Tried the standalone Cilantro restaurant in sultan road for lunch today after having a good experience in Tahir Cilantro. No disappointment and enjoyed the meal.

Great place to go in the evening to relax with Indian food. Well cared for and pleasant atmosphere and helpful staff. The food is very good. Choices in Kano to eat out are pretty limited so you may visit this place quite often if you are in town for a while.

I visited based on Trip Advisors rating and I wasn't disappointed. It was daunting getting a cab who could locate the place and I had to rely on google maps to guide me. The restaurant was neat and welcoming, service was unimaginably fast but then I was the only one in the restaurant at that time. Staff were welcoming as... More
