Went here on a busy Saturday night. Service was friendly, food was great - really fresh veg in our dishes, and great value at about £35-40 for 3 people - prawn crackers to nibble, mains with rice, a soft drink each and two coffees. It's pretty cosy as the cafe is very small, but the atmosphere is nice. Would definitely... More

This is a small Thai cafe which serves really really good food. We have been to many thai restaurants, and travelled extensively in thailand so I hope we know good when we see it; the flavours were spot on, and if you ask for hot /spicy you get it, unlike some english thai places. Portions were pretty generous too. The... More

I came here after seeing the excellent reviews on trip advisor and wasn't disappointed. The food is the star of the show here.... Probably some of the best Thai food that I've had outside of Thailand. The decor of the place is simple but clean and all the staff are friendly and welcoming without being over the top. Visit here... More

When looking for a new place to go to eat a number of friends recommended Yama's to us. In fact one person said 'If we have ever been to any other Thai restaurant before you will never go back, as yamas beats them all hands down.' A very bold statement, so I decided to look at some Tripadvisor reviews, in... More

Thank you to all the staff and Terry for a great meal. Delicious affordable food and even our fussy 12 year old ate his. Plus tofu which was delicious and I honestly think that is a tricky one to pull off. We will be back. Byo makes it even better! Thanks again.

Visited here for my birthday whilst on a weekend break in Margate. Used trip advisor and found some fab reviews. Firstly the hosts are wonderful, really friendly and genuine; secondly and most importantly, the food is exquisite. Literally amazing. Ridiculously cheap and like heaven on earth. Please visit here, you won't regret it!!
