My favourite restaurant in Margate

As vegans it is harder to find choices in Margate, but Yamas offers so many options. The chef is brilliant, and happy to go off menu. We usually order a kaprow with extra veg and tofu, and it is the perfect, fresh, vegan thai meal. Yamas has been a saviour on many long days, without other vegan... read more

Everyone must visit at least once! The food is to die for! Have never had a mediocre meal it has always been very scrummy and filling! Have visited since it opened and it never disappoints!

Went to margate with a friend and as ever looked at trip adviser for good restaurants. Decided to go to Yama's. Got a bit confused as to where it is. Find the High street and head away from the sea. It is up the hill on the left. We knew you can take wine and we bought a bottle across... More

Excellent food! It's 121 on the high street but on Google maps it shows up a bit sooner on the street than it actually is. Just keep walking up the hill - you'll see it (I'll include a photo). I checked this place out because of the ratings it received on Tripadvisor and I'm glad I didn't the food is... More

Not knowing what to expect we didnt book ahead and decided to sit outside and wait for opening time at 5pm. When they opened up we went in and all the tables we're reserved, when we explained that we... More

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.
