Their breakfast is gorgeous - top quality ingredients used and it shows. Plus it's lovely to sit outside in the sun and watch the world go by while one eats breakfast. Their Thai menu is gorgeous and I highly recommend their delicious soup.

Unprepossessing frontage but don't let this put you off. The food is good and freshly prepared and the service is friendly and helpful. All choices from the menu come with the option of meat, fish or tofu and the food is spicy without being overpowering. This is more of a cafe style eatery than a restaurant and they do not... More

Arrived for a meal with friends, having booked many weeks ago. Initial despair when told there wasn't a table, but hastily resolved and after a short wait we were seated - phew!! The place was very much alive and the atmosphere was brilliant (a large table was having a birthday celebration) though I reckon even without the party it would... More

My girlfriend booked Yama's as a birthday surprise and I was certainly not disappointed. For a party of nine I was impressed at the speed of service and attentiveness of the staff. Everyone loved their food and my brother reckoned that it was the best Thai food he'd experienced outside of Thailand. Give Yama's a try, you won't regret it!

The deliciously fresh tasting Thai food combined with the genuine warmth of the owner Terry made our dining experience extremely pleasurable. I can't recommend it highly enough and I'm looking forward to trying out the wine bar when it opens.

A gem of a Thai restaurant/Cafe Margate. Lovely food cooked in front of you by a magician of a chef in a small cluttered kitchen in a high street café. Full of character and has established a firm customer base in the area and beyond. We travelled from Whitstable for an early evening meal. If you are looking for corporate... More

We love Thai food and were really impressed by Yama's. We were sat right by the "kitchen" (a couple of hobs behind a cafe counter!) and watched in amazement as the single chef served food to the whole restaurant without breaking a sweat! The owner is great fun and very chatty. Our food was absolutely delicious - slightly milder than... More

I went in a big group, very small in there so I would say you would need to book in advance but food was amazing! Take your own wine for a bargain night out.
