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!

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!

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!

Grill Point is pricey but the portions are huge and it really tastes amazing. Because of the prices, I stick to the pita sandwiches which come with French fries and a do-it yourself salad from their salad bar for $13. When I get this for lunch, I don't have to eat dinner or I have to save half for dinner because it's so filling. My favorite thing to get is the ADANA KEBAB. It's a ground lamb sausage that's grilled on a skewer. Add some hummus, tahini, parsley, and roasted eggplant for toppings and thank me later. It's really that delicious. Other great options are the baby chicken shwarma pita, lamb & turkey shwarma pita, and the lamb and beef kebabs in a pita. From the salad bar, I've only gotten the cucumber salad and the red cabbage slaw but everything looks very good. Their meat and potato soup is also very good. I also want to try their laffa, green pilaf, stuffed peppers, and couscous with chicken some day. Highly recommend Grill Point to everyone.

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

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.

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
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.
Melissa V. 1/11/2018
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.

I genuinely love this place. My friend introduced me to this bc she can only eat at kosher food restaurants. I am up for anything and so glad I am! I ordered the baby chicken shwarma on a pita. It was amazing and it comes with side fries and unlimited amount of veggies! The french fries are thick cut and are crispy~ the shawrma is warm and they even ask you if you want hummus veggies and hot sauce. The veggie section are usually some hot pepper pickles, purple coleslaw (purple cabbage?), regular coleslaw and some more veggies. Lol, i'm not too familiar with their names, just trust me and try a bit of each!
The onlllllyyy bad thing about this is that, if you're not sitting in the formal dining area, the casual sitting place is very small. As in, the tables are kind of close together but if you want to sit, youll just have to politely ask the people near to give you more room.
I like this place, I always go back with my friend! Planning to bring my bf here.

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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
terrible ! overpriced… quality of food not so great. service just didn't seem to care.
Angela O. 2/12/2015
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
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.
Michelle B. 3/07/2016
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.

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.
