About The Lokal

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.

More about The Lokal, Singapore

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.

Service crew were friendly. Would appreciate if there was a note that the mashed potato that comes with the half chicken has wasabi in it.

Very friendly and welcoming restaurant. Dinner served is above average although serving size can be a bit larger and alcohol should be priced slightly cheaper.

Great food, ambience and location. It was not too crowded on a weekday night. However, it is a bit pricey if we weren't using the entertainer app.
