The success of Coriander Leaf is not only a reflection of the fine dining cuisine served in its stylish and relaxed bistro, but also of its unique âAsian Food Hubâ concept within Singapore. It features an exciting Pan-Asian menu, which embraces highly flavorful dishes from Lebanon, Iran, Pakistan, India, Myanmar.
In recent years, the foodie scene in Clarke Quay has sadly taken on something of a secondary citizenship with most punters heading down there to frequent the bouncing, rambunctious clubs and bars that overflow with party people on the weekend.
Within the giant, covered complex that is Clarke Quay, there is however at least one bastion of culinary awesomeness still remaining - Coriander Leaf.
Founded by Executive Chef Samia Ahad, Coriander Leaf is one of the few restaurants to successfully offer a fusion of cuisines from both East and West, although I should probably call the cuisine 'Pan-Asian'. On the menu, you can find items ranging from Middle Eastern Falafel to Vietnamese Summer rolls.
Having eaten at Coriander Leaf more times that I can remember, here are a few recommendations from this Nomad....
The platters! One of Coriander Leaf's signatures are their platters; Pan Asian, Asean, South Asian (Vegetarian) or Mezze. Having tried all of them myself, you really can't go wrong with any of them. However, I'm definitely partial to the Asean platter ($18 for 1pax, $34 for 2pax) -
coming with a delicious Tom Yam soup, some of the best crab cakes you will ever eat, a salad of pomelo, mango and smoked duck and of course some softshell crab, fried calamari and Vietnamese rolls served with a heavenly peanut/sweet chili sauce. Dee-lish.
As for mains..there really is something for everyone here. From Tandoori to pastas and plenty of vegetarian-
friendly dishes as well.

with its white and green decor and signature fresh coriander leaf prints, the place is a must-go for middle eastern cuisine. i participated in their arabian nights class which taught us how to prepare roasted red pepper dip, Palestinian bbq chicken and egyptian lentils. the class also taught us how to make our dishes more visually pleasing to the eye. great friendly cooking instructor made the whole session all the more enjoyable.
I was invited for a baby bath and 20 pople started to cook there own food under the supervision of 3 chefs. The vegitables where fresh and the meat excellent. We totally enjoyed the entertaining evening. Finally the food was great - we made it - but the whole idea of guiding you through the cooking process was entertaining. As the restaurant belongs to the screeningroom-group my expectations where high but I highly enjoued the evening.
We went for a birthday party, a group of 15...and it was the best service, atmosphere, food and wine.
We had a set menu and I wouldn't have it any other way because you get to try so much! I will go again, over and over!
BEST YOGURT DIP EVER!
