Came here with my parents on a Saturday night. We requested to sit upstairs as our previous visit the restaurant was full and were placed on the ground floor. The upstairs is lovely and the service mirrors this. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and do not rush you at all, unlike many other Indians, albeit it wasn't too... More

We went for a revisit on a Friday night and we're lucky to get a table as had not booked. Everything was first rate and the paneer main was the best I have had outside India. Service was attentive and helpful advice given when needed. There was a good mix of people and a pleasant atmosphere. Must revisit sooner rather... More

I've been going to the Olive Limes for a over 5 years now and unfortunately the past 3 times I've been the standards have really dropped. Initially thinking it was just bad day I gave them a couple more chances. However, it's just the same thing, the food has been bland, almost as though each curry tastes the same. Not... More

Cannot rate this restaurant highly enough. The food was so delicious and tasted so fresh. The staff were very attentive and nothing was any trouble. Thank you for a great meal - we will definitely be back.

Once a week, usually on a Friday, for many years we have been purchased takeaways from the OL. Last Friday was hopefully just a bad day, maybe the head chef was taken ill or something because both our meals were truly awful, had to bin them both. Hoping that things return to normal quickly although we have our doubts ?

When I first moved to Tring I loved this place. To have a high quality Indian restaurant with a special dining room on the high street was just great. I've now been living in Tring for almost six years and eaten at olive limes on a number of occasions and the standard of food has never slipped. But - is... More

Six of us met here on a quiet Monday night and all of us were really pleased with the dish we ordered. I had tandoori king prawns and they were a) plentiful and b) perfectly cooked. Presentation is exceptional for an Indian restaurant and the service was prompt and friendly (and they were discreet enough to leave us to it... More

This is our 3rd visit to Olive Limes, each time we've been disappointed. The restaurant is nice, service is good but the curry (chicken) I've had each time is bland. Almost tastes like the the chicken has been cooked separately to the curry. We want to like it, but won't go again.

We have eaten at olive limes maybe 30 times over the past 5 years and have never received anything other than exceptionally good food and excellent service. If you want to try unusual but traditional Indian dishes then this place is definitely worth visiting. It is more expensive than other Indian restaurants in this area but it is also far... More
