If you find yourself in the area I would choose Balkan House over all options. The restaurant has an old charm and family feel. The service is great and the food even better! Definitely a place worth driving to.

Now it is not in vogue to state you like pork but if you like pork and want to be amazed by what a good cook could do with it then this is the place to go. We ordered the platter dinner made for four of us at $17 per person. Out comes fresh warm homemade bread and butter then... More

Back when I was in the Army in West Germany I got to go to a gasthaus run by Yugoslavian family. When I saw Balkan House on Yelp I knew I had to go. We had the buffet so we could try a number of dishes. For a buffet the food was pretty good and they had a nice selection... More

I was given a choice to select a place to go to for a goodbye mini-party. I chose Balkan House because I've never been and know Eastern European cuisine. All in all, the place is nice, even though it could use some updating (at least to the washrooms). If you're vegetarian, you'll be told "wrong restaurant". There's pretty much no... More

Waiter was not very pleasant (did his job at a minimum). Did not have to wait too long for dinner which was nice, BUT, not impressed! I don't need to go into specifics, but my advice is to take your money elsewhere and go get good 'quality' food. This location New Westminster, BC

After reading some good reviews we thought we'll try it. It's definitely for the meat lovers. We all had the buffet. A good variety of meat dishes. The pork loin and the sausage were very good. It wasn't that busy when we're there but not much service from our waiter. Anyways, it was still a good night out. We would... More

I have been a customer of this restaurant from time to time. They are heavy on the meat dishes; If you're a vegetarian I would suggest giving this place a pass. They offer a variety of stews, meats, and platters. Their meat platters are enormous, and their platter for two (includes rice and salad); two adult men with hearty appetites... More

We are always looking for good food and good atmosphere. We found both at Balkan House. We went on a Sunday. We were pleasantly surprised that not only do they have regular entrees but a great looking buffet. Some chose soups (not included in buffet but well worth it) in addition to the buffet. Both were great- veal or tripe.... More

I have been there a couple of times and the food has been great. I love the home sausages. This time we had the meat platter for 2. They started us off with a great salad very fresh.

Balkan House Restaurant Tucked away on Edmonds Street, just off Canada Way in Burnaby, is a little gem of a restaurant, probably most people would never think of trying. That’s not really a problem though as they have a very loyal and devoted crowd of regulars. Drop in most any night and you are likely to hear some Serbian being... More
