For a restaurant that had only been open a week, we were amazed at the quality of food, service and make-over. It used to be the Mug & Musket some years back, then it morphed into first one then another sports bars, neither a big draw.
We tried the Greek platter for two, just so we could sample a variety. Everything was excellent, with only a minor complaint; I found the roast lamb just a little too salty and fatty for my taste, but the rest was delicious and the Calamari was the best I have ever eaten.
Even the salads were first rate, the creamy Greek dressing was really good and the Caesar salad was made with a traditional dressing, that I haven’t tasted in a very long time (it’s the anchovy’s people).
We thought we were as full as possible, but Mike showed up with a complimentary Crème Brule for us to share, he browned it at the table and it was light, delicious and appreciated.
A few weeks later we ordered Take Out, and again we were not disappointed. It was just as good and we were able to drink our own wine.
Surrey needs more restaurants like Greek NightZ.
Great food, great ambience, great service.

Had not been to this restaurant for several years, obviously it had not left a lasting impression on us, but we decided to give it another try, mainly because a couple of other places we had tried were booked solid.
Wish we had turned around and left before we got seated, the place has a fusty smell, perhaps the tarp on the roof had something to do with it, and the place was half empty, an unusual situation in Langley on a Saturday evening!
The decor is really sad, it used to be a Schnitzel Restaurant yeas ago and the decor has never been changed.
I had the salmon, it came drenched in a barbeque sauce, it tasted not too bad once I scraped all of the sauce off, my partner had the schnitzel and I don't think I have ever tasted anything so bad.
He said it was tasteless, so I sampled it. He was wrong, it tasted like cheap cooking oil. The waitress asked how the meals were and we complained about the Schnitzel, the manager showed up and suggested that we probably weren't used to eating veal, very condescending. Then he explained that they cook it by brushing it with olive oil and then grilling it.
I think they forgot the grilling part.
They did offer to bring something else, but at that point, we had lost confidence in them being able to deliver good food and frankly the smell of the place was getting a bit nauseating.
The waitress was obviously in a snit, she refused to make eye contact from then on and the verbal contact was reduced to grunts.
The bill was delivered, there was no adjustment made to the price of the meals and no apology.
Needless to say we will never go back, the place has no saving graces. Overall the food was badly prepared, there was zero ambiance, the prices are high and the service was very unprofessional. I would also question the cleanliness.
