Our first visit to a Vietnamese restaurant in Hanoi and we hit the bulls-eye. Every dish, from starter to desert, was a surprise. The waitress and waiter were very attentive and helped us select the best dishes and drinks. We returned a couple of days later after experiencing some other restaurants, but they never came close to the Gourmet Corner.

We ate here a few times during our stay in hanoi. The menu is quite extensive and although a bit on the expensive side, it is worth it for what you get. The food is really good quality and the service is first class. The restaurant also offers good views of hanoi.

Gorgeous meal on our first night in Hanoi. We shared spring rolls to start and then I had the steamed sea bass in banana leaf and my husband enjoyed a really good steak with fries. Dessert was lovely and the cocktails were also good.

Overall the food was 10/10 so was the view and the service. Make sure you book so you don't miss out. We went on a rainy night and watched the lightning show out the window.

We wanted a treat for our last night on Hanoi and we found it in this exceptional restaurant! Our waitress was super attentive. She even showed us the best way to eat the local dishes.

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. The Gourmet Corner food menu is the combination of Vietnamese and some Western favorites. Our Vietnamese food options mostly are the dishes from the North. In northern Vietnam, a colder climate limits the production and availability of spices. As a result, the foods are often less spicy than those in other regions, especially the middle part of Vietnam. Black pepper is used in place of chili as the most popular ingredient to produce spicy flavors. Also, coriander is used commonly in most dishes. In general, northern Vietnamese cuisine is not bold in any particular taste - sweet, salty, spicy, bitter, or sour. Most northern Vietnamese foods feature light and balanced flavors that result from subtle combinations of many different flavoring ingredients. You can also drop by for a drink at the terrace bar to see the panoramic view of the lake, the river in the sunset. PS: Your booking email will be answered by our reservation team within 24 working hours. Any urgent request should be made through the phone call. Note: We plan to temporarily close for about 10 days, from 1st June to 9th June, 2016, for renovation. We are sorry for any inconvenience may cause.
