Book ahead as we were lucky! This family restaurant should have stars as it's incredible! Nothing is too much trouble and the family are wonderful! We even took home our doggy bags! What a place! Don't go there as it might mean I can't!

My second visit to Yama on trip to Margate. The food is consistently marvellous; fresh, flavoursome and honest. Very good value and service is courteous, friendly and efficient. A shining star at the top of Margate's seedily bleak High Street.

A hidden gem! Small but very busy, fantastic value for money. Bring your own booze. Freshly cooked, open kitchen. Amazing chef, very friendly staff. Need to book for dinner weekends!

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.

Thank John D
