My first visit after a long time. Love their Friday's lunch menu. Cilantro has set lunches on Fridays and set dinners other days. Closed Sundays. First up, Capellini Spring Seafood, a wonderfully prepared starter with springy angel hair pasta, topped with fresh salmon and calamari. Two bites to finish, and I'm on to the entreé, Scallops on Morell sauce which... More

Had a wonderful meal at Cilantro last night. We haven't been back in awhile so it was a lovely treat to go back. The restaurant itself is a bit tired and dated. Could do with a serious revamp. The food is delicious, however even though it was only a third full they had 1 dish of Unagi and foie gras... More

Went here for dinner. The food was good. We ordered a glass of wine each. The glasses of wine were brought to the table without the waiter/floor manager(French) first showing us the bottle. So, I sent him back downstairs to bring the bottle so that I could see the details. He could have poured us a cheep red for all... More

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.
