From the moment you walk in to the last delicious morsel you will taste, we promise to deliver a unique and exquisite dining experience. Our cuisine combines classical as well as modern Asian and European cooking techniques to enhance the flavors of local and sustainable ingredients.

    Elements is always dependable and we have been eating there for many years. The food is different from every day eating and that is a pleasure. The bento box at lunch is always a delightful surprise and the walnut prawns at dinner is a sure winner. Quiet, sophisticated atmosphere with excellent service.

    Wonderful covered outdoor seating on a beautiful evening. Delicious food and excellent service. We are not usually big fans of fried spring rolls, but we tried them here because the filling sounded so interesting. They were excellent and came with appropriately sized lettuce leaves to wrap around the rolls.

    We hadn’t been to Elements for quite some time due to the pandemic, so returning for dinner inside was very special. I forgot how much I missed this wonderful restaurant - the quality and flavors of the food, the wonderful wine selection, superb service and ambiance. One of, if not the best restaurant in Chapel Hill.

    Three of us ate at Elements and our meals were delicious. One person had the Salmon Wellington and raved about it, I had the Saigon noodles which are an absolute favorite of mine, and our last friend enjoyed the shrimp tacos and burrata salad. The food is very, very good. The only downside is cost. Saigon noodles used to cost 28 dollars and is now 34 dollars. So, just be prepared to pay a premium. With that said, I cannot wait to return and have another dinner of those delicious Saigon noodles.

    Everything on the menu was either fried or in a pastry. Food quality is good, but they need to offer more variety of food preparation. Also update your online menu more often. Showing up and most of the online menu is missing is annoying.

    ElementsResponded on June 4, 2022

    Hi ChoosyinCH, Thank you for your patronage at Elements. We are very sorry if your food time took a bit longer than usual. Sometimes this does happen depending on the volume of orders that come in or also depending on what dishes you order, such as the Salmon Wellington takes longer. In regards to Sushi, We have not had a Sushi Chef since August of 2021. It has been listed on our website as well as our opentable profile.

    We shared three small plates and one main, and it was more than enough food for the two of us. Our favorite dishes were the spring rolls and the Brussel sprouts. We also had the burrata and strawberry salad and the walnut prawns. The burrata was excellent, although the salad itself didn't quite stand up to it. We chose the walnut prawns because we'd never had them, and they were very tasty but a bit rich for our palates. No sushi available this time; seems they no longer have a sushi chef. We enjoyed our meal and the Spanish wine we ordered, but this didn't seem to be the standout that we've grown to expect.

    We ate outside because of the lovely weather. Thus there was a bit more noise and less "atmosphere" than being inside. This is one of our favorite restaurants and we often come here for special occasions. The food is outstanding & reasonably priced. The service, was likewise outstanding. The waiter was attentive without being intrusive. Clearly one of the restaurant gems in Chapel Hill.
