I have been here a few times and has been good but my last visit was great I noticed there were some new staff every thing is made from scratch, from veggie burgers to the Baklava which is truly to die for . The menu is vast and authentic and very affordable. I would suggest this as a must -... More

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!

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
