“Great restaurant--fresh ingredients”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

I work by this restaurant and come here when I need a western fix. The menu is seasonal, but my go-to favorites are the pumpkin soup, hummus, and pomegranate chicken sandwich. For fall, they have a granny smith apple and fennel drink that is amazing!

“Our western food getaway in Beijing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Element Fresh was always our weekend fun. The place is always packed with international crowd, all happy and energized.

Food is good. Fresh indeed. We normally take the freshly squeezed juices together with a salad and a main dish as a pasta. The nice thing is that even after a full meal there, you are not bloated but feels good.
Very good service, especially considered how busy is the place.

Don't forget to register to their club. You can win tickets to the China Open (tennis tournament).

“Good and fresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This review is for the Lido Element Fresh. There are several around Beijing.

The food here is good and fresh Western fusion and the place is clean and lovely. It was too hot for us to sit outside (August) but in different weather the front and roof decks look nice. The service gets an A for effort but of the six or so times we ate there (staying next door at the service apartments) they got our orders wrong a couple of times, and in ways that didn't make sense (like extra bowls of soup when we were trying to specify the side soup), but they corrected them without any attitude. We loved the Vietnamese rice noodles with chicken or shrimp and the portion was large enough to split between two of us. The place gets too busy and the wait is too long at the lunch hour so go early or late. Also, for reasons unclear there is no cell 3G inside the restaurant. Also, it's really pricey by Beijing standards (totally normal by San Francisco standards, however.)

“It is fresh!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The outside is fine in good weather, their salads are really nice. Service is OK, get a membership card - you get one free beer for each purchased..
