Had a fantastic supper on our last night in Singapore. We sat at the bar facing the kitchen and were treated to expert advice from the head chef on our combination of dishes. Started with an Asian twist on G&Ts and had Sake with our selection of dishes to share: Samia's signature frontier chicken with the garlic naan bread, barbecued ray fin with the coriander rice and then the oven roasted rib eye before the spiced varlhona lava cake (definitely, food heaven) and white rabbit ice cream sandwiches. The most interesting and delicious food we've had for many years across many countries. Spicy, but not too hot. Staff were charming with just the right level of attention. And Samia signed a copy of her cookery book for us too. Please come to London!

This restaurant is truly special and you will not be disappointed with its unique tapis style Pan-Asian cuisine. The menu is constantly changing so don't be surprised to see items come and go as they are constantly experimenting with their dishes. We really enjoyed the beef brisket buns and the tiger prawns, but the highlight was the lamb. Everything is made fresh on-site so definitely a special restaurant, one of the best in Singapore that I have experienced.

I'm personally not a fan of sharing dishes but that was the recommendation on arrival. Choose three dishes each. I'm also pretty particular about what I eat... not overly keen on seafood however this was invariably chosen by one of my friends.
While what came out, while small in serving size... was certainly gourmet and the taste was fantastic. I even LIKED the sea bass!!

The restaurant is located upstairs at Chijmes so misses out on that outdoor feel but the decor Is modern and the layout well appointed so you aren't missing out on much.

Service was excellent - very attentive staff.
A great place to go if you are wanting some intimacy or the chance to talk.

Highly recommend a visit!

We were a group of four and ordered a variety of dishes to share. This was lucky because all of the food was delicious and it would have been a shame to miss any of it. Service was friendly and helpful.

My wife and I decided to return to Coriander Leaf on a whim last Saturday. It better than ever! The staff are just wonderful - they kill you with kindness and attention. This is a superbly run restaurant - even before you get to the food.
We had our favorite dishes - memorable stuff and we never get tired of their signature chicken dish. Interestingly, they have a separate menu for vegetarians - its just an extract from their main menu but it obviously it makes it easier for vegetarians to identify their dishes rather than sift through the main menu. Good thinking!
Also, they have revamped their wine list with some very interesting Italian, Aussie and Kiwi wines. There is a superb Pinot Noir from Bellvale (2007 vintage if my memory serves me correctly) - a serious Burgundy look a like if ever there was one - just lovely and not overly expensive. Also, they have a couple of aged iconic Aussie reds from the early 2000's that look to be excellent value (we did not try any but they look to be great value).
We had a glass of their house pour Clare Valley Riesling (by Tim Adams none the less!) Goes well with the more spicy dishes.
We love this place - its great food and good value for money.

Thank you so much!! It is reviews like this (and I notice this is your 3rd one of us) that makes this sometimes harrowing and brutal business (although immensely rewarding) all worthwhile. We are very passionate about what we do and am happy to see that it shows and is both recognised and appreciated. Am also happy to see that you noticed the change in our wine list - and I agree that Bellvale Pinot Noir is my favourite.Thank you again and look forward to both serving and seeing you here again. My very best, Samia
