  •   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. 🙂

      My last experience at grill point was horrible
    I had a pita shawarma that was without taste.

    I've been there many times,and was never disappointed,maybe the owners was changed,but they need to step up to the
    taste they had before.

      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!

  •   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.

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

      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 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.

      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 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.

  •   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 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!

      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.

  •   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!

      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 🙂

      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.

  •   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!

      Good food. As a Taiwanese, I was really worried before I Walk into the store but end up the food was amazing. We ordered the mixed and mushroom and eggplant as sides. Said bar was good too. Meats especially chicken was very juicy. Good service too.

      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.

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

      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

  •   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!

      No one welcomed us to sit down waited on the line later found out it was to go line. Then waiter told us to just sit anywhere. Shawarma and the chocolate cake was good  but service needs to improve it is very poor. Fafal and mash potatoes suck!!! If i go back I will only go back for shawarma.

      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.
