Right across the footbridge from Mae Phim's Thai restaurant is Cilantro, located just behind the Starbucks on 1st Ave at the ferry footbridge (walk on the bridge, Cilantro is on the upper level)
Lunch and dinner specials and pricing schedule. Lunch is 1/2 the price (or cheaper) than dinner prices, but you get the same amount of food. If you want it for dinner, just order it earlier in the day and heat it up later.
Even better, for dinner, get one of their dinner sampler platters. It's the same as an individual entree but you get SO much more food---enough for leftovers, and for the same price.
I'm in love with their green curry. I dream about it. I am obsessed with it. Heaven, to me, is a neverending supply of Cilantro Green Curry.
I'm not a tofu fan, but their fried tofu (in place of other meat) has a super texture and flavor. The chicken is white meat, and the beef is high quality.
The food is more expensive than at Mae Phim, but the quality is also alot better. They have a huge seating area, but I've only gotten take-away, so I don't know how the service is.
The two people I always see at the register are the same man and woman---I suppose the owners? At any rate, they're pleasant to deal with and are happy to take phone-in orders. Grab a menu while you're there.
They are not open on Sundays.
Lunchtime during the weekdays can be hectic, as Cilantro is a favourite of the local office crowds, and understandably so.
Because this is in Downtown Seattle, there is no parking. Either be prepared to pay $6 to park in one of the pay lots, or drive around for hours looking for a parking space.
