Thanks so much to all staff at Mado for our lovely meal last night. The service was friendly and professional, food was delicious and the atmosphere was welcoming. You could tell by the large group next to us that this is a regular for many locals, which is always a plus. We both had lamb, which was tender and tasty.... More

We had an excellent dinner (pide and lahmacun) and a few beers the other day. To finish off the meal we ordered two Turkish coffees. The coffees came in silver looking traditional coffee cups and included a small but delicious Turkish delight ( rose flavoured). My partner being a coffee addict ( and to say the least) a self proclaimed... More

We went to Mado last night my husband had some reservations about the cuisine and whether he would like it but this was quickly dispelled when the Meze platter came out with the most delicious Turkish bread and olives. I had the chicken casserole and rice which had an amazing depth of flavour. Service was quick and efficient and very... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant for our night out. We ordered Mixed Grill Platter and Ali Nazik Adana. If you're looking for a place that knows how to do their meat well, definitely give this restaurant a try. And save some room for desserts. We had the rice pudding and chocolate pudding. Double thumbs up!

If you're looking for really good Turkish food, this is as good as it gets(best that I've had recently). The Iskender Kebab(they used Adana instead of doner kebabs) and Pide Pizzas are really good as are their Sis Kebabs. It's next to a park and the kids had space to run around while waiting for the food to arrive. Will... More

This is our 2nd time to Mado, the last was 12 months ago. Last time everything was above average. This visit was a bit disappointing. I will not be turned off because they might have had a bad night. The main thing was we were in a large group and only 4 of us wanted to share our meals. The... More

Stopped in for lunch during the holidays, as it was well reviewed and the nearby choice wasn't extensive given the time of year. It may be that our menu choices weren't the best (we opted for seafood, which granted may not be MADO's speciality) but were disappointed with the pretty bland, stodgy fare served up. Given it's not cheap, you... More
