We are regulars at this Greek place. I like the lamb chops (Pathakias Skaras), lamb souvlaki, and the calamari. Some people are complaining about items I never order but if you order one of those dishes you shouldn't go wrong.
The service is fair to excellent depending on who's working. There's two brothers who I think own the place. One seems to like to work there and one doesn't. The first one is friendly and the other one is not.
The value is good. It may be a bit more expensive than some other Greek places but the food is better.
The ambience is fairly standard for a Greek place. Just about any Greek restaurant in Vancouver is the same.

I work near this restaurant. There's only a couple that are within walking distance from my office and this is the only one I go to any more. I am a regular there and I can see a few others whenever I go.
They have soups, salads, sandwiches. But what I usually order is the specials. They usually have 2 or 3 specials a day and I can usually find something I like. If I don't then I usually order one of their paninis.
The one thing I don't like is that the water is not cold enough. They have a cistern for water at their coffee station. It used to have ice in it but since their ice machine broke they haven't been doing that. They have glasses in the fridge which you can use which helps a little but but not a lot.
Their lunch rush seems to happen right around 12. I like to get there between 11 to 11:30 to avoid this. You could probably come after 1 pm as well to avoid the crowds.
I don't like to sit outside but if you do they have tables outside where you can enjoy the sunshine in the summer.
