Went for Saturday evening meal based in Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed! Small cafe, but great food. It's bring your own alcohol so that makes it cheaper too, just to make it even more appealingly!! The staff were great and Terry, the owner, was very friendly and chatty. Defo worth a visit!!

Very small and compact but open kitchen, service fantastic and the food second to none - freshly prepared and cooked in front of you and very reasonable price - bring your own drink as well which ensures you drink what you like will be returning very soon

The whole family agreed that we have just had the best Thai food we've eaten outside of Thailand. My dish was Thai spicy and spot on. They even had a dish for Our 9 year old who doesn't like spicy food. She now highly recommends Yama's special mango curry. The staff are fantastic and you take your own alcohol so... More

Second visit on Saturday for lunch and it really is very good, I almost don't want to review it in case I can't get a table next time I want to! I do think booking is a must as only about sixteen covers in this lovely little Thai restaurant. Food is all freshly prepared, the waitress is delightful and you... More

This place has good reviews for a reason and I went out of my way to eat here on a brief visit to Margate. Everything is freshly cooked and superbly flavoured. The staff are friendly and helpful, the range of food is good considering this is just a cafe. A real Jewel on a high street that's seen better days.

Turned up to eat at the restaurant and it was closed - I had emailed them that day and they never mentioned this - a complete waste of time
