Went to Cai mam this evening seeking lovely vegetarian food and certainly were not disappointed! The staff were lovely and there was an extensive vego and non Vego menu. The food was lovely and flavoursome, definitely recommend the banana curry for those who are curious, and the salads are deliciously flavoursome! Would definitely go back!!

My friend and I arrived in Hanoi and wanted a vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant so after a search on Google we found this place. We followed the directions and voila we found this restaurant. We were taken to a table and met by a young waiter who suggested we share a meal as this is what is tra football in Vietnam. The food came very quickly and was delicious. There was music playing in the background and the atmosphere was relaxing. We are even going back tomorrow evening as we enjoyed it so much. The waiter helped me and my friend plan our trip around Vietnam as well and overall we 100% recommend this restaurant. Thank you for looking after us so well.

Dear Amyz,

I am Dzung Vu, an owner of Cai Mam restaurant. Today, I am writing to say thank you for your review about us on tripadvisor.
Cai Mam restaurant one month ago was move to new place. The old address is 56 Hang Trong street and the new place is 29 Hang Trong street. We had to move the restaurant bacause the owner of land who sold the land so Cai Mam restaurant now is at #29 Hang Trong not at #56 Hang Trong anymore.
You are the first person who gave review about us when the restaurant is in new place. I am working with team of Traipadvisor in order to change address of restaurant into #29 instead of #56.
Thank you and all staffs are looking foward to seeing you coming back.

The menu contains a very large number of dishes not all of which are actually available because of ingredients being more or less in season. The food is mainly Vietnamese staples, well prepared with a lovely family feel. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The wine list is also good and both food and drink is reasonably priced. The restaurant has a nice quirky feel to it: through a narrow alley, up the stairs, in a dimly lit room on the rooftop. We went 3 times and were very happy on each visit.

We found this little tucked away gem of a place the night before we left.

You walk down one of the alleys and go up a flight of stairs to discover this really lovely little place. It's very quiet and the food is fresh and good.

The service is excellent and friendly. Don't be put off by the entrance, it's a nice place to go.

They have fans to cool you, as they don't use air condition. It's a place with real character and you get to see what life is like down one of those many alleys they have. You would not know the streets are so busy when you sit in this restaurant.

We found this restaurant purely by accident. We were walking along and saw the menu and a sign. The restaurant is down a narrow alley and up a spiral staircase emerging on a rooftop. The food was delicious and we even went with the waiters black sticky rice and yogurt recommendation for dessert which was delicious. It was nice to relax and have a few beers and a nice Vietnamese meal on our last night in Hanoi. Meal for two and a few drinks and dessert came to 395000 dong which I thought reasonable.

If you found the review helpful please let me know any feedback is appreciated.
