Food was very good. A little pricey. Service was terrible . People were not friendly. Had to ask for everything.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.
Ron G. 4/18/2018
Simple and quick place for some take out hummus and falafels. Meats were cooked well and veggies were fresh.
Andy R. 12/05/2017
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.
Bella B. 3/18/2018
Excellent food ! Will always go when in the neighborhood ! If you are into middle eastern food don't hesitate ..
Elle S. 3/16/2016
I LOVE THEIR FOOD !!! BEST SHAWARMA IN TOWN. Prices are terrible.
Reduce the prices a little, it wouldn't bankrupted you. Don't be greedy, keep making these amazing wraps and Lafas.

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.
J C. 5/01/2016
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!
Beth V. 8/03/2017
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.

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.

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!
Zack A. 5/14/2015
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.
Lillian B. 3/29/2016
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.
Dacia B. 8/24/2016
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.

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.
Aric F. 5/23/2016
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.
roman d. 6/14/2016
Love their shwarma but it's so pricey! It's over $12 to get a shwarma. But I justify it by the fact that it's kosher and yummy!
Eli T. 11/16/2014
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!

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
Eden A. 11/30/2017
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
Ali J. 1/21/2015
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.
