Absolutely delicious meal at Elements. The Spring rolls and fried green tomato appetizers were delectable. The Butter Chicken and Walnut Prawns were to die for. The other diners-Vegetarian Kung Pao noodles and Vermillion Snapoer-also found their entrees to be quite yummy.

Great restaurant with an Asian flare. Even the salad was off the chart. I had the Prawns. 6 huge prawns that looked like small lobster tails. Served on a bed of Asian cabbage slaw with a great sauce on the prawns.

Once again, Elements has blown me away with its absolutely outstanding food, service,and ambience. Everything our six person party ate (and we ate a lot) was delicious and perfectly prepared. The restaurant is also extremely accommodating about dietary restrictions and sharing. And it is one of the few places where you can actually have a conversation with your fellow diners, even at a fairly large table like ours, and hear one another. Kudos to Elements, which is definitely one of the very best restaurants in the Chapel Hill/Durham area.

Food and service were wonderful. It got a bit noisy when a large group arrived. Perhaps if the location of the large group table was not in the center of the dining room the noise could be abated a bit.

The food here is very good, but the timing of everything was dismal. We waited almost 2 hours for our dinners to arrive after our appetizers came out. I know everyone is short staffed, but a little communication goes a long way in a situation like this. If the waiter had come to our table to explain what was going on, we might have understood, but that did not happen. The ambiance was so mediocre - lights were too bright, no background music and dirty tables all around us. We were so disappointed with our experience.

The food was excellent, as usual, but service was slow. We were outside, and had to wait more than half an hour to get someone to take our order. The restaurant seems to be under-staffed, though perhaps that was compounded by our being outside. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Very good food, a little pricey for portions. Huge disappointment that sushi bar is not open, that needs to be noted with any reservation as that was the main reason I chose the restaurant based on past experience. A COVID casualty.Still good but miss the excellent sushi.

This was my first time dining at Elements. I loved everything about our dinner there--the food, the service, and the ambience. Tables are very well spaced apart, which makes the dining room much quieter and conducive to conversation than most. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in the area.

Great food as usual! The rolls were phenomenal and could have been dessert. I had the filet mignon tips and my wife had the butter chicken. Started with a tuna sushi flight that was out of this world. A bit pricey compared to other restaurants I. The area ($30-40 entrees) but you can’t find food like this that has so much flavor and pop when it’s all out together. As a result, Elements remains my favorite restaurant in the Triangle.

Nice place. Server was great. No sushi on the menu at present, which was disappointing. Had the bread basket and spring rolls with the Bibb wedge salad to start…all very good. We had the butter chicken and lo mein noodles as entrees…both fantastic. For dessert we did the donuts and ordered a scoop of ice cream to go with them, and this was a winner. They have outside dining with heaters, but we stayed inside.

The food that the four of had was really fabulous. The special sauce on the halibut dish is the best ever tasted.
Our server David was over the top,friendly and attentive while hustling all the time to insure other tables were taken care of.

The food here is generally excellent. This time I had shrimp tacos as an appetizer, much better than average, and Hanoi fish as my main, which was good but not outstanding. my wife had the Bibb lettuce wedge as an appetizer, which she really enjoyed, and the Korean Seafood Hotpot as her main, which was really outstanding with a super tasty broth and tone of seafood. Overall, highly recommended.
