Went with another couple during the week for lunch. The restaurant was really empty. There is parking behind the restaurant. Love the salad, humas, and yogurt dressing. The pita bread was average. The dark meat chicken lunch was very good. Really like the cherry rice and jasmine rice. Pass on the grilled vegetable lunch with rice, not a lot of... More

We go there all the time with friends and family. It has good service. The food is very good. Not much of an ambience, if that's what you are looking for. But it's delicious Persian food.

We ate lunch there in June and ordered the chicken kabob for lunch. It was very good, the sides were very good and it included a drink for a very reasonable price. I went again with a friend for lunch a few weeks later and ordered the same thing. The chicken was extremely dry so I did not eat it.... More

We dine here several times a year and have never been let down. The hummus is really good along with the baba ganouj. I always go for the chicken kebab and love it!

My family has ordered food to go one many occasions and each time we have been very satisfied with the food. We have also dinner a few times at the Olive Branch. The service is friendly and cordial. The food is reasonably priced. The place is clean and well maintained. Ask for the kebab Barg or the chicken kebab.

went to get some good food & found the restaurant was closed for a private party. Luckily, the owner offered to go menu. We waited while our meal was prepared & sipped a glass of wine offered by the owner. My next visit will be for a proper dine in experience!

It's sort of an old world dining experience. White line,etc. All of the Kebab dishes are excellent. I particularly like the Lamb Shank dish. It's the best in our area. The young serving staff are attentive to all of your needs. You'll enjoy your visit.

This place has good food, the prices are very reasonable. As far as i can tell they are the lowest it seems they haven't raised the prices in a while. They have eat in, take out and delivery too. Parking is usually full in front but more can be found right around the corner in the rear.
