Visiting Nottingham, I couldn't help myself notice the variety of restaurants in the area. Mexican, Italian, steak houses etc. We came across to a Greek one. So we decided to give it a go. This is a 2 floor restaurant with nice decor and splendid Greek music. You can listen from Melina Mercouri till Markos Vamvakaris. The atmosphere is cosy and warm. We ordered kleftiko (succulent Lamb shank, slowly cooked until tender) and sofrito (tender pieces of beef steak cooked in a garlic cream sauce) a traditional recipe of Kefallonia island) and pork souvlaki for the kids. Also had tirokafteri (spicy cheese dip made from cream cheese, feta cheese and chili), fried halloumi cheese, fried potatoes and a Greek salad! Kleftiko was amazing. Melted in your mouth! Sofrito was good but something was missing from the recipe to be honest. I would love to try it one more time. Pork souvlaki delicious, big portion, the kids loved it, halloumi was ok, tirokafteti was ok but still something was missing. Is it the cheese used for the dip? Probably. Greek salad very good. Finally the fried potatoes were also fine. The waiter and waitress were very Professional and with helpful attitude. We really loved it, definitely we will visit it again soon. Happy New Year to all!!

Many people have told me how good this place is and I have to say they are right !!

Really good food and service very friendly and efficient.

Menu offers something for all tastes at fantastic price.

It is a fair journey for me to Nottingham but it is well worth it to eat at Yamas.

Always busy long may they continue to do well far superior to any chain restaurant I have ever eaten in !!

Thanks to all involved for offering such a good place to go.

Cosy restaurant, late afternoon booking for 6 hungry people fresh from shopping..
we ordered lots of separate dishes, amazingly all arrived at the same time warm & enticing.
Our favourites were the Salmon Prawn dish, followed by The Dauphinois in cream & Lamb Tagine, but honestly ALL excellent. We had a Gluten intolerant member & Pitta bread was requested with excellent taste & no other problems with the other dishes.
Great service a must visit destination.

We went for lunch, it was busy and buzzing, a good job we booked in advance. Great choice and as they cook from scratch they were able to easily cope with our dietary requirements.

Despite being busy the staff were attentive and friendly. The food was excellent and plentiful and with drinks, coffees and a dessert the price was £20 a head.

We all enjoyed ourselves and will be back.
