Excellent quick service for dim sum

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... read more

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.

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.

There is a wait on weekends, but it is worth it. This is one of the best dim sum in the area, which has a lot of very good places. They do not have carts, but a menu. While this is not as "charming", it takes the guessing out of whether to grab the cart in front of you and... More

I've been here before and have waited a long time for a table. Obviously, the wait was worth it, or I wouldn't have returned. There are no carts at this dim sum restaurant. While there are waitstaff bringing around a few dishes and desserts, I prefer to order from the menu so the food arives hot. This time, we went... More

Let's go down to Elite for a Saturday Dim Sum brunch. Ok. Long drive to Monterey park, well worth the drive! The restaurant is on a main drag in the heart of Chinese food paradise. The dim sum was served to a bunch of us in a private room where we gorged ourselves with food and wine pairings--mostly white wines... More

Even tho I am not Asian, I have been to over 25 dim sum places in the SGV. This is the best. The Scallop Dumpling is the best dim sum item in town. The Dry Scallop Roll Fun is excellent too. There are no carts, but everything comes out fresh and generally do not stick to the tray, like in... More
