Overpirced and doesn't taste good

I ordered the roast lamb dinner for takeout it cost $20.00. It came with a crappy greek salad which had only one olive (how cheap). the rice was not very flavorful and was the only large portion received. The potatoes were very tiny and were average tasting. The lamb just tasted like a piece of meat without good seasoning and had too much mushy fat in it. The piece was not very large either for the price. The sides of carrots and tatziki were not good either. Will never go back.

Full glass of wine

We ate upstairs, the parents raved about the lamb shoulder. The beef souvalaki was good, but have had better rice and food portions at other Greek restaurants, not good value for money. However, the wine was served in a nice FULL wine glass! Weelll worth the $5.99 :-)
The service was good, until the end. Waited a bit for the plates to be cleared and bill to arrive, but no biggie. Would probably give it another try...one day

Blah blah bland

No flavor, no spice, no nothing, and no repeat visit. Nice little place, with nice staff, and thats about it. We ordered the combo souvlaki and seafood pasta. No spice or taste to either dish and the pasta was mush. All the dishes had was a whole lotta garlic and thats about it. Basically we ate some food that made us full.

Good Food, Terrible service
By pokka of Burnaby (2 Reviews)

i went there to have dinner in last wednesday, i really want to try this restaurant since forever.
We're welcome in downstair by junior server/ waiter i think (because he didn't serve any food, just running up and down to bring the food to the server/ senior waiter and he bring dirty plates and stuffs.
However we ask him to ask about the menu and surprisingly he can explain the menu very well, he recommend the calamari dishes which is superb, kleftico lamb which is outstanding, lamb souvlaki which is also good and for my parent he recommend vegetable musaka, he also recommend tiramisu and bogatsa for dessert which is sold out.
He had better knowledge than the server obviously since the server could not describe the food really well and seems arrogant.
Other than the long time waiting for the food everything is good
Perhaps the junior server/waiter should get promoted and replace his senior.
obviously we'll come back again and bring some friends.
