I often find myself writing more about value these days when so many restaurants are trying to gain our attention to eat and experience and return for more. I like element fresh and it's consistency in execution and also it's locations and experience. Except for dining in first floor XTD location. Tables fit uncomfortably in the space and too near...

I was told about the place by a vegetarian, so I was in doubt. Terrible mistake!, great place with wide options in the menu. I ordered pasta and my partner a beef sandwich. The table besides us tasted hummus... So there are a number of different types of meals and ours were just great! Not the cheaper place in town,... More

We eat at the Jinqiao Element Fresh regularly. Whether we have breakfast, lunch or dinner we are never disappointed. The service is good - they provide western style training for their staff- and the food is fresh, healthy and consistently good. It's not cheap but sometimes we just crave food from home and this hits the spot. We often get... More

This Element Fresh, like others in Shanghai, is a reliable place for breakfast and lunch. I like their egg and toast with fresh squeezed (real) fruit drinks. Very wholesome ! The decor (light wood, simple, airy) makes a happy environment. I always feel comfortable there. The patrons are a good mix of Western and Asian people. It is a social... More

The West Nanjing branch of EF is my favorite choice if I feel like a good dish, without thinking hard on choices. It offers a mix of Western and Chinese food and serves fast, good quality. My choices were the pumpkin soup or the salmon salad and both are excellent. The cook actually delivered at the table, making the service... More

Regulars at the Nanjing branch of EF, we were relieved to find this branch at the end of a busy morning Christmas shopping with the kids. The place was busy, but not full, and extremely noisy - indeed the kids commented that it sounded worse than the school canteen. However, the food was good,as it usually is. And when you... More

Refreshing and varied, this is a retreat for the local expat community who has had enough of Chinese cuisines. Always very happy with their service and food which is extremely fresh, great for health freaks. Love their selection of combo juices.

Directly across from the Renaissance Hotel ( a daring road cross-over at that!) is Element and after two meals of Lamb and Chicken (tender-juicy)) it was the western palate savior we needed. Eight of us dined the first night and all were happy with savory, hot, and graciously portioned and served meals in a crisply clean, modern, environ that felt... More

We had a variety of Asian dishes and western dishes. Everyone enjoyed their meals and really liked the smoothies. Keep an eye out for stray cats, if you eat outside at the Super Brand Mall location.
