“Good food, nice people”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

We have been eating at Nazareth for years, from when they were in the old place across 161. The food is always good, the prices are very reasonable and the service is good. I love the gyro, rice cup, lentil soup, and the pita is the best around fresh and warm. I am hooked on the fresh cut fries and special sauce. Actually I eat the sauce on everything, it is addicting. The owner is a character and super friendly. We go there a couple of times a month at least.

“Good review, good but not top 5”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

This is a very casual seat yourself establishment with a strong lunch crowd.
I have lunch here nomally about once a week and the service is usally good with friendly hard working servers. The food is normally fresh, well prepared & served in a timely manner.
The servers are great at keeping your drinks refilled. If you like hot wings & I do mean hot ,the wings here will do the job and then some.
The dining room is clean but not national chain standards.
There are some servers that try to take orders for a table of 4-5 w/o writing them down and then have to come back out to the table to reconfirm orders.
Facility maintainance seems to be an issue as the men's room has had issues & out of order items most every time I visit lately. (signs posted letting you know they are aware of the smell.) not as bad today but still there & one out of order sign.
Is this a good place to go for lunch? Yes it is and I will continue to do so. I have out of town friends who always ask to go here and my wife loves their gyro.
Is it honestly really one of the top 10 restaurants in Columbus? Not in my top 10 but I could see why others might think so if only considering casual or lunch places.

“Spicy chicken and rice - YES!!!”
Reviewed 3 August 2011

One of my favorite restaurants in the city. Go to dish is the spicy chicken and rice but don't miss the greek (geek) salad, baba, hummus and soups. You'll be entertained with the owner and staff. Always a great meal! Thanks Hany!

“Confused”
Reviewed 27 June 2011

I came on trip advisor looking for good mediterranean food, went to Nazareth and was completely disappointed.

American cheese on a gyro...really?

The quality of the food served is poor, doesn't capture the essence of mediterranean food, which is usually fresh and delicious. This place should be far from 2nd in Columbus, hence the confusion.

“delicious!”
Reviewed 18 June 2011

I go there once every 2 weeks. If you get a gyro anywhere else, you will be disappointed. Owner is also a treat to see when he is in, very nice atmosphere, super friendly staff!
