Excellent meals at very fair cost. The buttered chicken was first class as was the lamb korma. An interesting and varied menu to choose from. Will certainly return.

This restaurant is directly opposite the Bayview Beach Resort. They offer a pretty comprehensive menu including Italian & western dishes but in my opinion they make excellent curries. The guys who run this establishment are cheery chappies who seem to enjoy the banter with their customers & they remember who you are & what you drink. This is a no... More

My partner & I are staying across the road from Enca Cafe n' Restaurant at the Bayview Beach Resort. We have eaten three meals here at Enca now and the food is lovely. Last night we chose Indian. Our curries, raita, naan bread and dahl were fantastic so we went back again for dinner tonight. Delicious !! The staff are... More

Simple cafe style place opposite the Bayview Hotel (next to Hard Rock Hotel). Menu is very extensive with Indian, Italian, Western, Malaysian options. We had Indian and it was decent - not the best we have had but not bad either, and prices are reasonable too. If you want your dish spicy then emphasize that, as even their spiciest dish... More

We stumbled across this place by chance, curry was so delicious. We ordered butter chicken and kashmir curry. Naan was fresh. They made an effort with the service. Wish we could eat here again.

Enca restaurant opposite of Bayview Beach Resort offers a wide range of good quality food for a low price. It is not spectacular, just good. The price / performance ratio is just great 9as for most of the 'normal' local restaurants where you are not being pulled in by employees claiming how good they are. The Enca restaurant opposite of... More

A terrific value. Large portions+low prices. Many choices available. I had the Tikka Chicken, that came with veggies and a lovely mint sauce=RM 12. I added Naan bread that included Dal Tadka (delicious), a lentil dipping sauce=RM 2.

Doesn't look much when you find it - basically a few tables in the reception of a hotel and on the pavement/road but the food is great. Ate hear twice and the curries are excellent and the owner is very friendly and welcoming - probably the best food we had in Batu Ferringhi. There is a large menu of western... More

I don't know how this restaurant got a certificate of excellence. Four of us had dinner. The spaghetti and chicken chop were just average. The beef satay was greasy and fatty - not quality meat. The naan and cashew chicken were very good, the mixed seafood platter also. You can find much better places to eat.
