I had a very disappointing experience with Olive Tree. Menu prices are very expensive and the value just is not there. They stopped putting any pine nuts or almonds on their dishes. They charge premium prices for their menu items without even providing tab water to drink. They nickel and dime you for everything. At the top of that, they... More

It's been at least 4 yrs since I'd been to Olive Tree. But I'd been seeing their mansaf specials on Fridays on Social Media & this time the photo motivated me & I'm glad it did. When I picked up my order, Alan (one of the owners) engaged in very pleasant conversation. I'd ordered the mansaf special, side salad &... More

The owner is the Chef,don't ask for the recipe as I have been informed they will die with the... More

We were craving Middle East food so someone recommended the Olive Tree. It is located in a little shopping strip called Little Arabia. As it was mid week and after the lunch rush so there was a small crowd. However, I am told that Fridays and Saturdays it gets crazy busy. As soon as we were seated, the owner came... More

If you are looking for somethings different, that is the place. It smells good, the food is spicy but not hot, and delicious. The middle east flavor in Anaheim. Service is efficient and rapid. Do not forget to try an Arabic coffee, a must really, as if you were over there. A couple of tables outside also allow you to... More

You got a hankering for Middle Eastern food while in Anaheim, you must visit this restaurant. Trust me, I travelled all the way from Sydney, Australia, to eat at this place! The locals ALL know this place for fine Middle Eastern cuisine that doesn't disappoint. My mouth is watering as I remember the rice wrapped in vine leaves; the succulent... More

I had a major craving for falafel because where I live it's impossible to find some. I found myself cruising up and down Brookhurst and this place called to me. When I saw they had Arabic TV on I knew this place was legit. Then we sat down and they brought some delicious olives and soup to "cleanse our palates".... More
