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.

    We were welcomed warmly, and were guided through the menu. Food was delicious, and so was the Turkish Rose wine. We were out in time for our concert - thanks to the attentive staff.

    Let me start by saying the food was amazing, the service on the other hand was nothing short of abhorrent. We were seated at the island bench and we’re looking forward to watching the kitchen at work. This was not how are meal planned out. While I understand that wait staff want to be attentive the service was overbearing to the point of making us uncomfortable. We were constantly interrupted asking if everything was ok and any plate that was emptied was removed within a minute of this occurring. We had 5 different wait staff bring, take or interrupt our meal and this would happen from the front, side and between us. It boarded on ridiculous.

    The food was fabulous, we enjoyed every dish we tried and will definitely be going back. The restaurant was busy but not overly busy so we felt it was a little rude that the wait staff brought over the eftpos machine before we had even prepared our card for payment.

    the food and service was excellent and certainly enjoyed the innovative cuisine. However, the noise level of the 'background' music was just too much for our 'demographic' - OK for a bar but not for eating.

    Absolutely fantastic! Delicious food - I recommend the feast option. A very interesting wine list - I went with the Chardonnay from Turkey which was superb. The furnishing are divine, decor beautiful and staff welcoming. A must IMO.

    Food was great, as good as the sister restaurant Anason. Barman was busy on his own but a champion. The bar seating is very, very close together a tight squeeze. I would strongly recommend waiting for a table. We ordered the feast and it took a longer than expected and had to leave before the desert came out. I would recommend if you go, have plenty of time to enjoy and reserve table seating.

    Food was good. The bread was delicious. Dishes like the coconut yoghurt and the Murray Cod needed a bit more oomph. Price was on the more expensive side for what you get. Wine was expensive. Service was not good. Almost like they didn’t care about us. Did not get checked on. We had to call for service. The bill came and included a CC surcharge. But then when we paid, another surcharge was added. Two surcharges is not okay.

    Exceptional! It was a real pleasure to try food from other parts of Turkey than we usually get in Australia. Another outstanding offering from Somer Sivrioglu. Must have dish is the Sheep's Head Wedding Soup!

    Excellent food! Nice fitout. Friendly staff but our waitress was not familiar with some of the menu items and seemed to steer us away from menu items which she hadn't tried. Overall, a definite recommend. I will be back to try more dishes.

    Loved the range of plant based menu items. So many to chose from, and certainly all that we selected were delightful -perfectly flavoursome vegetables and accompaniments highlighting Turkish cuisine. Will return to try more on another occasion. Service was friendly and helpful, ambiance - stylish and very comfortable. Highly recommended.

    This was the first time we dined at Maydanoz and it was outstanding! From the moment you step in the door with a lovely and charismatic host Justin to greet you you're overcome with a buzzing atompshere inside an elegantly designed decor. Whether you're after a place where you can sit and relax for a date night or time out with friends or family, the focus in on the Turkish cuisine with shared plates which we loved and the food (with some great recommendations from our host Justin) your palate will be longing to try more :) Highly recommended and great for value for city dining.

    Good new restaurant to try, interesting Turkish food and nice cocktails! Limited booking window but not sure why, given the restaurant only had 3-4 tables in use all evening. Service was friendly but needed a little more attentiveness.

    Very attentive service. Excellent wine list. Food served a little too fast to really appreciate all the flavours before it got cold. Was very comfortable outside with heaters. Cocktails really great.
