Walked in with my friends expecting a hearty meal and some drinks. Was completely blown away by the professionalism and attitude of the staff towards the guests and service alike. Everything was simply marvelous starting from being greeted by the staff when we walked in,...all the way to the end when it was time to leave after having throughly enjoyed each and every aspect of the experience. Not to mention the cocktails made by Rohan who went above and beyond to make sure we were made to feel welcome and almost "home-like". Will definitely go back the next chance I get and also recommend everyone reading this review to try it out as well. Will not disappoint.More

We usually mostly do Indian takeaways but decided to head in to Corianders so we could indulge in a platter that is best enjoyed in house. We ordered the tandoori platter that came with prawns, fish, lamb and chicken. Everything was delicious especially the chicken...and lamb. They were cooked to perfection and bursting with flavour. To follow we had the prawn handi masala and the aloo jeera accompanied by an onion kulcha which we really enjoyed. Service was great and we staggered ordering to make sure we could take our time. We will be back.More

I have just visited the restaurant as indication by a local friend for lunch. I have to say it was the best Indian food i had for long time. Firstly i was welcomed by their waiter (which normally works on their Rollerston branch), he was...amazing. We have ordered starters, Juice and mains for three of us and the price was fair for the amount of food. Naan bread was delicious also. Highly recommend the Butter chicken as it is the real one. Definitely going back and already looking forward to it. Note that the lunch menu is limited, so, worth going for dinner if you can, despite during lunch was very calm and relaxed environment.More

Everything works in this restaurant. Looking through the large window into the kitchen, the chefs are enjoying themselves. The front of house staff are just delightful. The end result is really amazing food. Live music just added to that special ambiance.

Food was tasty but it took forever to arrive, we were there for 2.5 hours and the last half hour that involved food. Got charged $10 for byo but had to wait an hour for a glass to arrive at the table... Good food but...would not recommend 😕More

We usually order individual mains but this evening we opted for the Coriander's Gold Banquet and we were super impressed. All of the food was lovely and the servings were really generous. The starters were especially good - such a big portion and great variety....We took leftovers home. Thanks for the great service, Faizan and others. We'll be back for sure!More

My partner and I went to the restaurant and we had an excellent experience. The food was delicious and Simran who was in charge of our table made the experience even better. She explained to us ever single detail about the food and made good...recommendations. I highly recommend this place for dinner.More
