My boyfriend and I live in the area and really enjoy coming here often. The portions are large (not as large as Stephos on davie though haha) but it's enough to fill you up and have lots leftover on your plate or to go. The person who said the portion was small, clearly needs to get appetizers if they know they eat so much!
The only thing bad I have to say is that they need to relax a little on their prices. $18 for calamari dinner there is too much, I think $15 is more reasonable for that place. Even changing your plate to all greek salad, instead of the potatoes and rice, they charge an extra $4 from what I recall. Uhm ok?? Because that is more expensive? Just an excuse to take more money from people who want to avoid all those carbs.
Also, we often get delivery and one time my boyfriend and his friends ordered the $12.95 special on the front of their to go menu, but the lady on the phone said it's $13.95. To avoid argument, he ordered himself and his friends 5 meals. When they received their delivery, you can see that someone made a 3 out of the 2 with a blue pen to make $13.95. Is this a scam to get a better tip??? We have got this often and have never been told that...
All around service has been great, but just keep in mind that they aren't those overly, fake-friendly places that you tend to get from chain restaurants. It's more relaxed but the owner and servers are quite nice, don't take it the wrong way because they aren't acting all super happy and phony. I really like it for a change.

Cute, clean restaurant in Burnaby. Servers were very attentitive which was great but the food was overly salty. Don't get me wrong, salt is great and I do like some foods salty since it adds some flavour but woooah they need to take it easy! We ordered bbq pork fried rice, sweet and sour pork and spicy beans. The pork was okay, the typical over-battered chinese food that we have come to expect but the rice and beans were loaded with salt. The funny thing is, the food was good if they didn't ruin it like that. Upon asking the waitress, turns out it is MSG, not just table salt. Lovely.
