Fantastic and friendly

I went here with my partner for Valentine's days and have to commend the staff for such a warm, friendly and brilliant atmosphere and service to match. The food was also delicious and so reasonably priced. Plus you can take your own drink with no corkage charge, wonderful! Well done Yama's!

Have eaten several times at Yama's and the food is amazing.The chef cooks it exactly as you like it and if you are unsure of any of the dishes will take time out to explain the dishes. Please bear in mind as stated in previous revues this is not a 5 star restaurant but a basic cafe serving 5 star... More

I visited here on a Saturday afternoon with a friend for her Birthday. The restaurant itself does not look much but the service and the food are AMAZING! We had mango curry with rice and a peppery basil stir fry (I can't remember the Thai names). It looks as though food is freshly cooked to order and things arrived quickly,... More

Wonderful food. So flavoursome and a true reminder of my backpacking days in Thailand. My experiences with other Thai restaurants in the uk, is that they tend to water down the curry almost; I find them so flavourless. Whereas Yama's tastes so good, it makes me fall in love with Thai food all over again, and without breaking the bank.... More

Yamas never fails to deliver a quality experience and the food is truly excellent. Never had a bad meal here in all the years I have been going. Terry is an excellent host and the waiting staff are delightful. They truly deserve to be the number one restaurant in Margate.

Took a few Thai food first timers on a Friday night,arrived a full 30 mins early(my mistake),and were accomodated anyway.Love the welcome,the atmosphere,and the food is always sublime.All of my guests tried something new,watched it all being cooked to order,and everyone of them wants to go back.P.S,cheeky visits to the toilet for legitimised vandalism add to the charm!!

What a friendly restaurant. The restaurant managed to accommodate a group if 13 but coped really well in what is not the largest restaurant we have experienced. The set meal that we had was brilliant. How they managed to serve 13 meals from such a small kitchen I have no idea. Would not hesitate to revisit - sooner the better.

When we entered the restaurant we were attended by a lovely lady who and we felt that it is probably this hospitality that makes it #1 on trip advisor. When the food arrived on our tables we realised that hospitality is probably a distant (yet worthy) second reason. The food blew us away by its richness. If I could recollect... More
