    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Tock's enjoys the distinction of being the only Montreal-style deli in Shanghai. The specialty here is the brisket that they smoke in house. It's surprisingly versatile, making an incredible reuben, a club, a spaghetti topping. They also have a sterling reputation for their matzo ball soup, and their poutine is about as authentic as you can get in this city.

    I am so glad that Tock's are finally opening a new branch. Whenever I am in the Waitan district I can never resist walking a few blocks and dropping into Tocks for one of their great sandwiches. They are soooooooo good. I almost feel like going there for a sandwich and some poutine right now.

    Yes, the new Tocks is good. It's got the same amazing smoked meats as the original Tocks near the Bund. But the new location is so much more convenient. Tocks will be eating up a lot of lunch business in the area. Their smoked meat sandwiches are so addictive. I hope they are healthy or else I'll be having health problems.
    Very good food!

    Let's get it out of the way, service can be improved, but it was very polite and they delivered what was expected.

    Food was very good. The beef was cook perfectly, the fried tasty and the slaw a very nice addition to the plate. Not much to say except that its a good place to go with your friends or when you want to fix your need for beef. I will go back as soon as possible.

    Dear Tock's.

    I would like to apply for a job, as whilst your food was tasty, you obviously need staff that aren't space cadets. Whilst I totally understand you were busy when I visited. Twice your staff member asked the guy next to me for his order, only to wander away before he could open his mouth to say what he wanted. After half an hour he finally got an order in at the counter. And then your staff member was just ranting "it's only food, there's people dying in the world." There were few other tables who got their order stuffed up too.

    Finally, if you are going to call a sandwich "Monster" sized, I want to be rolling myself out of there. It was a bit on the small side for a $20 sandwich. The meat was great though.

    Solid.

    I have been eating here every month or two since they opened up. Smoked meat sandwiches are delicious.

    My gripes are:

    - I feel like the meat portions in the sandwiches have shrunk , and with that, the value.

    - They haven't served pickles with the sandwiches (which is listed on the meals) in forever. Why does a "deli" never have pickles?

    - The fries that come with the sandwich are dry, and the poutine, according to my Canadian friends are weak. I had never had poutine prior to Tock's, so I have nothing to frame my experience with, but the fries were too dry, not enough gravy, and the cheese curds were miniscule.

    Stick to the smoked meat sandwiches.
    Please and thank you!!

    To sum it up in one word.....YES!!!

    I heart this place! Another good one to add to my ever growing list of amazeball places to dine in Shanghai! Service and food are always great! Location is a bit strange, but heard they are opening up another location in city center, which is more convenient (for me at least lol). They are always packed, which speaks for the food itself. I like to get the platter so I can DIY my food. And dont even get me started on the poutine!!! Prices are a bit high, but it matches the the area since it's touristy. If i'm ever by the bund, I make my way over there for a tasty bite!

    My second time there. The first time I tried the poutine, and this time I went for the reuben with smoked meat: it's all good!
    It does the job with flying colours, the plates and sandwiches come in small or big size and it's reasonably priced for the food you get. The staff is friendly too and does not hesitate to give you advice. They also have several beer options, although it's mostly bottled not draught.
    The atmosphere is comfortable, friends, couples, Chinese, foreigners, all together with Canadian and Quebecois items on the walls.
    As I don't often go to this part of the city, it's good to know there is such a solid place there!
    Great food!

    My office is nearby so I go to Tock's for lunch at least once a week and not only have I never been disappointed there, I am always impressed with both the food and excellent service from both the owner and the well-trained staff.

    I usually go for the monster-sized smoked beef sandwich, the Reuben or the 3-meat platter and all of them are without fail delicious. Portions are large and I'd like to also highlight the fries which haven't gotten enough praise in the other (good) reviews of this place - but they are crispy, hot and just the size I prefer. Too many place in Shanghai serve lousy fries - this is not one of them.

    My only suggestion - and this may be due to my lack of knowledge of what constitutes authentic Montreal style-deli bread but I find the bread that comes with the delicious meat a little ... plain. Personally I like crispy edges on freshly baked rustic bread so of course I'd like if that was the case but again, that might be wrong for an authentic experience..

    I very warmly recommend this place.

    Tock-tastic!!

    Tock's has great smoked beef sandwiches. That sums it up. Everything else is secondary. I don't know what they have done to the smoked beef, maybe put some addictive drugs in it or something, but it is fantastic! The portions are big and satisfying. Likewise with the poutine. After I eat at Tock's, I feel very full but the meat is so good that I am even tempted to order another. It's that good! I have even been with Chinese there, and at first they seem hesitant to try, but afterwards they all liked Tock's smoked beef sandwiches. I don't know how anyone can complain.

    I go to Tock's for the smoked meat sandwiches only. The decor and service are nothing noteworthy. The place is quite small, actually. And the location is inconvenient for me.
    Great food, excellent service.

    As a native Montrealer, I can tell you that the smoked meat was NOT at all
    like Montreal's. It was sandpaper dry and more like NYC corned beef.

    For a corned beef sandwich Tock's so called "smoked meat" is fair at best.

    If you are looking for Montreal smoked meat the only place to go is any deli in Montreal. Even the supermarket deli counter at IGA in Montreal has better smoked meat then Tock's.

    The service at Tock's is far better than the food!!!

    This place is a total rip off. I give it zero stars!!!
    Spot on, Tock's!

    Went on a Sunday night, it was our second time there. I absolutely love the food, the atmosphere and the service. I wont write again about the delicious meat (BUT DO TRY THE REUBEN). Owner and GF chatty but not intrusive, good food, attentive service, good value for money. Downsides? Al-fresco seating is next to a major road and not really a pleasant option. But for eating inside, absolutely no complaints. A must try.
