My partner and I have been coming here for years and have always enjoyed it. My family absolutely love it. Now we come here with our daughter and the staff are absolutely lovely. They always go out of their way for their customers. And their prices are really fair for the size of portions that they give. The food is... More

We were recommended to visit this place by the lovely locals of Margate, and they know best! It was busy and bustling so there was no room to eat in on a Saturday night last minute, but that is a good sign and we were pre-warned about this, so opted for takeaway. The staff were lovely and friendly, polite and... More

We ate here twice whilst we were staying in Margate. The first night the restaurant was quiet so we were able to speak to Terry and Noi. We had an lovely meal and the dim sum was especially good. The meal overall was excellent and extremely good value. We were able to take our own wine. We were delighted to... More

Really enjoyed and satisfied my chilli craving in Margate. Yama's is an authentic, cute little spot. However, for a casual eatery/ take away, the price is not a bargain and for that price, I'd would like to see slickly bigger "king prawns" in my soup (£5) and stir fry (£7,50)...General experience is pleasant...

Considering this restaurant is less than a quarter of a mile from our home it has taken my wife and I 3 years to actually eat here. A small no frills place to eat, just as many good local places are, serving Thai and English cuisine. Food is prepared within feet of where you sit and has to rate as... More

One of the best Thai restaurant we've been to, price amazingly cheap as well. Place is full when we came in, but Terry made sure we got a table in 5 mins. Terry is such a friendly and warm host to all his customers and his wife Noi cooks so delicious Thai curry!

A small restaurant at the top of the high street. It's probably best to book as we got very lucky walking in and being able to get a table. Friendly service and the best thai food I've had outside Thailand. Absolutely delicious, will definitely be going back.

I came here with colleagues three times whilst staying in Margate- that says it all! Great authentic Thai lovingly made, easily the best I've eaten outside Thailand. What stands out is how friendly & welcoming the owner is, elevating the whole experience. "Fine Dining" it isn't but at circa £15 a head for a feast you can't go wrong, just... More
