Good greek option in Burnaby heights. Family run restaurant with typical Greek decor. I came here for lunch on a Saturday and sadly it was so not busy, only 4 tables. I had the lamb souvlaki and it tasted really good. The service was good and friendly.

Have eaten there before due to relatives living nearby. Came early and there was no problem getting a table. The ceiling fan over the reception area was not running and the amount of dust on it and dirt hanging down was remarkable. When we were seated we noted the walls were also dirty and later visiting the toilets, the same... More

Came with some Greek salad, rice, potato, tzatziki and pita bread. It was a good size portion so was I didn't need dinner! As it was not busy, the service was good and... More

When I came here on a Friday night it was quiet. Only a couple of other tables in the place. The servers were often missing, but the food was very good. I had lamb souvlaki and the rice was tender and well cooked - something often lacking in Greek restaurants in Vancouver. The lamb was also tender and flavorful, very... More

have been going there for a few years and sometimes the food and service is very good and other times average food and average service. Kind of hit and miss. Think it's better when the family is there but the kids don't seem to have the same passion that they used to have. Definitely needs an update and could be... More

Today, I went to lunch with coworkers as I am leaving the company. Our server was friendly and courteous. The arrival of food was a little slow; however, the food we had was really good! Goodbye restaurant as I will not be in the area anymore, this was my last Greek lunch! Thanks 😃

My first visit to this family-run Greek restaurant. Sfinaki Greek Taverna opened in Burnaby Heights in December 1995 by Pam and Tom Karamessinis with their four children. In 2014, Sfinaki was voted the Best Greek Restaurant in Burnaby and is a local favorite, 2015 marks the restaurant's 20th anniversary. I was impressed with the prawn and scallop souvlaki; it was...

There are a lot of great places to eat in Burnaby so wile Sfinaki is ok, it doesn't really distinguish itself either. If you're in the area and craving Greek, by all means stop in. If not, there are many, many other local options to check out.
