It was a nice sunny day in Steveston, and we decided to drop by Kisamos for lunch to see if we could get a table because the last few times we tried to go there during dinner they were packed. They weren't busy at all, with only 4 or so other tables. We were greeted nicely and got a table right away. We didn't take too long to order, I went with the calamari plate and my wife went with lamp chops.
Then we started to wait while our two kids got fussy.... Luckily the server brought some small pieces of pita which were warm and tasted good.
Eventually, about 25 minutes later, I noticed that the lamp chops were at the window, but they sat there, waiting for the calamari so they could be brought together.. Food all arrived finally after about 30 mins. Quite a long wait given that they weren't busy, but I figured they had to cook the lamp chops... So we started to eat.
Greek salad - Cucumbers were definitely not fresh, a bit mushy. Not enough feta, and the tomatoes weren't too fresh either.
Rice - Was just ok.
Potatoes - Were somewhat overcooked, but not horrible.
Lamp chops - These were actually not bad. Not overcooked, and seasoned nicely.
Calamari - Biggest disappointment. They were a bit mushy, and almost tasteless. They should have been the star of the dish. Some of them even seemed a bit underdone. I would have complained, but we had waited so long for our food and we had to leave so I just left the food and paid the bill.
We have been to Kisamos many times in the past and have always enjoyed the food. This trip, however, left me feeling sick to my stomach due to the mushy calamari, so we won't be returning. The best thing we ate was the pita bread.

Anyone complaining about the price at this joint, are just not making smart ordering decisions.
Every Monday, you can get a Fatburger & Fries for 6.99! That Burger comes with allt he regular toppings, and if you want, you can add grilled onions, onion rings, and bbq sauce, all for FREE. When they ask you if you want bacon/cheese? Or a pop? Just say no, that's what makes it seem expensive. Just drink a glass of water and drop some lemon in it.
Add to this that they have a Stamp Card! Buy 6 Burgers and get 1 Free. That Free Burger can be ANY of the specialty burgers, which are all great.
I dine here once a week and the quality is always good, service decent, and dine in area clean.

During work lunch hour, went here to give it a try as a co-worker recommended it. The 3 of them got the "wrapped" versions, and I tried the usual butter chicken on rice, which cost $1 more.
What I ended up getting was a very small amount of rice, topped with the butter chicken curry.
While the food did taste good, there wasn't nearly enough rice, and if I wanted naan bread, I would of had to pay extra. This food would of been worth the price if it came with 50% more rice, and a piece of naan.
Won't be going back.
