The restaurant isn't at the Main Street. The boss is friendly. The food is good. However the price is a little bit unsatisfied.

So we stayed in the Bayview Hotel opposite Enca and only decided to have lunch there on our last full day. The food was amazing. I would say the best Chicken Vindaloo I have ever had. Great value for money, friendly staff and fantastic food, can't ask for more than that. Thank you Enca Scottish, Glasgow Family.

Decided to eat out here tonight after reading the reviews. We have eaten at several in the area but enjoyed this one the most. Three of us enjoyed traditional curries, chilli chicken, lamb Rogan Josh and vegetarian curry with plain rice pilau and garlic naan bread. Delicious. The other 3 decided on western dishes which were also thoroughly enjoyed. The... More

Close to the road and lots of flies is affecting the experience, but still an excellent choice for dining. We visited the restaurant several times, and the service was... More

Late (for the kids), no one could agree what we wanted. We came here and they had everything, and it was all very good. Surprisingly so to be honest. Not one for date night but if you need a good honest feed, for it.
