Description: Two twin brothers George and Gus Sahamis left Greece in 1975 and traveled to Canada to pursue their dreams when they were young men in their late teens. They brought with them a passion for quality and service that started out as selling souvlakis straight off the spit to the local community and tourists in their hometown of Sparta, Greece, this became the benchmark of their success as they opened The Greek Islands Restaurants throughout the Fraser Valley 21 years later in 1996. It was this same dedication to quality & service that George and Gus passed down to, their sons and nephews in 2003.Today, the privately-owned Greek Islands Restaurants is based in Abbotsford and Chilliwack BC, is operated by George and Gus Sahamis with their sons, nephews and son in law, Yianni #1, Niko, Christo, Yianni #3, and Yianni #4 with two locations in Abbotsford and one in Chilliwack.Greek Islands Restaurants are known for outstanding food, service and atmosphere where people go to be treated like family, to be entertained, and to truly feel like your on vacation in Greece.Greek Islands Restaurants would like to extend a warm “Thank you” to all of our guests for their continued support and patronage..!!

“great place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2013

Very good food with pleasant service and dining atmosphere. Nice decor. We had the Friday night special for two with a shared appertizer and dessert, and individual entree, served with a basket of pita, a bowl of soup each and a plate of salad each. All for $45!! Good value for money! We had deep fried calamari, which was nicely done, and quite tender.Cream corn soup was a little thick but was OK. The Greek salad was out of this world - so creamy with cucumber, green peppers, tomatoes and nice feta. The chicken Tegania was perfect, so was the thallasopita - seafood and asparagus in creamy bechamel sauce in fillo. Baklava served with honey for dessert - but had to doggy bag as we had too much to eat already! Would visit again when in town for sure!

“I'd go every night if I could”

What's not to like? The menu is wide, the service is good and the food is always delicious. We never leave hungry. They are accommodating for special events, e.g. birthdays, etc.

“Best in town.”

Wonderful food, and not just Greek. Try the Thai stir fry, it's my favourite. The greek salad is the best I've had anywhere.

“excellent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2012

My husband and I dont get out very often but when we do we dont even talk about where to go its always just a given that its greek islands. We have always had a great meal with fantastic service! We also once and awhile order food in for the two of us since we have young kids. Its always ready when we go to pick it up and always hot. We recommend greek islands to anyone looking for great food and awesome service in abbotsford!!
