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.

Had nice wines here with a collegue, good music and nice ambiance. Close to the Dorsett hotel, nice walk of around 10-15 minutes along the park. (Save area). English works OK in this place. Will look forward to have drinks there again.
