OPA! Of Greece boasts high quality, fresh, quick serve Greek/Mediterranean cuisine.
I like Opa & how fresh & their food is very delicious. I like the chicken pita, has lots of flavour with taziki sauce & veggies. I even tried their chicken souvalki with veggies & salad, and its prepared right before your eyes.
The service is quick, friendly, & Opa caters more to take out. If you want to eat there, space isn't that big, its clean, bright with a cheery staff to greet you.
If in the area, I suggest you check it out. Food is fresh & good.
When I'm pressed for time, Opa!s pita rolls and salads are terrific. The pita bread seems to be freshly made, light, garlicky and delicious.
Personally, I'm a fan of the chicken pita and caesar salad.
As for the service and ambiance, well, it's formatted as a take out place. It's clean and pleasant, servers are nice, prompt and efficient so as take out goes, it's pretty nice.
Opa is a great place for a Monday night when there's nothing in the fridge and you don't want to go out to eat at a real greek place.
The food is healthy and although sometimes it's not as good as, let's say, Stepho's, it is quick and tastes good.
The service is always fast as everything is already semi-cooked. Portions are good and selection is regular.
Want fast food that isn't McDonalds? Opa is the place to go. Something like a greek subway they take your order and make it right in front of you while you wait. The portions/price ratio is excellent and the extra tzatziki sauce is always a blessing. Pretty much good for whatever you are looking for. Veggie, Lamb, Chicken or the mysterious Gyro meat. They also have a selection of salads such as greek and ceasar and they also make great french fries which have a spicy seasoning to keep me coming back. The guys in there are always great, very fast and polite. Many a time I chose them over Steamrollers when I didn't have enough time to make dinner before the hockey game and wanted something great!
I was a regular Opa customer at the new downtown location at Pacific Centre Mall. I was really happy that they had finally opened up a fast and real tasty fast food Greek place. I really enjoy the meals there and the portions are really good. Though you have to wait a little bit longer because they prepare the stuff for you fresh. Just look at the line-ups and you know it's a popular place.
My only "beef" is that they don't use gloves when they prepare your food in front of you. That's right! Just think of all that bacteria and nasties when they prepare that tasty meal for you. My word of advice....stay away from anything that includes or requires pita.
