The working staff (owner?) was quite rude when she mixed up the orders of the three customers in the restaurant, and the food (once they got it right) was of food court quality at best. If you squint a little you can pretend it's just a mediocre chain restaurant, and forgive their shortcomings.

We were eager to try this place for a quick, tasty gyro on our way through town. The ambiance was lovely and welcoming. The staff were friendly and helpful - and eagerly cleared and cleaned off the table nearest outside so we could catch the breeze. Sadly, the positive experience ended there. The chicken gyros were enough to "fill a hole", but not very tasty. The tzatziiki wasn't generous enough to make up for how dry the chicken was - but neither were very flavourful. The Greek Salad was very overdressed and had way too many canned olives. We had the "combo", but had only 2 packages of BBQ doritos and 3 packages of ketchup potato chips from which to choose. Neither were very appealing, but we'd already paid. 2 unopened bags of doritos sit in the backseat of our car. To be fair, we understand there'd been some sort of festival recently - and perhaps their supplies and leftover food wasn't up to snuff. We're unlikely to be in the area again to go back, but wouldn't recommend it to others passing through.

Had never been here before but will certainly go again. I had a gyro and it was delicious..very fresh. Just wished they were open a little later so I could have a gyro for dinner. If you like fresh this is the place to go.

This place is my favorite go to for a quick solo lunch or if I'm on the run. Fast and delicious and nothing fried!! Beats the pants off of Tim's or Subway which can't even compare to the quality of freshness. You can also call your order in.

the cell phone free sign is for my customers, It is a form of respect to other customers who are having lunch and getting away from business and all we ask is that if your phone rings to please take it outside and for the donairs there are 4 choices either Beef and lamb or chicken or beef or falafil. and there are 4 choices for gyros also. you can yum it up by adding homemade hommus or feta cheese. and all prices include taxes so you know exactly how much you are paying . hope to see you again

My wife was wanting a gyro so we stopped in. We thought it was just a take out place but there is actually a few tables and counter space. It is not a fancy place by any means but everything was nice and clean and the people working there were friendly. The food they serve is very good and reasonably priced. We have returned there since the first time and have no hesitation it recommending it for anyone wanting a gyro.

thank you so much and and no it is not fancy it is homey and we want to keep the prices down so people can return often. 6.50 which includes taxes or the combo meal for 8.25 includes a gyros of your choice of meats and a pop and a small bag of chips thanks again. katherine

I have been going here for years, the gyros are always excellent. The prices are good and the service is friendly. They have a frequent user card for a free gyros as well.

Was there for lunch today. Had never been. I had the beef gyros. It was quite good. The combo came with potato chips. Potato chips. You can do better than that. Something Mediterranean maybe? But the real problem was my wife's Greek salad and pita. The pita seemed microwaved and tasteless. The salad was some lettuce, onion and very little cucumber. A bit of feta on top. The dressing was store bought. Not very good. So while the gyros was good, no effort went into the rest. Thumbs down.

sorry to hear as we have customers that tell us the greek salad is the best in town, but as you may know everyone does not put as much love into their salad as the owner so come on in and we have had many staff changes since you were in. thanks katherine

My niece took my daughter to this cafe and she has fallen in love with the gyros. We live near Victoria but whenever we are in town for a hockey tournament we ALWAYS stop by for our fill of gyros :) We are very pleased to find out they have a food truck and were recently at an event we attended and we had gyros for lunch much to my daughters delight.

Undercooked chicken and the owner had the audacity to argue with me, saying it's fine to eat. OK, well when I'm puking my guts out later tonight, you can come hold my hair back. Never again will either myself or my boss go back. You don't argue with your customers, period!!! Especially when you may have poisoned them. Enjoy the visit from VIHA!

thanks and I personally check the chicken with a thermometer in about 5 places to make sure that the chicken is up to temperature, then it is also put in a steamer and brought up to temperature so i am sure it is safe. sorry for your bad day

We went in to try out the donairs being someone who is quite familiar with the donair I might add. Specify if you want a gyro or a donair so once I got to try the donair sauce I was impressed. If there were to be a complained it would be the seasoning factor is lacking a little but other then that wow. Fresh Fresh Fresh. Fast Fast Fast. What more can I say. Great Job...

Just stopped in for a quick bite to eat using a coupon. I had a craving for a Gyro and that tangy Tzatziki sauce. We were not disappointed. Evan had a second one, ate it so fast I forgot to take a picture. Topped it off with a Baklava, Yummmy Off the beaten path but we will be back. Good job girls.

This is almost like a fast food restaurant but with far better tasting food! It's a bit of a funky dive, and not many choose to eat here, but to take out. Don't know how they spice the beel/lamb gyro but it is soooo yummy!! I go every once in a while for a quick fix!

thanks but many do eat here, we have tables and a counter and probably when you were in there was just no customers as our gyros are so amazing people eat them in record time and then they are off about their business. this really is not a hang out place but to get a quick healthy fast meal for people on the go. and as I say A gyros in your hand becomes a Yummy in your tummy. thanks again
