We visited Ton Ton Garby as soon as we arrived in Brussels after reading the rave reviews on TripAdvisor. I can assure you it did not disappoint. We knew we’d have to wait a while but it was well worth it. The quality of the...service and the ingredients is second to none. You can tell the gentleman that owns it is so passionate about what he does and his customers. Everything is tailored to you! The sandwiches were out of this world and we left completely and utterly stuffed. It was a great start to our Brussels trip!More

Read the reviews and wanted to try it. Thought it would be a great takeaway option for the Eurostar home. It’s right that it takes a while even if only a few people in front of you. The guys serving are friendly and attentive and...they ensure you walk away happy with your sandwich. The sandwich selection is vast. I was very pleased with my choice and I only wish I didn’t have to travel 200 miles to get another! If you’ve got the time I highly recommend.More

The owner was warm, well spoken and helpful in addition to making one if the BEST sandwiches I’ve ever had. I’ve already suggested that people go there when I’m Brussels. If I am ever in Brussels again, I will get lunch here! (Don’t worry about...the wait-it is worth it!)More

Hands down the BEST sandwich I’ve ever had. I was not just a sandwich, it was an experience- the man who runs it was genuine and wants nothing but the best for his customers. As a tourist, he will be a reason I return to...the city!! Amazing!!!! #wereallneighboursMore

Wasn’t sure what to expect but definitely delighted to have gone. The wait can be fairly long but it’s worth every minute for the service that you get and the sandwich you come away with. 10/10 highly recommend.

Such a friendly guy! Told him I was vegetarian and he immediately came up with multiple sandwich options for me. My friend ordered a different one (with meat) and he offered to make half without meat so we could split both. We had one sweet...and one savory sandwich, and they were both incredible. I could not recommend this place more! The line was sort of long and he apologized many times for the wait, all the while making conversation and sandwiches so quickly! Great quality, cheap, and an amazing atmosphere. Don’t miss it!!!More

This is far from being a fast food sandwich place. It is an experience, a jump into favours, manners and positivity. I enjoy all the time I come back to Tonton Garby, because of the warm soup your are welcomed with when you are waiting...in the queue, the attention to customers' satisfaction, and the variety of flavors. This is also what visiting Bruxelles means, not just the usual touristic sightseeing, the fries and waffles, the Belgian beer. Visiting Bruxelles means also experiencing different cultures, different people, and food. Tonton Garby mixes great cheese, great flavours, with exceptional manners.More

The sandwiches are the special thing, the only thing, but trust me it will blow your mind. You can also buy drinks and a daily homemade soup. But the sandwiches are why you go there.
