This is a nice little spot, small, buzzing atmosphere. The staff were so friendly and extremely attentive. The food was amazing, you look down the menu and you see kebab this and kebab that, but flippin heck, what turns up on the plate looks amazing and it's so far from what the word kebab conjures up for most of us...

My son decided he wanted to go here for his birthday meal, having been here in February. Once again, the service was excellent, the staff friendly and helpful and the food arrived very promptly. Starters were tasty and were sensible portions. The mains were all well prepared and tasty. The restaurant was full (Friday evening) and there was a nice... More

For main the chicken and beef kebabs were lovely and well presented. Service was very friendly and despite being quiet the atmosphere was good. The pizzas looked nice and will... More

Booked here last minute on a Friday night. The restaurant itself is very small but I pefer that to big chain restaurants, the service and food was fantastic, we had a mixed hot starter and then shared two types of kebabs for mains, my partner ended up stealing my lamb kebab and can't stop talking about it, surprising considering he...

We love going to the Olive Branch. The food's always excellent, the staff terrific - friendly and attentive, and when our grandchildren are with us it's still a great experience. Thank you to everyone at the Olive Branch. Oh, and the prices are very reasonable.

We booked late so ended up sat near the door which was cold and draughty every time it was opened for those leaving or arriving (a outside porch would solve this) but as soon as a table was available we were moved further inside and problem solved. This was an example of how attentive the staff were service was very... More

Visited the Olive Branch with friend on a busy Saturday night. Right from arrival the customer service was first class. We were greeted at the door by staff and shown to our table. Being near the door which was quite chilly the staff unprompted moved us to a warmer spot. It's a small restaurant but has a lovely welcoming atmosphere.... More

We went there for the first time last night . Superlatives-I don't know where to start. The food is superb-beautifully cooked, well seasoned and plentiful . The ambience of the place is great and I can see why so many people coming in were obviously repeat customers. The service was excellent and attentive- nice touches like bringing more bulgur wheat,... More

I don't live far from this restaurant but for some reason or another had never quite made it in. Me and my partner went on a Thursday evening and it was packed! I now know why. From start to finish the service was warm, friendly, attentive but not claustrophobic - I'm not sure why others have suggested the service wasn't... More
