Olive Tree

512 S. Brookhurst St., Ste. 3 Anaheim, CA 92804 | Anaheim | 714-535-2878

Location Description:

Olive Tree is a Middle Eastern restaurant in Anaheim. This Little Gaza dive differentiates itself from its county competition by serving meals you won't find anywhere else--Jordanian mansaf, lamb spleens, and weekly specials pulled from across the Levant. Eat inside, and be prepared to endure a little humidity because of everyone drinking their free mint tea.
