This was a first for us and we were accompanied by two of Nancy's greatest devotees. "You'll love it!" was the message before we went and by George was it great! The restaurant is simply laid -out and we loved the unpretentious ambience. Nancy bowled...More

I had a nice dinner here when on a work trip. It was very quiet for a Thursday night but that didn't bother me. Very tasty food though the vegetables were over cooked. Reasonable prices and friendly service

I have frequented this establishment on multiple occasions, and the food has never disappointed. The menu consist of a few well cooked dishes and the staff are polite and efficient. The mixed satay starter is too die for, and the curries are lush. If you...More

First eat here on opening night 30 years ago. Then had children and moved to Kent. Then daughter moved to clapham and we rediscovered Nancy Lam. Still great food! Highly recommend the experience and if you are lucky say hello to Nancy!

My other half and I had come across Nancy Lam through her YouTube videos and were rather excited at the opportunity to actually visit her restaurant. Of course, we happened to choose a night she wasn't in, but that didn't tarnish an incredible evening. We...More

You may recognise celebrity chef Nancy Lam from her Channel 5 show. What better way to try her unique Indonesian and Far Eastern cooking than in her own family-run restaurant. At Enak Enak (Indonesian for "yummy yummy") she serves honest, healthy meals in a smart, homely setting. Favourites include her famous satay, barbecued prawns and home-made sorbet. Everything is cooked fresh and its best to come with good company and a mind to relax. This isn't the place for a quick bite. The eccentric star occasionally comes out of the kitchen to chat with excited diners, the majority of whom are locals. Marco Pierre White regularly brings his family here. The lovely staff have a talent for remembering your name and helping you enjoy yourself
