The only thing that would make the meal better is an outdoor area. It was hands-down the best meal I have eaten in KL! And the best meal I have had in a while. The service was outstanding. The wines paired very well with the food.

I've been dining at Cilantro for years, and I have not once left disappointed. The food is always perfect, with top-notch ingredients, beautiful presentation, and delectable taste. My particular favorites are the cold angel hair pasta for appetizer (refreshing, flavorful) and lamb for entree (tender, juicy, rich). But no matter what you get, you can't go wrong.

We has the degustation menu, and the food spread was good. Ingredients were very fresh. The chef did a decent job attempting to fusion Japanese elements and flavours in french cuisine (and vice versa). The price was (in our opinion), abit overpriced, at rm480 per pax. The wine selection is impressive, and the prices are very reasonable. Could be because... More

We had lunch there on a Friday, normally they only do dinners but every Friday, they do luncheon with a set menu, it's about US$50 a head including a glass of wine or bubbles. My husband, two kids and I all enjoyed every course. The menu is very innovative, the chef is French-Japanese influenced, good selection of wine and service... More

Cilantro has somehow evolved into our family's "go to" restaurant for a special New Year meal. Whilst the saucing remains precise, there is a feeling that it is starting to become formulaic the quality of the ingredients is, as always beyond reproach, and the portions are skilfully managed so that one never leaves the table feeling too full, nor feeling...
