Dine in here at The Lawn located at Shenton Way. Experience its cosy with mouth watering cuisine like Maple Chicken, Fresh Fruit Dory and many more.
Another lunch place for the CBD people where they can enjoy a meal healthily! The Lawn at AXA tower. A surprise cozy corner, cafe alike style. Brightly lit cafe, with carpeted grass on part of the cafe and use of white wooden furniture. Overall, very soothing and relaxing atmosphere. They have dine in and takeaway options.
So basically The Lawn has 2 mains option. Either the salad bowl or olive rice. I’ve decided to go for the Olive rice set. I’ve choosen Char-grilled prawns with garlic and Me so Spicy for my dressing. Very flavorful rice, well cooked succulent crunchy prawns. And i totally like the dressing, spicy with tangy lemon taste. But i feel that the overall dish is too overwhelming, too rich and strong in taste. The salad really helps a lot in cleansing the rich aftertaste. As you can see, they are generous with their portion too! Even the salad consists of a variety of corn, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce. Filling meal indeed!
No matter how filling we are, how can a meal be complete with a dessert? They sell ice cream sandwiches! I’ve got the chocolate hazelnut! Chocolate hazelnut sandwiched between chocolate biscuits! Very chocolatey. If you’re not a chocolate lover, advise to choose from other flavours. If you need something a lil better for lunch, can check out The Lawn!

I just signed up on hungrygowhere so I could write this review. This is the saddest salad I've ever ordered. The alfalfa spouts are flat. The egg feels old. The cumcumbers look like it just came out of plastic wrapper... But what really got me the smell of the parmesan. A whiff of it almost made me vomit. Its the powder parmesan that they used to serve at public canteens.
Whoever is in charge of purchasing ingredients here never ate a salad in their life. Disgusting.
Walking into The Lawn, we instantly felt at home with the woody furniture, the fake grass to simulate an actual lawn and the comfy sofa seats with vibrant coloured pillows and cute vegetable soft toys to make it feel even homelier! We ordered one of the Chef’s picks which is the Hunky Dory, an Olive Rice set with char-grilled Cajun Chicken, and our own customised salad bowls with our own grills!
If you order the basic Salad Bowl ($9.90), you get a Mesclun salad with 5 toppings of your choice, topped with a dressing; also of your choice! The basic Olive Rice set ($8.90) also comes with a side salad topped with a dressing of your choice. If you want some meats to go with your salad or your olive rice, you get to add on grills from $3 - $5. Wallet friendly? Hell yes!
On the whole, all the fruits and the greens that we picked were all fresh, crunchy and juicy! You wouldn’t go wrong with your favourites, whatever they are.
The rice was a little hard and slightly on the dry side, but it is tasty.
Grilled Black Pepper Duck Breast (+ $4.00)
It has a tangy appetising flavour to it, though the meat is slightly tough, it is still very juicy!
Chicken Breast with Fresh Herbs (+ $3.00)
Slightly salted with a tinge of herbs, texture of the chicken breast is tender.
Grilled Teriyaki Chicken (+ $3.00)
Tastes like your regular Teriyaki Chicken, nothing too fancy.
Char-grilled Cajun Chicken ( +$3.00)
The chef was generous on the Cajun seasoning; it has a very strong Cajun flavour. Chicken was once again rather tender.
Char-grilled Prawns with Garlic (+ $4.00)
Prawns used were fresh and it was grilled till it has got a slight brown sear on the sides, taste of the garlic was prominent yet not overpowering.
Char-grilled Mixed Mushrooms (+ $3.00)
Very flavourful and tasty, the mushrooms were grilled to perfection, being soft and juicy. The mushrooms were seasoned with pepper, garlic, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and maybe a little oyster sauce. One of our favourites!
Butter-seared Pacific Dory with Parsley Rub (+ $4.00)
The dory was fresh, tender, juicy with a slightly crispy outer layer. Seasoning was light and not too buttery.
Ben’s Beef Rub (+ $5.00)
The rub consisted of mainly black pepper, although the beef was well done, it was not too tough and still manageable.
Another reason to go to The Lawn, is that they have got their own home-made dresses that are so delectable and unique you can’t find them anywhere else!
Yanxi and I met at Tanjong Pagar MRT and via Exit E, we got to The Lawn very quickly!! It was a fully sheltered short 5 minutes leisurely walk. Even if I don’t work at Shenton Way, I don’t mind meeting friends here after work coz it’s so accessible by MRT!
In a nutshell, The Lawn is a cafe serving salads with a whole array of nutritious grilled meats/ vegetables you can choose from. For friends who cannot go without rice, there’s this Olive Rice set which you can order along with its grills. If you are Paleo like me, get the salad bowl! And they have an astounding 10 types of dressings – all unique and flavourful :) Best thing is, you decide what you want inside your bowl.
The Lawn operates at two locations – Shenton Way and Biopolis.
