💰: $20-30 per person. 🥡: Pretty authentic Chinese food. 👍Will highly recommend if you would like to have some homemade style Chinese dishes. They also keep updating their menus every month and order some time-limited food.🤗 💁: The staff are super friendly and kind. Surprisingly, they also have app and web to order takeout without markups.

Ask Micheal! He is the nicest concierge of the restaurant, definitely making my visit more enjoyable. He guide me to the exact food I want, especially when I have a hard time to decide what dishes from hundreds of them on the menu. This place is worth to try whenever you want spicy Chinese food. Best authentic Sichuan Chinese food is the area.

The best food I’ve had outside of China in a long time. The atmosphere of the restaurant makes you feel like your in a restaurant in China. The food was amazing, we good not stop eating. We starting with the Mapo tofu which went perfectly with the bowl of rice absorbing all the delicious sauce, my favorite was the spicy chicken which was the best I have ever had! The fish was also so flaky and juicy too. Would came back to Maryland just to eat here again!

Chef Lee's Element A.K.A 小厨厚德

      Szechuan (Szechwan/Sichuan) cuisine originated in the Sichuan Province of southwestern China. It is famed for bold flavors, particularly the pungency and spiciness resulting from liberal use of garlic and chili peppers, as well as the unique flavor of the Sichuan peppercorn. Although it is most famous for the electrifying use of chilies and lip-tingling Sichuan peppercorns, the heart of the local style of cooking lies in the artful mixing of flavors, hence the name of restaurant "ELEMENT". Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, was designated by UNESCO to be a city of Gastronomy in 2011.
