Delicious alternate to typical heavy Mexican food found at every other place in Yuba City. More delicately flavored and complex. Restaurant is a little drab and needs a refresh, however staff are friendly and food a nice break from same ok' Mexican.

Just had Sopalpilla with Shrimp. My mouth and tummy was definitely in heaven with this dish. Have to come back before I fly back home.

This was my second time eating at Cilantro's and I was not disappointed. My wife and had the Shrimp Salad and Street Enchiladas, both were excellent. The menu is a refreshing change from the standard "Americanized" food you find at most Mexican restaurants. The restaurant itself is looking a little worse for wear since the last time I was there,... More

What a find! We arrived in Yuba City to see a play, and needed dinner first. Not knowing Yuba City, I'd picked another place online, only to discover on arrival that it was only a breakfast and lunch place, and thus closed. So we wandered, and came across Cilantro's. One glance at the menu, and we knew we had to... More

We have been here a few times now and have never had a bad meal. The food is fresh and very flavorful. They Sangria’s are extremely tasty, get a carafe to sip with your meal. Loved the grilled pineapple salsa, so fresh and the Street Enchiladas are very unique with a lot of flavors.

Came here based on some good reviews. The first bad sign was their website is down. The second is that no one answered the phone at 5pm, and again at 6pm. When we showed up, the door was open but no one was in the restaurant and no one was there to greet us. We left and went elsewhere.

After calling and talking to, I presume the owner, I made reservations for a birthday party of 6. Upon arriving the bar area was very hot, in fact the wall thermometer stated 86 degrees. It was 84 outside. We where greeted ok, and when I told about my party, the server had no clue. She then checked a list and... More

A small, modern restaurant. The owner was very friendly. Great value, wonderful flavor, loved the atmosphere. Some of the best pork I have had in a while.
