Made me move to an even worse table than the one the gave me because an incoming lunch rush was anticipated. It was already 1pm and the place was empty. I left. I think they thought I was a Nazi just because I shave my head and were exhibiting bigotry. The menu was dull. Typical overpriced deli stuff and a... More

I was here on a food trail by a local friend who says that this place is very famous in town We ordered the smoked meat sandwich and poutine to share which were amazing! They have like six different type of mustard that is available in your table that you can have it with your food. Services are great and... More

We went here on a Sunday for lunch. It was full with a small line-up but service was prompt and friendly. Zane himself said hello as he recognized one of my friends. Old deli atmosphere in a relatively new establishment.The knish was good and I enjoyed the latkes, but the portions are average and I would say smaller than expected... More

This is a review for the terminal 3 location. I was really looking forward to eating here, but the food was distinctly average, even poor, and the service was erratic. I had the beef sandwich with soup and cokeslaw(for an additional $4). The soup was served in the tiniest teacup I had ever seen- cheap hotel buffets have bigger cups.... More

We went early and got a seat and there was a queue when we left. Only one waitress for such a busy time but she was very nice, patient and smiling despite obviously quite hard pressed. We had the Reuben sandwich, beef brisket and leaning towers. I wanted to try Jewish food and this comes out on my search....not sure... More

This deli in Terminal Three served us well on two recent stopovers. Friendly, cheerful staff who can move quickly to have a full breakfast on the table or a late supper in front of you before the next leg of your trip. Limited menu with a deli feel (e.g., smoked meat, bagels and lox) but room to accommodate other tastes... More

The only reason I am giving it a two star is because the food was good. I went to the counter and ordered a plain chicken sandwich. I was asked to wait by the counter. No instructions nothing, here's your number now wait. I wondered why I was not asked to sit down at the many tables open with others... More

At least Pearson is making some changes away from regular fast food fare to make the 3 hour wait to take off more agreeable. Had the Meatloaf sandwich which was very moist, almost to the point of being too moist. Found it to be very tasty and the red pepper was a nice flavor addition. M/B had the all day... More

This is the second time that I've eaten here. The first time (a few years back), I enjoyed their smoked meat sandwich and I even bought a few pounds of it to bring home. On the second visit, I was planning on doing the same, but I found the sandwich dry. We order medium fat, but either it was lean... More
