As you can see from my profile, I rarely write reviews unless the place really deserves it (positive or negative) or when it is misrepresented.

As for Elements, I recently had dinner there (I believe it was on December 20th 2013) and I was shocked to see the place rank so low.
This place easily deserves to be in the top 10 restaurants in Bangkok for the following reasons:
- It is located in the 5 stars Okura hotel
- The view is amazing, day and night, specially with the infinity pool next to you.
- The terrace extends to even more spectacular views
- Service is impeccable. Very polite and knowledgeable staff
- The atmosphere in the restaurant is very pleasant, it feels cosmopolitan, luxurious yet approachable.

As for the food, I would easily say that this place competes with a Ducasse or a Robuchon restaurant. The taste is divine, from the bread to the appetizers to the main courses and all the way to the desert. The combination of fragrances, intensity of the taste and distinctiveness of each ingredient is magical.
The palette used by chef Henry Jordan, whom I had the honor to meet, should put this restaurant on the watch.

Moreover, Elements adopts an open kitchen, where you can see live cooking, and this even puts more pressure on the kitchen staff to deliver quality and consistency.

Chef Henry was very friendly, he offered us (my wife and I) complementary starters and desert :)
The wine list covers all preferences for most wine connoisseurs.

I strongly recommend this restaurant and would love to see it in higher ranks.
As for the cost. I believe it is quite fair for the quality that you get. It is even considered cheap if compared to Hong Kong (where I was a week earlier in a 3 Michelin stars restaurant).

Regards,
Wissam

Fifty bites or so of heaven. Elements is new age experience, complimented very nicely by a super stylish, very posh rooftop setting with gorgeous views of the city and the Okura's famous invinity pool. The food (including things like foam of champagne and miso reductions) is a work of art - delicate and yet substantial and very, very satisfying. You find yourself smiling often at the surprise of wonderful flavors. I highly recommend the arctic char and the "White Eclipse" desert - which looked like something tantalizingly galactic and included a white chocolate shell full of a fusion of awesomeness, accompanied by homemade gelato and cherries and... sigh. The staff had finesse and were very welcoming. I felt extremely comfortable dining there alone. I will take the view and the flavor experiences with me as a very happy Bangkok treat.
