MADO will surprise its customers with good view, friendly crowd and support staff with mind blowing fried calamari. Their serving size is generous and you can try Sheesha indoors,once you are done eating. Overall a nice environment with a prominent location for tourists. So far the best calamari in Brisbane!

Lovely restaurant in the Southbank area. Was very busy on a Saturday night, but lots of seating and waitresses. The meal was delicious and the service was very friendly. Nice surprise at the end with a Belly Dancer. Would certainly go back again.

We hadn't eaten at many turkish restaurants before but were very impressed by the food and service. The belly dancing entertainment was also a great surprise that we thoroughly enjoyed.

Of all the restaurants in Southbank we decided to try Mado and were nothing but impressed. We felt so welcome and appreciated the relaxed atmosphere. The food was incredible and Lejla made us feel right at home. We wish there was a Turkish restaurant of this quality on the Gold Coast. We will be back!

Looking for somewhere to eat on good Friday when most of Australia is closed, we stumbled upon this inviting oasis of colour and light during a wander along the south bank. The atmosphere is fantastic, the food absolutely delicious with large portions and the service is fast and friendly. Our party of 5 had all Sorts of different food requirements... More

Been in Brisbane a long time and I have just discovered Mado what a great discovery. Food was excellent and plenty. We felt very welcomed from the moment we walked in. If you like Turkish food you have to try this one.
