The staff is very friendly. If you go in the right time, you can even see dancers around. The food is good and portion can be big. The major drawback is wait for the food (not table) is tooooooo long. Their explanation was too many big tables and the kitchen has to wait for every dishes for one table before... More

Had dinner at Yamas with friends last Friday. The calamari is a must. I had my usual roast lamb and it was fall apart tender, came with Greek salad, rice and potatoes. My friends had the ribs and steak and all were very satisfied. Bring an appetite, portions are large and prices are reasonable. Service was excellent.

My family all adults (half seniors) had a birthday celebration at this restaurant on February 5, 2015. All seemed to enjoy their 3 course dinner as part of the OK Wine & Dine event being held. I found my lamb had a somewhat "gamey" taste perhaps due to the amount of fat on it. Otherwise all was excellent. Some said... More

Everything on the Yama's platter was fresh, and top notch, with authentic Greek flavours, and beautifully presented. The restaurant is much more appealing since it is remodelled in a more neutral color. It is clean, and crisp looking, with comfortable seating. We are always happy when we visit here, but think that last night's dinner was the best yet. I... More

We ordered a platter of food for delivery. I explained this was for 6 people and when it was delivered the following happened: 1) It was TINY. Enough for max two people 2) Total costs came to almost $100 so it was astronomically expensive 3) I called to enquire about whether this was a mistake and was pretty much berated... More

Yamas is a nice place with great service and hot fresh food. I had the Chicken souvlaki with potatoes and greek salad (hold the rice). The flavours were really good and there was a generous amount of feta and olives on the salad. My husband had the Greek ribs and there was a generous portion of ribs (although he said... More
