Cilantro under chef Takashi Kimura is one of the best cook in town. This French Japanese fusion cuisine is always so creative and interesting. Food is very tasty and ingredients were very fresh. There are 3 choices, 3 course, 4 course and their degustation menu, which is a 7 course meal. The only setback is that if one person orders... More

I read about this place from some food magazine and got interested. In fact - the hotel where the restaurant is and the restaurant itself is looking very old. And not in a good classical way. So my disappointment started from there. The food was really nothing special. Very random. But the prices were really high. Would not recommend this... More

I have been eating at Cilantro over the past 20 years. Last night we took another couple for a nice fine dining experience. Well, as always, the food met expectations - it was extraordinary...beautifully prepared and presented and a delight on the palate. The service could not have been worse. They were slow, they got things wrong, they didn't know... More

Cilantro is a fine dining restaurant where you can enjoy some Japanese food cooked with French techniques. The wine list is a plus and the lunch formula is worth it

Still probably one of the best fine dining places in town with good food prepared to a reasonably consistent formula with nice creative touches. But it is definitely pricey so reserve for corporate entertainment or very special occasions. The restaurant itself needs a stylish facelift as it is looking tired with faded elegance. Service is still very good.

We drove 20 miles there, based on the strength of the menu, mainly monkfish & lamb shank. Neither were available because the menu has changed. We were told pangasius is the same quality as monkfish. This is absolute rubbish, it's from the Mekong river and is tasteless and watery (and cheap), whereas monkfish is an upmarket delicous fish. Very disappointing,... More

The venue for the hotel where Cilantro is located was not the easiest to find as Micasa Hotel is snuggled in the midst of several other newer high-rise buildings. We were fortunate enough to be led to the restaurant from one of the car park entrances whom we coincidentally bumped into. Seated and eager to try out the highly acclaimed... More

Excellent Restaurant of the same level of the best ones in towns, Chynna, Sage. Fetuccini's with sea urchins exelent! Unagi with foie gras very rare combination, excellent, crab risotto excelent. Have to improve the deserts. Excelent wine list, and excellent Somelier.

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
