This place features Mediterranean food, fast, fried and not so good. It's a wonder that this place has managed to exist over several years as the food is consistently cold, oily and way too salty.

I am mediterranean and Egyptian, and the food over there is neither Turkish nor Arabic.....It is just horrible, not cooked well, and not marinated.....And after all, it did hurt my stomach....Ugly and dirty seating area and the food is quite expensive!!....

As Sahar on the beach was pretty busy & had a wait time of 30mins, we walked 15mins in the heat with the toddlers to this place as someone said we can sit & eat. Forget about sitting & eating if you have a large group. Initially a lady came to us & said it is a 30mins wait. We... More

Bread made to order and fun to watch the baking process. Friendly staff. Limited selections on menu . Falafel was crispy and very light.

The food doesn't worth the price, it was expensive and the staff wasn't really welcoming. I asked for a gyro with meat it was anything but meat

Food quality is average with a small size. Don't be surprised if you don't feel full. Definitely over priced. Won't go back.

We always visit this restaurant when we go to Lake George. We love the food here. We always try other places to eat, but this place is where we go to first when we get there. The prices are fair and the food is amazing.
