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..!!

Went out as a group of eight to this restaurant. I am a Greek islands fan, and usually go to the one on Langdon which is very good also, however this was my first tip to the South Fraser Way Location. I like the layout and the ambience of this sister restaurant better than the the other one. Our table... More

If you are looking for excellent Greek food and service in the Fraser Valley, look no further. Chris and his staff always strive to ensure you have a pleasant dining experience. We have been going here for quite a few years and have yet to be disappointed. With main entrees, you always get a choice of salad and homemade soup.... More

We went on the recommendation of friends. Make a reservation for weekend nights, it is full. The full menu is broad. If you don't fancy Greek, there is most regular fare. As I have come to learn, the Greeks are not skimpy on their portions. Every meal came with soup, salad, vegetables, potatoes and rice on a large platter, with... More

This is one of those go-to restaurants where you know you are guaranteed to get amazing food at a reasonable price with friendly service. We love going to Greek islands for a special occasion or just because. The food is always delicious (we recommend the souvlaki) and the staff are friendly and welcoming. One of the best restaurants in Abbotsford... More

We are visiting from out of town and decide on Greek! Well we were more than thrilled with the food and especially the service. One of the best restaurant experiences we have had in a long time. We will be back!

My husband and I have enjoyed going to this restaurant for years, since it opened up. We have consistently had good meals and service. The only negative is that whereas the restaurant was a good value originally, over the years, and particularly in the past few months, the prices have crept up to the point where I would no longer...

We have been going to these 2 Abbotsford restaurants since they opened and have always been very satisfied - when unexpected guests arrived, we always went to a Greek Islands in Abbotsford. Our last two experiences (one in each restaurant) have been dismal failures. Service in the South Fraser Way location was pretty good but the food was horrible and... More

Very good food with pleasant service and dining atmosphere. Nice decor. We had the Friday night special for two with a shared appertizer and dessert, and individual entree, served with a basket of pita, a bowl of soup each and a plate of salad each. All for $45!! Good value for money! We had deep fried calamari, which was nicely... More
