Me and my friend has chicken thai green curry (classic choice). It was amazing! The service was good, lunch got in really fast (I swear in less than 4 minutes) and the food was excellent, it tasted just like food that I had in Thailand! And that was just under £6. Go eat there!

We went to Yama's on the back of tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Food was plentiful, affordable and very delicious. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful (we're from out of town). Woudl return in our heartbeat. Next trip to Margate will have Yama's as our first stop. Our kids loved it too. Their thai curries can be modified... More

Me and my girlfriend been to Margate for a weekend and I choose Yama's purely by the rating. I am a fan of Thai food and Sara is ok with it, so it was an obvious choice. We had vegetable rolls and fish cakes for starters. Those were of a good standard and we ordered main dishes here as well.... More

I have been to Yama's before after seeing the great reviews on trip advisor and I have always had a great meal. I took a group of friends who we're visiting Margate over the weekend and Yama's did not let me down. The atmosphere was great as always. Everyone was so impressed with the food, we ordered all the starters... More

I'd read about the quality food and service delivered by Yamas and so after visiting my kids Nan and Grandad in Margate, decided it was time for a Thai meal. Not disappointed, Terry delivered a first class service, coupled with fresh and delicious Thai food, to complete a fantastic evening! Thanks....we'll be back soon.

After reading about Yama's in Waitrose Magazine we paid a visit for lunch and were very happy we did. The food is lovely. Fresh, tasty and authentic and all at a very good price. The owner was really friendly too. Recommended!

If you want Thai food at its best put Yamas on your "must do " list. We travel from Rochester to eat there, and we have a good Thai restaurant on our doorstep . The food is so fresh tasting and beautifully cooked using decent ingredients. It's not posh but just a fantastic experience due to the personality of the... More

We were took here by friends and I have to say we had a fantastic meal. I had never had thai before and we were brought a selection of starters which were fantastic, my favorites were the dumplings and the chicken satay, the chicken was so tender cooked to perfection. We then had pad thai, coconut rice and a Masaman... More
