I tried lunch as they start lunch only for Friday. But it just made me disappointed.. I need to try dinner one day. As far as I heard, dinner quality is really high.

If there is any restaurant worth reviewing in Kuala Lumpur, this is it!! We have always reserved this place for our special ocassions and it has never ever disappointed us. Dont let the dated ambience fool you, the dishes that the chef prepare with great detail and love are one of the most satisfying ever. We had to pre order... More

Had the degustation menu by Chef Takashi Kimura which was superb. Enjoyed the wine served downstairs at the cigar lounge which was very cozy. The staffs are very attentive and service is very good. Highly recommended for an enjoyable night out or for celebrations.

Enjoyed the degustation menu tremendously. Even the picky eater in our group finished everything. Highly recommended for fine dinners, on par with Michelin starred restaurants in the world. Wines are reasonably priced too.

The ambience of this restaurant is not too pleasing, the decoration is dated, not a place that you would expect to get fine dining. I went there based on some good reviews. The food is excellent, I like their angle hair pasta, their truffle flavour butter. Their menu is limited, but is a place worth revisiting.

We visited Cilantro on a recent trip to KL and we were completely blown away by the degustation menu - wow! We would go as far as to say - in the top three we have done in our travels. Every course was executed to extremely high standards and the flavour combinations just sensational - French Japanese fusion - who... More

Small menu - but excellent quality of ingredients. Modern french cooking and an impressive wine list. Go early, before your dinner, and enjoy a drink in their lounge downstairs!

On my way back to Singapore after a week travelling in MAlaysia I wanted to try again Cilantro. It is based on a hotel (or serviced apartments ???? really I don't know); so location is not the best you could expect. Ambience is also a bit too dark, and for sure not contemporary. But it was voted one of the... More
