Walking around Brisbane is a perfect idea to find some nice restaurants. Mado is rather unnoticed given its location which is not easily seen from the outside. Anyway after finding Mado we were welcomed by the cheerful waitress. The nice weather allowed us to sit outside. The menu has varieties of turkish local cuisine. We ordered the adana kebab, kofta,...

Really nice dinner, I had the mixed grill platter and the meat was delicious. The salad consisting of mixed leaves and raw onion was a bit ordinary, but the bread, rice and dips were very good. Best part of the dinner was the belly dancer, she was just lovely and engaged with the diners, getting some of them to dance.... More

Great food, polite and friendly service, reasonable price! Despite having busy restaurant, usually they are appropriately quick. The quality of food is good. Belly dance on Friday/Saturday night is interesting, although a bit noisy, if you are not interested in!

If you are looking for the most authentic Turkish experience around, you have found the right place. Mado serves an array of delicious Turkish meals with a welcoming hospitality. The chargrilled meat selection is a must try with the mixed grill platter being a good option as it includes chargrilled kofte (Turkish meatballs), tender lamb and succulent chicken, all served...

We have recently been to the Middle East and were impressed by the authenticity of the food at Mado. A large group was celebrating a birthday and having a great time. The service is quick and friendly. There is a huge menu from which to choose, including set banquets to share. We were just sorry that we were not there... More

Very impressed with Mado -- it's huge, most of the time full though. Very tastefully decorated, nice shisha corner at the back, food is really good (The lamb chops are to die for), so is the presentation. The servers are very friendly and always smiling. Service was great and fast, we didn't have to wait at all although the restaurant... More
