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 🙂

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.

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 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"

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

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.

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 haven't been here for a while but let me tell you the food here is so good I came all the way from the other side of queens. Their Sharna's are delicious. With your sandwich you get all the condiments.
R. K. 4/07/2016
Amazing food, the guys working here are great, and their baby chicken is the best! Also they have an amazing lunch menu, salad, soup and main course under $15, can't beat that.
Anil K. 2/25/2017
This is the best place for falafel and middle eastern food in Flushing and forest hills area. A must try if you are in queens
CJ V. 11/15/2015
Probably the best Shawarma in the United States of America
Soft and delicious perfectly marinated shawarma
Hand cut french fries
You can't go wrong
Freshly made hummus
Rafael K. 4/07/2017
Great food. The ambience is okay and the place is kind of small… But if you're on near main st. and want to go out for some good Mediterranean food, this is the place. 🙂
Shani M. 1/26/2015
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
Great great shawarma

Highly recommend to family and friends
Aviad M. 1/15/2017
Best chicken shawarma I've ever had.
Absolutely awesome salad bar featuring tons of different hamutzim.
Jake M. 1/29/2015
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
Simple and quick place for some take out hummus and falafels. Meats were cooked well and veggies were fresh.
Andy R. 12/05/2017
great place for kosher food… always fresh great service… the lamb shawarma is amazing. expensive food on the menu but very big portions so I guess you getting what you paying for.
the best homus and tahini that you can get!!
Robert S. 7/09/2015
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
Solomon H. 6/20/2016
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
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
Very delicious food. Courteous waitresses and given liberal amounts of pita for wait.
Jason R. 6/14/2017
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

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
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.

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!
Suzanne B. 2/07/2016
Food was very good. A little pricey. Service was terrible . People were not friendly. Had to ask for everything.
David S. 8/12/2016
Not a big fan of kosher food but there are way better places then this one.
I specifically didn't like there turkey shawarma there sandwiches are too greasy. They barely put meat inside the sandwich and I can say 2/3 of the sandwich is filled with salad. The fries are okay but it seems like they constantly re-use the same cooking oil. Definitely a good place to try but there are better shawarma places.
DrizzyBaby S. 8/02/2017
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.
