Our cuisine combines classical as well as modern Asian and European cooking techniques to enhance the flavors of local and sustainable ingredients.

                          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.

                          The food was delicious as always, the prawns are a favorite, but also tried something new and it was delicious as well. Nice drinks, very comfortable and was a pleasure to speak with the owner. A nice touch for Mother's day was a yellow rose.

Our server, Raymond always delivers quality service. We have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed.

                          Once again, we had an excellent evening at Elements. There are few restaurants that we just can't stay away from, but this is one we visit almost everything we visit UNC. Excellent food and the service is incredible. The walnut honey prawns are a favorite, but the new menu was very tempting!

                          Highly recommended! the Brussels spout app--whole table loved! not your normal version with bourbon or maple either which makes it even more enjoyable, the Salmon Wellington beautiful puff pastry wrapped around delicate salmon --delicious ! other members of my party loved the blu claw popper appetizer. Certainly talk to the sommelier if possible, my table found her entertaining and incredibly informative. Fabulous evening with staff and food! We ate in the wine room and had a private night of fun! This is a MUST VISIT for on our next trip to Chapel Hill.

                          Elements is reliably wonderful for creative, inventive Asian food. Very nice sheltered outdoor seating under cover, a bit close to the parking lot but it doesn't matter if you dining with good friends who love fine food. Try the coconut cake. Delish. We order it with extra spoons. Everyone wants a taste.

                          Let’s just face the fact that Elements is THE BEST restaurant in Chapel Hill. We had a wonderful meal last night - with a darling and attentive waiter in a beautiful room. The owner came tableside to talk to us. They make you feel like family…IF your family had a world class restaurant! Love it.
