Cai Mam is a small restaurant in the old quarter of Hanoi. They offer delicious traditional Vietnamese food. It's a real experience to eat and drink there. We tried Green Mango Salad, a seafood dish from the traditional claypot and amazing springrolls and ... very tasty rice wine. Service is excellent. I'll be back soon.

Had a quick dinner, really nothing special, which cost $22 for two. The food is not much different than street food stalls at a much higher price.

We received a recommendation to visit this restaurant and after checking out some photo's on here first we popped in. Initially, I was a bit unsure as it was on the groundfloor of a hostel building, but this should not pit anyone off!
We were fortunate to get the last table in what is a nicely decorated place. Our party included 3 adults and 2 fairly picky kids but we ordered lots of foods and were all well fed for about 1M VND. The rice rolls were amazing; both beef and vegetarian but my favourite thing was the lime and mint slushy which was delicious.
The service was very efficient and the waitress incredibly polite and friendly. Very pleased we visited. The drinks were so good we went back the next day : )

I've been eaten in this restaurant for 3 times and have no complaint as the foods are all good, authentic Vietnamese. The staff is caring, polite and on time. They went our of their way to be sure that you feel comfortable and satisfied. They even said sorry for the late of the food ( 7 minutes only). Anyway, the foods come promptly as the waiters and their associates work very well together .The decoration makes you feel that you are eating dinner or lunch in a traditional Vietnamese house, not a restaurant. The stir chicken with lemongrass and chilly is hightlight of our meals here, love it. Simply put, I definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone who want to taste and checkout Vietnamese foods and eating atmosphere .
