Thomas’s Taverna About Thomas

About your host, Thomas

Thomas Katsamangas was born in Katerini in northern Greece, where he developed a love of cooking at an early age, and learnt quickly from his mother the secrets of the kitchen.


Thirty years ago, Thomas came to England to hone his skills, and worked in a variety of Yorkshire’s premier Greek hotels and restaurants before securing his own business seven years ago in Otley.


Keen to develop a warm and friendly atmosphere, Thomas quickly earned a well deserved reputation for generous portions, excellent home cooked food and sensible prices.



Now wanting to give his customers the chance to enjoy traditional Greek food expertly prepared, Thomas has launched Greek Restaurant Nights at The Dales Cafe every Saturday evening.
