what the critics say


Matthew Norman - 9/10

Friday, January 27, 2012 - Kleftiko with lukewarm chips and Hungarian goulash with excellent saffron rice were fine winter warmers, but the clear highlight was my salt beef in rye bread with sweet and sour pickles. The beef was plentiful, juicy and just as fatty as it should be...With its bustle, warmth and earthy charm, Gaby's is our best answer to the great New York delis. No one survives for 47 years in as fiercely competitive a catering market as central London's, and builds such a ferociously loyal clientele, without serving good food. But what makes Gaby's so special is that it stands almost alone as a beacon of individualism, illuminated by a tight-knit family working almost around the clock, in an ever-more homogenised age.

Friday, February 10, 2012 - It may not be the be all and end all of salt beef sandwiches but it's still pretty good. I suppose the ideal time to sample the above at its best is between noon and 1pm when the beef comes straight out of the bain-marie; it'll always be succulent, moist and gratifying. The kebabs on offer here are unfortunately not in the same league as our Turkish friends' efforts but Gaby's giant meatballs deserve a special mention for they were particularly memorable.
