Great little restaurant serving authentic Turkish food. I'm vegetarian so really happy with the wide selection. Total bill for two courses and a bottle of wine £40 job done, will definitely be back!!

This was the third visit here and like the previous two visits the food was flawless. The menu is a bit different to most in north Leeds which helps. When visiting you need to realise that it's not the biggest place so can be a bit cramped and service is friendly but can on occasions be a bit slow. For... More

Visited The Olive Branch in Dec 2016 for an evening meal. It was very busy and we had to wait approx. 30 min for a table, but it was worth the wait. The food was of good quality and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed my meal and based on my travel to the Turkey and... More

My son and girlfriend took me for lunch today. From the first foot in the door we were greeted by friendly helpful staff. Our food was served quickly and cooked very well. We were presented with a platter of complimentary deserts following our mains. We had such a lovely time. Excellent restaurant, relaxed and a joy to visit.

Another great visit but with the family, we were a little concerned what the grandchildren would eat, but not a problem with a little help from the waitress we made our selections. All the food was well cooked very tasty and we all enjoyed the evening

Had the 2 course lunch £10 deal which was any 2 courses of a smaller size. Very good portions, more than enough for lunch. Food is always delicious and fresh. The staff are very helpful. Outstanding as usual, just wish I lived nearer.

Been here few times, never reviewed before. Mix of Turkish/Greek food. I love it as the way of cooking is very similar to my home country. Olive oil, garlic, fresh vegs. Also love it as their mezes and all dishes can be shared, letting you try all sorts of food!

The Mezi was very refreshing, and quite filling and as none pork eater, was nice to have something where there was no pork on the menu.The food is Turkish origins but really well prepared and full of flavour. Its a change from... More

We had a lovely family dinner and fortunately we were not in a hurry because the only thing not perfect was the waiting time - the rest was great
