Best Place.

The Dome Bar n Cilantro are the best. The bar with an open lobby is the most attractive. Sure no other hotel has such a big lobby. Servuce @ the bar is also good. Food at cilantro is at its best. Love the curry leaf prawn and travancore chicken. The veg kabab platter is mouth watering. On the whole... read more

Food was good but the service can be improved with respect to time taken to deliver ordered items. The ambiance was nice and the taste of the food was good. The place is easily accessible

I went with friends for dinner. The staffs greeted us warmly. The ambience was classy. It was quite a spread. Indian and Continental cuisines were top notch. In specific kolathur fish curry and chicken with spinach and cheese were excellent. Pasta is good. More varieties of pasta could have been managed. Chinese cuisine was not so good. Desserts could have... More

After some deliberation my family decided to go to Cilantro, Le Royal Meridien, Chennai for Christmas Brunch. A huge Christmas Tree at the lobby lifted our spirit. Apart from that I could not see any Christmas decoration. Of course the staff at Cilantro were donning Santa Hats. The spread was great. Among them I mention a few which I liked.... More

Went to this restaurant for my anniversary. Veg Buffet. Good spread, especially the starters and desserts. However, the main course options(Punjabi) for a veggie were limited and the 2 dishes that were there were themselves exotic ones. One suggestion - there should be atleast one stock/standard item in each cuisine(punjabi, chinese etc) which carries the day if the rest fail.... More

Salads are the best bet you can start. You got options of north indian, Chinese, etc. I was happy to see a section for South Indian incl, sambar,... More

This is a very good place with an interactive chef which was a different experience. Everyone enjoyed their food. Not too much variety for vegetarians though which was expected.

Have been there for a kick-off meeting and being it a weekday there were hardly 10 guests and we went as team of 20 to take over the restaurant completely :) Being a vegetarian i'm not left with too many varieties but my colleagues are pretty satisfied with the non-vegetarian dishes ! The biggest disappointment that i would say would... More
