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..!!

Greek Islands Restaurant

Awesome food and ambiance. Amazing service. If you go for the early bird dinner it is a lot less expensive. Between 4pm- to 6pm. Great Greek food a family owned buisness around for decades.

I'm a food lover and can appreciate almost any restaurant. The food here is comfort, pre-made food at best, but it has its place and I'd eat it again. The prices are affordable for anyone and the portions are big. Our server was wonderful and would be about the only reason why I'd go back. The decor is dated, the... More

The food here is just amazing. Always fresh, always well done, and the service is top notch. My favorite dish is the Thallosopita, (sp?) which is a ménage of seafood in phyllo pastry. There are two locations in Abbotsford, owned and ran by brothers. They care very much about their restaurants, their patrons, and the staff. This shows in the... More

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. Yes, it is a little pricey, but boy, do they make it worth your while!! Food is excellent every time, no exceptions. The music is authentic, the staff are amazing, and the food is delicious and generous portions. This is my go-to place. If you don't leave happy, then you are the problem.
