Arrive early for dim sum

One of my favorite dim sum spots in all of Los Angeles. You should arrive early as the line will start roughly around 9am. The traditional way of ordering dim sum with the carts is omitted in place of ordering from a checklist of items. This guarantees the food arrives fresh. Try the snow buns.

Whenever we are in LA, we make a trip to Elite on a weekend morning. Dim sum is always good and they have a good selection.

This restaurant its overrated, small, food its decent but not justified enough for the pricy dim sum and the long line.

read reviews of this place. came during a weekday. place wasn't very busy. ordered several items from their dim sum menu. the food was above average for dim sum. but the bill was far above average. probably wont come back cus there's plenty of dim sum places in the area with good food but more reasonable prices.

These tasty dishes have not been rolling on carts for who knows how long. This restaurant serves Cantonese style dim sum served hot and fresh from the kitchen. The pork soup dumplings and the sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf are standouts. Shumai pork bao, shrimp wrapped in rice noodles, chicken feet, jelly fish and hargow are typical of any... More

Came here on 12/26 based on the reviews and we want to have a nice Chinese meal after a flight to LA. The food was very good and the service was reasonable. However, the price was pretty expensive for what we ordered and hence I give it 3 stars.

Elite is one of the best "dim sum" restaurants in the San Gabriel Valley. The snow balls are one of its specialties. You order off a menu and they serve you. No carts, no face masks, and one side of the menu is in English.
