I had the Kalamari, Chicken Keftethes and Garlic Prawns. At first I thought I had lost my ability to taste food. Turns out its the food. The Tsatizki had taste, granted not a very good one. The food was cooked well enough just tasteless. I was amazed that food could be so bland.

Food was ok, like everyone wrote, over priced for the food you get. Portions did get smaller. Im guessing its due to the upgraded car of the owner.. Everyone knows the place for the owner having a Ferrari. Not the food. 18$ for a roast lamb.. Bit high. I guess they are right, best greek in burnaby.. If you only... More

I came here, against my sisters advise. She said it was just OK, bit I needed to kill an hour, and the website is so basic, I assumed it would be a quick salad and spinach pie, diner style. I was so shocked to see how cute, quaint, and decorative it was inside. Tons of attention to detail. Spotless, warm,... More

I've been frequenting this restaurant for at least 10 years. The food and service have been consistently good and the décor is very authentic and romantic, which was reason enough for me to ignore the incredible rudeness of the owner. I saw him yelling at his staff in a couple of occasions, and twice grunting and slamming the window shutters... More

I just came from the restaurant and had a good meal. I had the vegetarian plate of spanokapita, dolmades, hummus, delicious green beans, potatoes. I thought it was great. My companions had lamb souvlaki and were happy. The restaurant was not busy and the waitress was pleasant. I have always liked the look of the restaurant and it was nice... More

The other day, we were hungry and did not know what to eat, so we remembered Vassilis, a restaurant we have seen many times, therefore we decided to give it a shot. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner (we assume) he guided us to a table in an area the majority of the diners were sitting (by... More

This restaurant may be good for you if you don't appear to be an immigrant to the owner's judgement. Upon arrival, if you appear to be an immigrant to the owner, your party will be seated in a designated area which is away from the view of the entrance. He categorizes immigrants as non-white or speaks English with an accent.... More
