If you love really good Greek food that is luke warm and cold then this is the place for you. Shared the Greek platter for two with my wife. Salad to start was very fresh and good. The platter came with cold moussaka and luke warm spanakopita, rice and Greek potatoes. Chicken souvlaki was good, fresh and warm though! Service... More

I can't say enough good things about this place. Although the ownership has changed hands, they have maintained their cooks and staff. The food is always good and the service is excellent. I have taken many friends and family here over the last 25 years and it has always been a hit. The saganaki and hummous are the best!

Well spiced, with good flavours. Everything was tasty and had lots of flavour. Prices very fair for the quality and service. Had the souvlaki dinner, chicken... More

I had the chicken souvlakia and my husband had the lunch special of lamb chops. It was so fantastic that we're going to eat here at least once more while we're visiting Vancouver!!!

We were staying near Davie Street and came upon Takis Taverna by chance. Lucky for us! It was the best Greek food I have had. The calamari was divine and so was my husband's souvlaki. The service was great and it was good value. Would totally recommend eating there

You may walk right past Taki's on your way to Stepho's, a 'famous' greek restaurant on Davie Street. But if you know good food and great service, you'll stop at Taki's. I used to live in the West End of Vancouver, and Taki's was my favorite Greek restaurant. The food is fast and hot, delicious and huge servings! The service... More

Besides how great the food and service are, the best thing about this place is that there is usually no line up. Not sure why. We went for dinner at 5:30 on a Saturday night and got a table right away. Excellent service, excellent food. And, great value. Best kept secret of the West End!

Neighbourhood Profile
Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver. It is the only like area in the world to have a permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant. By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines, humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside many of the hip and trendy bars and dance halls. The area is diverse and welcoming, and its supportive community makes for a tight-knit group of independent and creative shops.
