New York New York Greek Restaurant6361 152 Street, Suite 301, Surrey
A Little Nook with a Lovely Surprise
Submitted Saturday, August 18, 2012 - 9:39am [Dine in]

A friend and I decided to try New York New York last night. The outside is unpretentious and partially hidden behind the (now closed) Java Hut on the corner of 64th and 152nd, so it has been easy to drive by all these years and assume it was just another one of those Mom & Pop steakhouses. I was surprised when a co-worker informed me that it was actually a Greek restaurant and a place where she and her husband go when they need to tame their cravings for Mediterranean food.

New York New York is a small restaurant with a combination of booths and tables, very clean, very simple, somewhat dated but cozy. Our waitress was top notch and tended our table with finesse and efficiency. I ordered the vegetarian platter with an unusual spanakopita that was rolled into a cigar shape (nice touch) which was delivered hot and delicious and served with the usual side combination of rice, lemon roasted potato and greek salad. The portions were very generous, very tasty and I was completely stuffed by the end of my meal -- my friend had to take half of hers home with her. The meal was one of the best that I've had, but If I had to make one complaint I would say that I wish my Greek salad was chilled versus room temperature -- other than that I have nothing but praise for this place.

By the end of our meal my friend and I concluded that we would definitely recommend this place to others - the $20 price tag on entrees may seem steep to some, but I've paid almost as much for limp, greasy, tired Greek food at other places and this was worth the investment!

Greek Village7953 120 Street, Delta
Kitchen Nightmare
Submitted Saturday, June 2, 2012 - 7:39am [Dine in]

A friend from Delta recommended this restaurant to me (it was around the corner from her house) so I decided to invite a long-time friend to join me there for dinner last night. I'm lucky that we're still friends.

Aside from the snippy waitress who tried her hardest to smile through gritted teeth, we endured food that would make anyone who considered "Greek" their favourite style of cuisine, cringe at the misnomer.

The thing I was most surprised with was the quality of the food. I ordered the spanokopita entree and it arrived charred. We're not talking brown - we're talking blackened charred. What shocked me was that it had to pass through the line cook, the expo and the waitress to get to me and apparently passed their stamp of approval with flying colours. Needless to say it was inedible and when I sent it back another was returned, not black this time, but dark brown. At this point sending it back would have been ridiculous. The vegetables were swimming in olive oil, the rice dry and the pita seemed stale.

My friend ordered the "Village Chicken" which was chicken covered in a clumpy, congealed mushroom sauce. She had a few bites and pushed it aside, and being the gracious person that she is, didn't want to embarass me by talking about my now, poor restaurant choice for the evening.

A complete and total waste of 45 dollars. Sorry reviewers who gave this place a high rating. You really need to get out more -- there are several excellent Greek restaurants within 10 km of this place.
