Popular Chilliwack eatery unveils enhanced space, expanded menu

You may already know where to find high-quality Greek food in Chilliwack.

But your eyes are sure to be opened when you experience the new look and menu choices at The Greek Islands restaurant.

Having just celebrated their grand reopening last week and welcomed back regular diners and newcomers as well, Yianni Sahamis and his staff invite you to drop in and experience the changes made to this popular Fraser Valley eatery.

The major renovation and modernization project took some time, Yianni admits, and he thanks his patrons for their patience during this time. But it was all worth it to be able to offer an even more pleasant dining experience. “We really did it for our customers,” he says.

Here’s a taste of what you’ll find at the newly upgraded location:

  1. More room to spread out With more booths installed in the rear of the restaurant, you’ve got even more comfortable seating choices for your family gatherings or private functions
  2. Appies anyone? With more choices on the menu, including a greater selection of appetizers, there’s new ways to enjoy great Greek food and more at The Greek Islands!
  3. Sports fans gather ’round As part of the renovation of the bar area, the restaurant has installed new TVs, so you can watch your favourite teams do battle. Enjoy a drink and appetizer after work or stop by with friends to relax and socialize.
  4. More comfortable entrance and waiting area A roomier entranceway, with new seating, gives you even more space if there’s a lineup to be seated.

Family history, attention to quality

The Greek Islands’ story dates back to 1982, when twin 24-year-old brothers George and Gus Sahamis opened their first restaurant in Abbotsford. Having worked in the hospitality industry in their native Greece before emigrating to Canada at age 16 in 1974, they strived to provide a high quality of food and atmosphere for their visitors. Today, with their family members now looking after things, those same high standards are maintained.

Award-winning fare is yours to share

In 2019 you and other readers voted The Greek Islands as your favourite Greek restaurant in the Chilliwack Progress’s A List awards. In 2017 they were rated #4 in the WORLD for Best Greek Restaurants by website Just Go Greece, and Trip Advisor ranked them #5 among 189 restaurantsin Chilliwack based on customer reviews. Yianni and the staff appreciate your support and look forward to welcoming you back.
