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 up and was highly amusing and open! She broadcast her views freely and kept deferring... More

Came here for dinner with a friend on a whim on a Saturday night.....so pleased we did! I had been meaning to try the place out for ages! What can I say? The food was absolutely delicious! We had the mixed satay and battered vegetables for starter - both of which were accompanied with Nancy's fantastic homemade peanut sauce. For... 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

Went recently with a friend to catch up over dinner. We found the restaurant comfortable, uncrowded, and pleasant. The waitress was polite and helpful. The menu simple yet creative enough to want to read the descriptions. Prices were very reasonable. The wine list also offered good value with just enough selection to compliment any dish. We chose Chicken and Beef... More

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 can get a night when Nancy is at the restaurant you'll have even more fun.

Enjoyed a delicious meal here. The food was great - enough spice to add heat without overpowering the other flavours. Loved the coconut rice! And such friendly service. They made us feel really welcome and didn't rush us, even though it was quiet and I'm sure they would have liked to have gone home. Highly recommend.

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 were welcomed warmly and given the menus and decided to share everything to be able... More

My wife and I had a wonderful meal there. The service was excellent. The wait staff was very good. The restaurant was quiet. It was more expensive than we expected, but the meal was worth it.

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
