We tried Gourmet Corner after reviewing Tripadvisor; and glad we did. Well located & atop The Elegance Diamond Hotel this restaurant is seriously worth a visit. Starting with cocktails on the outside deck at sunset & then moving into the compact but beautifully appointed restaurant; is the way to go. The food & service simply can't be faulted. We were...

Great food. Great service. Great view. Must visit if in Hanoi. We were after a good meal for lunch - and we were not disappointed. The staff were lovely and even told us the recipe to their special fish sauce!!

This penthouse restaurant does have a nice view of the Hanoi. But it is the food and the service that was truly excellent. We dined at around 6 pm and we were able to enjoy the sunset. The set meal which consists of a starter (spring rolls and salad), a main dish (we had beef cooked in bamboo), and dessert... More

We ate at The Gourmet Corner Restaurant twice during our stay in Hanoi. The staff, food and atmosphere is absolutely amazing! One of the best restaurants we ate at during our stay. The caesar salad under the vegetarian menu was a bit bland, however this was because it was just a normal caesar salad with the meat taken out (however... More

Out of all the places we ate in Vietnam (Except for the street food in Hanoi), this was definitely the best. Every meal was enjoyable, and the staff were great. The food came out fast and was so incredibly tasty. We had three entrees, two mains, and two desserts plus drinks only came to $40. Such good value for what... More

My friend told me to stay at Hotel Elegance Diamond because the hotel also had an excellent restaurant on the top floor, and I am glad I took his advice. The restaurant served an excellent spread for breakfast buffet as well as dinner. The staff were very friendly and attentive making the experience much more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend dining... More

We were not staying at hotel which by the way looked like a top notch hotel, as confirmed by TA ratings. Made me regret... More

As others have commented the food is not top notch, but it is well above average. We sat outdoors on the roof terrace as the main restaurant was full. It was a great experience seeing the views followed by a wonder full moon rising over Hanoi. Definitely worth a visit for a decent meal.
