Visited one evening with some girl friends. There are a few tables, quite close together and the atmosphere is rather like a cafe. However, the food is lovely. Cooked as you order, lots of choice and very reasonably priced.

Visited Yama's with my wife for lunch and we were not disappointed. Excellent starters and an even better main course following a good recommendation by our waitress. Would definitely return.

My friends and I booked Yamas on Saturday evening, with 18 of us we pretty much took up the whole place! It's small but friendly as they accommodated our party of carnivores, vegans, vegetarians and nut allergy sufferers really well. To cater for such a large crowd they offered a set meal of mixed starters, soup, curries, rice and noodles... More

Whilst a little on the small side and an aged decor detract slightly. This place cooks the best Thai food I've ever had. If you enjoy wagamamas this place is infinitely better. Go to yamas asap!

Fantastic meals cooked for very reasonable prices. Easily number 1 in Margate. I had 2 half meals as I wanted to ensure I was fully satisfied with the reviews I had read. The reviews are totally justified. Well done

My wife and I have been several times so that should tell all you need to know about the quality as well as being freshly prepared. I would not hesitate in recommending this place but you need to book at weekends
