Why Nang Tam Vegetarian Restaurant is special ?
Nang Tam restaurant is the oldest vegan restaurant in Hanoi (established in 1995). The decent atmosphere here is created by yellow and green colors, main design of the house. Waiters and waitresses are so elegant in yellow/brown uniforms. Nang Tam has an eclectic menu, and one of the most delicious foods here, which you should not miss, is “Fried young tofu” with tofu covered by flour and deep fried. The skin is crispy and tofu is smooth/soft, bringing an unforgettable experience for guests. Moreover, the prices here are reasonable, just from 30,000 VND for a meal. Come to Nang Tam, and you won’t be disappointed.

Tips for you
Yes, it's a bit hard to find, but just follow the alley, first left, then right, and you will be there. I'm not a vegetarian, but i've eaten here many times since 1999. As others have noted, they try to make their veggie offerings look like their namesakes, so a fish dish comes out looking something like fish, and sauteed "beef" looks a bit like beef saute. This has been off-putting for some vegetarians, and it has spooked some who haven't believed that there is no meat here, but I rather like it. I am particularly fond of the "snowballs" and the "sausage," but the fried tofu in tomato sauce is good, as are the mushrooms. In fact, most of the menu is good, but I'm not a fan of the snails. Servings tend to be a bit small, but you can order a bunch of items because prices are very reasonable. They serve both beer and wine. Since the place is small, service tends to be good and speedy. Please don't hesitate to summon your waitperson, though, because, as in most places in VN, servers do not typically attend to you, but rather respond to your requests for service. The menu has English descriptions, but the wait staff don't have much. I have brought groups of 5-6 people, but more could be accommodated in the auxilliary dining room that is across the alley. In '15, I've eaten 4 dinners and only 1 lunch and found the quality consistently good each time. It does get crowded at both noon and evening.
