  •   I was very impressed by their lamb and turkey shawarma the first time I went there. This time I got the baby chicken shawarma (and I really am not a big chicken fan) and it was so good that I had to sit down to write this review. I also got the french fries which I love. They are more on the soggy side than the crunchy side, which I love, but some might not like them that way. And they have a real earthy (potato-ey) taste to them. I also got a side order of baba ganoush which was so creamy and rich that I thought they might have put mayo in so I googled the recipe. I don't think they did but this was the best baba ganoush that I have had. Everything that I ordered was a hit and I love the cole slaw and the purple cabbage slaw at the little bar in the front. Great food at this place. Parking is also not bad if you cross Main Street, there is parking right on Jewel Avenue. I got lucky and got a spot right in front of restaurant.

      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.

  •   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

      I've been eat at this place for years food is finger licking good from the bread to the meat down to the salad is always amazing and never a let down.
    Aside from all that the place closes at midnight but there is a clean up crew till 3am making sure the place a spotless and food is fresh for the next day shift. Service is always always amazing very giving on extras just for a simply smile on your face.  

    Who ever you are Marcy I think your an idiot for giving such a negative review and say the pita was cold. They make the pita in house every day fresh. All you really had to do is ask for it to be toasted.

      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.

  •   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 .

      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.

      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!

  •   Greeting- at counter
    Vibe- dirty
    Parking- Street
    BR- Fail
    Service- fast at counter
    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.
    WIGB? Yes

      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.

  •   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!

      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

      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.

      Grill point is on point.
    Awesome shawarma, got the baby schwarma on lafa with all the fixins. Large portion.
    Only wish the white sauce was slightly thicker.
    Seating is minimal unless you're sitting down and ordering from a waitress. Keep that in mind.

      Good schwarma. Crispier. Pricey for a plate although the portion is huge. The pita definitely looks better as the sides for my plates didn't taste too great.

  •   Best and most authentic Israeli shawarma in town!! Quick service too. What I disliked was the fact that it's always packed and not enough seating. I definitely will be coming back for more 🙂

      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

      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.

  •   I would have not even given them a star. Not only did they not get my order right but we waited an hour an a half. With a $5 delivery charge and that doesn't even go to the delivery guy. Basically never ordering from them again.

      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?

  •   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
    Thank you

      So my co-worker swears by this place! He goes multiple times a week and encouraged me to try it.  Told the hub about it and he was like oh yeah I've been there before it is good! So off we went. The place was crowded and the patrons looked pleased. We took our order to go. It was my first time eating shwarma and it will be my last. I mean I don't have anything to compare it to, but I guess I was expecting something like a gyro. It wasn't. The spices were so over powering for my palate. Such a strong taste I couldn't take more than a few bites. So I don't know if it was good or not. My experience was limited to this place but it doesn't make me want to venture out and try a different spot if this is supposed to be the best spot.
