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

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.

This is a good place on main st. While they are a bit pricey for what they give you they really a good place to have lunch or dinner. They have a variety of Mediterranean food, as well as a nice salad bar

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!

A hidden gem in my area , Baby Chicken Pita loaded , salad hummus & skhug tahini sauce both add so much flavor and their fries are prefect thick cut

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.

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.

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. 🙂

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!

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

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.

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.

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!

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 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.

You can't go wrong
Freshly made hummus

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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
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 🙂
David Y. 12/10/2015
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 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"
Danny D. 9/09/2016
Great place for any kind of middle eastern food !!
Shawarma is amazing , salads and falafel is nothing but perfect .
adam v. 3/23/2016
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.
