Hosted a dinner there last night in a private room. This was my third visit. The staff work with you to ensure your evening goes exactly to plan. The food was excellent, the wine list is exceptionally good value especially for a hotel restaurant. They happily opened and decanted my wine in advance so that it would be perfect for... More

The weekly Friday lunch at Cilantro remains the best high-end dining experience in KL. The quality of the food is very fine. Much praise must also go to Guillaume for his attentive service and vast knowledge of wine.

We went today for the second time in a week and despite a full house Ridnie and Guilleaume ,MD and Sommelier, respectively, provided excellent service with a smile. The food is of high quality and the pacing of the meal near perfect. We are regulars, but everyone seems to enjoy themselves in the friendly atmosphere. The wine service is outstanding... More

Dined here with my 2 daughters, we all chose the 3 course Tasting Menu. The girls were looking forward to the truffle butter with bread. The butter was as good as we remembered but the bread basket was rather mediocre. I wish the kitchen could do something to improve this as one of the highlights of fine dining is actually... More

It was our first visit after hearing a lot about this restaurant over the years. At reservation I was informed about the dress code (which was smart casual, no shorts etc. which made me wonder why it was necessary to be very specific about the don'ts). The restaurant is located in a serviced-apartments complex. The ambiance of the restaurant itself... More

Had the Friday lunch which was a good value of only RM150 nett inclusive of a glass of wine and water that accompanied the 4-course meal. Much raved about truffle butter was delicious, that I even had it on it's own. The starters were great and innovative, while ensuring flavours were all spot on. All the savory dishes showed a...
