The adjectival order here - triangular wooden, is different to Greek. Is there a rule in Greek?

No, the same order is also accepted.

Does one sound more natural than the other? I would only really use "wooden triangular table" in English if there were multiple triangular tables, and I wanted to specify that I was referring specifically to the wooden one.

I agree that in English "triangular wooden table" is correct, hence the default translation here has different word orders in English and Greek.

The program wouldn't accept "dish"!
