Granted, we came here for dinner and dim sum is usually served for brunch. My friend and I ordered pork buns, chicken steamed buns, shrimp wrapped with bacon, sticky rice with pork, shrimp dumplings and shrimp spring rolls. A description of each below: 1- Pork buns - usually these are my favorite but I didn't like the ones we were... More

My favorite dim sum restaurant! I went there this morning all happy and ready for cha siu bao, and it was CLOSED.. Windows papered over...can't tell if it has closed for good or is just renovating, and there are no signs. They've done this before, so I'm still hopeful. If it's shut forever I am devastated...really good dim sum at... More

My girlfriend and I came to this place for the dim sum, but were very disappointed. There were only 2 dim sum carts in the restaurant, containing very little variety. We waited for one hour, as the same carts moved around the restaurant and nothing new was added. When we requested something new, it took over 20min to arrive and... More

This place is very crowded. There is always a line up because it is so reasonable. There are many older gentlemen who spend hours reading the newspaper, and eating 2-3 dishes . If you are familiar with dim sum, you will know that 3 dishes is a lot for one person. Food is not the best, some are well done,... More

Sunshine 27 does not take reservations. So a party of 10 for dim sum on a Saturday has a long wait but it was worth the wait. Restaurant is crowded. The space between tables is just enough for the dim sum carts. Great variety of delicious food. It's a large place... so... the dim sum carts are very slow making... More

We visited the place without any prior recommendation and shared a table with some strangers. This is a no-frills eatery house that gets its reputation from serving outstanding Dim Sums at unbelievable prices. The service is also prompt and one can just choose an item and pick it off the trolleys which are pushed around the restaurant by their staff.... More

Went there with my family for a quick bite whilst visiting Chinatown. The waiter was great. He helped us with the menu. The food was delicious. Excellent value. Definitely will go back on my next visit to NYC.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
