We will continue to work harder to do better in appreciation to all who has supported our restaurant" quoted Chef Takashi, the Executive Chef when asked about the Cilantro Restaurant & Wine Bar which became the first Malaysian restaurant to make the top 10.

Cilantro Restaurant & Wine Bar an award-winning fine dining restaurant is one of the city's finest contemporary restaurants and famously renowned for its French cuisine with Japanese influence, a favourite amongst discerning diners, re-opened on December 18th 2009 after the hotel underwent a two year renovation project.

Cilantro Restaurant & Wine Bar, synonymous with Coriander or Chinese parsley, emphasises on freshness and simplicity. Dining at Cilantro is a true experience that awaits those who appreciate good food and impeccable service.

Setting the mood for a romantic dinner with the special one, Cilantro's muted colors and lighting make for an intimate environment. The ambience complements the easy leisurely pace; this is surely not a venue for the quick-fix lunch and dinner.

"Although inspired by French cuisine, Cilantro forms a unique identity with a touch of exotic Asian ingredients. All ingredients are carefully selected and measured to perfection. Also seasonal, they are served only when the time is right" said Chef Takashi Kimura when asked to describe what reflects his idea of a great dish. He is convinced that the best-tasting meal one has ever had is not solely because of the quality of the ingredients itself. With the appropriate cooking method and correct seasoning, it can be very memorable.

A customized menu will be developed in advance for large parties and seasonal change of menus is tailored to tantilise even the most discerning taste buds.
