  •   Excellent restaurant good food great pricing for kosher food, really get your money's worth. Service is 5 star meat is top grade and you always get that Israeli feel when you go sit in the restaurant. Salads taste home made, and there is food for everyone kids, and adults.

      When an Israeli tells you to ready your belly for the best shawarma outside of Israel, you listen and arrive hungry. Grill Point is in a neighborhood amongst many  a Kosher market and eatery, but it has something a little special. Call it a "tribal" experience in Hebrew cuisine since all corners of the Middle East to Eastern Europe are represented. We ordered the lamb (obviously!) and were presented with little plates for the salad items up front that customers self serve. Sour pickles, spiced brined veggies, red and white cabbage slaw and beets were some of the options. They acted almost like a palate cleanser for all that drippy, fatty lamb we shoved into our mouths. It's impossible to be lady like with this food, although I tried and gave up. Know that there will be hummus and oil smeared all over your lips dripping down into your cleavage, pants leg or table top depending on how you decide to sit with this thing and your gender. My companion did a little shimmy dance between drizzles of tahini. It was hard to peel yourself off the seat afterward. The grapefruit flavored soft drink he recommended was a pleasant surprise because it was more like a nectar and hardly carbonated. I drank one. I could have drank at least 2 or 3. If there was Vodka or Arak involved, I would have had a brilliant cocktail. The only thing that put me off initially was the bits of meat, bread and salad items under the table and on the seat next to me from previous patrons.  A little sweep and wipe down wouldn't have been a bad idea, but then again, with shawarma like that, leaving a mess must be the highest compliment. Lamb and L'chaim…so good.

      The worst restaurant I have ever been to. First of all the prices are extremely expensive. The customer service sucks. Me and my friend went their and ordered two chicken shawarma. We were sitting at our seat when the waitress came over and told us to get up and move. She told us that this seat is for customers who pay more money. How rude!! At least if you can't treat your customers like customers. Then treat them as human beings.

  •   OMG – the hustle, the bustle, the noise, the chaos, the ethnicity – the FOOD! Fabulousness. Have to make it just 4 stars bc it is just nowhere near a 5-star restaurant – no ambience, probably not the most sanitary, but who cares, the schwarma was TO DIE FOR. Yum. The side salads fantastic too. We all had the baby chicken (why is this a "baby?") schwarma. The fries were soggy and really, the dish would be fine frie-less. The beet salad was fantastic.  Give me spicy sauces and make me swoon. We live where things are calm and homogeneous, and miss a mish mosh or ethnic cuisines and people. We would be regulars if we lived closer for sure!

      If you're someone that likes diet, watered down alcohol and also believe in chauvinistic, sexist terminology, then go to the pub and ask for a "Girl Pint."

    If you ate 3 bowls of old English Porridge and go running, you will be out of breath. I call it a "Gruel Pant."

    And, if you're someone that points at girls, then go to Girl Point. And by the way you're a creep.

    But if you like Falafel. Go to Grill f***ing Point.

    What to get: Falafel
    What else: Shawarma
    What's the point in telling me what to order: Um… I thought…
    I'm just kidding. Get it? Point? Grill Point?: Oh. I get it. Hmm.
    Hmm what? You don't get it. Do you: No, I totally get it dude. I just…
    What then?: Maybe leave the jokes to me in future.
    …: …
    …: This is awkward.
    …: Um…
    …: On with the review then. (shakes head)

    If it was full of people hanging out and relaxing, it'd be Chill Point.

    I've been to Grill Point three times now, and each time I am thoroughly impressed. It's a little on the pricy side, especially if you order the fancy stuff and veer away from the tried and tested Falafel. But if you stick to the basics, you'll be under $10 and having a wonderful meal.

    If they made cereals, it'd be Mill Point.

    I think Mamoun's has the best Shawarma in NYC (although the Hoboken location is better), and when they mix it with Falafel it is even better. But for pure Falafel, I choose Grill Point. It's a 5 star place. It's run by Israelis and a lot of the employees are Israeli too as far as I can tell. It's very authentic, to say the least.

    If they were an awful sports team in France, it'd be Nil Points.

    Basically you ask for a falafel, they give you a delicious fluffy fresh pita stuffed with hot lightly spiced amazing falafel balls, and then you go to the salad bar and fill your pita with every type of Israeli deliciousness you can find. You're also allowed to fill a container up with salad as well, up to a certain point. And the salads are off-the-charts good and very homestyle and authentic too.

    If they were all murderers, and this restaurant was where they did all their evil deeds, it'd be Kill Point.

    In other words this is an experience that you do not want to miss. The second best authentic Israeli food I've had, and while the service can be brusque and prickly, the food is not. It's amazing. Besides, there was one girl last time I was here who cut in front of the other bored servers to get to me and take care of me, so to speak. She was super, duper nice and very flirty and chatty. So I really appreciated that, because on the phone they're usually dour, and in person most of them are indifferent or a little hostile. I don't care though. I'm all about the food.

    If they overcharge you, which might happen since they're kind of not great servers most of the time… then you'd have to argue over your Bill Points.

    By the way, the best Falafel and Shawarma I've ever eaten is nearby. It's in Roslyn on Long Island, and it's called Hummus World. Their "Shawafel" is one of the 20 best things I have ever eaten, from anywhere, in any country, in my life. Unfortunately, I got the horrible news that they have closed down due to a rent dispute, as of about 3 months ago. I am waiting patiently for news of them reopening. It was a lovely tiny little place.

    If Grill Point closed down too, it'd be renamed Still Point.

    I'm happy that Grill Point and Mamoun's still exist, and hopefully always will. But Hummus World was my sun and moon and shining star when it came to Shawarma, Falafel and Israeli food. So I am really hoping they will be back soon. I have my fingers crossed, and my tummy is rumbling in anticipation. You must try it when it opens. You simply must. I would drive 8 hours to Long Island from Buffalo just for a Shawafel. Seriously. And I have done.

    If they were also a gas station, it'd be Fill Point. Same thing if they provided studly gigolos too I suppose.

    But in the meantime… Grill Point is very very good Israeli food, and if you like Falafel and you're anywhere near Queens… you have to try this one. It's that good.

    And if they were on the side of a mountain, it'd be Hill Point.

    If you could write your last testament here, then Will Point. Similarly if Grace walked out on her friend, and he came here to be depressed, it'd be Will Point.

    If all the servers had acne, it'd be Clearasil Point.

    If they had coughs, then maybe Benadryl Point.

    And finally, if they were drug dealers, it would be Pill Point. Which would be a really catchy name, and I should patent that asap. I'm not saying they're not drug dealers by the way. I mean they may be. How would I know? If you wanna know, come in and ask them. Hey do you guys sell drugs. I'm sure they'll be cool about it. Or perhaps you can get carpets here. In which case they'd be Rug Dealers. You could come in and ask for carpets. Persian Rugs maybe. I mean, they're Israeli, so why not? The Israelis love the Persians right? BFFs? I think? No?

  •   A friend of mine and his father brought me here to try kosher Israeli food for the first time in my life. To be honest, I had no idea what to expect or what to order. They recommended that I try the baby chicken shawarma. No you are not served a baby chicken.. atleast I hope not :).

    I ordered the baby chicken shawarma wrap. The meal comes with free access to the salad bar – definitely take advantage! It's not your typical salad bar. You get all sorts of different salads (red cabbage, israeli salad, etc). Great option to get some fiber in your meal. Anyways the wrap arrived – it's a delicious pita bread wrap filled with chicken, fries, cucumbers, hummus, etc. I loved it. The pita bread was phenomenal and the flavors went together extremely well.

    Unfortunately the prices are sky high. If you eat kosher, I'm sure you know that is expected of any kosher restaurant. If you're a newbie, just keep that in mind. Prices aside, the quality of food is fantastic. I would definitely return.

      As Mark would say, "a curious tasting place". Overall decent food, but can often lead to an upset stomach.
    They are usually out of at least something that you want, but I don't expect the highest things from them.
    I'm still not sure why this place is hyped over, I guess the standards are getting lower every day. I mean, the food is definitely good, but by no means is this a 5 star quality place.
    If I were to recommend something, I can't put my finger on it right now, but there IS something that should be done. Maybe a couple things .. this place has a lot of potential though. Perhaps they should give Mark a call for some suggestions.
    Also — many of the workers are very kind and hard working people. Some stay up until past 3:00AM cleaning …

    2.55/5

    Also, you're not getting so much for your purchase. A bit overpriced!
    Horrific falafel!!

      Well, after shopping at Amazing Savings we decided to try Grill Point as we love Middle
    Eastern fare. We sat at the tables and ordered hummus and a falafel sandwich on pita. Our lunch also included choices from the salad bar. The homemade creamy hummus was beautifully presented and drizzled with tahini. It was accompanied by a freshly baked pita just out of the oven. The green on the inside falafel balls were crunchy and not greasy at all. The fries were also tasty. Although the food was spectacular what we enjoyed most was our friendly waitress and patrons and their many beautiful children. We were made to feel as if we were regulars. I will tell you, Grill Point is On Point!

  •   Came back to Grill Point after a year with an unstoppable craving for shawarma. I forgot what was better by this point, the baby chicken or lamb. Lamb. I copped out on a chicken shawarmizzle and my girlfriend got a lamb. After chowing down our food and trying each others, I came to the conclusion that the lamb is the way to go. The fries and salad on the side are great add ons, although I didn't have room to finish everything. The portions are just right, although, I wish I could just by a shawarma minus the fries :/ Anywho, I'll deff be back. This is my go-to shawarma spot for life!

      I'm happy I found this spot thanks to a friend who's Jewish and mainly eats kosher. This is a small restaurant but fits a lot of people this seems like a place great place to have family dinners. I ordered mango juice and chicken shawarma and my friend ordered chicken shawarma and hummus. First off the hummus was excellent and so was the food! There's as a do-it-yourself salad bar that comes free with your meal.

    The waiters were very friendly and the food came out very fast. I definitely plan on returning especially since the restaurant is clean and quiet enough to have a peaceful dinner and hear the person next to you speak.

      Grill Point is pricey but the portions are huge and it really tastes amazing. Because of the prices, I stick to the pita sandwiches which come with French fries and a do-it yourself salad from their salad bar for $13. When I get this for lunch, I don't have to eat dinner or I have to save half for dinner because it's so filling. My favorite thing to get is the ADANA KEBAB. It's a ground lamb sausage that's grilled on a skewer. Add some hummus, tahini, parsley, and roasted eggplant for toppings and thank me later. It's really that delicious. Other great options are the baby chicken shwarma pita, lamb & turkey shwarma pita, and the lamb and beef kebabs in a pita. From the salad bar, I've only gotten the cucumber salad and the red cabbage slaw but everything looks very good. Their meat and potato soup is also very good. I also want to try their laffa, green pilaf, stuffed peppers, and couscous with chicken some day. Highly recommend Grill Point to everyone.

    Price- expensive
    Shwarma heaven- $15 for a big shwarma on homemade lavash bread. Can be enough for two. Choose baby chicken, lamb or turkey, chopped salad, hummus, tahini and french fries all wrapped up in bread. Free side salad choices from salad bar.

  •   This is a great spot to stop by and grab a bite however my greatest concern is that there is not enough seating. I come here often and the only spot available is by the garbage can and not many want to sit and eat their food by the garbage can. In fact I came once just to grab the Shawarma pita however there was no seating and I had to sit down by the quote on quote restaurants section and pay  $40 for something that I usually get for 10. All of this because there was no seating available. Also their mashed potato is very watery down it tasted very strange. Other than that there is a strange smell like an uncleanliness smell coming from the back however the food is really good.

      Just ordered take outfood and spent ninety dollars,  asked for my Israeli salad to be on the side, something that comes with the sandwich anyway, I was told that I had to pay for it by separately by three different servers. New owners just dont get it, think they cornered the market. Been going there for twenty years or so, at least once a month, last few times nothing but disappointment. Sad.

  •   Delicious! The chicken shawarma here is sooo good! The best I have had in the neighborhood. They have a great salad bar to choose from,and its always fresh. My husband, and I always have chicken shawarma with laffa& hummus. It is pricey here,and dont like the fact that their seating area isnt so good. Its more costly to have the dine in service. Still we always manage to find a seat and enjoy! Their service is good. Truthfully most kosher places are pricey, still I believe its worth it here. Very delicious, and always hits the spot.

      This place is usually busy, it has a waited section and a self order section. I came here last week and ordered a laffa with chicken. I was only able to eat half of it it made me full really quick. However the laffa bread was a little rubbery this time and was a little tough to chew. But other than that a great place to dine.

  •   This is flat out AMAZING. I've never had a bad experience and I've been coming here often. I've ordered about 5 kinds of eggplant dishes, 5 different salads, hummus 3 ways, lamb done two ways, chicken done three different ways, morroccan cigars, slaws and vegetable dishes. Every single thing was absolutely delicious and portions huge. I would drive from anywhere anytime to eat here. It's Kosher so they have burgers but you won't get cheese. The French fries are awesome too. I love that it's so healthy and so tasty you'd never think you're eating straight up good-for-you food. Please go here. Please. You're missing out if you haven't.

      No one welcomed us to sit down waited on the line later found out it was to go line. Then waiter told us to just sit anywhere. Shawarma and the chocolate cake was good  but service needs to improve it is very poor. Fafal and mash potatoes suck!!! If i go back I will only go back for shawarma.

      Anyone who goes to Queens College knows damn well about the miserable state of food on or near campus. I've been here a handful of times, the meat is very expensive. When I came here initially I paid like $24 for the baby chicken shawarma. Now I just get the falafel, which comes with a lot of food, fries, and salad for about $7. I think its pretty tasty.
