  •   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!!

      This place is fabulous- amazing israeli and middle eastern food – and the ambiance is fun and reflective of the surrounding Jewish neighborhood. The platters seem too pricey (mid twenty dollar range- seriously, what extras would you want that isn't included in the serve yourself salad bar, delicious homemade fries, homemade bread and hummus that come with a sandwich). I had the shish kebab sandwich and every element of the meal was insanely good. Love it.

      Dropped in to grab some shawarma and loved the  combo meal they offer. It's plenty food to share for a decent price. Everything is kosher!! The chicken shawarma was delicious with the choice of whatever salads you want inside the laffa and a choice of side. There are seats for  take out and to order with server who was very attentive! Overall I had great experience with delicious food and service and lastly a full and happy tummy.

  •   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 a good place on main st. While they are a bit pricey for what they give you they really a good place to have lunch or dinner. They have a variety of Mediterranean food, as well as a nice salad bar

      The shwarma here melts in your mouth .  The best in town . The lafa bread is yumm And quite filling . They have a nice self service salad bar that comes with your sandwich . I  rather take out than sit in . I find the servers  here are way slow . Also  try the kuba it's a  really good appetizer .

  •   Like many, I rely on Yelp reviews to eat at some new places. Yelp.. You failed me this time.. I'm not one to leave bad reviews, but this was just disappointing and just think you should all be informed. Maybe I just had a bad experience; but I'll try to be as honest as possible. To begin, the food was very expensive, the chicken shawarma was a little over $11. But the place was pretty crowded, and hey; the reviews were great; so the food must be worth it right ?

    WRONG. The chicken was not cooked enough, my friend couldn't eat his because he thought it was raw. The hummus was not bad actually. But again; that chicken.. It's sad that they put a lot, and usually that's a good thing, but in this case I had to eat a lot of something I didn't like. The fries that come with it caught my eyes, they looked good but the looks deceived me. They were soggy, not cooked enough, and just hard to enjoy.

    If you're rich, and don't care much for quality taste, then enjoy. But if you're only willing to spend good money for good food, I highly suggest you avoid this place.

      One of the best chicken shawarma around!!!! Delicious fresh lafa and pita, awesome salad bar, excellent fresh tasting hummus, great staff who is both attentive and courteous. Overall a great place to eat especially when hungry. If you can't make the trip to Israel then this is second best! I am never disappointed here and its worth my 40 min trip every single time. You won't be disappointed!

  •   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!

  •   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.

      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!

      I drive from sheepshead bay Brooklyn 30-40 mins to eat here.  Best kosher meat place in NYC. Service is amazing. One of the cleanest restaurants I've been to.  Try it and then Remember how I said
    "best kosher meat"

      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.

      Great shawarma. Love it. The portions are fairly large. The one thing I don't get is- if you are dining in, the price is higher and that doesn't include tips. However, the food is great. We get it there every time we want a shawarma. Definitely make it there and try their shawarma.

  •   I only tried the Shawana on pita which comes with a salad you build yourself and fries, it was really good and extremely filling. I can't wait to try their hummus.

      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?

      Had brunch today at this Glatt Kosher spot. The food looked great from outside and the place was situated exactly where we had parked after a morning of shopping.
    We ordered two turkey & lamb shawarmas and the falafel
    The service was very slow   The food though Fresh was tasteless. I had to keep adding condiments which I hate to do. My pita was cold but I did not complain. My brothers flatbread was freshly baked and still warm but again flat in taste too. I did not even bother to taste the falafel. They one good thing was the Cole slaw. It was delectable. The pickles were good too. My brother and Sisterinlaw seemed to enjoy their shawarmas.
    Needless to say I will not return.

      Good spot, I really like the food and always get it to go. The ones that do work here it is funny try and give an attitude or whatever but it doesn't really work because I don't give them the chance. Basic let me get a shawarma on Lafay bread that's it and give them my money. I don't need no smile or hospitality because I take it to go and the ones actually cooking the food are on point so can't complain. That's why I always tip them;     none of them are attractive so I don't get it ? Haha

  •   Went in for Shawarma with friends. The staff was friendly and the food was amazing. It was very filling. I probably should of left some for a second meal later. We will definitely be going there again real soon! PS – their homemade hummus is finger licking good!

      The food here is exceptional and very fresh! I've been a local customer here for years, popping in for lunch 1 or 2 times a week and the food has always been on point!! I highly recommend the beef steak on laffa bread and the shawarma!

      Best kosher restaurant in queens by far. My family and I have been eating there for years since they have opened. Their food is always fresh and yummy to eat. My little nephews always enjoy their kids menu. Very family oriented restaurant. Recommend to anyone who is interested in shawarma in pita

      This place is one of my favorites… my buddies and I have been going here together for almost 10 years. I always get the kofta kebab on laffa with hummus and some spicy sauce. It never disappoints – I am drooling as I am typing this, days later…

    The shawarma is extremely popular here. Consider going early because availability varies as you get closer to closing.
