I ordered a take-out triple decker. The good…I gave them a second star because the meat was tender (what there was of it) and the staff was very polite. They gave a generous portion of pickles and cole slaw. The bad…When I got it home,...the sandwich looked kind of thin. I don’t normally do this, but I weighed it. They advertise ¾ pound and this wasn’t close. The only thing that was ¾ was the pastrami being ¾ fat (maybe they had a bad piece?). The chopper liver (albeit it was tasty), was closer to a thin shmear than a scoop. I suppose I long for the old days when a kosher deli gave those big, fat sandwiches with the best cuts of meat. Those were worth every penny. I can’t say that this sandwich, @$27, is worth anywhere near that amount.More

We came for a few snacks forgetting that it was the first day of Hanukkah lol. The place was packed. I have a soft spot for pickled salmon and it is delicious here. Everything is great, including the 2 hotdog lunch special, take out only.

This place is by far the best to eat for any type of pastrami or corn beef food. The waitresses are terrific and we love their free salads and pickles which are so delicious!!!

Unfortunately, today we laid my cousin to rest. We went to The Kosher Nosh for repass. Originally, my uncle made a reservation for 25. We ended up being so many more then that. Do you ever actually know how many people will show up? The...staff was rude and unaccommodating. They turned away about 15 young adults and almost turned my immediate family away. My uncle, who just lost his 21 year old son, wanted to explain he would be the one paying for the now party of 40. The one person the waitress should have been nice to, she treated disrespectfully and without compassion. Also, as Jews, we have made and ate plenty of amazing kosher food and theirs was a thoroughly dissatisfying meal with small portions, NO taste and very high prices.More

While visiting New Jersey we had a craving for some good Kosher Deli. This was the place to go! We shared a Pastrami Sandwich on Rye (plenty big!), a potato Knish and each got the salad bar. Yum! The waitress was friendly and efficient. Little...wait time for our food. Would come back when in the area!More

Met very good retired friends from work for a lunch that we had planned for months. The Nosh reminds me of the best memories for a Kosher Deli experience that could be found in the Bronx many years ago. Don’t let the strip mall location...fool you - the food is fresh and plentiful. I had a Reuben (reminded by our waitress, without cheese) with sauerkraut and Russian dressing. Add a cream soda and a full salad bar, (pickles, slaw, potato salad +), and we had the perfect lunch with a chance to reminisce. The wait staff is friendly, helpful and ready to ensure that the experience is unforgettable. And, based on the full tables and constant clientele activity, the locals know that they have a real gem. (Check out the menu on line). We’re already planning a return visit.More

Heard about this place from friends so we decided to try. It didn't disappoint. We had Pastrami sandwich to die for and excellent potato pancakes. I loved the pickle bar. The waitress was a pleasure and so delightful to deal with. All around great experience!

We stayed for a sit down dinner, nice menu, nice little salad bar, nice waitresses, big sandwich and Israeli pot roast. Delicious lean meats, prepared perfectly, a little gravy French fries and potato pancake, carrots. Really good home style meal if I could cook. By...the way their soups, fish and deli are really impressive, I always bring home a quart of half sour pickles with my soup. Hot dog is gone before I get home. PS ask for extra mustard really nice.More

Sometimes I come on TripAdvisor to read reviews of places I’ve already been and reviewed, like this place. My family has been coming to The Kosher Nosh since I am a tiny child. I’m now thirty, and this is still a place we absolutely must...get food from, even if once in awhile. My previous review was that of a child. I’ve grown up and graduated from turkey sandwiches on rye with Russian dressing to the pastrami—which I was introduced to when the staff accidentally gave me someone’s heated pastrami on rye with Russian. The staff had and has never messed up an order in my entire life, so I take it as God showing me something I absolutely needed to see. I would say I’ve eaten almost everything here from burgers, deli meats (even the tongue!), sides, soups and of course the amazing pickles. It’s all delicious. When I move out of the area, I miss it. When I’m back, I stop by to get it. The same people are still working there since I’m young. The loyalty and legacy of The Kosher Nosh are apparent. Sure, it can get pricy. However, the food is quality, fresh, and consistent. Even if I have to wait for a pay day, it’s worth it. I relive my childhood here. This food comes with memories, and it’s so damn good.More
