Description: Coriander Leaf - a well-loved Singaporean name - reopened its flagship restaurant at CHIJMES in June 2015. Expect a new Modern Asian experience with a menu that embodies the region's myriad of flavours paired with brilliant small batch wines from around the world. This latest evolution marks Coriander Leaf's 14th year in the business and celebrates food and wine at its finest.

Great food, high quality ingredients. Nice to have different cuisines in one menu. All dishes were great, especially the lamb chops. Service was attentive and professional. Why only a rating of 4? The restaurant atmosphere was a bit lacking. No outside tables, and the space did not feel very cosy.

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.

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.

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.

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!
