An unexpected gem at the top of the High Street

This place is amazing - fantastic Thai food freshly cooked to order, friendly staff, and a down-to-earth buzzy atmosphere. I am now eating here twice a week it's so good, and best of all, you can take your own wine/beer and there is no corkage charge!

The food was lovely, the staff were friendly. All it needed a bit of a clean but they were in the process of moving next door 🙂

Always a place to go for great tasting food and really friendly service. If you like Thai food, you must visit here! The restaurant is quite small so can be a challenge getting seated sometimes but a little patience is worth the experience.

My son took me there for the first time. It was out of this world! The massaman curry was my meal. I have never ever tasted anything so good! Needless to say, I've been back a few times now and introduced other friends to Yama's delights.

I first tried Yama's after reading a positive review in a national newspaper. I now regularly eat at Yama's on lunch breaks in margate. The curries are all sublime, Pad Thai is also fantastic. In fact I've yet to order a dish I haven't thoroughly enjoyed. The staff are friendly, and the food is always cooked and served promptly. It's... More

This restaurant is located at the top end of Margate High Street which has got to be one of the most deprived areas in the whole of England. When I arrived I thought this can't be it as it looks like a dive cafe but I had heard that the food is very good so wanted to give it a... More

We visit Yamas on a semi regular basis and we find it always is consistent with the food flavours. I would recommend you book as they are always busy. I have been dissapointed a few times because they don't allways answer their phone. It is a relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff.

Used to love here but sadly they have got greedy and put their prices up, but not modernised the decor to reflect this. We regularly used to eat here but now cant even get a take away without being told they are 'too busy' for loyal customers. Such a shame as the food is excellent, but left dissappointed

Yama's is not a huge establishment but 10 of us were seated comfortably without inconveniencing other diners. The menu choice was excellent and our 4 vegetarians were well catered for. The hard working chef can only be admired for delivering such quality food to both diners and take-away customers alike. All of our delicious dishes arrived hot and well presented.... More
