“Wonderful food”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful food every time we ate here. The staff could not do enough for us. The indian food was a great price and tasty. We especially loved the butter chicken, naan and basically everything we tried. Located right across the road from our hotel, it was convenient and delicious. Penang truly has wonderful food....

“Long walk was well worth it.”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

I read the reviews on this restaurant before we got to Batu Ferringhi and knew we had to try it. We went out looking for it and what a walk it was as we were staying in the Rasa Sayang which is quite a distance away but so worth it. The food and service was first class, we had the lamb curry which was superb. Definitely would go back .

“Great Food And Highly Recommended”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We found this place by accident, because we earlier had stuffed ourselves with street food and wanted something 'light' so we just drove around and came across Enca Cafe. We noticed they have tons of different type of varities on the menu which can be over-whelming (chefs must be really talented, they even have mexican burritos on the menu, imagine that!) so we ended up ordering mostly Indian dishes, mainly the chicken tikka masala, butter chicken and variety of naans. Really wasn't expecting much out of it to be honest. When the food came, we were SO impressed because it was high on taste and just absolutely lovely!! This is one of those restaurants where you're not impressed with the settings but somehow change your mind after tasting their food. It was that good! The banana milkshake I had was also yummy. And they let you order beers from the store nearby. There were 6 of us and we ended up paying RM125 which is decent. Overall, highly recommended and would return again. Cannot fault the service either coz the guy who took our orders did it with a smile and kept asking if the food was up to par.

“Enca Cafe”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

This cafe is a little gem - it is opposite the Bayview Beach Hotel and I used to have a light lunch there every day - the freshly squeezed juices were yummy!!. I found that there was 'service with a smile' at all times and received very good advice regarding their menu and also had dinner there a few times - keep up the good work lads!!

“Still great food.”
Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

This is the 4th year we have visited Enca during our holiday at the Hard Rock Hotel where we stay for 8 weeks. We go to Enca about twice a week for the great food. We have tried lots of different meals from Minestrone soup to curries to chicken chop with pepper sauce and fish and chips and all are well cooked, very tasty and thoroughly enjoyable. Staff are super, they help my husband who is in a wheelchair to get I and out when we arrive. Service is great from all the guys who work there. We shall miss the food when we go home. The prices are also very good. Thanks guys for making our holiday meals so good. See you all next year
