The portion sizes were quite large, and the food was good. I’m not sure we’d recommend that you seek this place out if you only have one night in Budapest, but if you’re craving some mediterranean cuisine then it’s a good option in Budapest.

Cheap decent hummus and other bits and pieces. The both of us shared chicken hummus and a mixed platter with a pint of lemonade each for £15 in total. Not too bad. Tasty and quiet little place. Would return

Dear Customer! First about the hummus, So far nobody has complained about our hummus - especially too much tahina. Good hummus is exactly what it is -- one having a decent proportion of tahini - which is not cheap, and it shows that a restaurant...More

We found this on tripadvisor and walked over for lunch. We were not disappointed. Lots of tasty hummus flavours. We had the falafel and chicken shawarma hummus. Comes with plenty of pitta bread to dip in. Reasonably priced. Would recommend as a good quick lunch...More

I love humous and falafal/shwarma/etc. So was excited to visit the Olive Tree. The food was ok, the service was ok, just nothing special. A shame as I'd expected more.More

Dear Customer! We are little confused about the comment, as we dont serve anything with the liver. So, we can only assume that it was not our restaurant.
