I've been to Minoas a few times to dine, and have enjoyed the meals each time. However, I ordered take out last week and was disappointed at the service. The lady who took my order was not friendly and rushed through in taking my order. She hung up as I was saying 'thanks' and 'bye'. What really disappointed me though,... More

We had a Groupon special platter for two, and there was so much food. Lamb, beef kabobs, chicken kabobs, ground beef, lots of rice, greek potatoes, carrots. It came with a small greek salad to start. Service was very quick and food was hot. The Groupon was for $29.99 for two and such a deal deal. We'd do it again.... More

We stopped by this lovely Greek restaurant for an early dinner on a Saturday night. We had a Groupon and were delighted by the Greek dinner platter giving us the opportunity to try many new dishes. It was great! This family run restaurant is a great place to feel as though you are in someone's home!

It was a residential house but the owner decided to turn it into a Greek restaurant in the early 80s. Talked to the daughter last time I visited and she mentioned that the family was thinking about closing it for good but so far they still do business as usual. YES! Good roasted lamb and calamari and house wine is... More

I have been many times but not much lately. I was a bit disappointed this time. The spanakopita was ok but I don't think it was fresh.

This place is so pricey compared to other Greek restaurants. The Greek salad is so tiny and the calamari is a mediocre portion. We spent 60 dollars for 2 people and left barely full with no leftovers. Which is very rare for a Greek restaurant. Will not be going back. The place was empty and now I know why.

Groupon offered $29.99 for a prix fixe Greek dinner for two. There was beef, lamb and chicken and a nice assortment of veggies. The deal wasn't bad, about a 51% discount. The service and meal were about par for the course.

I had a good experience at Minoas Tavern. It is really cool when you walk in from the downstairs only to be seated upstairs. It gives a space separation for privacy and so you can take in the interior design. The food is good because everything comes with tzatziki. It has a strong garlic flavour which I love.

The good: - the staff; owners still serve! - the food...done right! My only gripe is that my chicken was a bit on the overcooked side - the prices; you walk away at least feeling you got your money's worth. The not so good ... - just like 29 years ago...location is easy to miss and parking can be a... More

The traffic on Kingsway is heavy, and the SkyTrain roars overhead, but set back a little from the street on the north side, opposite the front gate of Central Park is a family run treasure that really deserves your attention. Despite the location, there is a pleasant atmosphere of calm, and from the sunny second floor dining room, one almost... More
