Dined here twice on our 24-hour visit, if that tells you anything! Stumbled across it by chance with our group of 7 friends and the food was so good for dinner we had to go back for lunch the next day. The man who served us (pretty sure he is also the owner) was so friendly and nice. One of... More

We are staying across the road from this place and took a gamble once we had checked in to the hotel. The guys were friendly and attentive. I had butter chicken and it was great. We've been about 4 more times and will continue to go through the menu up until we leave. The staff all look like they enjoy... More

we visited this restaurant 3 times on our recent visit to Penang because the food was so good, each time we had an Indian meal which was perfect, I would strongly recommend a visit here.

We visited this restaurant several times and each time tried something different - indian, malay, pizza, pasta, western. All of them were really tasty and well cooked. Friendly staff, good service and very good value for money. No complaints at all. We'd recommend.

This little cafe located across from Bayview Beach Resort in Batu Ferrignhi is - what I like to call - one of Penang's many hidden secrets. This cafe provides the best of the best. Ranging from Indian and Malaysian cuisine to western cuisine, they have a huge range of food! Funnily enough their western menu is to die for and... More

Stayed at the Bayview Beach Hotel in Batu Ferringhi across the street. Read the reviews for this restaurant and decided to check it out for dinner. I gauge a restaurant on how busy it is with the locals and was a little leery at first. There were very few people in the restaurant and the restaurant next door was packed.... More

Eating the last meal of our holiday at Enca Cafe. The variety of dishes is amazing and the quality is very high. Have had curries, local food and pizza. Never had a bad one. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Best iced lemon tea in Penang. Would recommend to all including families.
