We always try and visit Yamas at least twice a year, the menu has not changed for many years I don't think, but the quality of food is superb. You are guaranteed a big welcome by the owner - there is just a nice vibe about the place It is a small restaurant and we rocked up about 7:30 with... More

I've been to Yamas a few times now (as a couple, with a group of friends and with a large group of 25 for a birthday meal) and I'm happy to keep going back because the food is fresh and tasty and the staff are friendly and attentive. On this occasion I was visiting with my husband. We were seated... More

While this may not be the best or most innovative tapas restaurant i have eaten in, there is something about it i really enjoy. The experience gets spoiled a little when it is busy with big parties, but otherwise the food is good, the service friendly and you always feel like they are happy you are there. (which sounds simple... More

A very friendly Greek (fusion) restaurant. We had the fish mezzeh to share and it was more than sufficient for two. We enjoyed every course (as they were brought in one by one) but could not manage to eat the last one- which was the best, together with the fish platter. Very reasonable prices and quick service. Well worth a... More

Went here on the weekend for lunch and it was super busy. We went at 2 but had to come back at 3 before we could actually get a table. It was definitely worth the wait. The food was really great and the lunch menu has enough choice I would recommend the Houmous for sure and the chorizo (but I... More

I was in Nottigham for work and tried Yamas purely on trip advisor reviews. I'm really glad that I did as the food was excellent and the atmosphere was just what you need after a day of travel - relaxed and friendly. We tried a huge selection from the menu and weren't disappointed with anything. Especially loved the calamari and... More

On reading great reviews booked this last minute for pre concert meal. We love Greek food and have Greek Cypriot family so were very impressed with the authentic tasting home cooked food. Its really good value, although we ordered too much as we wanted all our favourites. Great service and lovely meal.

Tucked down a little side street, a gorgeous setting with very friendly and accommodating staff the food was plentiful and delicious! We opted for a special meze for two and even my husband couldn't finish it off! Every dish was a pleasure!
