“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Excellent food but quantity is a concern. The waiting time too is bit high. BUt the wait is worth it.

“Elegant, yet affordable.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

The main reason I head to Lokah ever so often, is because of the spacious and serene setting. The menu is a familiar sight and I know my favourites on it. The South Indian and North Indian Thalis are a safe bet on any day, and ideal for a quick working lunch. The plated meal of Chinese Roast Chicken and Rice is delicious and a real treat when I'm in the mood for a more leisurely meal. However, I'm not a great fan of their desserts and I do think they require a little more imagination to plan their sweetmeat menu.

Thank you!! Always a treat to have you over...In a month's time you will have a whole new menu focusing on cuisines from exotic far-away lands to more-popular food destinations. And guaranteed a revamped dessert list too!!

“Excellent!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

I have been to this place twice and loved it. Can't comment on the world food but the South Indian dishes were excellent. My mouth still waters when I remember the Malabar fry prawns (caution, its a bit spicy but tastes delicious)..their masala roast is also excellent. Its definitely worth visiting this cafe if what one wants is great food. I also thought the food is excellent value for money specially when you compare it even with a normal restaurant in Bangalore. I will def go back there next time I am in Cochin.

Sorry to hear about this. We try our best to source fresh white mushrooms and shiitake from Bangalore. On occasions owing to lack of such produce, we do have to resort to supermarket-grade mushrooms tinned in brine. The brine does have a not-so-favorable smell but it is then again nothing like a rotten egg odour. I would highly appreciate it if you could let us know what mushroom dish it was that you ordered so as to look into this further.
