Vietnamese
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.

The service is a little slow and one of my starters never made it to the table, but the food is outstanding and worth the wait.

Food was really good. Everything else was terrible. Took an hour for our starters to arrive, then another 40 minutes for our main course. It was truly amateur hour at MAM, the staff seemed erratic as be clueless.

Food was good but no variety of garnish. All plates had the same. Pancakes were good but did not understand the skewers. Quite expensive for what you got. Noodle soup a bit tasteless. Liked the atmosphere and service but the volume of the music much too high + wrong kind of music I think. Asian of some kind would have been more suitable. Could hardly hear what the waiter said because of the noice.

Really nice local restaurant with service from people who seem to care about their work and the place. Short and quite simple menu but all done well. There should have been a few photos but it all looked so good we had started eating before we thought about pictures!

Having had the most marvellous Pho in Vietnam and in Berlin, this was bland and disappointing by comparison, but the chicken spring rolls were excellent. I might return to try some of the other dishes but sadly, would not have Pho here again, which is a shame as it was one of my very favourite dishes

Not your typical Vietnamese restaurant. A beautiful blend of classic and fusion menu items. There was not loads to choose from, but the menu has just the right amount of items to make a superb evening. Recommend a try.

The food was delicious and exactly what I was looking for - fresh and tasty. The staff were a little quiet and not overly friendly, but they definitely were not rude in any way. I would thoroughly recommend and will be going back myself :-)

Except for the waiter forgetting our drinks order, (which can happen everywhere), and the sticky floors (please, change the water of your bucket more often !!) the food was excellent. Very fresh, very tasty. Excellent dumplings, which sauce was to die for.

All was good other than the bill was wrong with a dish added that never came, so that was annoying but it was a nice evening. Quite pricey for a local eatery with simple dishes but we had a good evening overall.

Tried MAM for the first time this weekend.. we booked a table and were seated just a bit early when we arrived. The skewer platter was delicious, spicy dumplings and the rice bowl also fantastic. We also had rare beef pho... it was really good quality, generous meat portion and nice flavor though it needed more salt. Also, no mint or basil served with it... next time, will ask for herbs and chili’s and think it will be better. Overall, nice service, good modern vibe, excellent food—the spicy pepper margarita was fantastic! Love that this is in our neighborhood—we’ll be eating here often.

Superb, fresh, zingy Vietnamese in the heart of Notting Hill. As someone who has travelled to Vietnam on a regular basis, it brought me right back there. We'll be back!

Really nice restaurant for lunch, food is good and a reasonable price too. Service was friendly - my only point is that I was told I couldn't have a cocktail because there was no bartender, but could see from my seat a guy behind the bar making a cocktail about 5 mins later...

The food was tasty and portions were generous. Cocktails were great too. Only complaint we have was with the Banh Hoi platter. The “steamed rice vermicelli sheets” are literally sheets of noodles that you’re somehow supposed to use to create a wrap with the other ingredients. They failed miserably, as we expected. It would be far better to use an actual wrap for that dish (something like the rice paper sheets used for summer rolls perhaps).

Nice decor and trendy layout the price is fair. My only gripe was the seating for two; the seats are perched up high and against the wall. I felt more like an ornament on a shelf rather that a patron having dinner.
The staff are warm, friendly and very accommodating.

If you have a "sensitive" seafood allergy they did state that it's possible that the increments may have "touched" but you won't find any fish in your meat dish; you'll have to decide if this is OK for you.

I can recommend the "Fish Sauce Wings", very crispy and succulent.

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.
