Wonderful warm man is co-owner of this place. The food is excellent and genuine Thai food. It is a warm cafe atmosphere rather than a formal restaurant but still romantic. Fantastic and very genuine place. Very strongly recommended.

You should believe the reviews because this is the best place to eat in margate. To be truthful it's a shame it's in margate, but it works here!

Simplicity ought to be the watchword of every chef... as many seeking fame and fortune 'over egg the pudding'. Take Sea Bass as an example. This is the most delicate and sweet of fish, for which a simple butter sauce or, at most one with a tiny hint of garlic or lemon, allows the flavour to rise to your palette.... More

When we walked in, it felt more like a cafe but then I saw all the fresh vegetables behind the counter and smelt the Thai food cooking I felt a good atmosphere, I just couldn't wait to order! I ordered the black pepper and garlic dish and paid £2 extra to add duck, it was the best duck I've ever... More

Couldn't fault our evening here. Really friendly staff, incredibly delicious fresh food and byo as well. Well worth the walk up the High Street. Not just the best Thai food in Margate but the best Thai food I have had in a long time.

I went in the evening with my partner. It was refreshing to find a Malaysian restaurant without the gimmicky design but with a clean and basic set up. Yama's doesn't pretend to be something it's not. It's tasty, honest and traditional food with brilliant flavours at a very reasonable price. The service was very good-the owner came out to meet... More

We spent a few days in Margate this week and had great difficulty in finding a decent restaurant but Yama's ticked every box. Against all odds this wonderful couple have worked wonders and produce first class meals. Do not miss the opportunity to eat at this restaurant.

We visited the restaurant this week for dinner. The staff were so friendly and polite. The food was delicious and good portion sizes to! We had the chicken satay and ribs in pineapple, pad Thai, beef in holy basil and green chicken curry. All really tasty, fresh and authentic. We loved it so much we are heading back there tonight.
