We went to Yamas on a Tuesday night and a few tables were occupied, along with a very large and rowdy university party. The service was pleasant and the food good. We had souvlakis and salmon- that not being an expected entree but delicious otherwise. Would recommend for people looking for a traditional Greek meal....we were full afterwards, which is... More

Years after having given up on Yamas for the, then, unsatisfactory quality of the overall experience, we (mature couple) decided to chance another visit to see if it had changed for the better. Indeed, the experience was quite pleasant. The food was very good, the server outstanding in ensuring that one of our meals was completely free of canola oil... More

Although not a new restaurant for us, this Greek restaurant remains consistent with good food, great service complete with belly dancer. My friend and I shared an Appie platter, added the fantastic Greek ribs and Greek salad. Very satisfying. This is a large restaurant styled to make you feel like you are in an eating place in its home country.... More

It was....okay. Felt nickel and dined...$1.50 here $2.50 there for items that were offered and we just assumed they were included because they weren't on the menu. The roast potatoes were bland, the souvlaki kinda tasteless and the spanakopita was no better than the frozen kind you'd get in the frozen food section of your grocery store.

I had the fettucinni with chicken and tomato basil. also very good. Not the best l have had but good enough. We were brought a heated loaf of... More

On our first night in Kelowna we wandered around downtown looking at numerous restaurants before deciding on Yamas Greek Restaurant. It is not particularly attractive from the outside but is reasonably nice inside. We started with the Humous and pita (more like naan bread) which was fairly good but heavy on the garlic. We ordered Mousaka and a chicken and... More

I recently ate at Yamas, with a group and made a selection from a limited festive menu. Several people ordered Tzatziki and Pita as a appetizer. Choice of Greek or Caesar Salad. Chicken on skewers with generous servings of rice pilaf and roast potatoes. When you look at the whole menu, it is mostly neutral in color with the exception... More

Our favourite Greek restaurant in Kelowna. Have been regular customers for over 15 years. Never disappointed, large portions provide lunch for the next day. Change it up to try different dishes, all good. Greek music and belly dancer on the weekends for entertainment.
