Established in 2001, Coriander Leaf is a multi-concept award-winning eatery that encompasses both authentic and innovative Pan-Asian dining experiences. Proudly marking the brand’s 20th year anniversary, the group has opened its second establishment at Singapore Polo Club, one of our country’s most historic sporting and social clubs.

Setting the scene, Coriander Leaf at Singapore Polo Club overlooks the sprawling expanse of the polo field, a luscious view of green hues with a spectacular sight of sunset. The adjoining Polo Bar and outdoor veranda reveal a subtle nod to the colonial heritage of the building donned with chic loungers, monochromatic fabric with elegant touches and details to complement the location’s lush tropical grounds.

Holding true to Coriander Leaf’s culinary philosophy, the restaurant’s menu focuses on home-style cooking, celebrating community with hearty, communal-style sharing plates. Here, the group’s Executive Chef, Iskander Latiff, takes inspiration for his creations from his Peranakan and Malay heritage, allowing the flavours of his dishes to embrace the earthiness of spice, the freshness of Asian herbs and the brightness of local citrus.
