Some of my earliest memories of great Deli are form Snowden Delicatessen in Montreal. Centre Street Deli takes all of the recipes and quality of Snowden and transplants it perfectly to Thornhill. If you like Montreal Deli then this is the place to go. There are a few items that are a must at this restaurant. The club roll with... More

The food is always good, the service is excellent and the price is as expected. The only negative is the decor, which could use a little bit of refurbishment. Not a lot but maybe some booths and fresh paint.

If you love Montreal Smoked Meat, this is the place for you! Great food and takeout. Fast service. I ordered the Deli special which is a large hot hand cut smoked meat sandwich with amazing fries, coleslaw and a pickle. One if my friend had the cabbage rolls which she said were great. They had a lot if meat and... More

If you love "Montreal style" deli type restaurants... then look no further. "Real" Montreal smoked meat (beef for those who don't know) piled high on rye bread! Great fries! Great coleslaw (oil / vinegar, not creamy) and kosher-style pickles. A meal truly designed to make your blood pressure rise both from the salt and the delicious-ness of the event! Their... More

This place is an institution in this neighborhood and is a gem. Cheryl runs a tight ship and Sam keeps the best food coming. Tommy keeps it all going whenever Sam or Cheryl are not there. The wait staff is there to be sure you have a good time. They are attentive and rarely miss anything. There is something to... More

Hadn't been there in 5 years and was looking forward to it as there is no such thing as a decent Jewish deli in Vancouver . Somewhere along they have lost their way. The only meat they put up is the corned beef. They bring in the smoked meat from Montreal. I guess that's why some others have raved about... More

Any trip to Toronto should include a visit to this deli. Coming from the west coast I can only compare their smoked meat to really fine sushi. It melts in your mouth, fantastic taste and it is the pinnacle of a deli meat sandwich. Service was friendly and great as well.

Although this is a great place for deli sandwiches, I particularly love the Greek Salad. Everything I've ever had at this family-oriented deli was delicious. Comfortable atmosphere and friendly service! It's a favourite place for my family and I.

Of course, I am biased, being an ex-Montrealer! Cheryl and her crew have the best old-fashioned smoked meat this side of St. Laurent Avenue (home of Schwartz's famous ddeli).

Whenever I get my smoked meat fix that needs to be addressed, the centre street special done medium on rye is always the wtg. My kids are not into smoked meat, so happily enjoy the grilled cheese sandwiches with fries on challah bread, and it is the real thing as well. To sum up, the best smoked meat is still... More
