Our Founder

Samia Ahad’s culinary journey began in 1991, when she traded in her business suit for kitchen whites and chef’s knives. She has since become one of the pioneers of contemporary Asian cuisine in Singapore.

Samia’s bold yet familiar and comforting food reflects her philosophy of traditionality, simplicity and approachability. Her dedication to stay ahead of the curve and enhance her diners’ experiences has spearheaded Coriander Leaf’s transformation for over 20 years. Her passion for her craft is captured and articulated in her cookbook “Simply Samia”.

Food Philosophy

Coriander Leaf’s food philosophy is based on 3 R’s: Reimagine, Reinterpret, and Represent.

Through their vast experiences and knowledge, Chef Samia’s and Chef Iskander’s aim is to bring the Asian continent together on a plate along distinct flavour verticals: fresh, familiar, spicy, umami and sweet.

Our modern take on classic, authentic Asian cuisine uses both inspired and traditional techniques to see regional flavours re-created as sharing plates.
