“Worth a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

The view of Hanoi City wasn't spectacular but it was nevertheless a nice spot for dinner with friends. Not many spaces so it is advisable to make a booking before you arrive. Food was good and quite reasonable. Definitely a nice place to spend dinner time with friends and have a good chat

“Great food, very helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We arrived in hanoi at 4pm from halong bay and had time to kill until a train at 10pm. We saw the good reviews of this restaurant on tripadvisor so thought we'd give it a go. The staff could not have been more helpful. We turned up with suitcases - not a problem, they put them in their bag storage. Restaurant on the 12th floor, staff couldn't have been more helpful. View ok, i wouldnt say it was spectacular but the hanoi skyline is not that amazing. Food excellent. Probably expensive for Vietnamese prices but reasonable compared to UK standards. Left our luggage with them and went for a wander for a few hours, came back and they organised a taxi to the station. Given this experience I would definitely think about staying with them if I was returning to Hanoi.

“It's good but not amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Nice view, especially at sunset, food is pretty good, and the staff are friendly and genial. But there are a few places like this in Hanoi and I can't think if of anything that sets this place apart from them.

“Great views and lovely staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Great Vietnamese restaurant. Located on the 12th floor of The Elegance Diamond Hotel. Great menu at great prices. USD 5-10 dishes. You get the Vietnamese fine dining and great prices, and food was great too. Make sure you go early and have a drink on their balcony overlooking Hanoi, great refreshing place with the breeze cooling you down.

Place was so good we are going to go to The Gourmet Corner in Hoi An.

Only down side was the service was a bit fast, not untypical for Vietnam.

“Genuine service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

We were seated inside the restaurant but we wanted on the balcony. When room made free they told us but also mentioned that here is for stokers and if we want to eat inside we may. The food was good but more expensive than you are used in Vietnam. The young lady that served us was always with the smile on her face and really wanted to make us feel good.
Nice view over the city.
