The restaurant is a casual eatery that uses homemade ingredients. The restaurant is packed during lunch time on Sunday in its small narrow outlet and there is a waitlist for a table. We are lucky not to have to wait long for a table. However we are showed to a narrow table where both of us have to sit side by side over looking the main dining room. The main dining room kind of becomes a show for us. There is hardly any space for us to put our bags. Its either the table or floor.
Warm mackerel salad ($18)
watercress, apple, pine nuts, pickled onion & herb dressing
Interesting salad. I am not a fan of watercress as I feel that the vegetable has a bitter taste. But in this dish it comes out alright.
Roast chicken ciabatta ($19)
avocado, romaine lettuce, tomato, bacon & aioli
The sandwich is served cold and quite messy to handle.
THE LOKEL baked eggs ($20)
Spicy beef or pork, mushrooms, onion, beans, potato, bacon & 2 eggs
This dish is served hot and is surprisely spicy in taste. Heavily flavoured, although I would prefer it to served with some toasts.
Toasted banana bread ($14)
homemade vanilla yogurt & toasted macadamia nuts
It is one of most well known in the restaurant, yet I feel disappointed in having it. The banana taste is barely there. It is lucky to have the yogurt which makes it moist and creamy to eat.
Overall the food is not bad. Although we order 4 main dishes, we are only allows 1 1-for-1 in the Enterainer mobile app by the staff. The staff replies that we need to be at least 4 persons in order to use 2 of the promotion coupons, which is quite a disappointing experience for me. No matter what I said she still stands still. The place is quite loud and noisy. Another thing which I am annoyed with is the narrow table which we are dining on. There is barely space enough for the food and drinks, with everything been served including the dessert. We kind of feeling the need to rush through our meal in order to make space. The staff should have take note of the limited space and serves the food batch by batch. It is also difficult to get the attention of the staffs.
