Most of the food was great, but the sashimi was disappointing for a sushi restaurant as it was cut very thick which was strange. The service was ok but we didn't find the waiters/waitresses that attentive, especially considering the cost of the restaurant. The menu is now only viewable online which is completely understandable in the current climate regarding cleanliness, however the online menu wasn't very phone-friendly which made it difficult to read (could only see a few lines at a time).

Outstanding food, delicious cocktails, and a fun atmosphere. We have never had a bad meal here. My only wish is that they would bring back the special beef bao buns they did as a special last year...

Our first post-lockdown meal out and one of the best meals out I have ever had. Both the food and the drinks were delicious and very well presented, and the service was well paced. Looking forward to returning again soon!

Despite lockdown arrangements (staff in masks) Yamas continued to deliver - fantastic food, family friendly mixing with those on dates, lovely staff. Kind of pricey but we love it!

I love Yama Momo! The food never disappoints me. The staff are very attentive and always going the extra mile.
The vibe of the whole restaurant is absolutely amazing. I love that the kitchen is open so you'll able to see them freshly prepare every dish.

Always a 10/10 from me for this place

One of my top 3 places to eat in London. Even with COVID restrictions, it was a fun experience with no comprise on service and the quality of the food and yummy cocktails! I'm moving away so will really miss having this place on my doorstep!

This is our favourite restaurant even our very fussy son has this as no1 place to eat! Staff are friendly always welcoming and Carolinee (Brazilian) apologies if spelt incorrectly is our very person of all of restaurants we go to.

I booked to have dinner here for my partner's birthday with my partner and his parents. The ambience was ok, busy on a Friday night but tables are very close together. We ordered but the food came almost an hour later. One of the starters was completely forgotten and we had to ask twice to get it, which they still charged us for. The rice to accompany the mains also did not come and we had to ask twice - we couldn't eat the mains until the rice had come and the mains became cold. Service was very poor - we also had to ask twice to get our glasses refilled with water! Also had to ask twice to get the bill. The food was very slow and the waitresses were suffering from amnesia. Probably had only one person working in the kitchen on a Saturday night. Food was mediocre for the price. I do not recommend this place.

Second time enjoying the £25 all you can eat weekend buffet. despite the rather complex ordering rules this is an experience not to be missed. The food is amazing and I can't fault it on value.

The food was OK, but the sushi had too much mayonnaise and was quite disappointing. The toilets needed to be cleaned more regularly.

Overall it was OK, the service was good with friendly staff.

One of my all time favourite restaurants, I always save this as a venue for date nights or meeting up with good friends. Food, service, ambience, cocktails... it's all hard to fault really. Book a table well in advance is my best advice!

We've been here a few times and have always found the food delicious. On this occasion I'm marking it down a star because some elements of our main course were a little cold, which is disappointing - I wonder if they'd been left sitting a while before being brought over to us. Our waitress was very friendly, attentive and polite. The place itself is nice but we felt that the tables were a little too close to each other which made private conversation difficult. They're obviously trying to squeeze in as many people as possible!
