The Lawn, Grill & Salad Cafe @ Biopolis


Meat your greens at The Lawn. The Lawn is a Grill & Salad Cafe launched in November 2011 at Biopolis, just a 5 minutes walk from Buona Vista MRT station.


I got to know The Lawn because of Food Revolution Day Singapore. You can read about it here.


Ordering at The Lawn is very simple. Go to the ORDER station and follow the 3 simple steps. Don't worry the friendly staff will guide you too. It is as simple as ABC.

1) Choose your servicing SIZE. (Pot or Bowl).
2) Choose your GRILL.(Classic or Premium)
3) Choose your Greens, Toppings and Dressings. (Classic or Premium)

For premium items, there will be additional charge of $1/$2.


Besides the indoor dining area, The Lawn has an alfresco area too. I preferred the alfresco area as I can enjoy the beauty of the surrounding greenery.

Char-grilled Prawns Salad, Bowl Servicing 4/5

I like the concept at The Lawn because eating salad is never boring again. I can have my choice of grills that satisfied the carnivore in me. The whole serving is as good as a full meal that guaranteed to leave you filling full and satisfied.

If you choose the Bowl servicing ($8.90+), it comes with a Grill and 4 toppings. For the grill, I went for the Char-grilled Prawns. Toppings wise I had pasta, broccoli, hard boiled egg and I couldn't remember the fourth item, probably it was tomato or baby potato. Last but not least I went for the red island dressing. I enjoyed the fresh and crunchy prawns which were not over cooked and had a tad of smokey flavour. The creammy and vibrant homemade Red Island dressing married the the whole dish together.

The Lawn has also just introduced a couple of new items in the menu. Now they have Duck and Pacific Dory! I got to sample their new Wasahonie dressing too! It had the Wasabi kick which is not too powering , smoothen with honey and mayo.

Grilled Salsa Duck & Buttered Seared Pacific Dory Salad, Pot Serving 4.2/5

I have to warn you, the Pot serving ($10.90+) is huge! I tried having it alone once and I was so bloated after that. It comes with choice of 2 grills and 6 toppings. Anyway, I got to try the new menu and ordered the Grilled Salsa Duck and Buttered Seared Pacific Dory. I was quite surprised how flavourful and tender the duck meat was. It definitely won me over. The buttered seared pacific dory was as good too. The buttery flavour over the soft and moist fish with a hint of herby parsley flavour was simply heavenly.

Is the grill and salad really that good? Well, it definitely has a place in my heart and I actually went back for the third time within a month.
