“Lovely night put”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Wanted a break from the food courts and chose Coriander Leaf. Not disappointed, and there are hundreds of choices in Singapore. The first attraction was Chijmes, which is an old convent which has been transformed into a beautiful space for restaurants. The lighting and atmosphere make this place really magical in the evening. It is a relaxed place where food and friends come together in a spectacular setting. One slight disappointment was the location which is upstairs, and a little away from the main courtyard. It would have been nice to have some views of the outside. We enjoyed everything we ordered. They even have a separate menu with vegetarian options segregated out. I would say that prices are moderate for smallish servings. It is like a small plates menu, with the idea of tasting many items and sharing. Probably 2 menu items per person. The braised beef brisket deserves special mention, as does the crispy duck mandarin pancake, and the Nepalese chicken momo. We enjoyed everything we ordered. Very nicely presented. Service was attentive and reasonably quick.

“Fantastic menu and location”

Beautiful setting in a former convent (Chijmmes). Excellent menu and service. Set lunch is a great value, but we also ordered many side dishes. Beef brisket bun and tofu dishes were favorites. Highly recommend visiting.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

During a workshop in Singapore our hosts arranged for a group meal here and also arranged a set menu with multiple choices.
It was a very hard choice as they were all so good and you really wanted to try more than one of them.
Its a real mix of asian or rather asian flavours but mixed together so its not one country or another its a union of multiple resulting in a very different experience.

“Amazing. Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

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!

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

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.
