Description: 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..!!

“Greek Islands, Abbotsford, BC (Return visit)”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Meet some long time friends at this location and had a wonderful visit and meal. The owner and staff greets you as you enter, and possibly recalling your last visit. They are all so very nice and attentive with their service throughout the entire evening. Amoung the four of us we had Chicken Souvlaki; Beef Souvlaki; Steak & Prawns and Schnitzel...and we all thoroughly enjoy the meal. Was a great place to meet and se eour old friends. Unfortunately, there was a large group seated nearby and some of the 'ladies' became quite loud as they consumed wine...started to sound like a bar....But that's ok, they can have a good time also. So all in all, was another great meal in a restaurant that we have been to and will return to again. And of course, lots of food for a very reasonable price.

We came here for lunch and were impressed by the pleasant & speedy service and the food. They serve some items we haven't had before and were very pleased with the choices we made. I'm come here again.

“AMAZING”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

The service is amazing and I have never had a bad meal there!! Prices are completely fair. The majority of the meals you get homemade soup, salad, and then your meal. I always have left overs.

Really good food, lots of it; reasonably priced. Very good service. We come here often, because it's close to home. Love the personal touch of the owners.

“Greek Islands Restaurant Chilliwack BC.”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I. Think the Greek Islands Restaurant in Chilliwack is equally as good, I have eaten at both and would have a hard time choosing between them. Keep up the good work.
