I'm going to Japan in a week, and I'd like to be able to convey the fact that I am (very) allergic to coriander. Google Translate gave me:
to be pronounced as:
Watashi wa koriandā ni arerugī ga aru
but I'm a bit suspicious of this because the words for coriander and allergy seem to be transliterations of the sound of the words in English, and I find it hard to believe that the Japanese would not have their own word for coriander and allergy.
So, is this the best way to inform restaurant staff that I am allergic to coriander (and not just that I don't like it) ?
