I came to this place with a reservation for just myself and left feeling disappointed. When I came in, the staff sat me at a cramped, empty bar in the back that they were clearly using for storage rather than seating customers. They claimed they...needed to "find" me a seat (which they never did), and this was odd as I had a reserved a table with them months in advance. I ordered chicken momo with a tomato relish for my appetizer and cumin lamb for my main course, and while the presentation was nice, both items tasted bland and rather overcooked. For my dessert, I ordered avocado ice cream with melaka sago, and it was not as not as flavorful as I was expecting it would be. Lastly, the service was okay, though when I ordered my dessert, it took the staff a strangely long time to bring it out compared to my appetizer and main. I was hoping to like this place thanks to its multicultural menu, so I'm disappointed by the food and service I received.More

Came here for a business lunch and the staff are amazing! Walked in and didn't have to wait to be shown to my table I reserved. The food is just amazing even for a lunch set. You know how some places always scrimp on ingredients...for lunch sets right? They don't. The Thai style lunch set I ordered came with perfectly cooked fish, juicy eggplants and the loveliest salad. Give it a whirl if you are in the area! (Special mention to Din who helped with the booking on such a super last minute notice. He is so so nice!)More

What a way to introduce ourselves to Singapore. We chanced upon this spectacular modern pan asian restaurant in our first evening. We managed to get a stable without booking. But I wouldn’t risk it again. This is great. We had miso cod and duck curry...with green peppercorns, curry leaves and lychees. Hugely impressed. Thank you.More

Excellent food with really great service. We loved every dish. Eating gluten free safely was a breeze because they were very knowledgable! The atmosphere is super nice too.

We received a great welcome and were served very quickly. The food was amazing, everything from duck pancakes to jackfruit curry to spinach parcels. So many flavours, very diverse and each one was as good as the last. The restaurant is a great place to...relax and the waiters make you feel very welcome. The Chijmes location is a great display of colonial Singapore but it’ is a shame that the elevator constantly has wooden boards on the walls.More

Fantastic atmosphere, great staff who were very helpful in advising us for ordering for a large group of 8. Food was outstanding, especially the salads, soooo tasty. Food came out quite quickly which suited us. Set in the Chijmes complex which is a fantastic night...time destination. Highly recommended.More

We phoned and booked (what we thought) was a table for two. On arrival we were told that the only seating was at the counter. When we go out to a not inexpensive restaurant we don’t want to be seated at a counter thank you...very much. If you can’t accommodate us at a proper table then don’t book us in!!!More

Booked a table online. When we turned up, we were advised to take a seat at the bar while a couple was just finishing up and table became free. Few mins later Malani ( restaurant manager) approches that we can only sit at the bar...there is no table. She continued to state the clause in the booking around tables... I thought she was rude, didn' t even offer a drink or if you would like to wait for a table etc. Resturant is very big, so I cannot belive a table would not have freed up. The customer service from the manager was appauling! Not apologetic at all.More

Our recent experience at Coriander Leaf left us very disappointed. We had friends visiting from overseas who were appalled with the experience. One of our guests has an allergy to nuts and eggs. When placing the order, we were all VERY explicit in requesting our...server to inform us whether any of the dishes we had ordered contained the allergens. The Muhamarrah ofcourse had walnuts which she forgot to mention and our guest had an immediate reaction on ingestion. Though our server was apologetic and took accountability, we were shocked that this matter which could have been potentially life threatening was not taken seriously by the restaurant. The manager was obviously not informed about the incident . On a separate note, the food was very average . I don’t think we will go back again.More

If I could award Michelin Stars this place would get one. Or five. Or whatever the maximum is. Just had lunch here and in a foodie city this place stands out. The food is EPIC! From the variety to the flavor to the presentation. Perfection....The service deserves recognition too. Attentive, informative, helpful. Just wow and very well done. Thank you.More

Really loved the atmosphere of this restaurant. I sat up at the bar/kitchen counter which I highly recommend if ever dining solo or in a two as you get to watch the team in action! Staff were just attentive enough to make you feel well...looked after without being all over you. Food is just delicious. I am a vegetarian so this was a big draw. The vegetarian menu is extensive and all the flavours in what I ate complimented each other well. The coconut ice cream dessert was a beautiful end to my meal. The complimentary appetiser was a real bonus, and I highly recommend adding the chilli piece that arrives with it. The warmth of flavour sat in my mouth for the next 5 minutes and was really pleasant.More

This a wonderful find especially for those with dietary requirements. They handle gluten free correctly. The food is high quality and there is a wide variety. Service is friendly and attentive. We (party of four) had a wonderful meal and experience.

Really not a great experience for $100 / person. Coriander Leaf feels like a restaurant that has been cashing in on a formula for far too long. The dishes are reasonably creative and tasty, and a quick check on Google proves that almost everything we...ordered was on the menu back in 2019, so they ought to be well-practiced at this stage. Dishes arrive overly quickly and staff are encouraging you to order more. Two of us ordered cocktails which were small and not at all interesting. The charcoal-grilled broccoli tasted burnt and not charred (this is a fine line when you attempt to char broccoli). The jackfruit curry was delicious but a touch too spicy (in my opinion). Crabcakes were good too, but tiny and not in any way unique to this restaurant. Watermelon and pomelo salads both looked great in the menu description, but totally don't hit the mark (fruit ratio is way too high). The wok-fried cumin lamb lacked any real punch and was chewy - any delicacy the meat may have had was long gone by the time it reached our table. Dessert was the highlight - we shared the Sampler B in which the ice cream sandwiches and rose pavlova really stood out, but not enough food for the three of us. I felt like there is nothing here that isn't done better elsewhere. Yes, there is a lot to be said for the overall eclectisism of the menu, but not at that price point. This is not experiential dining - and it should be - due to the bland ambience of the restaurant. The open kitchen cannot rescue the fact that the lighting is wrong and the staff cannot instill a sense of occasion with food that lands on your table moments after you ordered it. Time to change the formula.More
