I was given a choice to select a place to go to for a goodbye mini-party. I chose Balkan House because I've never been and know Eastern European cuisine. All in all, the place is nice, even though it could use some updating (at least to the washrooms). If you're vegetarian, you'll be told "wrong restaurant". There's pretty much no... More

Waiter was not very pleasant (did his job at a minimum). Did not have to wait too long for dinner which was nice, BUT, not impressed! I don't need to go into specifics, but my advice is to take your money elsewhere and go get good 'quality' food. This location New Westminster, BC

After reading some good reviews we thought we'll try it. It's definitely for the meat lovers. We all had the buffet. A good variety of meat dishes. The pork loin and the sausage were very good. It wasn't that busy when we're there but not much service from our waiter. Anyways, it was still a good night out. We would... More

I have been a customer of this restaurant from time to time. They are heavy on the meat dishes; If you're a vegetarian I would suggest giving this place a pass. They offer a variety of stews, meats, and platters. Their meat platters are enormous, and their platter for two (includes rice and salad); two adult men with hearty appetites... More

We are always looking for good food and good atmosphere. We found both at Balkan House. We went on a Sunday. We were pleasantly surprised that not only do they have regular entrees but a great looking buffet. Some chose soups (not included in buffet but well worth it) in addition to the buffet. Both were great- veal or tripe.... More

I have been there a couple of times and the food has been great. I love the home sausages. This time we had the meat platter for 2. They started us off with a great salad very fresh. The home made bread was warm and yummy. Then the meat platter wow was huge! Digging under all that meat was another... More

Balkan House Restaurant Tucked away on Edmonds Street, just off Canada Way in Burnaby, is a little gem of a restaurant, probably most people would never think of trying. That’s not really a problem though as they have a very loyal and devoted crowd of regulars. Drop in most any night and you are likely to hear some Serbian being... More

This is a place I have seen a hundred times and never stopped at; one night my wife and I were looking for something different to eat and decided to give it a shot. Well... The place is big, well lit (we love dimmed lights) not too bright not too dark, we went on a Saturday night around 7.30pm and... More

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

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! Hardwood floors, hardwood ceilings and you'd be hard pressed to find a speck of dirt anywhere! Immaculate! Food: An interesting menu containing a variety of meat... More
