresses are friendly. We came exactly when the belly dance started. It was fun to watch and she even danced with few of the customers. I think the place suits for events cause the place can occupied lots of people. I will definitely come here again with my... More

I walked past Mado one night and it was I thought I have to try this place one day since they have quite a few awards posted on the walls - so I did. Overall I wasn't impressed at all. The service was above average and the girl that served us did a good job - very friendly. I had... More

I am used to Turkish in Canberra and this restaurant on the South Bank of Brisbane River was a delightful alternative. We had the cheese fingers, which were dry and had no great flavour and were not hot enough. Yoghurt sauce helped. For mains we had Kebbe and Hunker Begendi (Sultans Delight) The Kebbe was delicious, lamb minced with spices,... More

The food here is usually very nice, well-cooked and authentic, but it always looks like it was plated in the dark. The meals look so ugly it somewhat spoils the enjoyment. If you don't care about that, bump my score up from 'average' to 'very good'. The service is always charming and the atmosphere is pretty lively too.

Credit for accepting a large group booking at late notice. No doubt it is a good, well patronized restaurant. However, the group was served in dribs and drabs to a greater extent than one would normally find acceptable even with a large group. Perhaps a few too many staff? Staff were friendly but not as attentive as would be expected... More

We have been looking for great pied for ages and now we have found it. The menu is very good and well priced. The staff are friendly and at south bank it is central with plenty of seating.
