One of our dinner nights we planned to drop by Cilantro, Restaurant was well open and had a open kitchen. Menu was with many choices and can satisfy any palate.,. The waiting person was very friendly and food and beverage came on to table with good pase. "Roast pan" a kind of bread Sri Lankans eat was presented with butter before other food pop in, every body liked the hot crispy Roast Pan... My kid ordered a ice tea and it was nice but a bit sweet. Mix grill and stuffed calamari was perfect Sea food friedrice with prawns paste was juce... Overall I would say this spot is one of the best places to have a good meal experience. It will satisfy most of your senses.

We came here on our first evening in Sri Lanka and were surprised very positively. We had an excellent Tuna exactly as ordered (well done) and a Chicken Curry - spicy of course but well eatable for European tastes. Very friendly staff, fair prices. No question - we'll come again.

We chose the Thai option and were not disappointed. The Pad Thai and the Red Chicken curry were both excellent. The service was good and the staff very friendly and attentive. There was also live music which gave a nice atmosphere. Worth a try if you fancy a change from Sri Lankan food

visited this lovely restaurant a few times with my wife whilst on holiday in Negombo. There was a lot of choice of dishes on the menu , something for everyone! Our waiter Vijea was very helpful and made sure we were happy throughout the meal. On the night we visited there was a live singer called Samantha. He was very good and sang both old and new songs. We enjoyed it so much we stayed in the restaurant long after we had finished our meal just to listen to the music.... if you ever stay in Negombo I could highly recommend this restaurant

My husband and I visited this restaurant a couple of times during our stay in Negombo. We couldn’t fault the service. Vijay, our waiter was excellent. He explained the menu to us and answered any questions we had. When the food arrived, we were not disappointed! The food was delicious. If you are ever in Negombo we would highly recommend a visit to Cilantro.

Tonight I had a fantastic meal and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend anyone in Negombo to try this place. I went for the veggie spring roll as a starter followed by tofu red Thai curry. The food was presented really well, tasted great and was very reasonably priced. The staff were very attentive, the chefs came out to check we were happy, which was a lovely touch. They have a Thai chef and the Thai food was very authentic. Thank you to all the staff for a great evening.

Four of us including one vegetarian chose this restaurant at random and we were glad we did. The menu out the front only has one veggo option but when I asked, I was very enthusiastically informed they could make me a veggie curry. It was the best meal I've had since I have been in Sri Lanka. Others in the group had the seafood and the green curry and were just as impressed. Service was outstanding (we asked for wine and they managed to dig up a nice South African white) and they presented us with complimentary desert. Both chefs came out to chat and the wait staff were attentive without being overbearing. We'll definitely go back.
