“It's MADO! :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

I was there for a few times and always enjiyed their food and great service. I even invited my girlfriend and her brother there. They were impressed by simple tea, prepared the MADO way-and served at that looking silver plate with sweets and small dry grapes...then the food arrived and my friends were impressed even more-they said it to the waiter and he replied proudly: "It's MADO!" AND i COMPLETELLY AGREE WITH HIM! :-)

“So annoying!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Mado ORTAKOY - This place made me feel so terrible. They dont take orders well, they charge u water that u didnt ask for! They brought a wrong order and when i wanted to give it back they made me so uncomdortable with their reaction. Plus they have someone to pull u inside!! This s so so wrong! They think they do business but all they do is to push people away. Now I THANK U MADO FOR RUINING MY MOOD WITH MY FRIENDS. u have to give up this MONEY oriented approach towards tourists and mean what u do.

“Nice desserts but bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

We visited this place because it seemed nice from the outside.
The variety of desserts amazed us.And what we ordered was really good.
The waiter seemed nice however he ended up overcharging us. I told him about the price difference but he said that we were wrong. It was just 2 tl and we didn't want to make a scene.
Anyway,he never received a tip from us.

“Delicious cake and ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

We visited on a busy friday afternoon. We had no problem being given a table and the service was fairly quick. The staff were average.
I had a delicious raspberry cake , my daughter bananna crepe with ice cream and my husband had a Turkish savoury. This is made to order and he was told it would take 10 minutes. Which was correct. We had lovely coffee and enjoyed relaxing there after shopping.
The food and drink were so good we tried another branch the next day but were disapointed.
