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

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

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!

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
