Minoas Greek Taverna3823 Kingsway, Burnaby
Simply Overpriced
Submitted Wednesday, August 12, 2009 - 9:04pm [Dine in]

Before entering the restaurant, the place looked like a big old house. Walking in, a waiter happily greeted while he was heading up the stairs. We were seated to the window and the waitress offered that we can sit at other tables. The waitress was nice in giving us choices of seats. Service was very authentic and they treated us with good customer care and without being too disturbing.

The food was solid. I had a lamb souvlaki. The entree came with greek salad appetizer. The salad tasted great and fresh. When the souvlaki came, I was a bit disappointed about the portion. For $15-16, I would have expected a bit more from the entree. For my entree, there were two sticks of lamb and rice. The entree portion was not memorable and tasted like lamb from festivals.

The ambience offers an old, rustic look. The place was quiet, with old greek music playing on the big rear view projection TV in the background. To me the old rustic decor was simply because it was old. I felt awkward because of how old things were. Maybe others would appreciate this type of ambience.

In summary, I felt that the food was solid but overpriced. Even if service was included into the food, the place does not deserve to charge that type of price range.

Going Sub Par
Submitted Wednesday, August 12, 2009 - 8:37pm [Dine in]

The place was packed around 1 pm. There were still many seats available. We were sat right away. The table cleaned right away. Waving down the waitress to get our orders taken required a bit of effort. The food came pretty fast and we got our beverages came before the food came. When the food arrived, the waitress placed the dish incorrectly. The rice for my lemon grill chicken were mushy and the chopped lettuce were not fresh. The lemon chicken was the only part that went right as the dipping sauce tasted bland.

My impression of the service has gone down. The waitresses were not very friendly. The waitress lack to care about customer service. When my friend asked for the bill, the waitress took the receipt and appear not happy that we requested for the bill. Anyways, I will be hesitant to come back to this place.
