I have been to this place many times with friends and family, it's at a great price during the lunch hours during the week and the food is the best in town. Perfect for anyone who wants to try ethnic food. The owner and staff a very polite and love to talk.

Great grub! Looking for something different? Then call in to the Olive Tree. Where else would you get an authentic Mediterranean meal for less than a tenner? Try it - my guess is that you'll be back.

Nice family day out was finished off here. Mustafa is a fantastic host. He is very good with kids. The chicken korma & crab cakes were top. On payment kids were given a treat. 10/10.

The food in the Olive Tree is excellent, always tasty, something for everyone - even my picky 16 year old teenager, who loved the spicy chicken dish. The falafel are delicious, fish cakes very good as was everything else we had. Mustapha is a lovely man, and does great work for refugees as well as running this little gem, and... More
