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..!!

A great place to eat

I went there this evening. The service was great and the food well prepared. I noticed that the manager/owner as usual, seemed to be everywhere. He was mixing drinks in the bar, taking reservations on the phone, contacting all of his customers to make sure they were pleased. The staff is obviously... read more

These guys rock! I use them primarily for take out business lunches for clients and the food is always great and always packed well. Customer service is great. I can trust these guys with any client demand and the result is perfection.

A friend told us this was the best restaurant by far in Abbotsford. Thought we would try it for dinner. No wait on a table for two. Lots of people inside. Very good waitress who was knowledgable, nice and not pushy. We had the appetizer platter. Have a cardiologist permission prior to eating here. SALTY! That said, the Calimari was... More

We have visited Greek Islands on S Fraser Way in Abbotsford a number of times, and have never had a meal that was less than excellent. 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
