Make it a compound sentence:

Enticingly served, it comes in four bowls.

I had this today in my exam and I wrote It comes enticingly served in four bowls. Is this correct? If not, what is the correct version?

How's your solution 'compound'? – Kris Feb 21 '12 at 9:22
I'm not sure. That's the reason I asked the question here. – kapeels Feb 21 '12 at 9:24

To make it into a compound sentence, write

It is enticingly served, and it comes in four bowls.

This looks correct. Darn I lost one mark. – kapeels Feb 21 '12 at 9:28
Something else more important than marks: learning. Whether you learn it before the exam, and get credit for it, or after the exam, where you got it wrong, the important thing is that you ultimately learn.
