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

Went out for food just the two of us to this wonderful little cafe. Not many tables and you are close to the other customers but the food is fantastic and really good value for money. It only takes cash payment so beware and don't go if you are in a hurry as food takes a little while, but it... More

Delicious fresh Thai food. Fabulous service. On the high street of Margate, not in the best location but worth it for the food and service. Took a bottle of wine. Most enjoyable.

Wow, this really is authentic and delicious Thai food. It's a real treat. They offer a choice of heat and hot is tastefully hot, mouth burning but very edible, full on flavour and not offensive. The service is second to none. Top nosh.
