Description: Located on the top floor of Elegance Diamond hotel, the Gourmet Corner restaurant and terrace bar boast the finest view of Hanoi from the 12th floor, overlooking Hoan Kiem Lake, the Red River and the ever-growing skyline of Hanoi. A selected menu of authentic Vietnamese food prepared by our experienced 5-star chef, served by a team of attentive waiting staff will savor your taste. The restaurant provide you full meals during the day. Delivery service is also available throughout our hotel chain. Still, you can drop by for a drink at the terrace bar to see the panoramic view of the lake, the river in the sunset.

“Bamboo Beef: The Best”

This is a unique dish that is tasty and flavorful. The beef is tender and tasty. The Vietnamese drop coffee had a rich and smooth taste. Wonderful ambience, pleasant and polite staff. Highly recommended.

“Good but probably a bit over-rated because of good cost performance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

paid about $100 USD for two. 8 beers, 3 appetisers, 1 steak, 1 salmon main dish (steak was OK, salmon was great) two deserts and and a bunch of coffees.

Except for the steak (t-bone) everything was great (steak was OK, but not great), device was adequate (a bit slow and inattentive) certainly not great.

Bang for buck- pretty good, nice view. Need a reservation.

“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

We booked this after seeing tripadvisor rate it highly. Lovely view over the lake. Just on the edge of the Old Quarter and the French Quarter. Food was good, prices reasonable..$10/$15 US. Service was excellent. A good choice for or last night in Hanoi.

“Wonderful Food, Even Better Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

This is a great restaurant and really deserving of it;s ranking as one on Hanoi's top restaurants. The location is on the 12th Floor of the Hanoi Elegance Diamond hotel, and you'll need to book a table to get in.

Food is superb, beautifully presented tasty and delicious. It is a mixture of international and Vietnamese cuisine. If you choose Vietnamese, you'll be in food heaven.

It's not expensive by our standards but will depend on what food selections and alcohol you order.

Do your self a favour and try this one out, you will not be disappointed.

Highly Recommended.

“The best VIetnamese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

This restaurant serves both Western & Vietnamese food, although we didn't try the Western Food(except dessert) I have to say this was close to the best food we tasted in Vietnam.
The staff were exceptional and the ambience was also very good with views over the old quarter.
