The food at Yiamas is good quality for the dollar. The menu has a good selection, but beware the moussaka has only a vegetarian option. Service is friendly. Atmosphere can be a bit noisy if the restaurant is full, but service does not seem to suffer.

Four friends and myself dined here just before Christmas. We shared their platter which includes most everything on their menu. Each piece was delicious & perfectly prepared. Service was excellent.

The food is good but extremely average -- in terms of price, portion size, decor, food quality, and taste. For example, chicken souvlakis are made with chicken thighs . . .

We've eaten here a number of times, just the two of us or as part of a group, and everyone has always loved it. Warning: they really feed you here, no skimping on portion sizes so fast before you come. Food is delicious and good value. Their "Ekmek" dessert is our favourite, surprisingly light and really good. Baklava isn't usually... More
