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.

Ess, Mein Kind – 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.

Um What did I order again...? – 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.

Fresh food and nice atmosphere – 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.

the Mill Basin Deli – 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.

Good food but way to expensive – 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

Best Kosher Deli – Best of New York: Mill Basin Deli takes top pastrami honors, Katz's Deli and Loeser's Deli follow

MILL BASIN DELI

5823 Avenue T, Brooklyn

Mark Schachner has owned the Mill Basin Deli for 37 years . His pastrami sandwich has drawn many a follower. For $9.95, it's made to your liking (but he prefers homemade Russian dressing and coleslaw) and is prepared with a secret rub — the ingredients of which only Schachner and his loyal workers know. "The magic is in the rub, which has a lot of pepper, I can tell you that much," Schachner, 57, says. Another trick? He steams his pastrami every morning not once, but twice, which leaves the meat juicy but eliminates the fat. The result is a sandwich so good that one may not be enough.

The Best in NYC – I eat in the Mill Basin Kosher Deli quite often. I find it to be super clean with great food and good service. Read this NY Daily News Article

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.

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)?

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.
