I had lunch there. I don't usually love tzatiki but I had to put something on my food to give it flavour. Also ended up asking for lemon on the side for my rice and potatoes. Very bland, huge portion for lunch but what was the point if it wasn't authentic? Many better places in Durham to get Greek. Skip... More

Service was good, food too salty and my mix vegetables were the frozen kind. Not authentic, to me authentic means fresh! Would rather have traveled downtown...won't eat here again!

Went there last week on a rainy day for lunch with a friend of mine. It was not very busy. We had a quiet table over by the window. There was a door beside us which made our seat a bit chilly and noisy from the traffic. We closed the door but the waitress opened it again. The tables were... More

this is now a franchise Milos Greek. previous reviews probably refer to the old family run bus. we were the only customers at 9pm (this should have been a red flag) service is awful, they just loiter around and ignore the customer even though there is no other customer and there is nothing to do. we had to wait 20min...

I grew up on Greek food, and my husband adores it. I don't believe the food here is as fresh as some of the more upscale restaurants on the Danforth are, but there are positive qualities in this restaurant. The grilled calamari is firm, tasty and not rubbery. The Gyro is not as salty as any other Greek restaurant I've... More

From someone that has grown up on the Danforth and me being Greek I think I should know Greek food. I went there yesterday with my girlfriend and I ordered the typical Pork souvlaki dinner and she had the Calamari dinner. In one work I would describe the food as "EXCELLANT” This food is comparable to the best Greek restaurants... More

If you are looking for a Greek restaurant in Pickering...look no further! Milos Greek restaurant (Previously, The Friendly Greek) has the best Greek food in Durham Region! My wife had the Large Greek souvlaki dinner and I had the large Gyro's dinner. Your dinner comes with a Greek salad and all you can eat garlic and pita bread. You dip... More

There is something about this place that spoils it slightly. The decor looks nice but the place is like an echo chamber. Noise from everything in the restaurant seems to vibrate 'til the noise becomes annoying. The food is plenty for almost anyone but the wait between the starter salad and entree was pitifully long. So much so that our... More

This restaurant is since a while known under a different name Milos (same people are working there) We would consider ourselves regulars guests and we always enjoy the nice atmosphere, although I do find the tables may be a bit too close to each other and the music is a tad too loud, but that depends on how many people...
