Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

As an Ellerslie local I’m a regular visitor to Pastrami and Rye and they’ve never let me down. Dave and the crew always have a great atmosphere going in the shop, sharply dressed with great service as the norm. The Cuban is my go-to order...but the French Dip is another favourite, as well as the Beef Shortrib when available. The prices are, in my opinion, a fair representation of the food and service provided. Highly recommend giving them a go.More

They have just opened for dinner and we had an amazing meal- cheeseburger sliders were phenomenal! Perfection with a glass of wine. You’ve also got to try the cherry pie! Service was so friendly and we will definitely be back

We were in the area looking for a place to eat and ended up here. They primarily do sandwiches but I was intrigued with the lobster roll special they had so I went with that. I also grabbed an iced chocolate which was ok. I...did like that the sandwiches came with potato chips (not hot chips). The lobster salad in the roll was quite tasty. The bread roll was quite soft. there isn't much seating in the restaurant though so it mostly seems to do takeaways. They even have lockers specifically for takeaway orders. They also had pastries in their cabinet.More

I was there when it first opened and it was great then and I am glad that it is still there now and more importantly still tasting good. The menu is simple and has a good selection of sandwiches. The shop was busy when I...went and people were waiting both in and outside and some were eating inside. The counter girl was welcoming and took the order quickly. I ordered a coffee with my Cuban and the order was done in 10 or so minutes. The girl thanked me for waiting, but when it's busy and everything is made fresh and in front of you, 10 minutes is not an issue. Coffee was great and the Cuban melted in my mouth. Loved that they still give you a giant pickle and chips in the bag. If I lived in the area again, I'd be there all the time!More

I came here a few times and wasnt great, service was good but had an encounter with the manager and witnessed mistreatment of staff and patrons, do not support this place if you agree with being mistreated and made to feel extremely uncomfortable by management....Disrespectful. 0 starsMore

Been here for takeaways and also for a weekend sit-in brunch. All times have been amazing - their baking is so delicious and coffees are consistently good. My partner can't stop talking about the donuts!! Service is always great too, my new favourite Ellerslie place.

When I moved to Ellerslie, I needed to try out their sandwiches. Delicious reubens, bacon buttys, and gosh the coffee is absolutely yum (strong!). Lovely people too! It’s like a NY deli. I wish there was also latkas and matzo ball soup.

Pastrami and Rye are local to me so I've been there multiple times, sometimes with friends or family. I have found that the sandwiches are always hot with a generous portion size and the dessert cabinet is always full of tempting treats. The staff are...always super sweet and friendly, and it's worth having a nosy over Christmas because they sometimes have mouthwatering displays of ham or salmon. If you have some carnivores to feed, then this one is worth a visit.More

I have been going to P&R for a couple of years now and have never been disappointed. Dave has created a unique experience in Auckland. The staff are all so welcoming and full of life so there is always a great vibe inside. Their sandwiches...are large and packed full of goodness which makes them great value for money and simply delicious. The crisps and pickle on the side are an added bonus. I can never go past a fresh juice when I'm there either. This place is a must visit if you are in Auckland! You won't be disappointed.More
