    We asked for no sugar, should have asked for low salt/no msg too.
    Dinner was:
    Shredded chicken and jellyfish appetizer, I was pretty much the only one of our party of 6 that ate it. It was salty but I love crunchy jellyfish.
    Flounder filet stir-fried with vegetables. It was great, again a little salty. a table fave.
    Chinese broccoli with fresh garlic and oil only. This killed, everyone dove in.
    Peking Pork Chops, deep-fried with sweet Peking sauce (for my son). The chops were juicy and not dried out, very thin, a bit too much bone and the sauce was a bit over powering and one of the 2 vegans couldn't resist a taste.
    Vegetables with crab meat sauce (Real, canned, crab meat) Everyone loved this, was salted perfectly and even the vegans took a side trip into it. The best dish of the night.
    And I cannot remember the 6th dish but. it was gone. total cost $150 including tip (which was not added to bill)
    We had two types of tea, jasmine and pu erh, which is a fermented black tea with a very earthy flavor. Chinese believe that it washes the oils out of your body, it is a tea I have grown to love. Great with oily dim sum. No tea charge (yay)
    Very happy overall.

    The place was relatively clean. There was quick seating. The dim sum was straight forward and something you could get all over Chinatown. There were ladies pushing carts with food presented on them in a traditional fashion. It is cash only. Most of New York Chinatown is cash only.  

    The staff don't understand English and speak mostly Cantonese. If you speak mandarin, they can guess what you are saying. If you are an English only guest, you should ask and gesture to look at all the items and then decide if you want to eat it or not. Maybe go with a friend who can speak on your behalf. :) just a tip.

    Last night 3/4 of the restaurant was booked for early moon cake festival. Each table had 10 people. Everyone ate family style. There was 11 plates ordered per table. Each plate got devoured in minutes. Taste I would give it 3.5/5. Customer service for this much people I would give 5/5. Overall great experience. I would recommend and come back with big group of people.

    Horrible service. Our group of 7 were never assigned a server and were only served house appetizers. Fifteen minutes after looking for someone to place our order with no success our group opted to leave. After paying the appetizers the disregarding servers swarmed us to demand a tip although we were disregarded the whole time we were there. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME HERE THERE'S way better places around with a better sanitation grade (this place had a B)

    With decor and the dim sum carts from the 80's, Delight 28 is an old school Chinese dim sum restaurant in the middle of NYC Chinatown.  Nothing fancy.  Nothing impressive. Just good ol' traditional dim sum.  All the dishes out party of five ordered were nicely flavored and in good serving portions.  Service was friendly. Price point was amazingly cheap/affordable.  For five hungry people, the entire check was only $40 before tip.  Beware, however... true to 80's business practice, Delight 28 is a CASH only operation.  Other downside is they don't clear out dishes but that okay because we stacked up our achievements with the empty plates.  Enjoy!
