Had falafel platter a bit pricy for falafel which was good . Tried to substitute 2 sides for the better salads (eggplant etc..) they said no do for 14dollars no hummus or even a little sampler of hummus baba eggplant
I got decent Israeli salad and a selection of dead salads from pickle section.
Tehina very watered down
Shawarma looks excellent will be going back.
Don't be so cheap with your salads not everyone eats potatoes

Great place to grab a bite! Amazing shawarma! Been going here for a little while now and they haven't disappointed me once yet so far! See you soon

Very delicious food. Courteous waitresses and given liberal amounts of pita for wait.

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

Expensive but the food is heavenly and worth it. It's a bit small but I totally recommend!!! The guys who make the food are friendly and pleasant which is nice. I will keep coming back and I highly recommend

Not the best atmosphere but very good food. I loved the hummus and chicken Shwarma. Our waitress was extremely helpful and guided us on what to order. If you like middle eastern food I would recommend this place.

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.

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!

I like this place. Good food. Nice staff. A bit expensive for what it is but the quality is good so you really can't complain. It's definitely worth a try if you like middle eastern cuisine.

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.

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 .

I love going there with my friend
The food is great
The only reason I gave them 4 stars not 5
Because the service on the week days is not that good the witnesses are not attentive
I love the waitress who works on Sunday she always smile and ask if u need anything even when she is super busy
I wish the owner will talk to the waitresses who work on Wednesday to be more attentive to the customers

Simple and quick place for some take out hummus and falafels. Meats were cooked well and veggies were fresh.

Best chicken shawarma I've ever had.
Absolutely awesome salad bar featuring tons of different hamutzim.

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.

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.

Coming from a person that grew up with Shwarma, tdoesn't compare to what you will get over seas. However, it is pretty good. The laffa can be very filling and the portions are generous. Great for when you get the craving and aren't able to fly over night across the world for a shwarma.
Sean K. 2/18/2017
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!
Tal S. 3/15/2018
Food is awesome! Fresh everything, great deal too! Came to this place when it was Hapina like 15 years ago. Stopped in the way back from NYC…great ideA!

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.

Great service !! Super friendly staff always Accommodating their clients .. The showarma is never dry or old I been going to this place for over 10 years and they have never failed to provide the best quality .

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.
Jane S. 2/29/2016
Excellent food ! Will always go when in the neighborhood ! If you are into middle eastern food don't hesitate ..
Elle S. 3/16/2016
No question . . . . This is the "Go To" place for Israeli food in the City of New York – Maybe, even the City of New York – I'm not kidding . . . . . Its very good. The Manager "Mickey" is a great guy. Ask for "Deni" & "Melky" – these are the guys who prepared your food. Act tough when you walk in and order your food with "Conviction" 😉 the other customers can be a bit rough and pushy 😉 LOL!
Louis R. 12/06/2015
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.
Daniel S. 2/26/2017
Stay away from this place!!! The food is alright but the waiters are rude and obnoxious. They would not seat us at an open table and then refused to let us order from the cashier. Instead they tries making us stand by the register for 15 minutes until a table was open and tried forcing ua to order througn a waitress so that she wouldnt lose her tips. Will not be hoing back here any time soon.
Moshe B. 6/07/2015
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.
Sofia N. 11/20/2014
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!
