Delicious, friendly and cheap!

We saw all the positive reviews for Yama's and decided to try it out this lunchtime. The food was great - we had Thai fish cakes and pork dim sum for starters, and mango curry and pad Thai for mains. All of the dishes were delicious. Also affordable, even if it is the day before payday... read more

We have been to Yama's 3 times now and each time the food and service has been excellent. We eat out regularly and have tried many Thai restaurants in the area. Yama's is by far superior. From the outside it looks like a cafe but never judge a book by the cover, as it is a hidden gem. Take your... More

It's a nice and cheap place. We have been there a couple of times, and we were happy all of them. The people is really nice and polite. The food is not expensive. And it is delicious. Maybe the portions could be bigger. But it's a nice place, one of the best in Thanet.

We went (2 adults, 2 kids) based on the TA reviewed alone and it totally lived up to our expectations. Really friendly, lovely staff and food was delicious.

When I arrived the first impression was its a cafe! It's quite small maybe 10 tables Bring your own drinks, I like this as you know what your drinking and all wines are over priced when dining out. But the Thai food was gorgeous the service was good. we had a shared starter and four other dishes and the bill... More

Charming welcome & service from the Thai owner, authentic, tasty, Thai fast food cooked right in front of you and Singha beer from the off-licence directly across the road. Yama's may be at "the wrong end" of Margate's rather unprepossessing High Street but don't let that put you off visiting this eclectic little café-style eatery that offers both Thai and... More

You have to try this place. It looks like a cafe and essentially that is what it is. You probably wouldn't think to base a night out here. Just goes to show how looks can be deceiving. The staff are lovely and the food is absolutely amazing. It is a little cramped and is always busy, so book early, but... More

We ate here a few months ago, I wad recommend by my sister and on a separate occasion my bestie. We dropped in on a Friday evening and it was packed, we were asked of we had a reservation which we didn't but luckily for us someone had just cancelled. The outside and interior are basic but if you can... More
