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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

A friend of mine and his father brought me here to try kosher Israeli food for the first time in my life. To be honest, I had no idea what to expect or what to order. They recommended that I try the baby chicken shawarma. No you are not served a baby chicken.. atleast I hope not :).
I ordered the baby chicken shawarma wrap. The meal comes with free access to the salad bar – definitely take advantage! It's not your typical salad bar. You get all sorts of different salads (red cabbage, israeli salad, etc). Great option to get some fiber in your meal. Anyways the wrap arrived – it's a delicious pita bread wrap filled with chicken, fries, cucumbers, hummus, etc. I loved it. The pita bread was phenomenal and the flavors went together extremely well.
Unfortunately the prices are sky high. If you eat kosher, I'm sure you know that is expected of any kosher restaurant. If you're a newbie, just keep that in mind. Prices aside, the quality of food is fantastic. I would definitely return.

Good Food Nice service somebody like to eat again over the screen and beautiful location and beautiful place and the people nice on the system is wonderful

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.

Best shwarma known to man kind! Strongly recommend to try this place.

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
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.

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.
Mary C. 10/29/2017
terrible ! overpriced… quality of food not so great. service just didn't seem to care.
Angela O. 2/12/2015
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.
Edna C. 5/08/2017
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.

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
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!

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.

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.

Excellent food ! Will always go when in the neighborhood ! If you are into middle eastern food don't hesitate ..
Elle S. 3/16/2016
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
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
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!
Tal S. 3/15/2018
I had the baby chicken shawarma which was delicious,in a fresh laffa bread!
Salads were tasty and fresh..
Prices are decent and service is nice as well.
Daniel J. 12/27/2017
Delicious! The chicken shawarma here is sooo good! The best I have had in the neighborhood. They have a great salad bar to choose from,and its always fresh. My husband, and I always have chicken shawarma with laffa& hummus. It is pricey here,and dont like the fact that their seating area isnt so good. Its more costly to have the dine in service. Still we always manage to find a seat and enjoy! Their service is good. Truthfully most kosher places are pricey, still I believe its worth it here. Very delicious, and always hits the spot.
Sofya M. 3/25/2015
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
June S. 11/10/2017
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.
