Permanently closed as of 1st May


In 2014, Aussie Chef Darren Farr started The Lokal, a casual Australian Restaurant-Bar with an open kitchen concept, providing customers with honest house-made comfort food from day to night — including butter, sauces, pickles & meats all made on site with good produce. Our name is German for local eatery, an influence that be explained by its proximity to Goethe-Institut Singapore and is also reflective of our diverse & worldly approach towards food.

The Lokal serves up healthy and hearty brunches like Smashed Avocado with House-made Ricotta, Roasted Pumpkin Salad, and Steak & Eggs, but also slowly transits into a cozy and versatile space for casual after-work drinks & comfort food by German Head Chef Max Strauch with his Daily Specials menu and rotational German Hausmannskost dishes like Beef Goulash & Pork Cordon Bleu.

Get your day started with coffee by Paradise Coffee Roasters, with alternative milk options like Minor Figures Oat Milk, Happy Happy Soy Boy and Coconut Milk available.
If coffee is not your thing, there’s a wide selection of smoothies, freshly squeezed juices, housemade sodas and teas to choose from.
The booze menu comprises of Pilsner Urquell on tap, classic cocktails & wines that are great for day-to-night and easy drinking to knock back a few.

So, the next time you swing by, pull out a seat at the kitchen counter to see how your food is prepared and have a chat with the chefs to find out more about what you’re eating at The Lokal!

It breaks our heart to share with you the bittersweet news that Chef Darren & Max
have made the difficult decision to close the restaurant permanently as of 1st May.

As a small business, it has been incredibly hard to keep our doors open
through these challenging times.

The Lokal has been an extension of our home, and we are proud of what we have created over the past 7 years. It has really been a great run 🙏🏻 We deeply appreciate all of your support & we are thankful for all wonderful memories we have with our community #thelokalsg
