Turkish
Maydanoz is an Aegean Turkish coast inspired bar/restaurant paying homage to regions vegetarian and olive oil driven casual meze bars. Managed by the team behind Efendy and Anason, Maydanoz is located in the middle of the revitalised Sydney CBD. Food The menu is based on produce driven delights of Aegean region of Turkey, rich in culture and variety of the produce, dairy, fish and lamb.
Most of the dishes are prepared ‘zeytinyagli’ style, olive oil poached vegetables served as part of a drinking feast. Imagine dolmas, sarmas and seasonal vegetables with plenty of fresh herbs of the area.
There is a special attention for natural and local Turkish wines from the coastline stretching from Gallipoli on the north to Denizli on the south. We also pride ourselves having a cocktail menu crafted by our head mixologist with special attention to regions produce, like Zumrut ( Emerald) made with bespoke gin and our namesake parsley as a base.

    The food is amazing - particularly halloumi - cooked to perfection - chicken was moist and so flavorful but the best hands down has to be the kanefe ! Absolutely amazing

    This place is a must-go! We had a fabulous experience dining at Madaynoz! From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and looked after. The vibe is buzzing as well! The food is out of this world, topping ALL other Turkish restaurants in Sydney! The authentic flavours & spices just melt in your mouth. Our favourite dishes were their infamous Cabbage Kebab as well as the Leek with Artichoke Cream. Both are exquisite and highly recommended! This place is definitely a must-go!

    Maydanoz is one of my favourite Turkish restaurant in Sydney, the carrot dip, cabbage kebab and the grilled chicken is a must have. As a request to the chef, please bring back the previous baked bread, the flatbread is good, but the previous one went much better with the food.

    The bread, brussels sprouts and haloumi kebabs were our fave dishes. I also really found their take on imam bayildi to be quite unique, the addition of tamarind sauce isn't very common to this dish (I know this because I lived in Istanbul for a little while). I definitely recommend this restaurant!

    Beautiful food, so many lovely flavours. This was one of the best middle eastern restaurants in terms of food that I have visited. The service was a little shaky to begin with but the team got there in the end. Our waiter was kind and had great recommendations.
