5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Not like Yiwu at all, had lunch there, very fine western dishes, wondering if the bar will be nice as well at night, will check out next time! Great place!

“NO.1 RESTAURANT IN YIWU”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I have been travelling to yiwu for 15 years, 10-15 times a year. I always wonder why there aren't any good European/ western restaurants in yiwu. We always have to "settle" for Chinese, indian or the western restaurant in the best western ocean hotel.
Finally, enter 5 elements. The owner has done an amazing job to integrate a restaurant, bar, KTV, dessert restaurant around an open square.
The restaurant is tastefully renovated, cozy & modern.
The menu is perfect, good spread of starters, salads, pizza pasta, steaks, and some Asian fusion.
Service is very quick, staff are well trained and smart.

Calamari-squid tasted like rubber, but the batter and dips are very good.
hummus-pita bread-so so, we were served two dips that are not really hummus, but was ok
Aussie rib eye steak- not cheap and the quality of the meat was not good
Braised lamb shank with mashed potato and ratatouille-10/10...excellent
Overall, presentation is amazing. Food is hit and miss. Hopefully, they will improve

BAR-Very good singers, specially Joan. As they are Filipinos, obviously very friendly
and very entertaining. Very nice bar. I'm surprised it wasn't busy at all

I will definitely go back again and again and again
