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..!!

My girlfriends and I came here in December to share one of our birthdays, which are always made special here at the Greek Islands by the staff! Even including a free desert to share! Food is always amazing and is hands down the best Greek food in town! If not, best in BC!!!! Always busy, so make sure you make... More

Very disappointed......visited Greek Isles restaraunt with my family this evening. Chicken souvlaki was dry and worse found a hair under my souvlaki. When brought to their attention they offered to bring me a new meal but let's face it at this point the complete dining experience has been compromised with me waiting for a new meal (which was only a...

This is an excellent place if you want excellent food, large portion and excellent price. I would recommend the Kalamari appie and the Schnitzel Champignon, they are very tasty. The staff are there to serve you with a smile.

Went there for a goodbye party for a staff member and was sadly disappointed I had hair in my food and eggshells in my spanakopita. The sad thing was is they didn't even do anything about it. No discount on my meal or anything. Never again totally grossed me out.

This is my husband's and I's Friday night restaurant. The service is excellent with warm receptions from Chris or Niko. The roast lamb is consistently exceptional and their Caesar salad is my husband's favourite. The 3 course meal is great value. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Always absolutely delicious food! Comes out quickly and is top quality. Great atmosphere, and the staff is so polite and friendly. The best Creme Brulee.. possibly ever ! My husband and I always order the Date Night combination and the price is unbeatable. We usually make a reservation, as they get quite busy a lot of nights. Can't wait for... More

First thing I see is a specials menu on top of the regular menu. It describes "two can dine for $25.99" then they have the next section on the specials menu of a shared meal for $46. And finally on the third section are drink specials. Awesome, so we order drinks from the bottom of the menu and the $25... More

We stopped for some Greek food on Sunday night around 7:30 and the place was nearly packed. For a traveler, you know you’ve made the right choice when the place is so busy on a typically quiet night. We were seated almost immediately to a cozy table for 2 and proceeded to celebrate a birthday dinner. From service to food,... More
