My wife and I eat Middle Eastern/Mediterranean quite a bit, especially when traveling, since it provides some safe vegetarian choices for her. That being said, this may have been the best Middle Eastern meal we've ever had (including on our trip to the Middle East). I will definitively say that the vegetarian grape leaves were the best. The pie sampler (meat, feta, spinach) was also excellent, and my kebabs (chicken, lamb, kafta) were amazing. Her falafel was quite good, as was the hummus and rice we had on the side. Everything was seasoned to perfection. If I had to find something to nitpick about, it would be that half the dinner entrees were kebabs and I wouldn't have minded a little more variety on the menu. However, there are plenty of appetizers to make a meal from if you're so inclined.
Olive Branch has a home-style atmosphere and feels like a mom and pop restaurant (which it is). The service from the owner was very attentive and friendly, and the prices were more than reasonable. I don't know when we'll be back in Bethlehem, but I imagine a trip to the Olive Branch will be included.
