Authentic food

First time here, would definitely go again. The flavours were so authentic and tasty. We had the meat platter to share, there was so much food. The tzatziki dip is homemade and the best I've tasted. the lamb and halloumi is well worth tasting. They have gluten free pittas too. Around £20 each... read more

Whether it's a light lunch or the full evening meze the food is great as is the atmosphere. The staff are great, especially the owner who provides that personal touch.

Never fails to please. The food is full of flavour, from the dips we had to start with, to the meze dishes that followed. The menu has a very good selection of meat, fish and veggie dishes. I can highly recommend the kleftiko, slow cooked lamb on the bone, which was so succulent. The spanakopita is also very good, along... More

Everything was very good. Only comment I would say wasn't so good. We were on the first floor which was fine but you then you have two flights of stairs to go down to the ladies. Not so good in your high heels and after a few drinks!!! However, that is minor as the restaurant is very good.

Lovely authentic food . Warm welcome and food was great, we shard six meze dishes with bread and olives. Yamas very busy it was a Saturday lunch time and this added to the atmosphere. Cannot wait to go again when we are in Nottingham .

Excellent range of tapas that were mostly Greek with some Spanish too. Range across seafood, meat and vegetarian. Although we didn't have it , the sharing platters looked huge that we saw having between two people. Would recommend for having a different experience

The food here was great and we were served by an excellent polish waiter who was very friendly and attentive. With the food being so good, it's a shame that the interior of the place didn't reflect the quality of the food or service. Nonetheless I would recommend the food here!

Been to Yamas twice now and both times we have really enjoyed our meal. The vegetarian options are plentiful but don't make the mistake of filling up on first course like we did or you won't manage your mains!! Would like a wider selection of drinks perhaps but other than that it's great!

Our first visit here but definitely won't be our last! We chose from the amazing value lunchtime menu and were served fresh, delicious and great portions of meze. Very tasty and with lots of choice, there's something to suit every palate. With helpful, efficient and polite staff, it's little wonder this place is so popular with returning customers.

Visited Yamas with group of girlfriends up from Reading area. Wish we lived nearer to this fab restaurant. Quality, choice and great value for money. I had vegetarian meze at £17.50 which was as much as I could eat and very tasty. Service very friendly and staff delivered food at just the right pace so you didn't have to wait... More
