Chinese dim sum dishes are served directly to the table at this bustling eatery with a varied menu.- Google
"Good dim sum, but the quality has gone down over the years."

Was very excited to try this place after seeing it on many top dim sum places in LA lists and great reviews. We got there at 2:20 and was greeted by a rude woman. The place was not busy and yet she sat us in the back room in a tight corner right next to all the lazy susans. During my entire meal a staff member would walk behind me to retrieve a lazy susan and bump me with no apology. After a minute after being seated, the rude woman came and screamed at us to order because the kitchen closed at 2:40 and the restaurant closed at 3:00pm. Being rushed, I checked off a few things after looking at the picture menu. It turns out the order of the food in the picture menu does not correspond to the numbers. So the top row first four is not #1, #2, #3, or #4. So we got items that we did not want. After getting our first two dim sum which came out quickly, the rude woman came with the bill and demanded that we pay. So we did and after that, we got zero service. The rest of the dim sum came quickly but no one came to refill out tea which costs $1.20 a person. I had to go find the large hot water canister to refill it. Later, I had to find a to go box. Foodwise, it was okay. The Shu-Mai and the Har Gow were large but I have seen large ones that tasted better elsewhere. They use a lot of MSG and salt. Most of their dishes were either salty or flavorless (such as the Bean Curd Wrap and the Fried Taro Cake). The restaurant is a dump. There are cracks in the wall and the bathrooms were flooded and dirty. As we left, the rude woman was sitting at the first table stuffing herself. She looked up but did not bother to say anything. Totally rude. We will not be coming back, ever.

There are some dim sum dishes that are very well-done at Elite, but there are several drawbacks that take away from the overall experience. The wait times can be very long on the weekends, the staff is rude, the prices are higher than other dim sum restaurants with similar quality food, and ordering off a disposable paper menu by marking your selections can be a little cumbersome, if you decide you want more food; traditional dim sum restaurants that have cart-pushers career to the needs of gluttons much better.

This place has very good dim sum, but a little overpriced. Considering the quality of food, the price and the service, I can only give it 3 stars. Our table was missing the sauces and I brought it to their attention, but it took such a long time for them to bring it out that our food got cold. Not sure what the point of good food is if the it lacks the necessary sauce and then becomes cold.

Finally got the chance to try this place out , and yes a crowd starts to pick up after they open . So I suggest to arrive when it opens . So at this place you order off the menu, not the typical dim sum places that the servers push the cart around . It's a bit pricey, but the quality can be seen and tasted . It takes a while for your items to arrive. So it's best to order everything at once . They charge for the condiments , but to be honest the dim sum tasted so good nothing else was needed .

This place is pricy. I mean, quality is good, but we had a party of 9 adults and 2 9 year olds, and rang up a $228 bill! They charged us $14 for tea! I think we had 4 refills, but $14? That should be free. They also charged $10 for our rice. As for the dim sum, the shiu Mai is a pretty good portion for $3.28. 4 large not-as-greasy pork and shrimp goodness. But man the prices are a deal breaker. We also got some red bean taro sesame balls and some egg tarts. Again, really flavorful, but really no different than NBC down the street.

Great selection of dim sums. It gets busy. This place is popular with the local. There is usually a wait on the weekend but its worth it.

there is usually quite a wait during the weekends, come grab a number, and listen carefully for your number, parking lot is small, but side street parking is not too difficult, you order your dim sum ahead of time, and they deliver it in good time, its more expensive than the average dim sum
