This place is a little crazy but oh so delicious! It gets really busy and for good reason. The matzo ball soup is TO DIE FOR. The sandwiches are of a generous size and just tremendously tasty. Nice fresh bread is served with each meal....More

I stopped as a part of my tv food maps journey. Had the Mish mosh soup. It was okay but warm not hot. Served in a large flat tureen to give the appearance of a larger quantity. Good but not great. Got a half pound...More

Ordered corn beef and cabbage. Yum. Lean meat, cabbage perfectly done and potato pancakes with crispy edges served with applesauce. Perfect. Fast efficient service. My only negative the restaurant could use a little up dating.

I hadn't been to Benj's in years but despite a change in ownership this deli on upper East Side is still great. You can get all the old favorites, i.e. pastrami, bagels and locks and the famous Hoppel Poppel, everyone's favorite. Service is fast &...More

We never dine in here, as the place is kind of dirty and really, really needs updating. However, their corned beef is great, and whenever someone in the family gets a cold, we rush to Benji's for their matzo ball soup. It's our comfort food.
