The service overall was over our expectations. Very authentic of southern west Chinese flavor with just perfect spicy level for most of the dishes. We have been here a lot of times for dine-in and delivery services and it never let us down! Love monthly new added dishes like Beer Braised Duck, Sizzling Squid, Chongqing Style Noodles. If you don’t like spicy food, some non-spicy dishes are also very delicious.

The best Sichuan restaurant in Montgomery county! The flavor is authentic and the price is fair. My favor dishes are the spicy squid and tender fish. I am not sure those are the exact names on the manual so I uploaded the pictures. They never fail my expectation. If you haven't try them yet, I highly recommend them to you.

One of my favorite Chinese restaurant in MoCo. Really authentic style of food. Staffs are friendly. Reasonable priced but food can be too spicy for some people. If you like spicy food, I highly recommend this place!

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.
