Enjoying Greek Food for Years Here

A previous review complained about the steak... this is a GREEK restaurant, not a dead cow palace. Go figure. Souvlaki! That is where it's at. And very, very good lamb souvlaki at that. Don't hesitate and is worth the drive. Winning local awards for years.

For years we used to visit this restaurant often, for a casual dinner or for celebrating special days, every time ordering the same dishes. Last time when we ordered a take-out the meat in one of the dishes was bad. It was obvious that it was old and warmed-over, and smelled bad also. Naturally, I went back to the restaurant... More

We have been going to this restaurant for over 25 years but no more. Going back a few years you would have to line up out the door to get in, but those days are long gone. There are many reasons for this: rising prices, deteriorating food, inhospitable owner and one really annoying server. I would say this restaurant is... More

This facility has a nice Greek Restaurant environment - food was good but limited options to their satisfaction in that no offer of just a plain garden salad and if you order steak "it comes as it comes" so it is good if you like it medium.... Service was okay - but minimal follow-up on asking if things are okay... More

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
