Good food

Business lunch was catered in by Element Fresh. Good tasty food. Large selection. Had hummas which was tasty and Goat cheese salad. Large portion, Almost large enough to share. Sandwiches are fresh and wide selection. Would recommend trying.

There's a saying in China, 如果你能吃中国菜,你是最健康,因为中国菜有毒。。地沟油! It means that the food in China is not safe but if you survive here, you can survive anywhere. So, welcome to element fresh. Very fresh, as the name says... With the only place I found where you get juices, shakes from real original and fresh fruits and vegetables. And the sandwiches, yummy! I... More

Element Fresh is one of my favorites in Shanghai. They have a lot of innovative dishes, combining middle East with European, American and Asian dishes. I especially like their spinach salads (in winter), their couscous salads and the Mexican 'Quesadillas'. In my opinion it is one of the best managed chain restaurants in town, with professional service and healthy offerings.... More

Went there with my family and enjoyed their comfort food. Western style, it offered a wide variety of food, since salads, sandwiches, pasta, etc. A nice place to go, if you want good and fast service, good food, and a pleasant environment. It's located in the French part of town.

There are Element Fresh restaurants throughout Shanghai. The one at the Super Brand Mall is closest to where we live so we have visited this location several times over the past year. First the cleanliness and service levels are very, very good. From the servers to the manager they always seem to care about my experience and are very efficient.... More

I have spent around $2,000 at Element Fresh, both dining in and ordering delivery catering. The menu has basic Asian and Western classics, though the Asian side of the menu is pretty bland. You won't get stomach problems here. Locals and foreigners alike dine here. The management is extremely attentive to customer satisfaction. The waitstaff is properly incentivized, well-mannered, and... More

Questions & Answers

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
