We went for lunch and found a quiet and VERY clean atmosphere that gave you the feeling that you just been invited into someones home for lunch. The portions are big and fresh. The Gyro platter filled me for the rest of the day...

This was definitely off the beaten path. We were staying in Williamsburg and this restaurant is on the way to Jamestown; however, if you like Mediterranean food I would recommend a visit. Parking is around the back and be sure to be on the look-out as you come close to the address because it sits right on the corner and... More

Nazar is well located in a newer building, with a welcoming entrance and enchanting décor. The myriad "nazars" (to ward off evil) around the restaurant create an exotic décor that makes one want to travel to the Mediterranean. The menu has traditional fare like hummus and tabouli, along with items you don't see at every Turkish restaurant, like red lentil... More

We came up to your establishment today and was very disappointed with the food. We ordered the Iskenderun and "Beef Kabob". The vegetables were nasty. Microwaved vegetables, pita bread was not real pita bread and the meat was nasty. Anyone to can open a package if meat and cook it. The Iskender was nasty. I take it canned tomatoe sauce... More

The food was great as was the service. A lot of menu items were more expensive than I expected. We ended up eating here due to a long wait at another restaurant.

There are fast food Greek restaurants in Williamsburg--but we appreciate Nazar's, since their food does not come from a steam table. That means it takes a bit longer, but we've found it's worth the wait. Last week I had the daily gyro special: lamb with spinach and didn't care for it as much as the regular gyro. A couple of...

We stopped here for a late lunch and got fresh made hot bread with hummus, wonderful salads and chicken kabobs, and delicious freshly steamed vegetables. ..my son ate every bite of the veggies! Dessert was chocolate topped pudding that was their specialty. ..delicious. Total bill for the food was about $35. The chef also made us a yogurt drink that... More

After reading some of the reviews here I didn't know what to expect. The restaurant is not far from our house and my husband and I decided to give it a shot. We were pleasantly surprised. The appetizers seemed a little pricey ($8 for hummus) but when we ordered we saw that it was in fact a huge portion with... More

Family dined here on a Sunday evening. Food was less than expected. Ground lamb was tough. Best fare for the evening was the sampler appetizer. Waitress was only four days experienced.

We have gone to Nazar restaurant many times, the food and service has been great. Not last night. The new wait staff need a lot of training. There is a lot more to waiting tables then taking an order. The food was just OK. Maybe it was a bad night or maybe Nazar has a different manager. Saturday night and... More
