Door opened for us as we came in was a nice touch. Small place but this meant staff could provide an attentive service. Food was lovely, and filling. Good value, 2 courses and a tea each was £32. Would recommend.

I went with a very large party of people, so we were rather squashed in. However the staff rose to the challenge and catered for all our demands very cheerfully. I chose vegetarian options - the portions were huge and I could hardly breathe by the time I'd finished! I enjoyed the meal and felt it was really good value.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. We've been few times and I don't know why I haven't reviewed it before! The staff are friendly, helpful but not overbearing. The food is an excellent range of food, good veggie and pesky options. You get loads, and it's really yummy. We return again and again. Good for big family meals or... More

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.
