Everything on the Yama's platter was fresh, and top notch, with authentic Greek flavours, and beautifully presented. The restaurant is much more appealing since it is remodelled in a more neutral color. It is clean, and crisp looking, with comfortable seating. We are always happy when we visit here, but think that last night's dinner was the best yet. I... More

We ordered a platter of food for delivery. I explained this was for 6 people and when it was delivered the following happened: 1) It was TINY. Enough for max two people 2) Total costs came to almost $100 so it was astronomically expensive 3) I called to enquire about whether this was a mistake and was pretty much berated... More

Yamas is a nice place with great service and hot fresh food. I had the Chicken souvlaki with potatoes and greek salad (hold the rice). The flavours were really good and there was a generous amount of feta and olives on the salad. My husband had the Greek ribs and there was a generous portion of ribs (although he said... More

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.
