This restaurant serves great selection of Turkish delights with a good range of vegetarian options. They have a decent selection of entrees as well as dessert options. Besides their main course if filling.......a little pricey but worth it.

The venue is adjacent a lush open park... More

Great choice for catch ups with friends or family. Their Moussaka is amazing. Corkage can be a little steep, but still the best Turkish restaurant I've been to in Brisbane.

We came here for a meal on Mothers Day and loved it. Back today for the Turkish ice cream, closest thing to the authentic ice cream we got in Turkey.

It was my wife's birthday, and we decided to celebrate the occasion at Mado's. The experience we received was fantastic. They sang to my wife 'Happy Birthday" and also gave her a free desert to have, and the rest of our meals were very nice and delicious. We will most recommend this place to our friends and family
