I've seen the advertised curry specials outside the restaurant many times, so today decided to give them a try. I had the shrimp curry with rice, naan bread and a salad, and my partner had chicken curry, rice, naan bread and a Greek salad. The food was very good, tasty, nicely presented, and the prices excellent. Service was also very... More

We just came back from having an awesome Greek meal. We had 3 souvlaki's and a lamb curry. My step-mom is a Greek and said that was great Greek food. The owner came out to see how everything was and make sure we were enjoying or time at the restaurant. We'll definitely be back next time we're in Nanaimo.

Three of us had the calamari dinner which was very good - tender crisp calamari and lovely Greek salad - also came with rice which we opted to not have and half a potato -... More

We ordered the Greek dinner for two. It fed three of us for two days! It costs $50 and it is so worth every penny!

The prices are very reasonable, and the food is really great! They have Greek food, Italian, and even some Indian curries. It's a nice casual and relaxed atmosphere, and the wait staff is friendly. It wasn't busy when we went on Sunday night, so our food was ready very fast. The best dish was a chicken pasta with Alfredo sauce.... More

Had our Anniversary Dinner here yesterday and the food is always fabulous. My husband's butter chicken dinner was excellent and my lamb dinner was just perfectly done. The meat is tender, the rice is perfect and love the feta on the greek salad. Servers are friendly and always there when you need them. We also tried a cheese appetizer this... More

A lovely family restaurant! Really enjoy talking to the waitresses every time we come in as they are always very genuinely friendly and kind. There's so much value in being treated like a person rather than just a customer. We highly recommend the vegetable curry, such good flavours! The saganaki (pan-fried sheep cheese in lemon) appetizer was very pleasing as... More

Me and my family came to Alexandra's for the first time and it was delicious! All the food was very fresh and well made. I had the souvlaki and it was the best meal I've had in a long time.
