Description: Two twin brothers George and Gus Sahamis left Greece in 1975 and traveled to Canada to pursue their dreams when they were young men in their late teens. They brought with them a passion for quality and service that started out as selling souvlakis straight off the spit to the local community and tourists in their hometown of Sparta, Greece, this became the benchmark of their success as they opened The Greek Islands Restaurants throughout the Fraser Valley 21 years later in 1996. It was this same dedication to quality & service that George and Gus passed down to, their sons and nephews in 2003.Today, the privately-owned Greek Islands Restaurants is based in Abbotsford and Chilliwack BC, is operated by George and Gus Sahamis with their sons, nephews and son in law, Yianni #1, Niko, Christo, Yianni #3, and Yianni #4 with two locations in Abbotsford and one in Chilliwack.Greek Islands Restaurants are known for outstanding food, service and atmosphere where people go to be treated like family, to be entertained, and to truly feel like your on vacation in Greece.Greek Islands Restaurants would like to extend a warm “Thank you” to all of our guests for their continued support and patronage..!!

We recently moved back to BC and I'm not kidding when I say that one of the things I was most excited about was being able to come back to this restaurant. 5 years in Ontario and I couldn't find anything to even closely compare. They have the best salad dressing ever, and every meal I've ever tried has been... More

I have been here a few times with a customer in the area and the food is always good! The price is good and the portions are large but not huge (which is good in my mind). I always leave feeling full and satisfied. The staff has always been welcoming and very warm.

There are Greek restaurants in the Lower Mainland way better than this place. The service is very good but the food is average. They serve schnitzels and stirfry (thai, curry, etc.), so it's not an authentic Greek place. It may be one of the reasons the Greek plates are just average. Greek Islands is not bad but I wish we...

what a pleasant surprise. Possible the best Greek food I've had here in the lower mainland. The restaurant was very busy with a number of large groups but the level of service, the attentiveness from the host to the server to the buspersons was not affected. They were all very professional, relaxed and gave top notch service. The food came... More

Although the food was very tasty, for the price our Take Out order was minuscule. Definitely not ordering from here again.

I have gone to the Greek Islands Restaurant frequently over the past 12 years - I can always count on a delicious meal. I love the Greek ribs and the roast lamb - never tasted better. It is very popular so make reservations especially for Fridays and Saturdays. The staff is efficient and friendly and the owner nearly always comes... More
