The Lokal is still able to take in reservations for 5.30pm and 7.30pm but it might be sharing tables. Please contact the restaurant directly if you have any questions.
Dear diners, for same-day reservations after 5:30pm please call the restaurant directly.
Around Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar, on Neil Road, locals have been heading to, um… The Lokal and finding themselves presented with an excellent cafe-bistro-restaurant that offers flavours from around the world. Great coffees, cakes and pastries are the centre of the daytime offerings here, but as the evening draws in, these give way to heartier mains as well as a good selection of beers and wines. Little surprise then that The Lokal is pulling guests from across the city to its dining room.
See below for The Lokal's special menus!
Tanjong Pagar residents know that The Lokal is part cafe, part proper, grown up restaurant. In the daytime guests are invited to get a swift pick-me up in the shape of a coffee, or stay a while for tea and cake. But dinner is a different matter altogether. In the evenings, this Neil Road eatery transforms itself into a restaurant, with a daily changing menu to boot. Singapore’s discerning foodie bunch welcome the excellent selection of locally-sourced dishes, and tourists are grateful for the kitchen’s pluralistic approach to food.
If you find yourself in Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar at a loose end, we recommend you pay a visit to The Lokal, not only are you guaranteed an excellent cup of coffee, the team pride themselves on offering a warm welcome to guests from near and afar. But if you want to see what the team at Neil Road’s The Lokal are really capable of, the only way to do it is to visit for dinner. The team delight in sourcing local ingredients and giving them an international spin, and are pulling hordes of diners from across Singapore to prove it.
Good food and good sized portions! Only downside was that at 9.30pm, clean up started (switching lights on and off etc) and felt a bit rushed and felt like we had to leave asap. Regardless, we will return but will reserve earlier in the evening.
Service was impeccable. Thank you for your attentiveness and ensuring our experience a comfortable one. The food was however forgettable. The fish and chip batter was thick and bland, only with covering the entire bite with the sauce it tasted better. The portion for the beef was too small and mushy. A neighborhood eatery might have offered a more flavorful dish for a better price. We believe there's much room for improvement.
I have always liked the Lokal, for the ambience and the generally great food. A downer was that they discontinued their draft beers - I really liked the Asahi Dark they used to have on tap.
good location for famaily gathering. food ok. but the price is a bit high. The place quite small and limited seating. Can be improved by providing more option for the food selection as there is only 3 type to choose from.
Great food and service! Reservation is necessary as the restaurant is quite crowded on weekends. Slightly pricier as compared to other cafes but the quality of the food is totally worth it. Highly recommended.
The Sticky Date pudding was amazing! I want to go and try the brunch menu next! I only tried the Dinner menu.. Service can be improved, but I guess the dessert really help to uplift the experience.
The food is nice & definitely worth the price! Ambience is good n not too noisy like Populus which at the other end of the street. And reservation at Quandoo help us to beat the queue, thankew!
The food and dessert were good and delicious and the server was friendly. Nice environment though the space a bit small and need to go once finish dinner and not hang around. Overall a pleasant experience
Food quality is pretty good ! Made with heart and soul and fresh ingredients instead on relying on premixes. Would love to see chef churn out more variety .....maybe do a monthly or weekly specials.
Booking through quandoo was really convenient! Easily made my reservation through online form and whole experience was smooth and quick! Service at the restaurant was great too! Recommended :D
