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

Of all the Greek restaurants in this region, this one is by far the best!! It is centrally located in Kelowna . A short walk along our beautiful waterfront/city park. You'll need a walk after dinner. Absolutely delicious, very generous portions, friendly service. Longtime family run business which takes great pride in consistently great food! We typically go for one... More

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.

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.
