What a discovery. The food is to die for and prepared in front of you and to your taste. This is one place I will certainly be revisiting. Only 2 downsides no toilet facilities on site and no menus displaying their food from outside. All in all well worth a visit.

The food was very good but there is just no atmosphere and the seating is cramped and uncomfortable. It was so cold in there, the door was constantly open for takeaways, we all were pleased to leave. Such a shame.

Once again we had a wonderful meal, the staff are very attentive and friendly. It is nice to be able to watch the chef as he cooks the only down side is that there is no toilet on the premises and it was quite chilly

I have been a big fan of this place and went many times and was always happy. However, some months ago I went with my wife and we both felt it wasn't quite as good as it used to be. Never mind, everyone can have an off day so went another time. Unfortunately the impression was then confirmed and overall... More

Great little place. Food cooked to order in front of you using fresh ingredients. Good value in an unlikely setting. Well worth a punt.

Try the chicken Massaman - lovely. This Thai cafe also does English cafe food but the Thai is so nice you'd be crazy to eat anything else. Great for lunch.

We gave been to Yama's many times and have always had extremely good meals. Last night we had the Greek Ribs and they were amazingly delicious. One of our all time favourites!

Due to the high rating on trip advisor and byob we decided to give this place a go while in margate for a festival. It's nothing flash from the inside or out, but food was tasty, it was good for the price. Only slight criticism would be the lack of an ice bucket to keep our bottle cool, would have... More
