Elite - Dim Sum - 1st Time

JAB | Oct 3, 200805:08 PM     25

I was leery of disappointment having not thought that 888 was anything special after reading rave reviews concerning it here. Overall, Elite did not disappoint. Everything was good to very good. We ordered Shu Mai & Har Gow and both were very good. We also ordered Ham Sui Gok, Spareribs, Sticky Rice in Lotus Leaves & Fried Rice with Dried Scallops and Egg Whites and all were good with the Fried Rice being a little salty. Lastly, we tried a new dish to us that was Baked Scallop and Turnip in Pastry and this was alright but, I wouldn't order it again.

On the plus side, you definitely get the feeling of being in an upscale establishment from the room to the place settings.

On the down side, it's a small room, it's loud and parking is not sufficient. I couldn't even imagine what it's like at prime time on the weekend. The staff also need to improve their table side manners to match the upscale surroundings.

Let me also add that ordering Dim Sum from a menu without photos can be difficult for some. The last place that I went to for off of the menu Dim Sum in Rowland Heights had pictures. For instance, I know the Chinese name Ham Sui Gok but, I don't read Chinese and the Engllish translation was unrecognizable. No, it didn't say Football.
