Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 27 May 2023

Family dinner in town night - looked for something other than pub style or upscale restaurants. A few options but Cilantros tempted weary taste buds and fit the bill for including young teenagers. The restaurant is well located for easy street parking on Brockman Street....The interior is roomy and comprises two separate rooms - at entrance the usual tables and chairs for various seating number, plus a long wall length padded seat. The second room after passing the reception and bar area on the opposite side had booths. We sat at the reserved table and chairs option - this time. The menu options have a strong Indian flavour for both entrees and mains. We chose servings of samosas and gyoza style dumplings for entrees. For adult mains - keema curry and jeera rice, Vindaloo beef curry, and a prawn dish. The teens stuck to gyoza and a kids menu of non Asian. The food was well spiced and prepared, well presented. Other than the paneer curry dish, there weren't any other vegetarian dishes. Sadly, not possible for chef to prepare anything veg. The other Asian options looked appealing, if somewhat out of place in a mainly Indian style restaurant. It seems to work as the place was busy during the lunch service as well as dinner. The samosas were a stand out as was the accompanying green chutney - a non-greasy and rich flavoured pocket of flavours. Two per serving - so good we ordered 3 serves. The keema curry was a mix of beef and potatoes in a medium flavoured gravy, the rice a little overcooked but okay. The Vindaloo went down well as did the prawns. Really good Indian food flavours. The decor is a mix of ethnic and modern. It works. Yes - would go again next time I am visiting Manjimup. Thank you and Enjoy.More

This restaurant in the heart of Manjimup was a huge surprise. On entering, the decor was unique, welcoming. The menu gives a choice of normal mains or Indian. My Bengal lamb shank with eggplant was superb. With food this good, they should have been flat...out. The service was prompt and attentive without being intrusive.More

We booked a table for dinner for nine persons, and were glad we did as it was busy on Saturday. A few of us ordered lamb shank in Bengal curry and liked it. The gnocchi had a smooth texture, almost as if melting in the...mouth. The house red wine was passable. The bar tender was very sweet.More

We get take away from here weekly, but tonight we dined in and the food was spot on 👌 Both my kids ate a big majority of their meals, which is unusual for them, so highly recommend the kids meals. Always friendly staff and happy...to help. Thanks again Raj, Vani and staff. 🧡More

FANTASTIC food. always tasty with fresh and unique flavours. have been here a few times and always order something different. the curries are amazing, the meat tender and cooked beautifully. I had drunken noodles last time (delicious) and prawn dumplings which were sooo good. little...bit of heat but so much flavour. the inside is so gorgeous with intimate little booths and lovely colours and decor. I love this place. so special.More

incredible food!! such a beautiful atmosphere, lovely and intimate, curry is brilliant, and spring rolls. recommend any of the beef and lamb curries, and the ragu. the calamari is really yum but i think the show stopper is the spring rolls. so good!! prices are...really reasonable considering serving sizes. can’t wait we can dine in again it’s a lovely place. :)More

We only wish this place was in our town which is sorely lacking an Indian restaurant. However it's only 30 minute away so when we're in Manjimup we often grab a lunch-time curry. The vegetarian option is excellent and usually my choice, even though I'm...not a vegetarian. My lunch partner had rogan josh last time and it was excellent. The staff are friendly and the quality of the food and presentation is restaurant quality even though this is a quite humble looking cafe.More

Love Raj and his team. Everyone is so friendly and accomodating and most of all the food is AMAZING. A small intimate space which i find is great for a group of friends. Isnt much privacy with dining if you go as a couple and...there is a couple of large groups but maybe that is fine for some people. Fish cakes are a must try along with the fish curry and their rice is the best! I have been a fair few time to see Raj for birthdays, work catch ups, small gatherings and have never been disappointed. They do takeaway too! Just make sure you check their opening days to aboid devastation ☺️More
