Very good family owned restaurant. Warm bread and dipping sauce provided. Most plates include a green salad. Simply good food at a great price
I've been to Mivan several times and love it each time. It's a comfortable 'joint', which is relaxing, good service and very good food. It's a go-to in Burlingame for an everyday dinner spot.
Nice, quiet atmosphere; excellent food; kind servers. We met an out-of-town cousin for dinner after work and Mivan was the perfect setting.
I was really looking forward to the meal. I love Mediterranean food. But I was very disappointed. Not a lot of flavor in anything that I had. Won’t be going back.
Mivan is a local treasure, a family-owned Mediterranean eatery with a delicious menu. I highly recommend the Lamb Kavurma, the salmon, and there chicken kebabs.
always freshly prepared meals. nice family owned business. its our go to place.
Very good food. The lamb chops were very tender and the kabobs were excellent. Small and cozy place.
this is our go too restaurant. Food is always fresh, like home cooking except way better I am not doing the work. chicken kebab, kofta, salad, rice, warm bread, so yummy and still so reasonable. we love the family and have been coming here since they opened
Low key, but quaint ambiance, excellent service, and clean, unmuddied tastes for a very good meal. My husband had the combo meat plate and I had the Lamb Saute. We enjoyed both, but especially the rice, oddly enough. It was very flavorful and went with our dishes very well. We were there early on a Sunday afternoon after an afternoon Symphony matinee and will come back. Broadway Avenue comes through again!
Food is delicious! Salads would be better with other kinds of lettuce besides iceberg - but all tasted fantastic!!
wonderful family owned restaurant. all the food is made fresh. hot bread. its our favorite neighborhood restaurant.
consistently good food. Everything is made fresh when you come in. I love the grilled chicken shish kebab and the tilapia. they both come with rice and salad and freshly baked bread. My husband gets the kofte and has had the shrimp saute, both very good. Very nice family run restaurant. Its definitely our go to place.
Good & service was great. Simple decor. Clean. Quick. And very fairly priced.
Food quality is great, it easy to find meat for any taste, they have beef, lamb, chicken, fish, shrimps. Very good grilled vegetables, delicious rice. Music is very quiet. The place is small. They have tall chairs for children.
We went to Mivan actually twice in one week with friends and family and it was delicious!
It is more Turkish then Greek which is great since we are Greek and its nice to taste other things. I ordered the Kufte both times and it was really good, comes with rice and a tasty salad. My husband and kids had the Souvlaki and also enjoyed it. We really enjoyed the Hummus with the warm bread that is given to you. I couldn't get my kids to stop eating it!
This is our new place to eat in Burlingame!
The corkage fee was reasonable. The food was spot on. From what I ordered the chicken was char grilled and juicy, not overcooked. The babaganoush was awesome.
Funny anecdote, someone recommended this place to me but complained about the lousy service. I joked back "well, that's how you know it's the authentic greek experience."
When I went there the service was prompt. They did a great job all around.
We were in Burlingame for a conference. We looked in OT & found this gem. Family owned & operated, friendly service & great food. Thank you!
A cozy neighborhood gem! The family that owns the place are kind and attentive! The food is fresh & tasty! This is a small place so call ahead if you're bringing a big group. If you're all friends and/or family, I recommend ordering a variety and just sharing. Didn't have sweets because didn't have room!
Great greece food, amazing taste. Cozy place, several tables. Music play not loud and it is a little bit classical, not for dance. Personal is friendly, everything is really fast. Nice place for cold winter's evening.
always fresh delicious meals. nice family owned business
A great surprise. Our first time at this restaurant and the food was amazing. Can't wait to go back.
this is our favorite go to restaurant, food is always good!! Warm bread, and a salad with most plates. Family owned, very nice. You will enjoy
Great food and service in a relaxing atmosphere.
Family owned business very nice food always prepared fresh!!!
The slowest service we have ever experienced. There was only one person waiting on 9 tables. We were there over 1/2 hour before we got anything to drink. Food arrived 70 minutes after we sat down to a completely empty table. The kebabs were good but not worth the wait. Would not go back.
Everyone enjoyed their meal with the exception of my husband. He ordered the beef and meat was tough. Everyone else ordered lamb or chicken and said it was good. Mostly enjoyed their tiramisu. It's the best I have ever tested. Price is good for the portions. It's a very small place so would not recommend a party larger than 6. Would go back but will skip the beef this time around.
Consistently great food and prices. Wonderful family owned business. We like so many of the things on the menu its hard to pick
We always enjoy this restaurant . We had the tilapia, the lofted, chicken and shrimp all good
disappointed with spanakopita, filling was great , dough tasted like it was done on a George foreman grill
Although the lamb chops were expensive they were excellent, meaty, lean and cooked perfectly.
we always enjoy everything here and it is always prepared right then. Warm bread and very nice family owned business
It's consistently delicious, fresh, friendly! It's a nice spot for discussion; quiet and cozy. The food is flavorful and colorful.
Restaurant is clearly a family-run operation. Great value.
Indifferent service, soggy Spanakopita and prices a bit high considering the quality and presentation of the food...
This was a decent place not too far off the Caltrain route and near SFO. Those are the two main reasons I choose this restaurant. It was nothing special but a good quiet place to go have a meal and glass of wine with a friend before I dropped her off at SFO.
Mivan is one of our go-to places. The eggplant dishes, the chicken kebab, lentil soup, and all the Mediterranean appetizers are some of our favorites. Pleasant service, food arrives promptly, nice presentation, never too hard to get a table. One thing to note: we always have to ask for the check. Don't stew and complain later -- just ask for it!
A clean casual environment where our party of 3 thoroughly enjoyed every plate. Every meal was well prepared and flavorful, swordfish done just perfectly, tender beef kebab and gyro steak and well seasoned fresh ingredients salad, complimented by our very attentive and wine knowledgeable server. We'll definitely visit again.
One of my favorite places for dinner. Have brought friends and family and I especially like the kunefe for dessert.
This is good Mediterranean food in a restaurant with a nice atmosphere and friendly prices. Thought it would be good for the restaurant my daughter paid the dinner bill after receiving her first paycheck. It's also a restaurant she can come to on her own and enjoy a nice dinner. She had the Eggplant vegetarian dinner and I had the Eggplant with lamb. Both were very good and we enjoyed our meal, the service, and the ambiance.
Nothing fancy, good food and portions. Kebab meat was a bit chewy but eggplant and lamb was excellent.
everything here is prepared fresh. Family owned business. nice people, good food and very reasonable prices. we eat here a few times a month.
