  • the worst experience ever, the food is so and so, but the services are horrible..they rarely collected the plates from our table; we had to constantly ask for water...horrible, and at the end we have been charged one extra person and an imposed gratuity of 15% that they did not deserve; never going again

  • I wen there on a weekday for Lunch Buffet.

    In all 5 of us went . The Lunch Buffet was $ 12 per person .

    The senior citizens in our group got a 10 % off senior's discount without us even asking for it ..they gave it to us on their own automatically , which I thought was a nice gesture .

    The appetizer's & desert were amazing ..there was lot to chose from & everything was fresh .

    The main dishes were a bit limited but it was more about quality than quantity , so I didn't mind .

    The souvlaki was being made fresh so it was nice & juicy .

    2 people in our group were vegeterian but they still had a lot to chose from .

    For $ 12 , the weekday lunch buffet is definitely worth it ..the place was quite busy when I went there ..it looked like lot of people from nearby offices had come in groups for their compamy lunch etc .

    There were 2 hostesses who were very fast & courteous ..and were clearing our plates & tables quickly even though it was fairly busy .

    The only downside I saw was that there was no lamb dish .

    Our group stuffed ourselves with all the goodies :) ..just from the top of my head some of the dishes that I ate ( there were more than the ones mentioned below ) ..but I couldn't try all of them ..the stuff I ate is below :) ..can't believe I sampled all th stuff below :)

    Dolmadakia , Feta Cheese , Olives , Spanakopita , Hummus , Tzatziki , Seafood salad , Calamari , Spicy rice , meat balls , beef stew , chicken in a sauce , pork souvlaki , chicken souvlaki , mediterranean pizza ( was OK not that great ) , Moussaka , grilled mushrooms , greek burgers ( almost tasted like flat round kebabs ) , Baklava , Almond cake , Walnut cake .

    They also had 4 types of Ice Creams ..I ate 2 of them :)

    I was eating for about 1 1/2 hr

  • Just got back to the hotel room after having dinner at The Big Fat Greek Buffet with colleagues. We chose it because it was walking distance from our hotel on Dixie.

    We went about 8 pm on a Monday night, and the restaurant was absolutely empty, which was a little disconcerting based on some of the reviews I've seen here, but we decided to give it a shot anyway. What a great decision! The food was absolutely delicious, from the salad bar, to all of the main courses to dessert.

    The salad bar ingredients were fresh, the lettuce crisp, and I couldn't believe some of the ingredients. Fresh, large chunks of feta cheese, calamari that was fantastic, and not rubbery at all. The dolmades were definitely home made, and were worth a second helping!

    The moussaka and pastichio were delicious, as were the lemon potatoes and the eggplant shoes. The pork souvlaki was awesome as well. The biggest problem I had was that everything I tried was so good that I wanted to have seconds of everything.

    The baklava and almond cookies were delicious as well. They must have been homemade.

    I'm not from Mississauga, but will be mentioning this place to colleagues who work here as a lunch option. I'll also be making a point of bringing my wife back the next time we're through.

  • Fabulous Greek buffet - we have spent many thousands of dollars in restaurants over the years and this is one of the best values and taste for an inexpensive price. Food is mostly grilled - not like Mandarin where most things are deep fried and all taste the same. This is as close to good home cooking as you can get. Service was outstanding.

  • Lets start with price vs options = not worth the money. not much option. The food was cold including the grilled items. the person behind the grill was handling the food with his bare hands - no gloves.
    Half the people on the table got really sick...don't waste your time or money. McDonald is more worth it then this place

  • Yes I did notice they charge kids as adults what is the matter with this place how did figure a 10 year old is an adult when mandarin doesn't even do that not to mention there selection is not even half the size of mandarin and the service of the mandarin is awesome there at your beck and call for everything this place it takes awhile to get anything.

Edit 5/13/11 - their website now says its $2 sharing for kids under 4, 4-10 is half price. As for 10 being the cutoff, I guess you have to draw the line somewhere.

  • This place sucks the food is not anything special they charge $20.00 for kids $20.00 that is rediculous you can go to mandarin and anyone under 12 is considered a kid but over there they made up there own rules and think that a 10 year olds should be charged as an adult ,do not go there and eat, its a rip off and it takes forever to get a refill and new napkins, service sucks and food is extremely oily and guess what???they have an indian making greek food that sucks if i want greek food I want a greek person making it not a indian, also If I want indian food I will get an indian making the food , that sucks the service sucks and they riip off for kids which makes it many reason not to go there you guys suck the bag just because you are the ownly greek buffet they think they can rip people off.

  • What a nice family run place.
    We dropped in on a whim and aren't we glad we did. Our waitress was darling. The owner was greeting people and was very pleasant.
    The food was made by Mama in the kitchen, and it tasted like it was.
    The eggplant shoes were to die for. I think I ate half the tray by myself. The calamari was fried fresh infront of us. The rice pudding was to die for!!!!!!
    What a great meal at such a reasonable price.

  • I was reading the reviews then visted this restaurant with a few friends, and people always say read the feedback before you go , but I ignored what was said, the food was really bad it tasted like mould , like the food was sitting there all day , the foodcritics feedback was very accurate, I will take the advise of this feedback before going to any restaurant next time.I asked the owner i believe it was for extra napkins a few times and she never came, when I got home I started feeling really sick I got high fever and dizzy then I am on the crapper for hours and I had to go to the hospital for dehydration, quality control is very important and I think I will call the health inspector on this particular restaurant.
