“Just Ice cream, the rest is failure”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

It' overrated compared to the other equivalent patisseries , the flavour is fine but the prices may sometimes be high for such a patisserie, I prefer Özsüt, their cakes and pastries are much more yummy and the price is almost the same in these two places. The only thing you should try here is Kahramanmaraş Ice cream, that's all.

“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.
