Had an absolute amazing time here. We were from out-of-town, in Whitby for an event, we checked the reviews and decided to try it. Was not disappointed far better than expectations, the owner was amazing and so was all of his staff, very personable and definitely earned our respect and 5 stars... More...

Truly under rated. 5 star across the board. Price, service, hospitality and atmosphere. The staff was great and food was even better. I think what topped it off was the amazing service from the manager and or owner. Took such pride in greeting EVERYONE that came through the doors. He was amazing to chat with and made sure everyone’s experience was top notch. It’s been a while since I experienced a Resturant like this. Thank you to the owners, staff and cooks for a wonderful experienceI would recommend this place to all. More...

We celebrated my Mom's 75th Birthday here today and it was awesome. Tom and his staff made this day very memorable for my mom.The food was amazing, Everything from the fresh feta and the dressing in the salad, to the lamb that melted in your mouth, the salmon was outstanding, the gyro was perfect and the rice/potatoes were perfectly seasoned. Hands down the best Greek restaurant in or around Durham. Tom and his staff were amazing. Tom, we thank you so much for treating us like family as I'm sure you treat all your customers and look forward to eating their again. The Miniaci Family. More...

Really good food, decently priced. I've never felt it was a place to linger after eating. Always busy and not a lot of space between tables

The Greek Tycoon has the best Greek food in the GTA. We love the souvlaki, tycoon chicken, roast lamb and exohico. The cheese saganaki is an awesome appetizer, especially if you are dining in because of the way it is served! The service here is excellent and the staff definitely make you feel like family. Highly recommend this place - you will definitely be glad you discovered this gem in Whitby. More...

There is absolutely no better place for Greek food anywhere around here. Constantly use their take out service. And it’s fast, efficient and omg the food is so delicious. Have dined in as well, with my family, they are very welcoming and family friendly. The food portions are massive. Don’t be dissuaded from the prices. It is well worth it. There will be leftovers More...

Wow... after many years of living in the area, I only recently visited Greek Tycoon for the first time. What a place! Food was superb... I ordered the chicken souvlaki and it tasted just like it does in Greece! Great atmosphere and service too. You can’t beat a good family restaurant these days! More...

So happy that we found this little gem last night. The food was amazing. Especially the sauce on my Tycoon Chicken. My husband is still talking about how flaky and delicious his Exohico was.

There is fantastic greek food here! The restaurant carries the Greece theme inside as well. The amount of food you get for the price is great. The staff are super friendly and nice.

The food is amazing. One of the best Greek restaurants I've been to. I always get my usual souvlaki, or gyro meals, but once I was there I saw someone order this lamb pastry thing, it looked amazing. I asked them what it was and ordered it the next time I went. It was the best thing I've ever had at any Greek restaurant. Even my leftovers tasted amazing the next day. Definitely recommend coming to this place. Even if it's not the closest Greek restaurant to you, it would be worth the longer drive. More...

Hands down one of the BEST restaurants in Durham Region. My family has been dining here for decades and this place has never disappointed. The staff is very friendly and we are never left waiting for service at our table. The food tastes authentic and is brought promptly. Apps are fantastic too. Whether you are planning a dinner for two, booking a large party or ordering takeout, I highly recommend Greek Tycoon! More...

I had an amazing experience here. It felt like I was in Greece as the restaurant had white and blue theme with artifacts from Greece. The food was very delicious and the customer service was excellent. The owner was nice enough to serve us and crack jokes to make us all laugh. If you want to feel like you're having lunch or dinner in Greece, you must visit this place for sure. I am highly impressed. More...

John and his team catered a dinner party for 6 of our friends on Saturday night. The food was delicious, all our guests were from out of town and they were thoroughly impressed with everything, in particular the fish, moussaka and potatoes. Everything was so scrumptious, the servings were plentiful, the food was delivered and arrived hot and on time. I can't thank John enough for helping make my party a success and taking away the stress of making dinner for 8!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Joanne Botticella More...

This restaurant is well-organized. I have never had a problem with the service and my takeout orders are always served promptly. The food is absolutely mouth-watering. The rice is buttery, the potatoes have a hint of lemon juice and the starter salad is very filling. Always a solid option when craving Greek food - or any food, really - in the Durham region.

We happened upon this gem during a basketball tournament weekend. It is hard to find healthy food in cities you are not familiar with. We were greeted warmly and had great meal service throughout.

I went here with no expectations. It was nice little restaurant. Cozy but very loud. Parking in that plaza isn't the best, so plan ahead. The food was really good. I got a pork souvlaki dinner. Was done very well. If you're looking for good Greek food , if recommend this place. More...

Phenomenal food, incredibly friendly staff who know how to make you feel welcome and at home. The gyros platter is delicious, the salad that's served with it is outstanding as is the pita. Generous portions for such a fair price. Beautiful  atmosphere with pleasant Greek music, great for a date or a family dinner. I highly recommend this restaurant. More...

I have been meaning to review this place as I had posted the yummy pics of my steak and potatoes over 3 years ago...but it's now or never.The Greek Tycoon is a very snazzy restaurant with low, ambient lighting (except for the occasional burst of flame and sudden heat with 'Opa!' being recited as the saganaki was being lit). Nevertheless, I always order the steak and potatoes even to this day because the steak is juicy and I love Greek style potatoes. The salad is pretty good and they give you fresh baked bread while waiting for your meal.Overall, the Greek Tycoon is one of my favourites in Durham. More...

Drove by this little restaurant for many years, finally decided to give it a try and was very pleasantly surprised!  A very cute little family restaurant, the small space is used to seat many tables but not too close that you don't fell like you are dining with strangers.  The food is very good, fresh and made with care.  I will definately come back and recommend to all who want a nice dinning experience.

The Greek Tycoon in Whitby is our favourite restaurant.  The food is great, the service is great, the atmosphere is friendly, and we always feel welcome and appreciated.  It is a family run restaurant with Tom leading the way, welcoming guests and checking on customers through their meals.  Staff are friendly, professional and attentive.  Guests are treated like family.  Food is served hot and portions are large - you will not go away hungry and you may take home some for dinner the next day.  Salad is included with the entrees. We always recommend this restaurant to friends.  The restaurant is often quite busy, so reservations are good idea.  They also have a lot of take-out customers - this is very popular as well.

We had to wait 20  mins for a table on a busy Saturday night, but it was worth it! As previous reviewers have mentioned, they definitely treat you like family. They also went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience and made substitutions for my food allergies. We will be regular customers for sure! More...

GReat little Resturant.  DO not judge a book by its cover or in this case the outside of the place.  Located in a strip mall when you walk in top the place it is well decorated, quaint a lot of couples having dinner  here.   I was alone traveling on business but felt very comfortable as the staff here was very attentive.THe foods is very good and reasonably priced.  I had the Greek Salad, Spanikopia and a piece of Baklava.   All were something I would come back for.  I also saw a few other dishes go by and they looked mighty tasty as well.    I will definitely come back here when in Whitby More...

This place is top notch. It's a family run restaurant with authentic Greek food and atmosphere. All the staff are amazing including often being sat by the owner at the door. Highly recommend a reservation on weekends or busy nights as it is a smaller intimate location. However they do their best to get you seated or you can always order take out. More...

Good authentic Greek food, good portion and food was tasty.Was in the area and found this plc on Yelp. Alot of ppl getting take out and 90% full at the dining area.  Saw an empty table, manager passed by obviously saw us but no acknowledgement and didn't greet us at all. A group of 4 walked in and immediately being seated. At that moment I kinda pissoff. To be fair our table server was very attentive. The manager  - the only one who wear tie (maybe owner) not so friendly at all. More...

Great quality food at great quality prices! My family orders take out from this location rather often and I can say with confidence that you're really getting what you paid for. I highly recommend the chicken skewers, as they are a respectable size and come with a whole ton of other things as well, such as a whole lot of rice and and really good tangy potatoes. More...

My boyfriend and I started going to the Greek Tycoon 4 years ago as it is walking distance from our home. I'd always been a loyal customer to Astoria on the Danforth but the drive from Whitby for dinner got to be a bit far.  We now order take out at least 3 times a month and sit in once a month.  I brought a group of 15 for my birthday a few years back and now they are all frequent eaters at the restaurant.  The  tzatziki is delicious.

Tucked away in South Whitby lies the Greek Tycoon. A restaurant with a family atmosphere and family sized portions. A classic décor leads to classic Greek dishes and new favourites. I've been here a few times and I keep going back to try something new. The best part is that you really can't go wrong. The only advice I can give is to stick to Greek food; it's what they do best.  We all know and love Souvlaki and it's damn good. This time I tried the Pasta Medallions. It was ok. I wouldn't try it again. The sauce and pasta was plain. There's so many choices on the menu, I wished I had picked a Greek dish. My favourite is either the Tycoon Chicken(HUGE portion) or the Chicken Shishkebob(juiciest chicken on the planet). Most dishes come with rice, potatoes and mixed veggies.My mom ordered the Exohico. It's HUGE. She ate until she couldn't eat anymore and it looked like she hadn't touched it. Under the phyllo crust, lay seasoned lamb and a slew of roasted vegetables. The leftovers lasted 3 meals!!  Service is always good. The food is always good. Prices are great. Can't wait to go back again! More...

What a gem this place is. And of course, we got there serendipitously.So, there I was, leaving the office after a long day of whatever it is I supposedly do, and I get a text "Why is there no good Greek food near us?" The wife and I were welcoming a house guest who's just moved to the area from Nova Scotia, and she wanted to go somewhere nice, and Greek seemed to be what she wanted.So I replied that there is, though I haven't been to the place yet, but not far from where we live in Oshawa sits a place called Chef Tommy's, and it has a pretty good pack of reviews on Yelp. So we decided to go there, not realizing they're closed on Mondays. So, we head a little further afield to the Greek Tycoon.And it was a great choice. Service was friendly, the menu had lots of options, and the food was amazing. Let me try explaining. First, there was sort of a tag-team of servers, the first took our order including for a half-litre of wine, and I don't know if he communicated it telepathically, but it seemed like the wine arrived almost immediately. Nothing fancy, just the house red, but it was a great pair with my roast lamb.Next out was some nice warm bread and a couple of dips we ordered, hummous and Ktisomething - I can't remember the name of it, feta cheese and peppers basically.Follow that a good size Greek salad and before long the mains arrived. Now, here's the thing. The prices looked comparable to a higher end place on the Danforth, but when the food came, the portions were enormous. So enormous in fact that we all have another meal of out them. So basically, I'm eating roast lamb again for dinner with all the accompaniment, and that suits me fine.We even got a shot of ouzo on the house for the holidays, a nice finishing touch.Awkward moment when we left though, our guest was generous enough to pick up the tab, and paid with debit. A while later as we finished our wine and conversation, an older guy we hadn't seen, perhaps the Tycoon himself, came to the table, tasked with the embarrassing job of asking if my friend has made a mistake with the tip, as it was only $0.20! Clearly, that was wrong and we fixed it up right away, laughs and red faces following.So glad that I don't have to trek to the Danforth for a ridiculous Greek meal. More...

Greek Tycoon is the real deal! It's independently owned by a Greek family and the food is authentic. We've been eating there a couple of times a month for the past 10 years and everything is always tasty, hot and good quality. The prices are very reasonable making it easy to go more often!  The service is friendly and welcoming. When we want Greek food, we'd never think of going to one of those chains, Greek Tycoon if ALWAYS our first thought. Check it out at:  greektycoonwhitby.com More...
