the place felt nice and cozy for a relaxing evening. Service was prompt and courteous. Though the buffet spread appeared inviting, the food quality failed to impress. Pizza we ordered at the live counter was a disaster. chinese spread looked good on table, but tasted average. only the indian and continental dishes were reasonable.

Have gone here several times for their wonderful buffet lunches/dinners. The food is varied and is good. The light local touches are well thought of and decently made. The decor is nice - but the music can get loud sometimes - but they will reduce the volume if you ask them to. In the end, it offers the best value... More

Been there on 21st for lunch. Was planning to start with continental food, but on chef's recommendation started with oriental food. The grouper fish preparation was excellent.

I had a complimentary breakfast, a lunch and a dinner. Breakfast was so nice with live kitchen chef preparing dosa and omlet. Idly was so puffy and nice. Saravanabhavan style of sambar and chutney was so tasty. Wonderful choice of food in Cilantro Restaurant. Good service staff.

We liked the food spread and the service. The fatty Chef was quite active and interactive. Especially, we liked South Indian Food very much. Finally, the deserts were mouth-watering.

I had one time dinner in the Banquet Hall as I attended the wedding reception. But, I had lunch in Cilantro Restaurant. I did not know what to choose as I saw a huge spread. I tasted a little of around 15 items of food and all were tremendously good and tasty. From the Manager down below, all were quite... More

Being a South Indian, I liked South Indian Food. Idly was no nice and accompaniments such as sambar and chutney were good. I also enjoyed the taste of lunch and dinner. Karthikeyan Chef had good interaction.
