Really good Greek food!

Had dinner with 6 people. Food and service were great. Very good value for your money.Menu is typical Greek fare, but the specials were nicely put together.

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

When you want a great fix for Greek food this is always our favourite pick. The platters are so good to share with a couple or family. The souvlaki is always good and the Greek salad is fresh and delicious every time. Good service, food and atmosphere at Yamas and never disappoints. Would recommend and bring friends and visitors here.

This was one of our best meals in Kelowna. We had 5 in our party and ordered two different platters. Tons of food and all very delicious. The lamb, chicken, beef, were all good. Greek salads as well as potatoes, rice were all excellent. Service wasn't rushed and they did a great job.

The best Greek Salad I have ever had and I think will ever have. I love Greek Salad and try as I may I cannot find one like theirs. I have tried to duplicate at home but never works out. They told me what they use but I think they have left something out as I cannot get it. Ha... More

Exquisite and authentic Greek food served with care and (dare I say it?) love! The waitress, Shayna, was perfect as well. She gave us our space to enjoy a split of wine and ponder over Yamas' delightful and well-rounded menu and yet was timely in checking in with us and offering her thoughts and suggestions. At Shayna's suggestion we ordered... More

My husband and I came to Yamas midweek. It was busy enough but we got a table right away. Our server was very friendly and advised us on the drink and food specials. We shared the Starter Platter and the Lamb Souvlaki. The spanakopita, dolmades, and calamari were excellent. The lamb was to die for, totally yummy. The service was... More

I WAS pleasantly surprised. Went for an early saturday nite supper, heard the drink and dinner special and that was that! The only surprise we had, was finding the extra cost for flaming the saganaki, and the pita bread. Portions were big, and seeing as i was fighting a cold and lack of appetite, i think i pretty much killed... More

Order off the menu or serve yourself from the smorgasbord of salads, pasta, chicken and a variety of other hot foods.
