What's that you say? You never heard of Mill Basin? Don't worry, hardly any New Yorkers have, even in Brooklyn. The neighborhood is very remote and quite insular, which is one reason this deli is such a throwback. There's no sense of history here, no framed reviews, no images of the owner with celebrities, unless you consider miracle rabbis to be celebrities. (I do.) The main thing they do have is yiddishe classics like chicken soup with kreplach (dumplings), latkes (potato pancakes) and derma kishka (untranslatable.) The pastrami is pretty damn good too, and the first thing you should go here for.
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 when delivering the food and they are ALWAYS on time!!!!!
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!
Peach Pit Room Party – 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 commented on the quality and quantity of the food as well as the excellent staff. The Peach Pit Room accomodated our guests whether they were in strollers or wheel chairs. The private bathrooms and self contained setting proved to be all that I had hoped it would be. It was a party of which to be very proud! My brother-in-law is already planning another event there
very tasty meats – I go here all the time with my sister and our friends.
very clean and quiet place. good for quick fix, even if price can be a bit, too much.
I Don't Go Here Anymore – 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.
But, twice while eating there I saw mice running around the restaurant floor. Then I ordered kreplah to take home with chicken soup. Found a suprise in the kreplah, from a mouse. THAT SEALED IT!
They may be rated #1 by Zagat, but I go elsewhere. Haven't been back since then and don't ever intend to.
They are the Cleanest
Mill Basin Kosher Deli got not only an A on its inspection results but got 0 points. Can't get a better report than that. People also see flying elephants at times
Check the Health Dept Site
They are one of the cleanest Fine Restaurants in all of NY
Weather you are Jewish or not, you'll love it! – 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 chips and the unique pastrami egg roll. The variety of knishes range from the unchanged traditional square knish to the home baked spinach, pastrami, kasha, and sweet potato knishes. They also like to ensure you enjoy your food, by allowing you to choose from juicy, regular , lean or extra lean cuts of meat. the servings are monstrous and everything is clean and fresh. What a great place. It is in a quiet area on 59th and Ave T, truly on of Brooklyn’s greatest treasures.
