We hadn't been to Coriander's - St Asaph for some years but with new owners in place and good reviews we decided to try it again. We weren't disappointed from the time we arrived till the time we left the staff were welcoming, informed and gave great service. The restaurant was busy but the atmosphere relaxed. The dishes were delicious with a menu catering for all tastes...we'll be back!

Service was disgraceful. Food was almost inedible which ensures you cannot in good conscience finish your meal without concern for your guests or your own well-being.

Cannot believe that this venue has such a high ranking. As a visitor to this city, I can only imagine it must be due to extreme lack of decent competition.

Will never return.

I was planning on ordering Uber Eats.
Excited when I saw there was a new restaurant called Vegan Indian.
However I was disappointed when I realised that it was Corianders St Asaph.
Yes a business can change its name however this involves an official (legal) name change.
For a business to misrepresent itself is misleading advertising, meh disappointing.

Wow - what a fantastic place to come for a meal. Came without a booking and really made to feel welcome. Gorgeous interior and lots of good seating options. The service was fantastic - we were looked after really well during the time we were there.

When we sat down we were given complimentary poppadoms and the sorbet as a palate cleanser between the entree and main was such a lovely touch.

So many meal options from the menu options - huge variety to choose from. The meal was fantastic - all the options we picked were really tasty and filling. We had the chefs sizzling platter for entree along with the poppadoms and side dish platter of pickles, raita and chutney. We had the lamb rogan josh and butter chicken along with garlic naan. All super tasty!

We will definitely be back - lovely food and service . Thoroughly recommend.
