To me cilantro taste to like dirty copper. Why add this leaf to such great food? Do people pretend to like it because they want to seem cool? It overtakes any flavor the food it pairs with has.

Please stop adding cilantro to already great dishes. Leave it where it belongs, as greenery on the horizon.

Cilantro indeed tastes like SOAP to me. I do have a threshold amount though---usually at Chipotle, I can handle the cilantro-lime rice in my burrito, but if there is a large piece of cilantro, I can taste it, and it ruins my burrito.

Okay. I hate it because it's in everything my family likes that I hate. I don't need no fancy curries or shrimp, I just sometimes want some chicken noodle soup.

I always liked Mexican, East Indian, Middle Eastern, Thai, etc... until cilantro was added. The past 20 years, more of my favorite foods have been ruined by that nasty herb. A good payback would be to add liver & onions to the foods the cilantro lovers like. Cilantro should be an option not a requirement for foods. I've had good salsa and guacamole, for example, without the vile herb added.

The Problem with Cilantro is that people USE TOO MUCH! It's a wonderful herb; but you only need a hint, to make the dish interesting, like tarragon it MUST be used with discretion. Too much of these two herbs, and you can throw the dish away!

Do you cilantro-leaf haters also dislike the coriander seeds when they are ground up as a spice? Does the spice also taste soapy?

My problem is that when I eat cilantro, my throat seizes up and I cannot breathe for a minute or two, then finally I can breath again. Let me tell you this is scary. Now when I am in a Mexican restaurant I tell them absolutely no cilantro. So far, they have cooperated very well.

I'm one of those people who cannot stand the taste of cilantro. Unfortunately, one of my favorite restaurants is Chipotle. Their rice consists of tine specks of the demon plant, and their corn has giant chunks of it. Throughout the delicious mixture of guacamole, sofritas, beans, and lettuce, I sometimes have to gag down chunks of the green substance.

Keep that shit outta my salsa!

Funny - I used to hate it when I was a child, but somewhere in my late teens I started loving it, and still do. I do hate the smell of stinkbugs - and at the same time, I definitely see the resemblance to cilantro. Go figure.

I'm almost 60 and discovered cilantro 10-12 years ago when
I noticed my salsa tasted like I was chewing aluminum.
Cilantro tastes like someone mixed laundry detergent and pine sap and smells like an old kitchen sponge in your food.

Absolutely the worst type of herb to flavour your food with. Even when it's served as decoration the smell alone can ruin your whole food. Simply horrible.

Cilantro is NOT a useless herb.
http://www.naturalnews.com/038670_heavy_metals_chelation_foods.html
Cilantro, otherwise known as coriander, is an excellent food for removing heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum and lead from the body. This herb is believed to cross the blood-brain barrier and remove heavy metals from the brain. Taking 400 mg of cilantro a day can pretty much clean heavy metals out of the body in just two weeks, according to Robert C. Atkins MD.

I haven't posted here in a long time, and logged in because I just discovered an awful product--CILANTRO CONDITIONER!!! NOOOOOO!!!

Not sure if this will replace or add to what I posted when I first joined, but in case it does replace it: My first encounter with cilantro was in San Diego in the early 80's. I took the salad back to the buffet counter because I thought there was something rotten in it--turned out it was the cilantro. Oh, the horror...

Note to members: Although I am not a Chipotle fan by any means, the food is edible IF YOU ASK FOR YOUR RICE WITHOUT CILANTRO. They will gladly get some non-cilantro rice for you if you just ask (nicely).

I always hear people say that cilantro tastes like soap but I think that's weird. To ME, it smells like BODY ODOR (the nasty kind, and tastes like THE SMELL OF BODY ODOR. It's gross, I hate it, and I tell everyone I know who likes it how much it smells like BO. So far, I've been able to ruin at least one friend's enjoyment of cilantro. MuaHahAHAhahAhaHa Go, IHC!!!

I used to work at a grocery store and people would buy cilantro all the time. The leaves would fall off and get caught in the belt and stick to my hands.

It seems to me that people who like Cilantro have a stunted perception of it because they say it has a mild taste. To me it is so strong that a little bit of it in a dish completely overwhelms all other flavors. To say it is nauseating is not just an expression of distaste - it literally makes some of us sick. A little bit of it ruins perfectly good salsa. It is so overused that I have to believe that other people simply cannot perceive it the way we do. And they act as if we are the strange ones.

I loved eating tomatoes i any shape or form. Got a plateful of gazpacho, and developed a fetid, nauseating taste in my mouth that didn't go away with vomitting or rinsing. Had no idea what it was until the cook told me about cilantro used a garnish. Ugh. Never again. Do believe we should have labeling like for salt, nutrates and nitrites, and calories.

Im not gonna lie, normally I dont mind a bit of coriander but one day just making some pasta with pesto I was almost ill. Turns out my mother bought coriander pesto instead of normal basil pesto. Avoid it like the plague - its horrible.

I personally do not have a story about Cilantro (if I've ever tried it, I honestly can't remember), but I thought you should know that this website made it into Uncle John's Funniest Ever Bathroom Reader in 2013. I do not mean this in the context that this website is a joke, but that some people find it funny that it exists. I am going to continue staying away from cilantro, as I haven't had any to begin with, simply because it seems 4,435 other people would encourage me to. Keep on hating the plant!
