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.

Had voucher in the entertainment book so thought we'd give it a try. Huge variety of food. Sadly they had run out of fries. Tasty sandwiches made by friendly staff. All our party of six would return.

Ordered an Italian style sandwich with Turkish bread. The bread the maker used was already sitting on the bench uncovered in the open. As the place was empty I must assume it had been there for a while. The menu specified two types of salami,...Italian and pepperoni, but the maker only put one type in the sandwich. I asked about the second type and was told that it was a choice between different types even though only one type was available. I challenged the lady but she insisted that the sandwich only had one type. Either she was lying or it was false advertising. The cheese was advertised as mozzarella but it certainly wasn't mozzarella, it tasted and behaved like cheddar cheese. If a sandwich company is going to charge $17 for a sandwich then the sandwich should be of high quality and exactly what is advertised. In the future I will just go to subway.More

The food here wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either, very average food, portions on the smaller side with far too much sauce

Monday lunchtime, very empty although friendly helpful guy as I hadn't been before now. Nice salmon bagel and good cup of tea. Noticed the tables all needed a very good clean and the floor was in need of a good scrub, but when visiting the...restroom I almost walked straight out - it was absolutely filthy! You would think when so quiet the staff could pay more attention to cleaning, even the counter top was dirty. Please pay more attention to cleaning the whole place from top to bottom, I wonder how long its been since the place has had a really good deep clean. Will not go back unless hygiene is addressed, pity as bagel was good.More

I went here today with a friend and we ordered a Salmon on Broadway Hero it cost $18.25. There was only one very thin slice of salmon in the serving. Sure there was salmon in the meal but for $18.25 I was sorely disappointed and...not worth it. Also we arrived at 9am which is what the website says is the opening time for breakfast and they were not open. The staff member apologized and said they were not ready and said they will open at 9.30am. We waited in our car when we should have just left. Bad service. I will not return to New York Deli and will tell as many people as I can of my bad experience.More

Look, New York deli isn't BAD as such, but damn they never have anything. It doesn't matter what time of day you go, I've never seen more than two of the breads available and I have NEVER seen them with bagels in stock, and when...half the menu is bagels? What is the point. The food they HAVE tends to be fine, nothing amazing, but fine. But the lack of options and the sheer boredom on the face of the staff means I couldn't in good conscience give an overall rating above 2. Manage your orders better.More

Hadn't been for a while, but was in the area last Sunday for lunch. Greated by a friendly guy. Food efficiently prepared and happy with it. What let it down was getting our coffee order wrong and cleanliness. Appreciate it was still probably in the...lunchtime rush just after one, but if you bring out drinks to customers, This is a good opportunity to take dishes back to the kitchen, as you are heading back that way anyway. Or wipe down the empty table, or even the water area (it wasn't looking too good and put me if using it)More

I really enjoyed the food and there were many options available but it was the staff who made this a memorable visit. All 3 were friendly and helpful. The friendliness wasn't forced or false, it was very natural. One chap was even moving to the...music, he said it was a good workout. He worked efficiently and quickly. The only thing not so good was the coffee, just a little weak for me but it didn't ruin the day.More

I wanted a genuine American hot dog, but the "New Yorker" was a big disappointment. The management have clearly never been to New York. Bun not steamed, just a supermarket one. Cold "Bratwurst," cold chewy bacon. Un-melted cheese slices. Have been to the Deli twice....Last time I ordered the "Salty." It was even worse. Far too much American mustard, all the toppings fell of the bun. I might try another branch, maybe it will be better. The fries were OK.More

I did not visit this store - felt this needed to be pointed out at the beginning. I used Uber Eats to order and have a New York Pork Hero delivered. This is not my first order at New York Deli. I was introduced to...NYD by a very good friend many years ago, but the store I could get to in my 1/2hr lunch has now closed. I am always happy with the amount of meat in my sandwich. Personally I don't get salad in my sandwich - I know I am paying for it, but seriously who can go past a meat sandwich. The pork is always tender and the ciabatta bread is always fresh. Love the onion jam (and I am not an onion fan) and love that they put little bits of crackling in the port sandwich. Nom nom nom. Variety of meat and bread options. When I have been in store the staff have always been friendly and the salad looks fresh. I have ticked "cheap eats" but the price you pay for a sandwich may be a little more than some people are willing to pay. However, get a Hero size sandwich and that will do 2 people for a lunch or save the other half of the sandwich for lunch the next day. Yes I would order from here again. Thanks for a super yummy sandwich.More

Walked in at 8:57 door says they open at 9 this site says they open at 8:30 the door was wide open suggesting they were ready for customers. Staff say sorry we not open yet, in a rude manner. If they had of just said...nicely we aren’t quite ready to serve you but have a seat and we open in 3 mins I would have stayed and waited. Don’t have your door open if you don’t want customers to walk in. I am so sorry I was an inconvenience to you at 8:57am.More

Still a good sandwich although disappointing that the franchise has changed from being able to select the salads to having set items to accompany your choice from the menu. They were amazing before when you could select your salads from the salad bar when you...ordered. Maybe Subway might be back in contention moving forward, at least they allow you to add your salads - I hope New York deli goes back to how they did things previously, as it looks like they have bumped the prices up as well.More

Have to admit, didn’t have high expectations as dropped in for a quick bite to eat in. Service was very friendly, helpful and quick. Sandwiches and fries arrived really quickly and were truly outstanding. Bread and ingredients were super fresh, well cooked and clearly of...high quality. We really enjoyed the meal and will be back for more for sure!More

The display of food was messy, containers of salads were nearly empty as was the meats. The girls were friendly and attentive. My main annoyance was we all wanted fries with our burgers and they said they had run out of fries 😢. It was...7.30pm and they are open till 9pm this shouldn't happen.More
