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..!!

Terrific location for a party

Recently spend an evening here with a group celebrating two birthdays. We all raved about the lamb and great service. There was special accommodations made that made the evening a success.

Pride in the food served is evident, as is the talent of the chefs. The service is great, and the manager is always there and checks to make sure everyone is happy. Never a... More

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
