Clean nice restaurant, but the food is very average in terms of taste and the portion size. For example, they generally use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts in their dishes.

Excellent food and service. Very good value. The best calamari I've had in a long time. My husband had the chicken souvlaki and I stole his potatoes. They were delicious.

Super good food!! Worth going in even though it is next to the Avalanche pub. Calamari is awesome and so is all of the things I tried so far.

We just enjoyed a wonderful meal at Yiamas. Everything was delicious, and Amanda the server, was very friendly, sweet and efficient.

Wanted to take our food order before asking if we would like drinks. Even when we gave her the drink order she wanted our food order before getting the drinks. At one point she was sitting at a table visiting and checking her cell phone. No dessert offered the bill just arrived. We went to Dairy Queen for dessert .

you can tell a lot about a place when you have a conversation with the staff. If they are friendly and open, that probably means they enjoy working there. We had a wonderful set of conversations while eating a very good meal. The lamb was excellent and the kalamari was very good, not salty and no batter.

Both the food and the atmosphere were good - the best spanakopita I have had outside Greece! Our fussy 6 year old really enjoyed his chicken Kabab!

Truly a wonderful Greek dining experience. The setting is colourful and lively and on this Sunday we were entertained by a very talented veiled dancer while we enjoyed a delectable calamari appy. The main courses and salads didn't disappoint and were succulent, flavourful, savoury and delicious. Outside, on the spit, was leg of lamb and the enticing aromas wafted throughout... More
