Popped in for lunch. Love Greek food and wanted to see whether this was up to scratch. All I cam say is wow we weren't disappointed. Greek chefs putting out the most wonderful authentic cuisine. Tried the Tzatziki, Houmos, Chicken Souvlaki and Gyros Pitta. All absolutely delicious. The place was very popular with people coming and going all the time,... More

First visit and can't wait for my second. The flavours were spectacular. The meat was cooked to perfection and the staff were warm, welcoming and friendly.

My partner and I love Corfu, especially the food and as he works near Yiamas, we decided to give it a try. It has a casual, homely feel, very like the tavernas we enjoy visiting on holiday and you can see into the kitchen to watch your food being prepared. We ordered half a carafe of red wine and a...

Returned for second visit after 2 years to see if any change. Had an excellent meal with the Moussaka the best we have ever had anywhere. Followed with afters recommended to us by the daughter of the owners. Would highly recommend you give this a try if you like Greek food.

I had dinner here on the weekend. The outside looks quite dingy, with corrugated iron and a bear window displaying the menu, but when you step inside you step into Greece! The decor and atmosphere is very authentic, and the the amount of clientele within is testament to its reputation locally. Being that I am Greek, I was very happy... More

I'm not Greek so I cannot testify to the authenticity of the Greek cuisine at Yiamas, but it feels real and the food is super-tasty and well-priced. The city-centre location, roughly between Buchanan St. Underground and the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, makes for convenient pre-theatre dining. The staff are friendly and the surroundings unpretentious but cozy. But it's the attention... More

Been here twice now and very much enjoyed the food. Not an expert on traditional Greek cuisine but the gyros were delicious (and very reasonably priced) so nothing to complain about at all. Service has always been excellent for me also.

Food and service is good ordered lentil soup for starter and stuffed pepper for main both were delicious and filling . Only negative is you get a bit of a draft from the front door being opened and closed. Would be good to see this addressed as my friend was cold and won't be returning to the restaurant for this...

The restaurant was fairly empty and my first impact was the smell of hot fat! That aside I was made welcome and if you like no fuss decor this could be up your street. Having said this the food was tasty and priced reasonably. But if you are looking for that holiday feel I'd give it a miss. I had... More

Go to this place. Buy a gyros. Get everything on it. Sit in with a coffee or have it to go. I love this place. Quality vibes and atmosphere. Great service and most importantly sensational food!
