Had a dinner in the Element Fresh at the Xintiandi area. Instead of the crowded pedestrian street terrace recommend trying the rooftop terrace in 3rd floor, much more quiet & nice place to have dinner. Restaurant has big proportions so didn't leave hungry & most of our party couldn't finish their plates even.

In a country hit by regular food quality scandals, Element Fresh is a safe and reliable restaurant to bring the family. Aside from the food, the facilities are very clean, furniture sturdy, and staff well trained. If Shanghai isn't raining, sweltering hot, or frightfully cold, then the two levels of balcony with views of tree-lined Nanjing Rd are pleasant. Because... More

The Restaurant is clean and the service was excellent with servers who could not have been more accomodating. All the food was very fresh and there is a large selection of... More

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
