used to think this place was great. went there last week and it smelled of sewage. waitress couldn't understand anything we asked for; she didn't know the menu; half our food came out quickly and half didn't make it out. when we asked about it we then waited 20 more minutes and came out wrong. manager took forever to come...

The food here is good but a bit salty for me. The opa fries are really good and so is the gyro. Service is hit or miss in terms of friendliness and quickness. We routinely have to wait long times between drink refills (which, since the food is salty, is quite painful while you are waiting for another drop of... More

I was staying in Bethesda for the week and looking for casual, healthy options. According to their website, the moussaka included a salad. When I walked into restaurant to order a to-go order, they charged charged extra for the salad. Upon return to my hotel room, I discovered the salad contained some mushy, almost moldy tomatoes. The moussaka had eggplant... More

This is my local go to place for something great tasting and not too expensive. I have lived in Bethesda for 10 years and this is definitely my most frequented restaurants in the area. I especially love their Gyro's!

Hi, Last night we did a take out from Yamas and i would never ever do it again. The meat and chicken was extremely dry and tasteless. No vegetables and burnt bread. The only thing that tasted ok was the tzatziki!

I will get this next time, but I ordered their 3course meal with appetizer of eggplant soslu, then salmon with vegetables and then dessert of saragli (similar... More

We've eaten here twice recently. Decent, clean but very basic in terms of atmosphere. We each had the Yamas gyro which comes with a choice of several side dishes, including a small house salad. I enjoyed the house salad the first time, nice mix of very fresh greens. Most recently we shared sides of roasted vegetables and roasted veg orzo,... More

Yamas is a great place to eat and hang out with friends, and I was reminded of this over the past few days. I was there twice in two days, both times with good friends. It really is a great spot to hang out and have some good food while you catch up with friends. I tried a new item... More
