Description: Tock's in an award-winning Montreal-style deli serving smoked meat sandwiches and all the fixings (including authentic poutine!). These specialties are all prepared in-house from the finest ingredients. A nice selection of beers and wines also. For lunch, brunch or dinner, a great choice for smoked meat comfort food! (Nice salads and vegetarian options too.)

“The Real Deal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

If you long for a taste of a genuine deli like back in New York (or Montreal in this case), Tock's is the only game in town. Brian Tock smokes the meats here in Shanghai. Just thinking about it makes my stomach rumble! And the best fries in all of Shanghai to boot. Best to come early as there are no reservations.

“Makes me feel like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

I am an expat from New York and Tock's reminds me of all of the New York Delis. The Motzah ball soup is great for non- Kosher Jews. The atmosphere is hip an exciting, but in a way smooth and gentle. The pastrami is heaven. I would highly recommend this place that is even good enough for a king!

“Decent food, poor service.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Had the combination sandwich with duck meat, chicken meat and beef in my sandwich. The chips were nice and the beef was soft and fatty. Overall the food was good. However, something that I picked up on was the customer service by the owner (I presume). The owner went around the restaurant talking to all the Caucasian people asking how their meals were. When he got to our table, he simply walked off without even acknowledging us. I was quite disgusted and noticed that all the Asians in the restaurant did not get the same kind of service and I am utterly appalled by this fact. Will simply not come here again because I was judged by my colour.

“Great Sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Wanted to try something new for lunch. This is a great place. The owner Brian was very personable, explained the differences in the meat. I had the Chicken sandwich. The chicken was all white meat, cut thin and seasoned perfectly. It was served on a very soft, warm wheat bread. Sandwich came with great homemade fries and some slaw. The staff was cordial.
The kitchen is open, so you can see what is going on. The establishment was clean and inviting.
Will bring my family back!
