The place is small and cluttered, so best get take out. The Knish and chopped liver are pretty good, but avoid the over-priced sandwiches. A lot more for your money could be found elsewhere in that department.

After tax, a Pastrami sandwich is over $14. The pastrami is decent but the sandwich is relatively small. This is not an over-stuffed sandwich like most delis give you, and it is not hand-carved. I was really shocked when I got home to see what you get for your money.

the food is good, don't get me wrong, expensive sure, but its kosher in new york, what do you expect? the pea soup was thick tasty (if not a bit salty) and the turkey and pastrami were both awesome. the turkey was moist and tasty... but the waiter, if you can call him that.... was not good. after sitting for 10 minutes with no one coming over (we were the only ppl sitting down, surrounded by tables with dirty dishes and covered in food, i went to the counter and asked if we could order there.. no such luck. so he comes over and we order (2 soup/half sandwich specials and sodas). he writes nothing down and then starts arguing with my wife about why she wants chicken noodle soup and not matza ball. the last time we were here too he questioned our order. maybe he thinks its funny or cute, but its really irritating and unprofessional. then, he double and triple checked with me the soup and sandwich choices (maybe he should have written it down)... then he asked if we wanted anything for the baby (our toddler). i said no, he'll eat from our plate. he said "a hot dog maybe?" jesus guy, listen to the customer. it really makes a person not want to go there....

I absolutely LOVE their "Mushroom Barley Soup". It's sooo filling that all I need is a slice of bread on the side & I'm full until dinner time. Next on line is their Knishes. I've tried Spinach & Sweet Potato & the Sweet Potato is to die for. The employees are very nice & always keep a smile.

Ate here for the first time the other day and was very impressed. Got a pastrami on rye, matzo ball soup, and a side of onion rings (and Dr. B's black cherry of course) for two people and ended up absolutely stuffed. Pastrami was greatmade in house according to the owner as were the onion rings. Soup was standard, but still tasty. Overall this is a great find for me. If you only go to one deli in NYC, make it Katz's, but if you go to two, this should be the next on the list.

Hi everyone this is Steve from the Pastrami Queen at 1125 Lexington Avenue. I just wanted to clear afew things up. First, we are 100% Kosher under the rabbinical supervision of Rabbi Israel Mayer Steinberg. However, we are not Glatt Kosher because we choose to stay open on saturdays. Secondly, our prices are not high in comparison to other delis such as Katz's and Carnegie, it is the standard pricing for this type of food and we do not feel we are ripping anyone off with our pricing. Thank You for all comments both negative and positive keep em coming!! -Steve
