Visited with friends when in Leeds for the weekend. Seated quickly, drinks ordered and served fast. Nice touches- iced glass for the Turkish beer. Comprehensive menu and wine list at sensible prices. Order taken in appropriate time. We ate different starters and mains, good sized...portions and all said to be delicious. Good checkback that we were satisfied, additional drinks served. Servers friendly and professional. Too full for dessert but liquor coffees delicious. Restaurant was busy through the whole time we were there and booking would seem to be advisable. Vibrant atmosphere, quite noisy but tables very well spaced. Happy to call a taxi for us at the end of the meal.More

Had a Saturday lovely lunch recently. The hot sharing platter was delicious and a nice bottle of Gavi complimented the meal. Nice restaurant and staff were really welcoming. Would recommend a visit if you enjoy good food in nice surroundings

Visited last night with friends. The waitresses were really helpful and attentive, and listened to my friend as she is dairy intolerant. They obviously spoke to the chef as came back to us with other options. The food was delicious and plentiful!! We will definitely...return.More

Absolute garbage I’d stay away If you don’t want a pizza that doesn’t look or taste like absolute garbage , photo is old and doesn’t look like what you receive so don’t be deceived!! If you have a problem with your order they won’t refund...but will replace with further crappy food and not give a refund. Manager has a serious attitude problem then calls you making threats by his mobile phone, if there’s a problem with an order they don’t refund either as apparently it’s against there policy!! Definitely not how it used to be!!More

Black Olive is a Greek resturant with se Turkish dishes. I've been there with my wife a couple of times. Prices are avarage. She took a slow cooked lamb shank, with some rice and chips. Taste was good, they warmed it up, some bites were...cold in the middle last time, but that was properly cooked. I took a Margherita and some chips, £9.99 for a standard Margherita is a good price. With few drinks, we spent £35. Not bad at all. Monday to Friday deals are great.More

I just visited alone for a meal and I have to say I'm thrilled with my experience! Really couldn't praise this place highly enough. The staff were really friendly and attentive, my food came quickly, I didn't feel rushed despite being on my own. The...actual food was so, so delicious. I had the lamb kofte and they were perfectly seasoned and cooked, very juicy. The rice was delicious and even the salad was dressed and lovely. Portion size was spot on. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area, alone or with others. Thank you so much for a lovely experience and tasty food.More

Ordered a takeaway as a payday treat. I was salivating with every bite. We've had a few takeaways from here and they are always top quality. Planning to dine in soon to celebrate my friends divorce, can't wait.
