Wonderful ambiance, food and amazing customer service! Chef Chuong took some time for some very nice personal touches by chatting with us and also sending us a delicious vegan dessert to help celebrate our anniversary! We will definitely be back often and will be one of the first to visit his upcoming Cary restaurant.

We had an amazing dinner at Elements last night. It started with a top-shelf hostess who greeted us warmly and made sure we were seated comfortably. Our server was the perfect mix of attentiveness (our needs were met before we knew we had needs!) without being intrusive. The sushi was of the highest quality and the options were interesting and creative instead of the usual standard list of sushi options. Everyone’s main meals were prepared perfectly and delicious. I was especially impressed with my meal as I had sent them a long list of my dietary restrictions. They asked what looked good to me on the menu (um...everything!) so they could adjust the dish so I could eat it safely. The resulting meal was one of the best prepared and perfectly seasoned I have had. Many restaurants don’t take the time and care to find something interesting and tasty I can eat, but NOT Elements! They truly care about their guests and do not fail to deliver a very special and delicious meal! We will be back!

We have visited elements a lot, but we think the food quality keeps dropping down. Too salty and the specials are not special at all with bad tasing.

We were pleased with our wine choice from a very good list. We started with the calamari for the table and it was served promptly and nice and hot -- excellent. Everyone was happy with their entrees in particular the walnut prawns which I can't help but order every time!! we are in our late 60's and noise level has become a huge issue for us as diners but it was completely acceptable for us at Elements. our server was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. think there may have been AC issues that night as it was a bit warm in the restaurant area but not unpleasant.

This is and excellent asian fusion restaurant, perhaps the best in Chapel hill. The chef/owner is creative and careful with his preparations, staff is very congenial and the atmosphere is subdued and noise level quiet.
We had Red Drum prepaped in a beurre blanc sauce and their Noodles with Beef. Spring rolls however were a bit ordinary and greasy.

We've been to Elements several times and it's consistently very good. I highly recommend the honey-walnut prawns! The wine list is also very good - a range of prices, and excellent choices. It's an attractive restaurant, with very professional service, and a nice quiet ambiance.

Had not been here for dinner in a while and was pleasantly surprised. We had a very nice dinner and got a nice quiet table. Recently took a group to lunch and large table was noisy and food choices were not so great . Better for dinner. Had crab pasta which had lots of crab and was tasty -all diners liked their dinners.

Our food was outstanding. Our service was excellent. It was a bit of a noisy dining experience and we even had to speak up to hear people at our own table. LOVE this restaurant though and the food and service was above 5 stars. I highly recommend this as a great dining experience but you need to make a reservation!! Wish they had more parking too.

We found the food at Elements to be excellent as was the service. We shared the beet salad and bread basket, the Chinese buns in the basket were interesting and went well with the salad. The beet salad was well done, though I thought the carrot curls accompanying the salad were too long and care was needed with the beet juice.

The Hanoi Lamb was the best lamb dish I have ever had, and the sea bass my wife had was excellent as well. I am not sure I could go back to Elements and try anything different unless they take the lamb off the menu, I'll have to get it every time I go.

The only quibble I have is with the seating, I found the chairs quite uncomfortable
