Mad Greek Restaurant is popular for its roasted lamb, platter of chicken donair and shrimp soulvaki, grilled pork, Achaia platter and crispy, tender calamari. Caesar and Greek salad are also a popular choice among the diet-conscious patrons. A modern interior setting complimented by neutral shades of amber makes the culinary experience all the more unique.
This is my favourite Greek restaurant to eat at in Richmond. All of the dishes I have had their are delicious, and I can't get enough of their ekmek!
This was likely our last time at this Richmond "institution".
Sad to see it go.
a favourite-good as always. rice could be a little less buttery/oily. thx
Booked Mad Greek at last minute. Was able to accommodate party of 9 people easily. Waitress was very attentive - actually there were two people who served us.. One order had issue and came much later than the rest of our orders. Waitress apologized and brought a pop on the house for the person. Everyone enjoyed the food, especially the roast lamb. Will be back next time we need a large place to have lunch
We did love the food and the Server was very friendly. The only issue we had was the table we were given. We were placed in a small table at the back of the room next to two extra large tables filled with people. I did expect that with a reservation and it being Valentine's Day that we would have been placed differently.
We went to the Mad Greek New Year's Eve at 7 pm and were surprised that there was lots of seating available. We had reservations, but they probably weren't needed. The server was friendly and accommodating. 3 of us ordered the roast lamb. It was quite lean but very bland. We were surprised that the Greek salad was not included with the meal but could be substituted for the veggies. We all chose to do that, however we would have preferred both. 1 guest had the calamari dinner. The calamari was very doughy and tasteless. We ordered ekmek for dessert for the 4 of us to share and it was delicious. We also shared a bottle of Boutari which the waitress told us was the 2nd to last bottle so if we wanted more we should order it. We didn't want to order it at that time so she graciously said she would put it aside in case we changed our minds. We needed to leave the restaurant by 8:30 and we were done in time, although we had to wait for our bill. It was an okay dinner, but nothing to rave about.
The food was basic, simple and tasty. For a Saturday evening it was very quiet. I have to admit, there is never enough tzatsiki. We were celebrating an anniversary and were surprised that there was no belly dancer as indicated on the website.
The restaurant was clean with a very nice atmosphere. The waitress was both attentive and knowledgeable and I thought the prices were very competitive, particularly the wine list. We had two appetizers, including the garlic shrimp. When it arrived, it was warm but not hot. I have had the same appetizer in other Greek restaurants and it usually arrives very hot, if not sizzling. The only reservation time we could get was 7:45 so I expected the restaurant to be very busy. I was surprised that when we arrived it was only about 65% full which is unusual for a good restaurant on Saturday night. Soon after our meal arrived staff began cleaning up for the day and while the waitress did check in from time to time, we felt we were being rushed. I doubt that more than a half-dozen customers came in after we did and when we left not long after 9, there were only two tables still occupied. Our overall experience was okay, but not great. Thanks for the opportunity to comment. I hate to see restaurants with potential and with good people working at them fail.
We had a good dinner and experience. The food was goo and the service was awesome.
Good food, good service and a great atmosphere, the lamb souvlaki was excellent.
The place had very high ceiling. It felt nice and spacious. I had the Roast Lamb. It was very tender and it came with rice, veggies and potatoe. Good portion size. I did eat it all! I'd have love it even more if Greek Salad would have came with it. That's what I'm used to. But in this case, it was either the greek salad or vegetables. Our server lady was very friendly and she gave very good service. We'll probably go back again another time.
Mad Greek Restaurant is an excellent authentic Greek food restaurant located on Westminster Hwy near Alderbridge Way. When we arrived, we noticed that parking was definitely a premium. There are some other parking spaces designated for other businesses which may have been closed at night, but we did not want to take a chance. Fortunately, someone left within minutes.
Once inside, we mentioned to the hostess that we have reservation, but they could not find my reservation booked through Open Tables. They seated us anyway as the restaurant was only half full. Would have been a problem if the place was full.
The place is very noisy and the atmosphere was energetic. Good for young kids who make a lot of noise.
Food was excellent and the waitress took good care of us. The Kalamari was really good and the Salmon souvlaki was tasty eventhough I don't like fish.
Definitely will return and recommend.
my favourite place for greek food. their tzatsiki is to die for and i love their chicken souvlaki platters served with rice pilaf, potato, and greek salad. If you like calamari, you will LOVE it from here! the calamari dinner comes with a very generous serving of calamari with rice and greek salad and of course tzatsiki. They have some nice wine offerings as well as beer and other beverages. Good spot for a cozy meal with a friend or two or they also can accommodate large parties.
Overall it was very good~ they have their own private log of parking. Only we found out that the food was little bit salty. But maybe it was just us doesn't use to Greek food. However it was a great experience being there.
It has been a while since our last visit. we made a last-minute reservation thru OpenTable. Food was still tasty, though a little different from before. Service was so slow... we only went for dessert "ekmek"
