Meaning grandmother in Greek, Yiayias is owned and run by cousins Paul and Will, and pays tribute to their grandmother’s traditional, home-cooked food. From the family-friendly atmosphere to the decor, Yiayias recreates this for its guests – stop by the friendly restaurant for a truly memorable meal, or order a takeaway and enjoy your favourite dishes in the comfort of your own home.
Using fresh produce only – all meat and fish comes from the nearby Smithfield and Billingsgate markets – the kitchen team crafts freshly prepared food, ranging from classic dips like tzatziki and taramasalata to flavoursome souvlaki, which are grilled over real charcoal. There’s something for every palate and appetite on the menu, so why not order a few plates to share? Vegetarian options range from crispy falafel to creamy spanakopita, and seafood dishes include hand-cut calamari and Mediterranean prawns. Cypriot-style kebabs are stuffed with your choice of pork, chicken, lamb, beef or vegetables and make a satisfying main, and at lunchtime a chunky Cyprus sandwich is a great way to refuel.
Serving the locals of St Albans and the surrounding area, the team at Yiayias is a popular takeaway choice. Why not settle in for the night and enjoy a selection of wonderful dishes in the comfort of your own home?
