Having just got back home from what was suppost to be a nice meal out with family I felt I had to post a review. Never posted before on anything but this was so bad had to.so over priced and fresh really? Houmous was bland no flavor no garlic no lemon seemed shop bought to be honest . chicken Keebab at 12pound was raw. Lamb keebab was maostly grisly. Orderd two cokes twice that never came asked for ketchup for little one never came. Then asked y are kebabs never came with pitter wen on menu says served with warm pitta and salad asked waitor he said u mush of eaten it lol then said il get u it on the house lol but then never returned watched him leave have a fag then got in his car and drove of asked different waiter for all of the above but again iver forgot or choose to ignore and there was only us a table of 8 and two other tables of 4 not exactly busy. 6 out of us 8 complained 160 for 6 tiny little keebabs on a stick
two plates of chips and few cokes and Houmous!

Food wasn't particularly good. VERY expensive for what is was. We ordered some pitta bread and a dip to start and both had chicken and rice for mains, bottle of water to share and one soft drink. Bill came to around £45. Waiter had an attitude!They seemed to look after their regular customers and didn't bother with the ones they didn't know. Would not go back!!

No taste in the food, bad quality, had to send things back. Badly cooked prawns, (burnt). And very expensive. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Blue Olive never fails to deliver on flavour, authenticity, atmosphere, I could go on. We always enjoy
our visits. We are are always given quite personal attention even even the place is heaving. I know we all have different tastes but it's hard to see where some of the criticism of some previous reviews comes from. If you want fast clinical service and food you need to go to MacDonalds. We love it and will be back.
