Is it Greek? Is it Indian? When Yias Yias opened it doors about 6/7 years ago, it was a well run greek restaurant with nice mediterrenean dishes. The pizza was particularly good... Unfortunately it has a confused menu now... How can a restaurant specialise in both greek and indian food? I tried their curry once and had to send it... More

Went with a friend for a quick lunch, like the street cafe vibe. Nice and simple lunch menu at very reasonable prices. The waiter was working alone, but we never felt unattended. This area is very competitive with too many restaurants. Please keep this place in mind !

Enjoyed a "foccacia" (pizza bread) and a few beers whilst having a meeting. Service was good - nicely attentive without being intrusive. Great atmosphere, probably encouraged by the side walk seating.

Very reasonably priced with some good items on the menu, although you will need to try it on more than one occasion as some items on the menu can be hit and miss. They have great specials and the service is on point.

Located on Stanley street in Port Elizabeth, one of the hubs of Port Elizabeth's nightlife, this is a nice family restaurant one can visit if you have kids with you. It is not as loud as Salt or other venues on the street. The pizzas are really tasty and so is the chicken!
