We LOVED cilantro. It's more expensive than you would expect, but when you taste how fresh the food is it's worth it! The food is also high quality and you can taste the difference.

My wife and I stopped in Manchester for lunch and decided on Cilantro after reading the reviews here. Good good call! We had the special soup (Roasted Pablano) and special taco (Pork Belly), and they were outstanding. This place is amazing. Our new go-to lunch spot anytime we are near Manchester.

Watch as they make a huge flavorful burrito for you. Fresh and flavorful ingrediants, super-friendly staff, this has become our go-to place when we need a quick dinner. Or maybe we're just in the mood for any one of their menu items. Everything is excellent. Why a rating of 4 instead of 5? We would love to see more items... More

Cilantro reminds me of Mexican food in Los Angeles: fresh ingredients, cool people working behind the counter, & environmentally friendly utensils. The roasted chicken is delicious & I loved the street tacos with roasted corn.

Decent place for a quick lunch--or, in our case, a mid-afternoon light repast to hold us until dinner. Not much atmosphere, but food was good. Better for a snack than a meal, would be my summary.

This downtown Manchester "fast food" place serves gigantic tacos with delicious, fresh ingredients. It's mostly a take out place, but there are a few tables for eating in. If you have a big appetite this place can fill it.

The place was funky enough when I walked in to know that the food must be good. I ordered "The Hill of Beans". Wonderful choice that tasted very fresh and spiced just right. I will go there again the next time I am in town.
