A nice surprise

Location: on Edmonds, street view Parking: I had no problem finding free street parking. Reception: Fast and friendly Ambience: Much larger on the inside than the outside suggests and the inside really looks great!

Last week a friend of mine and I went to the "Balkan House", a small restaurant in South Burnaby. Sundays they offer a "East European" buffet. So we went there since I love all-you-can-eat. The restaurant was quite empty when we arrived. But it got more filled before we left, mostly because of two larger groups that had obviously some... More

It's more like home style cooking with hummungus portions and yet very-very reasonable prices.Huge portions of salad, potatos , meat grilled or breaded (schintzel) priced between 13-16 $. I haven't been there for a good while but since Vido the owner died last year I wanted to see what happened with the place. His family did a great job keeping... More

This restaurant features an excellent buffet on Sundays. Interesting assortment of a few vegetables (potatoes and sauerkraut) and meat: rolled pork roast, schnitzel, chicken, cevapcici. Also sauces, salads and desserts. All traditional' and filling but expertly prepared - refined taste. The dessert was simple but satisfying. All washed down with beer, wine and plum eau de vie. All extremely filling... More

If you know eastern European cuisine and especially the balkanic one or more specifically the one that is cooked along the middle Danube basin, this is the place to go. The restaurant is not pretentious but the food is executed in its original form. The location is not so good (had a better one 10 years ago), but otherwise Balkan... More

These folks cook lovely food, not just great European style grilled meats but all the sides and veggies are good too. The building is plain and the block looks funky and has litter etc. Parking in the back of the building. That's all very unappealing but once you are inside it is a charming place to dine. Waiters give "old... More

I had a good experience here at the Balkan. I love the taste and the meal presentation. Smells nice and very filling. The dish comes with salad and bread. My Croatian friend recommends me to try and I was very happy. The only thing was the rice which I think was still raw. The sausages and the different kinds of... More

The food here is great but the location is not the best. On a busy industrial looking street so the patio is pretty useless even with the fence. If you are just looking for a great piece of meat or Serbian BBQ and don't care about the atmosphere or decor then go here.

Great food! Great price! I had a wonderful experience. I had no idea they would bring me so much food. When you go in make sure you have enough room for a lot of great food, or be sure you will have food for the next meal as well.

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is nice and the food is excellent. The portions are large and the prices are moderate. This family-run restaurant doesn't usually require reservations, but it can't hurt. The food IS a taste of Serbia/Croatia. There is parking in the rear, and plenty of on-street parking. You will not... More
