We have dinner here about once a month and it never disappoints. Dragon eggplant stuffed with shrimp is a favorite, along with whole steamed fish, fried rice with egg whites and dried scallop, steamed minced pork, braised egg tofu, fish maw soup. Bonus lobster if you order at least eight dishes so bring friends.

Not your typical dim sum place with the heated push carts - its order your dim sum from a menu and ticket. My favorites: shrimp har gow, congee, shu mai, baked bbq buns, sticky tice with otus leaf, bean curd with pork. YUM!

I have craved dim sum for many months. Finally, I went with my friend. It was so good. The food was delicious and it came out very fast. Portions was reasonable and the price was very fair. Can't wait to come back again. I liked the shrimp dumplings the best.

This place is slightly less expensive than other places nearby. Good selections of Dim Sum. You order items fresh as well as selecting from passing trays. All good. Slightly noisier than the one better Dim Sum place next town, but quitter than noisy ones in NYC China Town. You can order fresh vegetables such as Sautéed Mustard Green, Pea Shoots,... More

Elite is one of the more expensive dim sum places in Monterey Park but the servings have a unique taste of quality. I've eaten there a number of times but fall back to my go to place.

Everytime we would like to enjoy Dim Sum, we have to be there very early even for a breakfast. By a little over 9:00 a.m. the place has already busy. The price is pricey compared to other Dim Sum restaurant; but they carry quality & different types of dim sum which you could differentiate. The service is not that great,... More

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.

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.

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