Welcome to MAM, new Vietnamese Barbecue Restaurant in Notting Hill. MAM is the new restaurant from the team behind cult East London restaurant Salvation in Noodles. Inspired by the barbecue street food stalls found all over Vietnam it brings light, fresh flavours and specially curated cocktails to leafy All Saints Road.
Pronounced ‘mum’ and referring to the art of fermentation, the menu focuses on skewered meat cooked on a robata grill. The skewers predominantly feature cuts of chicken, but the kitchen also showcases weekly specials such as rare-breed beef and seafood. Served sharing style with rice noodle parcels, chopped veg, colourful pickles, an abundance of fresh Vietnamese herbs, lettuce leaves and rice paper wrappers, diners are encouraged to choose their own way of eating them.
The light, airy 40-cover restaurant, divided between a bar area at the front and dining room conservatory at the back, also offers a refined cocktail menu.

I would definitely recommend! Pretty little restaurant in a lovely spot in Notting Hill. Food was also delicious. I did struggle to get through on the phone about the timing of my reservation beforehand, this may be something that needs to be checked out? Other than that, perfect. Thanks for a great lunch.

Not your standard Vietnamese restaurant - the food is innovative, well prepared, with lots of fresh ingredients. Lovely staff and a congenial, attractive setting. When in town, we go weekly. I have recommended it to friends.

The banh hoi was absolutely outstanding!! We paired with 2 kinds of beef and the pork shoulder, mmmm too good.

Only disappointed with the pho bo, too much lemongrass, over powering the whole bowl.

MAM lived up to and exceeded our expectations all the dishes tried were not overly complex but all were nicely presented and tasted delicious. The cracker was bland on its own but combined with the Tamarind sauce changed it beyond recognition, the spring rolls and pancake full of flavour and the BBQ skewers rounded things off and the meal offered excellent value

What was good: the food is tasty and the restaurant is well laid out. The atmosphere is good and even when it is busy it doesn’t get too loud to hear each other.
What is bad: the menu is a little confusing and you don’t really get much help trying to understand it. The service is so slow, it’s wasn’t very busy and yet everything took an age and we had to ask many times for someone to take our order or for things we had ordered to be brought.
For 2 people it is probably a good place to go, the food is tasty when you work out how to order some. For anything more than 2 it’s not great.

The food was good but a little more expensive than what I felt it was worth. The table had trees in the middle of the table that disrupted our conversation and made it very awkward. The service was poor and they forgot one of the orders. And being near the door was annoying with people coming in and leaving the door open letting a cold draft in. This meant we had to constantly get up and close it. I would go again but insist on a different table.

They had run out of the skewers barely an hour into service and the staff working seemed pretty miserable, also the restaurant was cold and didn’t feel inviting. Food was very good though.

Restaurant was great, the food was delicious and took us straight back to our trip to Vietnam. The beef skewers were incredible. Perfect for a Friday night dinner with friends, family or date night. Only criticism, they don't have a coat hook - it was a freezing cold day so everyone had bulky coats on which made it difficult. Other than that amazing.

The beef in betal leaves came almost burned, which is not supposed to be like this if it were cooked properly. The pork shoulder was very strongly flavoured and overcooked (also burned, see photo), the texture became tough and the moisture all gone. Also, the "King" prawns were in every sense of the word a cheat as the small sizes suggest these are "Tiger" prawns or anything but Kings; they were well prepared though. Two other starter dishes (chicken wings and wontons) we had were good and proper, but all in all the food came just overly flavoured which is not quite what I've extensively experienced as regards authentic Vietnamese cuisines. There's room for improvement.

very poor service when we returned a salad twice for tasting distinctly off.. real shame as everything else was great - and we prefaced our comments with that - was with a highly trained professional celeb chef - just didn't matter- really bad attitude from 2 servers. I like this neighbourhood joint but am unsure if i will return after this experience
