It was my lovely friend Chloe’s birthday last week, and so we dropped in to one of my favourite restaurants, Yamas Meze & Tapas for dinner.
Yamas is located in Hockley on Thurland Street, serving gorgeous, freshly prepared Greek meze dishes and fantastic customer service. It’s an intimate, dark restaurant with a small downstairs and a slightly larger second floor,
We were starving and greedy and so opted for the massive ‘Special Meze’ at £21.45 per person (usually a minimum of 4 people but we arrived early and the lovely staff allowed us to have this for two person)
The menu consists of:
Tirokafteri A spicy cheese dip made from feta cheese and chili
Kritharaki – Rice pasta with beef mince and tomatoes, topped with melted cheese
Loukanika [GF] Grilled Greek pork sausage
Pork Souvlaki Marinated pieces of meat grilled on BBQ
Halloumi & Lounza [GF] Grilled halloumi with smoked pork loin
PLUS… we ordered falafel! As if the above wasn’t enough!
The food at Yamas is delicious, authentic and great value for money! What really makes this place really special though, is the fantastic service. No matter how quiet or busy Yamas is, everyone genuinely smiles and makes a fuss. We were offered a shot of sambuca as a birthday treat for Chloe, which was lovely! I can’t praise Yamas enough for the fantastic time we had… although the stairs were hard to manage after all that food haha
