Square Meal Review of Enak Enak ?

Nancy Lam’s answer to the perfect restaurant may not fit with everyone else’s, but this is where the telly chef puts her money where her mouth is. She has been cooking here long enough (some 19 years) for the novelty of celebrity chefdom to wear off, & though she does make an appearance when she’s around (which is quite often), customers come for the food rather than the personality. Indeed, Lam’s versions of beef rendang & chicken sambal are pretty good, if somewhat expensive. The same cannot be said of the 1970s-style dining room or the occasionally extraordinarily grumpy service. Enak Enak is set at the unfashionable end of Lavender Hill, hence there’s not much local competition, but even so the place is rarely packed.

    Sybaricious :: Nancy Lam

    Entering at 7.30 on a Tuesday night, the restaurant was eerily empty as in completely empty. Settling in with a beer and some prawn crackers with a home made dip I was treated to a soundtrack of unmistakeably nineties tunes with a smattering of eighties for good measure but nothing that has seen the charts this side of the millennium. The decor is similarly stuck in time with wicker chairs and vases of dried things. That said I see from her Twitter account that the restaurant is being decorated this week. There is a massive portrait of Nancy brightening up the walls and on the opposite side a plethora of photos of the various guests on her tv show and celebrities who have visited over the years, some yellowing a little but nonetheless quite endearing. I know that makes me a complete hypocrite since I criticised it only a few weeks ago about Mango Tree but here it just added to the family feel of the restaurant...
