“Nice restaurant with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We had here 2 times diner. Always very full of people. The menu was handwritten and had also some Italian dished; my advise would be to extend this. The traditional dishes are also available.
The lady was very friendly and helpfull; the boss was a little bit strange and not always polite. The meals were great and large. Also a cosy atmosphere. Many seats outside, but also inside. We did prefer the inside tables. When you enter after 20.00 hr, you better make a reservation. The kitchen was only by 3 women. The restaurants are obliged from the Greece gouvernment to hang out a leaflet: if you don't receive a formal bill, you don't have to pay. The bos of the Yemini made the bills handwritten. So maybe he did not want to pay taxes......

“Two excellent meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

we ate here twice during our recent stay in Naoussa. On both occasions the food was superb, the service great and the quality and value for money excellent.Do not go expecting fast food and fast service. Go expecting top notch fresh cooked food and a relaxing evening. I would recommend Yemeni to anyone. Beware the free Raki shots!!

“Beautiful food, excellent service. You must go early as they don't take bookings and it is a smallish restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Personal wine selection, nice range of Greek specialties. It was very early in the season so we had a hand-written menu to select from. Can't remember exactly what I had but all 4 of us really enjoyed the food immensely. It was our first restaurant on Paros and ended up being equal first for me.

“Over-hyped, but good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

So, I had a good chicken souvalaki here, but frankly the lamb in vine leaves (that many people go on about in the comments on this website), was cooked to greyness and lacking in any real flavour compared to a standard joint of roast lamb (especially one stuffed with anchovies, garlic and rosemary).

Not really sure why everyone raves about this place *quite* so much as, sure, you can get a decent meal here - but there are plenty of other good places to eat in Naoussa so I implore you to spread the love around as frankly it was a bit sad seeing so many deserving, but empty places, while this one had a queue of people outside.

“Yummy Yemeni”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Two couples, all highly satisfied with service, quality, quantity and price. Individual attention to our wine needs never seen before in what is essentially a family restaurant. Best restaurant we have experienced in Paros so far (including Soso and Palia Agora which were both very good).
