We are a family who loves Indian food and found the Cilantro tandoori chicken and naan to be exquisite. Cilantro is located in a tree lined area of serenity. Do visit here for a cold beer, good food and a chill out.

Superb food in an amazing setting. You have the feeling you are in the middle of a forest. Asked for extra spice with my curry and they didn’t disappoint. Will revisit for sure next time I’m in Abuja.

Took the family out for lunch and decided to try Indian fare. Good service, neat dining space, very good food. It is what it says it is a restaurant serving primarily Indian cuisine, yes you would find chicken and fries but if your palate is...not attuned to south East Asian cuisine you might be a bit disappointed. But having said that the menu is quite varied so you should find something that’s suits your taste. I found the prawn and sesame toast slices delightful. The location can be very busy during holidays so book ahead or be ready to wait for space.More

I highly recommend this restaurant. the butter chicken, garlic naan and curry...lamb were exceptional. Very nice bottle of South African wine fairly priced.More

Very good Indian dishes, curries with nan are just the best. There is also wider selection of Chinese food. They also sell alcohol. Not forgetting the gardens are amazing, you can simply say the best outdoor eating place in Abuja. There are times they host...big events and it can get really packed, so be sure to book in advance if you intend to host people.More

This was my second visit to Cilantro, Abuja ( and second visit to Abuja too !) .... its my favourite restaurant in Abuja The layout is in a private estate and spread across... giving you the required sense of space and calm. The food compares...with the best that we have in India ... so my title says “superlative indian food” Highly recommendedMore
