Great food and service - make reservations

It's a very busy restaurant so make reservations so you don't have to wait. The night we went, it was very busy due to graduation and lots of families. We had very good service and the food was awesome.

Yamas Restaurant easily has the Best Greek food that Kelowna has to offer! It never disappoints. A little pricey but worth it. So delicious! Staff also seemed friendly!

Started off with a Caesar cocktail for starters. It was on special for under $5 and was perfectly seasoned. My partner and I had the Yamas Platter for two. It was excellent. Service and dining room was excellent. But, the women's bathroom had a horrific musty smell.

I have been here a few times already, and the food, service and atmosphere is always good. You can't go wrong here. If you like Greek food, then this is the place for you. Always delicious!

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
