This restaurant had a nice menu with a good variety of mainly non Chinese meals. We brought 4 students from Shanghai who were longing for western food and they all filled up on the great salads and meats on offer. It's a busy bustling restaurant and worth a trip.

When moving to Shanghai more than 12 years ago, this place became one of my favorite lunch restaurants in they city. The fact that it is still there and expanded with more branches tells you that they have done a great job. Lots of great items to choose from on the menu. My favorite always has been the laffa bread... More

A great choice of food - if you like to eat fresh healthy food there is a great choice here. You can eat asian / chinese dishes, or they also have more European stuff and great salads. Also great juices and smoothies - we sat on the roof terrace at K11 Art Mall and it was really pleasant - great... More

Element Fresh is a pretty pricey place, but they offer really good salads, and many of them! My friends took the pasta, they were a bit disappointed about the size of the dish, specially given the high price tag on it.

We tried the Element Fresh restaurant in the K11 shopping center at random. It looked nice and that was about it. We were pleasantly surprised at the menu and had no problems in selecting our lunches. The restaurant seems to focus on simple yet well prepared food with a healthy profile. We had salads with a couple of great "health... More

This restaurant has a menu that covers a broad spectrum. Food is fresh, well prepared, tasty and this makes a favorite of mine when I am in Shanghai. The staff, however, seems to be mostly wearing "trainee" badges and the level of services confirms that.

If you are looking for a great breakfast at a great value this is the place to go. We went twice and had a great breakfast both days. The food is fresh. They have many locations throughout Shanghai.
