If going with kids make sure you ask for a kids menu. This is the only place were everyone in our family of five can enjoy something (our kids don't like Chinese food -... More

I am very limited on what I can eat so this was AMAZING! Everything on the menu was SO FRESH! There were 6 of us with various tastes. This was perfect! I wouldn't say that the food was authentic to China, but it was yummy!

We're long time customers of a Element Fresh. The food is always consistently good and their delivery service is timely and efficient. A great way to get restaurant quality food at home. We also eat in their restaurants, which are nice and service is good. Have to say though that their prices are very high indeed (good example, steak sandwich... More

I loved the Spicy Shrimp Salad. Everything seemed to mix well together. Cashews, grilled shrimp, papaya chunks with appropriate amount of lettuce etc., made the salad very delicious. I have not tried anything else yet. But staying at Portman, this is very convenient.

There are a number of Element Fresh branches in Shanghai. We ate in the one across the road from the Renaissance Yangtze hotel. The restaurant was brilliant, large selection on the menu and the food was excellent - really delicious. We're both vegetarian and other we're a number of options available. The staff were brilliant, really friendly and helpful.
