I work at the MNR across from the Favourite Greek and have lunch there two or three times a week. I go for the lunch special or just greek fries, the fries are delicious , more then just feta as described by the last review??? When I have a short lunch I call ahead and they always get me out...

Well I was not impressed with the food or the service. Having been to Greece many times and loving Greek food, I was so looking forward to a real treat.... very, very disappointing. Lacked flavor. The Greek fries were fries with feta cheese sprinkled over them. The Baklava dessert, which I absolutely love and could hardly wait for the dessert,... More

We had the booth by the front window for our lunch meeting of 5 people. Perfectly quiet and private for us. I had the chicken skewer with rice and Greek salad. Very tasty meal! I loved all of it. I tried someone else's potatoes and they were so good I regretted not ordering some! Everyone enjoyed their food and the... More

My family and I went to The Favourite Greek for my graduation dinner. The food was perfection, the service was great we were given complimentary red pepper dip (recommended) and the owner was a sweetheart making everything was perfect. I would recommend to anyone. Something on the menu for everybody!

This place is so good. They are quick bringing out the food, the food is delicious and not at all expensive. Try the Greek French fries!

If you've been to the Toronto staple greek restaurants the Astoria you know what I mean. It's hard, too hard, to find a greek restaurant that works well with a North American palate. By that I mean our family doesn't like seafood and lots of soft strong cheeses; we prefer crispy fries and flame broiled souvlaki. Of the four greek... More

We have done take out twice at this Greek restaurant and have been happy with it both times. The food was good. When picking up the food I did notice the restaurant decor was very dated, so I wouldn't ever consider dining in the restaurant. The food we had was standard Greek; nothing really set this place apart from other... More

Stopped in for lunch and we were surprized to find a really comfortable atmosphere. The service is outstanding and the prices economical. Jill, our server was very informative and helpful. WE enjoyed our lunch.

Thought we would try the dinner and a movie deal at the favourite greek. The food was tasty and fresh but the best part was the price. For under $20 we had a great dinner and a night at the movies. We will be back for sure!!!

I have always enjoyed the food at this restauarant so when I needed a lunch catered I asked them if they could do it for us. We received lots of food and it was as just like they serve at the restaurant. We will use them again A+.
