Went on a Tuesday evening after work with a few friends. Food was delicious and service was prompt. Very easy to over order though as meze portions are quite generous. Place had a vibrant atmosphere and staff were friendly. Will definitely be returning.

We visited Yamas a couple of weeks ago and it was lovely, between me and my partner and our 2 children (6+14) we ordered 3 meze's. This was more than enough food and we were glad we hadnt ordered 4. The food was perfect with a good variety from pittas and dips to meaty dishes. The fish and prawns were... More

First time visitor, we went for a pre - theatre meal. I forgot my glasses but no problem as they had some spare readers and problem solved. We're not good at non traditional menus but they guided us through the choices and the food was good and arrived in good time to get us to the theatre. It seeems to... More

4 of us went for a meal on Easter Sunday. Ordered a cheese platter to start and then a selection of other dishes for mains. Drinks were quite expensive, £5.50 for a large Mythos beer however it went down well. Really lovely food, tasty and the staff were really friendly. Would recommend.

As a family we have been visiting Yamas since it first opened. As a fan of Greek holidays and the food, we love to be able to experience this in our own city. However, for us this superb little place has really come into its own since our daughter was diagnosed as coeliac around four years ago. She is now... More

Thought we would try this place out due to the consistently high reviews on here. The restaurant itself is a bit smaller than I was expecting with nondescript decor. Staff were friendly and there was an extensive tapas menu including Greek, Spanish and even a cheeky French dauphinoise potatoes dish crept in. We had the prawns with lemon and garlic,... More
