The food was interesting and tasty. The service was erratic. This could have turned into a disappointing evening as not one but two wine choices were unavailable. If particular wines are unavailable then you take them off your wine list. However we were offered complementary glasses of fizz which was acceptable. The puddings were very nice.

This is defined my favorite restaurant in Singapore. A mix of cuisine from the best countries of the world, from India to Japan by China etc... Very unique! You must try! We have been there many times and we have never been disappointed! Try the momo dumplings, miso cod, coriander salad, prawns salad and of course as a desert the white rabbit ice cream. You will love it. The staff is very attentive to every details and make sure you have a perfect moment in their company. Just love the place!

Seriously good food. Everything was delicious. Highlights were the crab croquettes and the kingfish. Chocolate lava cake is not to be missed. The service was attentive helpful and friendly.

Coriander Leaf was recommended by a friend living in Singapore. As it was our first visit to the country for, we decided to check it out...and sooooooo happy we did. Firstly, the decor is both fun, unusual, and romantic at the same time. Our wonderful waiter "James" truly added to the experience. He was knowledgable and helped us pick the perfect selections. His sense of humor made us feel welcome....and because my husband and I are both "foodies', he showed us their cooking school on site with private rooms. All spotless and well appointed. The menu selection for the class was mouth watering. We wished we had known about this as we definitely would have booked the experience!!... they also have a cookbook. The meal itself was a cornucopia of flavors.... different blends of herbs and spices made each dish unique and quite YUMMY! We ordered the watermelon, mint, pomegranate and cheese salad to start, the signature Frontier chicken ( divine) the sea bass and the delicious Ice cream sandwiches for dessert. Each dish was a discovery and all were wonderful. Service was impeccable and not only will we recommend to friends, but hope to go back one day on a return trip....

My wife and I have been living in Singapore for five years, and she recently started working at a university near Coriander Leaf. We thus imagined this restaurant as being one of our new go-to, after-work places for dinner.

Alas, it wasn't meant to be. After two dinner-time visits, one sitting at the bar in front of the kitchen, we won't be back. Service was spotty, as described in other reviews, and the food was uneven: some great dishes, but others not so much. We rather wished that hadn't sat within sight of the open kitchen; we observed a few bad habits that, while not overtly unsanitary, would have gotten me chewed out big-time back when I worked in a restaurant kitchen.

All in all, this was an acceptable place to dine, and we can see from nearby reviews on this page that others have enjoyed their experience more than we did. Fair enough. At this price point, though, it seems to us that there are several superior and more welcoming restaurant options in Singapore.
