Extraordinary food and service in this centrally located gem... probly the best restaurant you'll eat in that month, if not year. Small but mighty.

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...

Cilantro is definitely worth a visit. While you could order anything on the menu and not go wrong. I went with a friend who is KL born and bred and she insisted I have the chocolate pudding with earl grey sorbet. I'm still grateful. BYO wine if possible. The wine list is pricey.

After reading some of the recent positive reviews, I decided to book the degustation dinner on New Year's Eve during our visit to Kuala Lumpur. The evening started off very well, and we were very pleased with the look and atmosphere of the restaurant. As we finished our third course of the meal, the evening began to change for the... More

The food was really good, but the service was just so-so. Price is considered on the medium high side. It's located at a rather dodgy place. Environment was just normal and it was a rather small restaurant. Will go again, but not the first choice.

We chose the 4-course menu (2 starters) and we ordered a champagne (Ayala 2002) for the whole meal, The chef is inspired by French and Asian (Japanese mostly) cuisine and overall the dishes were quite good and fine. Be ready for very small portions though, especially for the main course - I picked the poussin (baby chicken), I got about... More

We returned to Cilantro for our greatest pleasure. The wine menu is still amazing. The quality of the food, the delicate presentation and the excellent service makes Cilantro one of the best restaurant in town. The only negative point would concern the air conditioning which is too high. It could be reduced.

about 16 of us had a delicious meal. The bread with truffle butter was great, followed by mushroom and artichoke soup. Sea bream with vegetables followed by Wagyu beef. So delicious! Desert a chestnut freuillantine with coffee and wine. The service was excellent.
