Small, intimate restaurant with lovely decor and smiling, helpful staff. Great choice of food, 2 course deals for £12.95!! VISITED on a Tuesday night and this little gem, did not disappoint...the place was packed and also offers a takeaway service. Our food was beautifully cooked and generous in portions too. Highly recommended and on my faves list!!

I had a delightful lunch with a friend last week at this branch of the Olive Branch. Staff were excellent as was the food-2 courses for a set price. There was plenty of choice and the food was delicious and fresh. Fish, meat ,lamb and vegetarian- there was plent of choice for all. Will be back!

Lovely decor shame about the service... a major disconnect .Staff consist of a strange rabble of barely coherent mildly unfriendly and some permanently hungover juveniles with personality disorders. Food is nice and authentic but like with any restaurant if the service is substandard what's the point of eating there when you feel like an unwanted house guest the very essence... More

Ordered lamb chops - good portion size, marinated and cooked to perfection. The meat was so juicy and tender. The bulgur was full of flavours too. Staffs were very friendly and attentive. Great food with excellent service.

Visited on Saturday with friends, the decor is lovely with a nice bustling atmosphere. The home made humus is delicious as were the fajitas, big portions so be carful not to over order. Reasonably priced with friendly, attentive staff.

Good menu choice of mainly turkish cuisine at a good price. Restaurant quite small but atmosphere good despite dining early evening when only half full. Staff friendly, attentive and courtious. Wine list with a good choice and at reasonable prices. Will certainly go again.

Great food and atmosphere (greek style). Have been here three times and ordered the same course (Mediterranean steak) as it has never disappointed. Great selection of wine and beers. Staff really aim to please and are friendly and welcoming. Desserts selected from cabinet so can see in advance what you are getting. Overall a good experience and will likely return.

Not many places do good grills, but this one is an exception. Good ambience, good service and most important of all good food. I ordered the mixed grill main which came on time and was delicious.
