At Mado I enjoyed generous serves of crispy lahmacun and some refreshing traditional Turkish tea. Umut the manager and his staff were exceedingly friendly and attentive. The restaurant has a great atmosphere - authentic turkish decor such as cezves and traditional urns are a beautiful point of difference to other Turkish restaurants. 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

We have been here several times and it is by far the best Turkish in Brisbane. The place is very well themed embracing the Turkish culture. The staff have always been friendly and accommodating. On our most recent occasion we ordered the calamari, a mixed grill platter, a chicken shish, a chicken casserole and the lamb cutlets. The calamari were... More

I have visited Mado several times in the past year and I am never disappointed! The food and the service are superb and its location at the heart of the south bank makes it a perfect spot for a midweek meal or a weekend dinner. The middle eastern atmosphere with the decoration, the music and live dance performance takes you... More
