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..!!

We are visiting from out of town and decide on Greek! Well we were more than thrilled with the food and especially the service. One of the best restaurant experiences we have had in a long time. We will be back!

“Good restaurant”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

My husband and I have enjoyed going to this restaurant for years, since it opened up. We have consistently had good meals and service. The only negative is that whereas the restaurant was a good value originally, over the years, and particularly in the past few months, the prices have crept up to the point where I would no longer say it is exceptional value. The food and service however are still good and we still go, just not as often.

“Slipping”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We have been going to these 2 Abbotsford restaurants since they opened and have always been very satisfied - when unexpected guests arrived, we always went to a Greek Islands in Abbotsford. Our last two experiences (one in each restaurant) have been dismal failures. Service in the South Fraser Way location was pretty good but the food was horrible and definitely not the quality we had come to expect. The beef dish was rewarmed and had that distinctive flavor. The pasta tasted old and stale. At the Langdon Avenue location we were greeted by a most aggressive (bordering on obnoxious) pushy person who became our waitress for the night. The food, once again was stale and flavorless and the waitress was so bad I came very close to not leaving a tip. I don't know what's happened and am not a chef but it appears to me that they are pre cooking for efficiency and sacrificing quality and value.

“So good.”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

We were staying in a nearby hotel and this was close. What a wonderful place to eat. The place was very busy and the service was exceptional. There were very well staffed and everyone was really friendly. Great service. We ordered one of the specials and it included both soup and salad. The food was so good and there was so much of it. Wish we lived closer, so we could eat here more often. Very nice family restaurant.
