This location of Greek Taverna is located on Brunette Avenue just off of Lougheed Highway. My Greek Taverna serves authentic home style Greek cuisine for dine in or take out.
I took few of my friends there for lunch and supper, after that everyone will take their friends to their again.

you can park car south side (down below), please go there early as one reviewer said, line up all the time especially weekend
I had the calamari dinner. The portions were big, which I like. However, the greek salad SUCKED - the cheese in it wasn't even CHEESE, it had no flavour, I make better Greek salad at home, and better greek-lemon roasted potatoes. I won't be back, even though I would describe the meal, other then the greek salad, as descent. It was like they got lazy in preparing the meal, and don't think they have to try so hard anymore. Although I must add I did like the the dessert, the "ek mek."
We stopped by for dinner last night, waited in the line for a while but the hostess was very helpfull and it was well worth it. Service was surprisingly fast considering how full the restaurant was, food was absolutely great, I had the most tender and tastefull roast lamb ever and my friend couldn't stop talking about the steak he had. Our server was moving like a snake and threw in couple of jokes too. Overall everyone was nice, food was great it was a little loud but I guess that's a "usual" friday night at My Greek, we will be comming back for sure.
I picked My Greek Taverna based on the reviews I read here. While I must agree with the majority that the portions, prices and service I part ways with the other reviews on the food itself.
Yes, the portions are generous (but I can't recall offhand any Greek restaurant I've eaten at that didn't have good portions). I was pleased with the quick friendly service (but again, I've never had bad service at a Greek restaurant). And my wallet wasn't hurt by the prices. However, there are many restaurants where one can get good service and value for the money. What I want when I have Greek food is Greek flavour; and on that count this counts as the most disappointing experience I've ever had a Greek restaurant.
The appetizers were tasty enough and I eagerly looked forward to my roast lamb. As soon as it arrived on the table I noticed a lack of herbs on the meat and the potato. Still hopeful, I put fork and knife to the lamb. Nicely cooked, its tenderness revealed itself with a gentle pull of the fork. As it met my tongue all hopefullness faded. As valiently as my tastebuds tried none of the Greek flavour so eagerly anticipated could be found. The same with the "Greek salad" (no, some cubed tomatoes and cucumber sprinkled with feta cheese does not a Greek salad make. The potato looked equally bland. I had about four bites and boxed it up to take home for possible salvage.
Folks, when you have to reach for the salt shaker at a Greek restaurant, it's not a good sign. For a good fill, this is your place. For true Greek flavour, keep looking.
