Wonderful service and the food was very authentic and a great place to have an out door patio date night. The street is a little busy by the fire station

Very nice environment and excellent food. The salmon and the chicken kabobs were very good and the servings are plentiful. Good place for an evening with friends or for a private dinner.

My wife and I have eaten here many times. The food and service is always good. Tatiana loves the squash plate with tabbouleh salad. She gets a double serving of this salad, instead of another side item. I love getting Fank's Philly or the Pita Burger. Both are very good and the portion sizes are good too. This cafe has... More

You will not leave from this place hungry as the portions are large. We could have shared some of our meals. We ordered two appetizers which was to much. The grape leaves were not the best I have had recently and had meat in them which was a surprise to us. The service was great. Each meal was served with... More

I visit Birmingham a few times per year and always stop at The Olive Branch. I always prefer to support the independent local restaurant over the many chains at the summit, and there are many healthy options here, but i go for the flavor. The falafel is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, with a hint of... More

Great food and low key atmosphere! Try the mint tea and gyro deluxe. Also, the employees are very nice and hospitable.
