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

I decided to drive the extra 45 minutes in order to go to Centre Street Deli for dinner. My total travel time to get there was 2 hours. I ordered two old fashioned on rye with no mustard. I added that I wanted "no mustard anywhere near the sandwiches". The person taking my order asked if I wanted it medium... More

We've stopped at Centre Street Deli many times for lunch and always start with the matzo ball soup. It might be the best in the GTA. The omelets are also very good, and the warm pastrami on rye is absolutely wonderful. We've never had a bad meal here. There's almost always a wait if you arrive during peak hours, and... More

It's not near my home, but it's certainly worth the drive to Thornhill. I have yet to try anything on the menu that hasn't left me totally satisfied, but if I had to pick one thing (besides their Old Fashioned Smoked Meat), I'd have to say Salami & Eggs. My very favorite breakfast. They cook it to perfection and add... More

I went here for lunch with a friend. I do appreciate a deli, so this was recommended as the best in Toronto. I totally agree, it far exceeded my expectations, which were high to start with. Had the smoked meat (medium) with a greek salad, the greek salad was huge and shared but wasn't cheap. Overall, good value because the... More

Baby beef hand cut out of this world. Needs to be renovated. The food is never hot enough. The location should be more exposed you can't find it if your driving.
