The prices may be a bit high, but the quality is consistent, the restaurants are clean, the food tastes good, the service is friendly... what's not to like? Element Fresh is one of my favorite places to eat at in Shanghai.
We went to mexo for a thursday lunch and ended up buying a set of food with appetizer, main and desert and cola for 140 rmb. The amount of food we got was huge, and the with lots of beef (which is rare for shanghai). Not the best view but the food was great for a reasonable price. Highly recommend
Disappointing place, from start to finish. Not a good beginning, the wine we ordered wasn't chilled (and this in a place that supposedly advertises itself as a wine destination) and the shared tapas plate we ordered to start consisted of a few small pieces of limp cold cuts and lots of salad leaves. Oddly it was missing half the listed ingredients (roasted vegetables, artichoke hearts etc) with the amazing excuse from our waitress that "Chinese customers didn't like those things, so we just leave them off to avoid wastage"! At our request she brought the missing items which turned out to be some tired-looking shaved cheese and some dreary roasted peppers, but alas the artichoke hearts never made it to the table. Next up were the mains, from a choice of prawns, lamb, chicken, beef etc. they sounded promising but alas more ho-hum. The course sizes were ridiculously small (one of our party got two miserably tiny lamb chops on a plate, that's all, for 168rmb) and although the prawns were okay, three prawns for 158rmb with a miserably tiny little bit of cous cous and a couple of minute pieces of asparagus failed to impress. Understandably still hungry one of our party ordered dessert but true to form the "crème brûlée" when it arrived was just frankly woeful, clearly the chef has never actually seen this dish before as it was not vaguely like crème brûlée. Add to that the fact that we poured our own wine for the entire night - no idea what our waitress was doing, but it wasn't keeping an eye on our table in a fairly deserted restaurant - and this was a dismal experience at best and we left as early as we could. Shanghai really lacks good quality places with decent food and attentive trained staff, and unfortunately this is just such another disappointing, overpriced Shanghai dining 'experience'.
Very nice shop!Have been to many times.Like in such a comfortable environment for dining, the waiter is good .If you come for the first time, the world will help you recommend some special food.Especially like the steak, very delicious!Very tender!Very fresh!For a lot of time in some different steak, "perfect" is a word.The wine here is good also, listen to the boss a lot of wine from producers, very pure!Also I'll be back
This is my first review in 7 years in Shanghai, and let me say there is good reason for it!
Dali's is the best burrito I have had in SH hands down. With all due respect to my other favorite Mexican spots, this burrito killed it. I had the chipotle chicken and my wife had beans + cheese. I liked mine better because the chicken had great spicy sauce, but both were really good. The guacamole was very tasty - small portion but only 20 RMB. The burritos come with chip/salsa/jalapenos/sour cream for free.
Literally spent half the meal talking about how friction good the burrito was - trust me and try it.
Tuesday is margarita + burrito for 75 RMB (great value IMO), so all said in done we spent only 170 for a quality meal and even had leftovers from one burrito.
