I am an African American woman who started getting Jewish food about 10 years ago. However, Mill Basin Deli makes the BEST GEFILTE FISH I have ever tasted and I have eaten a lot of GEFILTE FISH. The delivery guys are polite and helpful

They have great meat sandwiches. I particularly love the veggie and meat sandwich. The drinks are all good too, my friends and I are going back here this Sunday for a bite.

My son's bris party was held at the Peach Pit Party Room at the Deli. Not only was the food as incredible as always, the room, service and staff were outstanding. I would recommend the Peach Pit Room to all of my family and friends!\r

We had a family function in the new Peach Pit Room on July 10. The food was superb and plentiful. The attention we received from the staff was excellent. They catered to our every wish. We had 78 people of all ages and quite a number

I used to go here all the time. Thought the food was really good. Ate in the restaurant and took food home. They even catered for shivah for my father.\r
But, twice while eating there I saw mice running around the restaurant floor.

Great place! There is beautiful art on the walls to enjoy as you are savoring the best pastrami in New York. The menu not only includes the traditional Jewish foods but they also spice it up with new creations such as the scrumptious latka

Kosher deli??s are almost an endangered species, basically because they have gotten a bad rap--- All that salt and fat?oy
While still a carnivores delight the Mill Basin Kosher Deli has gone to the next step. Yes, you can still get a great Pastrami sandwich or a stuffed derma. Now there are salads, soups and other healthier items.
Me, I am a traditionalist, for lunch I had the split pea soup, in a bowl almost big enough to do laps in, and half of Pastrami on rye for $ 8.99. There was Cole slaw, health salad, macaroni salad, half and full dill pickles, dark bread and of course, seltzer on the table gratis.
While kosher delis are no longer cheap, who can put a price on reliving a memmory.

This was my first time ever ordering from a Kosher Deli.

The first thing that literally grab my attention wasn't the cleanliness of the place but the prices! I figure I would get a roast beef, white turkey breast, russian dressing, with cole slaw overstuffed sandwich. It came up to $16.28. YES THAT'S RIGHT $16.28! The portions did not match the price.

All in all I really wanted to try their food so I coughed up the money.

I did enjoy my sandwich but I will think twice, wait probably thrice, before I open my wallet at this place.

I haven't been in this kosher deli in a few years now, only remember good things about so took a few friends for a dinner before the night out. its a drive from the city but well worth it, also note it that it is a kosher delicatessen so dont expect cheese or other milk products. we got a few sandwiches, my friend ordered one of the specials from their winter special menu, that was a great deal... unlimited cole slaw, pickles can get you full, bring your apettite. everyone left full and happy, i am definitly coming back soon.

Pros: Great sandwiches and delicious soups

Cons: gotta go back too many times to try all the menu items

One of the few delis that are left in Brooklyn that brings you back to your childhood when a Delicatessen was found in every neighborhood. The food here is excellent and the atmosphere is very nice. Everything is always so fresh and delicious. It is a bit pricey, but there is no better deli around.....It is worth the money!!!

Mill Basin Deli has the best deli food in all of brooklyn. The place is clean and the service is very friendly. The food is fresh and really tastes great. If you like pastrami and cornbeef, you have to go to this place.

This place is closed on passover. Food is top qualitya nd great meat. They do not mix with dairy ever. Their parve stuff like pickles are great. This place gets busy so you may have to wait a while for your dinner or supper or whatever you wanna call it. The have cakes for birthday parties. Macaronia nd potato salads are great. I live near here, so I come often, but I don't like the cornbeef sandwich. I like the pastrami one better though. Many people from my table mill bason/bergen beach residents go here. You guys are right it is like an art gallery, just like a museum, even in the bathroom!!!!!! It's a family oreiented resturaunt,a nd I know many of the waitors/waitresses there. They do expect hige tips though. Their rainbow cookies are great. You can place an order form home or you can take out. the potato pancakes are ok, but I've tasted better ones before. They play music and they do have a backyard, (hardly ever used) and the mexican busboyis always cleaning. This place is clean, but I really doubt that alcoholic beverages are served here. My parents and driends love this resturaunt too. More of the older people come here than the younger. But otherwise a menu like a fiesta. I hate the cow slaw. Ummm the barbeque chicken wings here are the best and finger licking.

Pros: Good food, good service, delicious coffee, glatt kosher

Cons: Prices, corwds, noise, waiting, no outdoor seating......

.

I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich 11.50 now i wouldnt mind if the sandwich was a considerable portion
but it was an average size any place else would cost 5 or 6 bucks. also an order of fries for 4.25 which are very good and good portion but not worth the price also they had the nerve to charge me 1.50 for delivery
I mnot going to be ordering from them again

Great over stuffed sandwiches. Try the potatoe pancakes as a side or an order of fries. Only problem is parking, meters right outside but very busy area.

This Deli is where I always get potato pancakes. They are so delicious. Even at their craziest you do not have to wait to long. You can sit there or take out.

So I was wrong.
Last month, I wrote about the Diamond Dairy Luncheonette and said I don't often review kosher restaurants because they're usually too expensive for this column. Days later, I got a letter from Mark Schachner, owner of Brooklyn's Mill Basin Kosher Deli. Polite but distraught - "It was like a knife through my heart"- he said that, ounce for ounce, his burgers, hot dogs and fries cost less than those at McDonald's and Nathan's, among other places, and are fresher and of better quality.

This is my apology to Mr. Schachner. You're right. I'm wrong. And I can't wait to go back to your deli.

It's shiny-clean, with pink walls and a pleasant back garden. The staff is like family: A waitress glared when I tried to stop my husband from ordering both chopped liver and potato latkes. Not only do you get free bowls of coleslaw, macaroni salad and sour pickles, but the menu is studded with deals, like two hot dogs and a knish for $5.90 and a three-course early-bird dinner for $15.95.

Besides, the food is the best of its kind. It's not Per Se, but could Thomas Keller make chopped liver like this two-scoop serving, coarsely hand-chopped, sweetened with onions and served with cucumbers, tomatoes and red onions ($6.95)?

It's not Daniel, but could Daniel Boulud make a hamburger like this mammoth charred patty, tenderly pink in the middle, smothered with sauteed onions and served with long, skin-on fries that actually taste like potatoes ($8.95)?

Golden-rich chicken soup is dense with noodles ($3.60), and barbecued chicken ($14.25) is half a plump bird in a sweet, vinegary tomato glaze that only in Brooklyn would pass for barbecue sauce. I ordered kasha varnishkes and glazed carrots with it, and got so much I had to take half of everything home.

I was wrong, Mr. Schachner. Please let me come back to your restaurant.

My husband and I tried the Mill Basin Kosher Deli last weekend and were sorely disappointed. Most of the food isnt bad, its about average, but the prices were ridiculous. Their coleslaw is good, although it is a little bit chunky. The one really good thing was the sour pickles, which are excellent. My husand had the triple crown, which is three very small sandwiches with only one type of meat in each, the sandwiches were good, but definitely not worth the $14 they were charging. I had a fritatta with a knish. The knish was good, not the best I've ever had, but good. The fritatta on the other hand was absolutely inedible, and no amount of salt or pepper was able to save it. On top of that the $10 they charged for it was galling. Trust me, there are better delis in Brooklyn than this one, spend your money somewhere else.

I've been coming here since I was a kid (and that's at least 25 yrs. ago). Their pastrami and french fries are second to none. A quintessential part of the NYC gastronome. You simply have to make a pilgrimage there now and again.

The Mill Basin Deli is one of the BEST Kosher Deli's! Beyond it's amazing food, you are surrounded by an Art Gallery! Every wall is decorated by famous artists. It is an amazing experience! I recommend trying there PLT (Burnt Pastrami, Lettuce adn Tomato)... You will be very happy!

For those who've seen the 150 foot long, 14 foot high billboard on Flatbush Avenue & Avenue U, you'll have to settle for a human size one, even if your eyes are bigger. However, you won't be disappointed! The food is outstanding, the service is friendly, and the artwork on display are rare beauties. If you like art, but hate museums, why not have a mouth-watering meal and walk around for a few minutes and enjoy a world-class exhibit at the same time!
