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.

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 : )

We had several great meals here and it became a favourite with the kids during our stay.Blaksmit,
Great food, friendly staff and interesting environment. You will wonder where you are headed as you make your way up the stairs to this hidden delight!
After wandering the streets for a little while we came across Cai Mam, the staff that greeted us at the door were friendly and very welcoming.
We enjoyed a beautiful meal including beef salad, traditional spring rolls which you made yourself, potato with coriander and garlic (this was amazing!) all while being looked after by the kind staff. There is lots to choose from.
It was about $12US each for a starter and main. It was a gorgeous little place and for a yummy meal and delightful service I would certainly recommend.Dishy44, from Melbourne
