When a restaurant already appears in the ten best restaurants in Anaheim listing on Trip Advisor and on Culture Trip ( not to mention lauded by both local and national press and Saveur magazine) you wonder if they really need another review. But things can change over time so I thought perhaps to leave a review anyway. Firstly be glad... More

My friend and I were going to Disney land and we found this restaurant on a website that had top restaurants in Anaheim!!! I feel like that is an understatement.

This place is a must visit. It is absolutely amazing. First of all there's plenty of parking. So no need to worry about trying to find a parking spot for your car. The restaurant is simple from the inside but still nice and comfortable. They have amazing daily dishes. They are generous with their portions. And the quality of the... More

When you are a foodie, there comes a moment in your life when a whole cuisine is redefined in your mind. You know, like when you eat at Olive Garden and Johnny Carino's your whole life, and you think you know what Italian food is, and then you eat at one of those rare 'proper' Italian restaurant. At that moment,... More

It is very nice place with good food. Good place to try Arabic food. Prices are not very high. I found it in lonely planet and maybe isn't the best food from Middle East I have ever eaten but still very good!!

A great meal! The service was excellent. Given good advise by our waiter. Had planned to order the kebab but took his suggestion and loved the lamb shank over rice, the daily special. Started with a appetizer sampler with falafel, hummus, grape leaves, eggplant, tabouli and yogurt dip. Only shortcoming is being handed a cold bag of bread. Miss the... More

I'm of Lebanese heritage & was raised on Arabic food. Olive Tree is as authentic as it gets & served with lots of flavor & in a very generous portion. I love taking friends here to have them try Arabic food as its meant to be made. It's not a fancy place - very mom & pop - there is... More

This is my second review on this place. The first time I gave them five dots, but this visit (my third) and my second were not very impressive. I thought last time it was what I had ordered, but two times in a row is something to worry about. I had their whole fish on rice. Everything was spiced very... More
