Olive Thyme Turkish Restaurant
THERE IS NO WHERE ELSE THAT COMBINES TURKISH CUSINE OF THIS QUALITY IN
Calling Brisbane home and appreciating all the opportunities the lucky country provided for these two passionate migrant chefs it was time they shared their passion and enthusiasm by bringing you the true taste of Anatolia.
Olive Thyme, a slight play on words is designed around the true Turkish Culture of bringing people together to enjoy amazing flavours matched with hand selected locally sourced and boutique wines.

There is just no words to simply define this restaurant! It definitely is a must see and do experience! I cannot even compare it to any of the other Turkish restaurants in Brisbane as the quality of service, food and ambience of Olive Thyme is second to none! It’s a beautiful fine dining experience however it also makes you feel so at home! The menu is extremely creative and the staff are incredible with their service! Definitely something Brisbane has needed for a very long time and safe to say they delivered above and beyond! You truely need to experience it for yourself to understand this review!!
OMG this place. You need to go here if you love great food and good service! I took my wife here for her Bday dinner, words can not describe the service or the well cooked dishes to perfection. This is a real review and you need to go check this revamped restaurant out ASAP! Dont stress about the back pocket to much the menu is reasonably priced and the setting is perfect for any occasion! Thankyou very much to the staff and in particular the manager and owner for making my wife’s meal memorable! Namaste & Much love
We were looking a special night and Olive Thyme delivered! As soon as we walked in we smelt the charcoal and food smells. The restaurant has great ambience and beautiful decor, loved the simplicity of the table decorations. They even have a kids spot so they are entertained. Now onto the food. Simply delicious and easily the best Turkish food in Brisbane. Loved the dips with lavash, yummy haloumi and ‘Soujouk’ sausage (which had a fig and sesame seed puree- just wow!). We shared a meat platter and finished with HANDROLLED hazelnut and walnut baklava and hazelnut gelato!!!! So so happy with the food and the service – all the staff were welcoming and helpful, and if you’re lucky you get to meet the lovely owners. You can see a lot of care and attention has been spent perfecting the Olive Thyme experience, putting a new spin on Turkish cuisine and culture.
Incredible! Absolutely delicious food and very friendly staff. Even though we arrived on a busy Saturday night they were more than accommodating and squeezed us in. A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience from start to finish. We will be back soon!
Make sure you go in a group and share, because you will want to try everything! I shared a wonderful lunch on Saturday in this beautiful restaurant; lovely, elegant surroundings, amazing food and excellent service. A wholly enjoyable dining experience!
We went with a small group of friends. Our food was delicious, service was fantastic and always with lovely smiles. One of our friends has major food intolerances and she was looked after so well and with consideration to her restrictive diet. We were very impressed with this as the hostess really went out of her way to make sure she did not have anything in her chosen dish that would not suit her. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a cosy atmosphere, friendly service and delicious food! Great night out.
What an experience. The food was of excellent quality and taste. Really large portions and delicious. The staff were incredible, attentive and polite. The owner is passionate about her culture and it really shows. The atmosphere was lively and vibrant.

The best Turkish real traditional food I’ve ever tasted in Brisbane! The Lahmacun is the bomb with the correct ingredients, first time I’ve ever came cross a restaurant doing the right way, and not copying like others.. Highly recommend to visit and try the best traditional food and deserts. The service is spot on and kindly people with lots of smiles 🙂
A perfect Turkish experience. The food was to die for. The staff and owners are so passionate about their menu & restaurant. We were made to feel right at home from the moment we entered. If you are looking for authentic Turkish in Brisbane then don’t go anywhere else, this is your spot! Thank you for having us! We will be back!!
