Nobody cooks Greek food like your Greek grandmother or Greek mother. But...Olive is as close as you can get without the family gathering. Give it a try. I've been eating Elena's food for nine years and love it. Enjoy and OOPAH!

I had very good lamb roasted with Greek spices. I always like Greek food because it reminds me of trips to that beautiful country. I'm giving it four stars because the portions weren't that big though the food was very good. It's the only place I know in Bangkok that has retsina wine. You can only buy it by the... More

Olive is a well known Greek place with outlets in the malls etc, I have always enjoyed the food. This latest branch of Olive is in a quiet soi off Ekamai Soi 12, decor was simple and nice, food came fast and was tasty. Will definitely go back.

Dear Ulisan, I have read your comments on our restaurant and I feel I ought to reply. Our restaurant accepts criticism since this is the only way we can improve on our standards of food and service. Taste and preference are always subjective. Someone likes more garlic, someone likes less. Another likes more salt, another likes less. There will always... More

We are very happy this restaurant just recently opened in our neighborhood. We love the Beetroot dip, Dolmades-beef stuffed vine leaf, Falafel, Prawns in fresh tomatoes&Feta sauce. The grilled Haloumi cheese with Rocket salad, Lamb Souvlaki are among our favorites here. Lovely to end the meal with Greek yogurt topping with slided Alomnd&thick honey. A true hidden gems here!!!

Delicious Greek food at it´s best. All my favorite Greek meals are available in the menu. Just try the Pistacchio, Moussaka, Hummus, Pitabread with beef and Tzatziki. The Greek salad is of course made with real Greek olive´s. The staff is kind and attentive. I love to return to this restaurant again and again.

After the closure of the Greek place in Silom Soi 4 this is the last Greek place in Bangkok that I know of. The people are friendly and attentive, the interior tastefully designed (although it may not have much to do with Greece) and the food is simply great! Lamb, Chicken, Beef, various traditional Greek ways of preparing it with... More

We was thinking what to eat and leaning towards Japanese when we came across Olive. My expectations were low but the food and staff were absolutely delightful. They helped with suggestions and explained about the food. It was a Tuesday night and very quiet. Great food and a wonderful ambiance.

This place serves authentic Greek food, probably the best in Bangkok, and possibly SE Asia as well. I have come here so many times, but always order my favorite Souvlaki Set. Great ambience, and a good place for the whole family.
