This is probably the restaurant I most wanted to go to in the world. It was all a little chaotic and busy but it added to the experience and with lots of lines it didn't take too long to get served. The pastrami sandwich was absolutely delicious. My only disappointment was that it wasn't bigger- it was certainly big but the reviews had given me the impression it was the biggest sandwich in the world.

Will never forget that I had the opportunity to go.

Amazing sandwiches and a great atmosphere.
TIP: don't lose or destroy your ticket before paying, they all need to be handed in when paying or pay the forfeit $50 for a lost ticket!

Huge sandwiches - easy to share between 2. A great deli, many choices and a great experience.
We went for the food, then realised when we got there that it is 'the place with THAT scene from When Harry met Sally'. Awesome.

The best Reuben's (with pastrami) sandwich in the world. We flew five thousand miles to taste it so you better believe that it's good.

My wife had a pastrami sandwich on rye and they forgot the cheese. I had a Reuben on rye and it was okay. I've had better Rubens and of course I've had worse. If you like crowds and disorganization, this is the place to go
