The Christmas Season Lunchtime Menu as advertised on the website was not on the tables on the day of our visit. Instead, the Christmas Menus on the tables were dated 2015! Service was very slow - the total time taken for 3 courses and coffee was over 2 and a half hours. There were no apologies or information about the... More

Can't fault the deliveroo service although the food was barely warm. Ordered the tzaziki with pitta bread. The pitta bread was supposed to be warm, it wasn't. It was also stale and crispy. Ordered the pastries filled with cheese, but they were soggy and soft. Lavanta in West Park does much tastier and crispier pastries. Ordered the saganaki which was... More

Me and a couple of friends visited the Olive Tree and we were taking a back on how good the food and service is. The staff go above and beyond customer service and nothing is a bother, the food is delicious. We will definitely will be back very soon

Having moved to Leeds I was looking forward to trying a Greek/Turkish restaurant as having been to many in the past at home and abroad its always represented good food and great portions. Sadly the local Olive Tree lived up to none of my expectations. First impressions when going in was how dated the restaurant decor looks, with Euro pop... More

I came here with my boyfriend and we had a lovely meal. It seemed more authentic than some of the Greek restaurants I visited in Crete with its music and atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Definitely recommend this for anyone who wants a nice relaxing evening with tasty food

Came here for a meal with my grandparents and had a lovely evening. The food was delicious, and the staff were great - efficient service and the waitresses were very friendly and helpful. Traditional music added to the atmosphere, and I will 100% be dining here again. Thank you very much!

I visited here last week with my family for the first time & we loved every minute. The waitresses were very bright and welcoming when we arrived and they explained all the deals they had available which we found very helpful of them as we didn't know about these. The drinks arrived instantly after the order was taken & the... More

After visiting this restaurant before, and having a positive experience, we decided to go on Tuesday night. Arrived to a very cold welcome like we weren’t wanted at all. Sat on a dirty table which was cleaned as we were sitting despite there been plenty of empty tables around? We were given 2 menu’s, each which differed in price? We... More
