Delicious Mediterranean Food. We stumbled into this place and was surprised to see it was always busy. The owner learned from chefs all over the world. That explains the mix of pizza and Mediterranean food. The food is delicious and the portions are very generous. The fresh cooked pita is excellent and very large. We always take extra pita home. It used to be a smaller place but since there were so many customers they expanded the restarting and added a bakery and breakfast cafe. The family works together and the customer service is excellent. It?s also great for catering special events. We love the chicken shawarma. The seasoning is great and a large portion. Enjoy this hidden gem
I have loved the food here for many years! Everything is very good and especially their Falafel is my favorite around here. I hadn't been there much during the pandemic maybe once during. It was towards the end and I realized they were now serving everything and go boxes and bagged. Okay remotely understandable for the pandemic. Back before the pandemic they used to serve everything are regular plates and with regular silverware if you were dining in. If I'm not mistaken they have changed ownership recently. But thank goodness the food has not changed it is still amazing! My one and only problem with them is the fact that they still serve everything as it would be to go and styrofoam in containers! Even if you are dining in. I don't understand why they haven't gone back to using real dishes and silverware. I feel this is a little bit of laziness on their part. A the dining experience is much better and of course and of course they did a little wear and tear on the environment. I probably would go back a lot more often but I don't just because of this.??
I was working in the area and decided to try this restaurant. I was really craving meat. I was left impressed. The lamb chops were great and juicy. The great amount of seasoning was great and it was and cooked perfectly. The bread was so soft and fluffy. Eating it with the rice and hummus was the perfect combination. Give this place a try if you?re craving Middle Eastern food.
I ordered the salmon kabob plate. The restaurant is tidy, clean, and service is good. However as you can see in my picture, the quantity of salmon is a bit startling, especially when the price is high. They quality of the salmon was great and very tender. The free bread servings were great. I overall had a good experience except the amount of salmon is not acceptable for the money I paid. I would have definitely given this place five stars had the amount of salmon been reasonable. I suggest you order the non-salmon items as they seem to give a bigger portion.
I ordered no.19 and every single thing about my meal was done perfectly. I cannot overstate that enough . From the little mixed salad that had four or five vegetables, to the yogurt sauce, to the olive oil and herbs for the amazing pillowy bread that they serve with the meal, to the rice, to the hummus, to both kinds of meat I had ordered, everything was perfect. The flavors, the ingredients, the proportions, the preparation. The people who made this food know very well what they are doing and I will definitely be back.
If I could give this a 10, I would. The only small drawback is dealing with consistency. For example, they have the most phenomenal bread but some of the times it?s cold when they serve it up. And if you order a drink like a beer, you should not have to wait until the meal is served. Also, restrooms should have soap. Aside from that, I absolutely love this place. Will go back again and again and again and again and again
Been coming to this place for years; even after we moved a couple of hours away, we try to make the trip at least once every two weeks. Every single dish I've had here has been delicious but their veggies kabobs, their pita bread, and their hummus are the best I have ever tasted, anywhere. I would give them 500 stars if I could.
Great Mediterranean food. It?s right along PCH and they are open for indoor and outdoor seatings now. We came to Huntington Beach with a friend to have a ride on his boat. When lunch came, he asked if would like to try this great Mediterranean food restaurant. We didn?t regret the decision. The food here are fantastic. We love all the things we ordered. Before the main dishes came out, the restaurant owner gave us two plates of pita breads freshly made. They were so food. I instantly devoured three pita breads with garlic butter dips. When my food came out, I smelt great fragrance of the food. My chicken kabob was cooked right and the meats were so tasty and tender. The shrimp skewers were also very delicious. My wife had a Kafka kebab. I tasted a piece, the marinated beef meat tasted so good. The whole dish was wonderful. We don?t have a chance to eat Mediterranean foods that much as we don?t have a lot of middle eastern food near where we live. This restaurant really have a good selections of the wonder Mediterranean food. My friend also told me that he got very comments from the people he?s been being here to eat.
If you love middle eastern and you live in Huntington Beach then Golden Olive is the place for you. Call (714) 840-8249 to learn more about us and our savory wings, which are made fresh everyday.
