“Quick easy stand up or take away”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

A quick nosh on the way to one of the theaters that surround this tiny deli. Usual fare offered, including sandwiches, pannini, and desserts. No tables, just a thin bar you can stand at. Food is tasty and priced as per usual.

“Very touristy”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

If you like having your breakfast with only average food and a lot of loud music - this is for you.
We did come in with a large group - but orders were cold wrong and the food not much above average - small portion of over done bacon - eggs were cold etc.
Service was very slow - not the waiters problems becasue they had to sing - Anyway unless you are an absolut e tourist you can do much better.

“If you want a fun experience!”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Food is good but the singing waiters and waitresses our very entertaining. We always go here when we are in NY. Just a fun place to eat!!

“Excellent food.”
Reviewed May 26, 2008

This is a great deli. Mostly locals eat at this place. I would say it is the best deli in NYC. I visit NYC frequently and have ate at several delis. This is the best. There is no place to eat so you have to grab it and go. During lunch it is pretty crowded but fast moving. Somewhat of a language barrier exists between you and the staff. However, if you speak clearly and don't hold them up you will have great service. They are all very friendly and you cannot find better food anywhere else!
