Description: 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

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Visiting from Australia, my daughter was recommended to try Nancy Lam's Indonesian Restaurant, the food was amazing. We had a shared entree the peanut sauce was amazing. Mains we ordered the Beef Rendang highly recommended, Gado Gado, Nasi Goreng again just stunning. It was all fantastic and perfect spice. Nancy came over a few times to ask us if we were enjoying ourselves. Very friendly, happy atmosphere. Whenever we return to London Nancy Lam will definitely be on our list. Thank you Nancy.

“Wonderful food and a fun place to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

What a lovely place to go and eat. Nancy tells us how she takes pride in her food and refuses to use cheap meats etc having said that she manages to keep fair prices. Food portions are perfect and I would recomend to anyone. You should go for the great food and the hillarious madness of Nancy who will put a smile on your face with her quick wit! GOGOGO!!!!!!!!

“Delicious food and great service -”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Whether you just want to have a quiet meal or go celebrate, this hidden gem is the place to go! Nancy’s cooking acumen, combined with the freshest ingredients make for the most delicious food. None of the pre-made bottled sauces here that you get in C’town - her dishes are FAB-U-LOUS with a depth of flavour you can only get when it is home-made by an expert. I have been many times over the years and yes Nancy is a celebrity chef who actually cooks in her own restaurant and warmly welcomes diners with no airs and graces. Food is cooked to order and dietary requirements are happily accommodated rather than tolerated. 5 Stars – Brilliant!

“Another great meal at Nancy Lam's Enak Enak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

My friend and I went to have dinner at Enak, Enak. We were greeted warmly. We shared a platter starter. Our diet needs were taken care of and the shared platter was changed to have it without prawns and substituted with beef Satay instead. We had three fantastic main dish of pork, chicken and pak choi.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

I took my boyfriend to Nancy Lam (and family's) Enak Enak last night for his birthday. We'd both had tough days at work and were in bad moods before we arrived. We opened the door and were greeted by the lovely Nancy. Nancy's warmth and unique charm is an excellent stress buster - we were all smiles for the rest of the evening. The food is out of this world - especially the beef rendang and Nancy's home made berry sorbet. Enak Enak is my new favourite restaurant and we will most certainly be coming back. A heart warming evening with brilliant service and sensational food - a hidden treasure.
