“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Great Turkish restaurant with nice food and good service with Belly dancer on week ends.
Staff is friendly, missing the Italian waitress who was working during Xmas though.
Well done for your awards!

“Great Christmas dinner with Maria Sharapova!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Mado was one of the few places open on Christmas Day for dinner, and they thankfully took reservations the day of! It was fantastic food and service, very authentic, and imagine our surprise when I recognized one of the best female tennis players in the world, Maria Sharapova, walking to a reserved table in the back with a group!! Makes for a great Christmas story :) Awesome spot, great food and some of the best service we received in Brisbane. PS, they will ask you if you want some bread and dips to start, but just be prepared that you'll be charged for it…it's not like bread and olive oil at restaurants in the States. Enjoy!

“Yum yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

Had a lovely dinner with friends. Decor very middle eastern, more so then the restaurants in the Middle East! I had the fish, absolutely amazing. Another meal on the table was the chefs special, a lamb kofta dish-wow. After dinner, went outside for an espresso and shisha. Perfect end to a delicious meal. Only downside- bless her heart but I couldn't understand a word our Swedish waiter was saying

“best Turkish Restaurant ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Went dinner with three friends here last week. The foods served were awesome, plus the service was good as well. Two big thumbs up from me! I will definitely go here for dinner next time in future. A highly recommended restaurant if you love Turkish food! Keep up your good job Mado!

My first time eating here, ordered Mado prawn really love the meal although not a favor of cheese and surely will order for lamb cutlet next time (i took some from my friend's) very succulent and delicious. Thanks for the service.
