You will not imagine to get such fresh, crunchy and clean salads in China so you can imagine my surprise when I did find such salads in Element Fresh restaurant. The portion is also value for money.

The managers and staff are well groomed in customer service. I had the Asian set which was just "so-so" but the atmosphere and services well made up for it! The pumpkin soup was delicious!! I went to the location at the K-11mall on Shaanxi Road which had an outdoor patio.

I highly recommend to order the Lebanese salad, the humos was very nice and the grilled prawns and salmon as main dish The price of the Resturant is same like any resturant in the French quarter so it would cost 200 RMB per person

This is a very consistent restaurant that is one of the best in China. I have been eating there for more than 10 years (originally at the Nanjing Xi Lu branch), and the food is always good. It has gotten pricy like the rest of China, but there is little they can do. Serving the best food and providing great... More

They push the freshness of the place, the one plus point. That a club sandwich costs 88rmb is a bit much, if you wanted a side salt then it was another 28 on top of that. 35 rmb for 500 ml water? Water that costs 4 rmb in a store... The ceasar salad was good, but I have never had... 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!
