Can't fault the food, cooked in front of you using fresh ingredients. The only problem is how small this place is, I'm talking small cafe size with about 5/6 tables so when it's busy its cramped with no room to move! This place is in need of a complete revamp as its very dated and abit clogged. Apart from that... More

It's best Thai restaurant I've been in the UK. It's very tasty and they use very fresh ingredients. The price is reasonable. I will definitely go back there again!

Okay so it isn't luxury and maybe what you wouldn't book it for your special day, but what Yama's does offer is an excellent variety of delicious and authentic Thai food at a great price... so good, you needn't bother cooking dinner some nights, just pop up to y Yama's :)

Tucked away this cafe by day offers normal English cafe Faye but excitingly in the evening it then offers Thai cuisine cooked by an authentic chef.Bring your own drink this was very busy as the cafe is only small but filled with respectable customers who also enjoy good Thai food.

I travelled extensively in Thailand so I can call myself an expert of thai cuisine. Both the classic and the esperimental dishes are tasty and good. This is my best choice when driving around I always go there. Service is spotless and the staff does its job so well.

Went here on a busy Saturday night. Service was friendly, food was great - really fresh veg in our dishes, and great value at about £35-40 for 3 people - prawn crackers to nibble, mains with rice, a soft drink each and two coffees. It's pretty cosy as the cafe is very small, but the atmosphere is nice. Would definitely... More
