Great Greek

Really good Greek dinner with friends last night. The chicken souvlaki was very tasty and the extra prawns were large and very good. I would definitely eat here again.

Warmly greeted, helpful staff to determine which wine to order, I make it a point to visit this restaurant each time I am in Kelowna. Amazingly talented belly dancer every Saturday night! The potatoes are sinfully delicious, the ekmek and baklava are some of the best I've ever had, and the lamb chop meal literally melted in my mouth. Over... More

Food was good. First time ever having spanakopita... ended up enjoying it a lot! the potatoes, rice and tzatziki were also all delicious. No pita bread though.. that was upsetting. The service we got from a waitress was far from friendly. No thank-yous or have a good night. Me and my friends (4 single 21 year old ladies) all had... More

We had a great time at Yamas. The evening we were there, there was no waiting, and we were given a table right away. The place is quite large, and roomy and the staff that we had the opportunity to meet were all very nice, fun to talk to, and quite quick in their service. We opted for a dinner... More

We were out with some friends who are new to the Okanagan. My hubby suggested that we go to Yamas as we did have such a good experience the last time we were there. We finally arrived and it was busy! The wait time for a table was under a minute. We were promptly greeted by our waitress, there was... More

The service was friendly and efficient - excellent! The ambiance artful and soothing. The food? Delectable. Calamari tender. House Greek wine delicious. All the dishes were flavourful. We would absolutely return here!

Yamas has always been my go-to for take out but this time I tried it on for dinner. The server recognized by name even though I wasn't dressed for business. She was spot on for my every need. When my roast lamb arrived it was fantastic, I'd definitely order it again. Over time I've tried pretty much everything on the... More

Yamas Greek Restaurant has been operating in Kelowna for many years. This speaks well to their excellent cuisine and service. My favourite dish are the rib dinners, served with rice, potatoes and greek salad. The ribs are to die for. Best of Kelowna! Salads are great also. Large portions for the hungry one. Their special greek platters for two are... More

Excellent Greek food at good prices. For appetizer, my son really liked the fried cheese and we had the Dolmathes. The staff were personable and attentive without being over the top annoying. Our waitress made sure we had what we needed and was very knowledgeable about the menu. We come back here often.

We sampled a bit ot the dishes ordered by the others at the table as well as sharing appetizers in the Greek trradition. The rack of lamb was excellent cooked medium rare. The other dishes were not bad but not exceptional. The wine iist is very limited but has some reasonable selections at a fair price. The Ekmec dessert was... More
