Caribbean
The relaxed and laid back, yet friendly and attentive service you receive in Jamaica is second to none. This accompanied by the exotic cocktails, lively atmosphere and of course, the delectable food provides a five star experience every time.

With Yah-So we knew we wanted to capture the all inclusive style service and bring the best of Jamaica to London’s doorstep.

We feel Yah-So will be the first of its kind to truly reflect the addictive atmosphere, vibrant food
and hospitable service you are guaranteed to receive in Jamaica

The service there is bad. The waiters have no manners they’re rude if you ask them for something they blank you. When they do finally serve u there’s a lot of Attitude. There customer service skills are poor. When you do speak with management they don’t do nothing about it all they say is we have 2 girls that’s like that. How can they have rude staff working in there Establishment and know there rude and be ok with it. I wouldn’t advise anybody to go
There in a rush

It took 45 minutes to just get our drinks and then they were bought to the table separately, 3 different times and there were only 6 of us! Our 4 year old had to wait 50 minutes just for a fruit juice!!

The staff (apart from one waitress who was excellent!) were all over the place and actually ruined the whole evening by their lack of care/experience and service.

We had been looking forward to eating at Yah-So and although the food was actually amazing, we definitely won’t be going back due to the wait time and the appalling service!

Excellent from start to finish, the meals took a while to come out but every dish was well worth the wait.
We were a group of 6 and all received our meals at the same time. .cocktails and a birthday rum cake, will definitely be back :)

We were sat by the door which was awful & freezing cold, apparently no other tables were available. The young lady who was at the front greeting the customers was horrendously miserable and spoke with an attitude which we found quite rude and probably is in the wrong job. They need someone else at the front of house. Our waiter tried his best but it was extremely busy. The curry goat was tough but the seabass And the drinks was nice.

I booked a table at yah-so for my birthday and whilst there was a little bit of confusion on where we were going to sit, it was sorted out effectively. To make a long story short I had a really good birthday dinner. The drinks were great and the food tasted amazing. The only let down was that the food seemed to come out lukewarm/ cold. To improve, they could work on making sure the food is hot when it arrives at the table. However, that was my only con - I enjoyed myself and I'll be back for sure :)

The food at Yahso is amazing everytime we go! The service is a little slow but I think this is because the food is fresh. Everyone is friendly and the music mixed with the ambiance makes you feel at home.

Had a lovely evening but there’s just a few things need tweaking; service speed, attention to details, flavour in calamari.

Despite being short staffed, our Server Lauren was fantastic. She was friendly and attentive.
The quality and presentation of our food had greatly improved from my last visit.
Only negative was the long wait for drinks to come from the bar.

Terrible organisation in there. Only one girl was serving the whole floor but there was a million and one girls doing the minimum, at one point they were all behind the bar except the girl serving yet the drinks took ages to come? Felt sorry for the waitress. Such a shame because the food was great.

We've been there quite a few times and have had a very good experience each time. However, on Friday the 14th 2020 , the experience was a lot different. They had a set menu that you had to choose from, and that we did. The wait was around 2 hours for the food and when it arrived we were not pleased at all. We would still go back with the normal menu though.

Quality and taste of food and drinks is always exceptional! No other Caribbean restaurant food and drink comes close!
Some Waitress and Bar staff are not welcoming. No greetings, no checking to see if you need anything else or happy with what you have. Or completely ignores you standing at the bar!
Jug of water should be provided without having to ask. Also finger bowls.

First time visiting..it's a nice small Caribbean restaurant. The menu has a good option of Jamaican dishes to pick rrom. The food was delicious and drinks even better. Only negative is that we did feel a bit rushed by our waitress but this did not spoil our experience and we would still like to return in the future.

Delicious food and a truly lovely hostess. I had the oxtail, with sides of plantain, coleslaw and fried rice. Warning, there is no traditional rice and peas here, so don't be disappointed if that's what you are after. My partner had the jerk chicken with the same sides. My oxtail was delicious, flavourful and cooked just right. My partner's jerk chicken was a little dry but it was well seasoned, he was sorely disappointed they didn't have traditional rice and peas though, they are his favourite. My only criticism would be that the music was too loud, it gave my partner a headache and made conversation at the table difficult.

The food was ok the mutton had loads off fat in it , the oxtail was not the best to be honest only good thing I say was good is the cocktails, the standard of food could be much better for the sort of money we had paid , and me coming from so far for this place was not worth it

We waited 1 hour 2 minutes for our food. Manager refused to talk to us to explain when requested. Spoiled our whole experience that day. We have been before and the service was good. We don't know what happened on this visit as they would not engage.

A nice restaurant with good food and cocktails. Booked for a friends birthday but nothing special happened for her. I explained to who I think was the manager that my friend wouldn't like the birthday song/serenade but would appreciate the cake and it never came out! We were also seated by the door which was a a little tight and chilly when the door opened.
