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

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

Second time we are having dinner here and second time the food quality is above expectations. We had Mousaka and Lamb Kofta today, and these two just couldn't be any better. The portion sizes are very generous, you also get complimentary freshly baked bread. The place is kids friendly - there are some tables, chairs and toys in the middle... More

First time at Mado with a group of friends for a birthday dinner last night. I had high expectations as I love Turkish food - and was definitely not disappointed. Service - absolutely top notch! We had lovely friendly waitresses who regularly topped up our water, asked if we wanted more drinks, offered clarity around our meal choices. All our... More

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
