My fiance and I visited this restaurant during our two night stay in Kelowna. The restaurant was very quiet but it was a Sunday night and honestly we enjoy our privacy so it was great for us! The service was great and we had a lovely evening. The food was good but not the best greek food we have had.... More

Stopped in on a Friday night, just before 7pm with no reservation. There were 3 of us and we were seated promptly with an enthusiastic server. I ordered the cashew crusted salmon feature with truffle and lemon oil. I was completely amazed by the Entre. Vegetables (fire roasted red pepper, asparagus and zuchini) were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The crust... More

I have been here a few times and I have ordered take out too. The staff are usually very friendly and quick, but this time the service was not as good as usual. I considered it as a one off. The food was great as usual and I still enjoyed myself we all did.

Dinner at Yamas was highly disappointing. Not worth the trip or money. The amounts are petty except for the rice which is tasteless.They list prawns however what you get are tiny shrimps and maybe 5 at that. The portion of lemon roasted potatoes are insulting along with the main. For a Mediterranean the lack of flavor or authenticity just added... More

We were seated immediately on a busy Saturday night. Several large groups around us. Waited 10 minutes and not a server approaching us. We were ready to leave and then the server came. We said if it was going to be bad we would just leave now. She assured us it was just a blip and appoligized. From then on... More

I can't remember the first time I ate at Yamas but I can remember the food always hitting the mark! Do yourself a favour and don't pass up going when ever you get the chance!

What more can you ask, right? Generous portions of really, really, really good food. Nice ambience, very friendly servers, great interior, comfortable chairs, and did I say the really, really tasty food? I'd come back again when I'm back in town.

Yamas is the best Greek food in Kelowna! The food is always consistently great! My personal favorite is the rack of lamb...Love it :)

A group of us we're here for a friend's birthday. Forty five minutes went by before the starter arrived. Another hour before the main. This was punctuated with wrong and delayed drink orders. The food was good but over priced. Not as good and double what you'd pay for Greek in Vancouver. Another hour was spent trying in vain to... More

Well...the staff was nice and the food was filling. But if you expect or look for authentic greek taste, then you might be unsatisfied. If you have not been to anywhere where you get a real Greek taste , you will probably be happy and should give it a try, cause there seems to be no real alternative in Kelowna.... More
