Its on a different level... The pastrami sandwich on rye is juicy, tender, and very delicous (highly recommended, big portion). The Reuben sandwich was below average in my opinion. Beware of the ticket when you enter dont lose it.

This is by far best place for real good deli sandwiches. The quality of meats and bread are great, portions are large and hand cut. Just fantastic corn beef, pastrami and salami sandwiches to begin with . Pi Kyle etc are all fantastic too

True New York deli experience. Super huge sandwiches with matching prices. Absolutely delicious and worth the indulgence. Friendly folks with a unique ordering system. Would definitely revisit if ever in town again.

So busy and a little chaotic but once you have the food you can see why it attracts huge crowds. I went for the cheesesteak which was amazing but I regret not trying the pastrami sandwich too. Suppose I need to head over again...

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up

bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
