Burnaby Readers’ Choice Awards: Best Greek cuisine winners

We’re continuing with our Beacon’s Readers’ Choice Award category winners

Alright, Burnaby. We’ve announced the top restaurants from our 2023 Beacon’s Readers’ Choice Awards, presented by Tourism Burnaby. Now it’s time to highlight some more winners by category.

We’re breaking down the top three restaurant winners in each of the 32 categories included in this year’s awards, as voted by you.

Here are the winners of the best Greek cuisine in Burnaby.

First place: Sfinaki

Serving the Heights community for over 25 years, Sfinaki has kept its position as Burnaby’s best Greek restaurant time and time again. All of their dishes are made from scratch right down to the tzatziki, and items like grilled lamb chops, prawn and scallop souvlaki and keftedes are all marinated and grilled to perfection.

Address: 4061 Hastings St., Burnaby

This cozy takeout and catering restaurant offers a wide variety of Greek specialties like saganaki, souvlaki and other delicious mains like moussaka and slow roasted lamb shoulder. Be sure to check out their dessert menu too—options like bougatsa (semolina and orange infused custard wrapped in phyllo) and greek yogurt cheesecake sound incredible.

Address: 4651 E Hastings St., Burnaby

Third place: Minoas Greek Taverna (now closed)

Minoas Greek Taverna was a long-standing family eatery in Burnaby offering a long list of Greek specialities like grilled seafood, souvlaki and tons of tasty appetizers like dolmades and spanakopita. The restaurant opened in 1986 and closed its doors after 37 years as a staple in the community.

Address: 3823 Kingsway, Burnaby
