Jim's is a household name for me. Whenever I want some quality Greek food, I order from the best - here! I have been coming here for years now with my family, ever since I was little. What I love about Jim's, or at least what keeps me coming back is the warm, honey feeling Jim treats us with everytime we go in for a bite. He makes us feel at home and like family. Not to mention the servers are superbly trained in being helpful and accomodating. And how could I forget the food! Their kalamaria tastes delicious, especially with the tzatziki sauce, but my favorite is their lamb souvlaki. The lamb meat is tender always soft and tender.
Jim's is a true hidden gem. My family enjoys Greek food, and we have tried many of the restaurants in the Vancouver/Surrey/Delta area. Most are range from "meh" to "decent," but Jim's is the exception. Although is it in a bit of an odd strip-mall location, it is well worth checking out. The lady who serves is incredibly sweet, the restaurant is spotless, and the food is fresh and well-seasoned. The lamb is especially good, as is the spanakopita; it's the best I've had anywhere. Go!
We have been coming here for over 5 years and have *never* been disappointed. The food is always great, as is the service.
The only reason we don't go that often is because of the price. That being said, you get what you pay for. This is quality worth paying for.
We have been going to this restaurant since it opened for both the mussels and the value of a shared meal . the mussels are done in a spicy wine sauce and if you like a little spice you can not resist picking up the spoon enjoying the broth with pita .The mussels , a large lamb souvlaki meal with a 1/2 liter of wine for less than $45.00 is a true bargain ,. Combine this with a friendly attentive service and a casual atmosphere and it always enjoyable .
I've been going to Jim's on and off for several years now so I thought I'd write up a review. It's a pretty average Greek restaurant complete with vines on the walls and ceiling and placemats with a map of Greece on them and nothing pretentious about the place. I've only seen it really busy once, on Valentine's Day, but most of the time the place is half full. Therefore, I would expect the service to be better than it is. The servers are friendly but often times the order takes upward of 40 minutes to arrive and the pita bread shows up after the entrees. On the aforementioned Valentine's visit the waitress lost our order so we paid for our drinks and left.
Food wise, it's very comparable to other Greek places in Vancouver like Olympia, Stepho's etc. Souvlaki, roast lamb, moussaka, dolmathes... all the usual suspects. The calimari comes with excellent tzatziki and lots of lemon and the pitas come hot out of the oven brushed with olive oil. My only complaint is that every dish comes with the same lemon potatoes, rice pilaf and Greek salad as every other Greek place I've ever been to. There must be more interesting sides in Greek cuisine and if anyone knows of a place that's different, I'd love to hear it. However, if you want basic Greek food, this place is quite reasonably priced and worth a trip if you're in the neighbourhood. Just be prepared to wait a while for your food.
Dined here again over the weekend. We used our entertainment coupon without any hasstle or questions. Some places you visit at times can give you a bit of a dirty look, not even one question at Jim the Greek.
The food was good as always this is our 3rd time dining here. It was hot came out quick and tasted just like Greek food should! I had roast lamb and my wife had chicken skewer dinner. Both meals nothing to complain about both were hot, clean, and more then enough to fill you up. We always dine here when we are in Surrey and have a craving for Greek food.
We will come back again in the future!
My husband and I went for dinner here to celebrate a year of wedded bliss, the waitress was very good, we have eaten there before and really enjoyed the food so that we would go for our Anniversary dinner apparently the product is inconsistant My husbands salmon was less then fresh it had that oily oldish taste fish gets after a few too many days sitting around, The potatoes were boiled and greyish (not greek potatoes at all) The ceasur I drank was very good if a little on the small side,The thing that ruined our dinner was the owners wife sitting there watching the t.v. at what seemed like full volume we got to here about a five year old dieing and the expected heat wave etc... if we wanted to subject ourselves to the news or t.v. for that matter we would have ordered in as opposed to dressing up and thinking we were going for a decent meal...we were both disappointed and disgusted we are NEVER going back. I do feel bad for the young girl who waitressed though as she is good and is wasted there. I would never recommend this place.
I've been going to Jim The Greeks for years and I've almost always enjoyed myself, left full, satisfied & recommended them to friends & colleges. It's true that the restaurant never used to appear very busy on any random weeknight but since the renovation, sometime last year, since I've gone it's definitely been busier than before and that's great to see. The usual face one immediately sees when walking tho the door is the hardworking wife Maria. She'll usually greet you immediately if she's not serving at that exact time and seat you where ever your comfortable. The menus and waters are almost there immediately and the table candle is lit without request. I almost always order the Klefico "Roast Lamb" either with or without the Tomato Sauce on top. It's a huge plate and the price $12.95 is unbeatable. Up the road it's $16.95 for almost the same thing; I think Jim's is bigger. The plate comes Greek Salad, Lots of Lamb, Greek Potato, Greek Rice, Pita on the Side with Tzatziki & Lemon Slices. If you'd rather sub a Caesar Salad at no extra cost that is an option instead of the Greek Salad. Jim will usually make an appearance either from the kitchen where he might be cooking or the back room and he'll make a point of coming around to say Hi to anyone dining. So what can I say negative well...because the restaurant isn't always so busy on the weeknights I think the Servers have a high turnover rate due to probably low tipouts and as a result, if it's not Maria serving you, then you might have hit or miss service. The food is almost top notch only thing is some of the sides might show some minor signs of being reheated but usually not and definitely not a reason to miss out. The value is incredible for the price and better than any other Greek restaurant that I know of. The ambiance after the remodel is much nicer and brighter but I personally don't like the new big screen LCD in the main dining area and it's a bittt to open not a real cozy feel unless you're sitting in the booths. All in all tho I think the best Greek restaurant around and definitely something I hope will be around for many more years in the future. Go check it out and say Hi to Maria & Jim.
