Description: SPECIAL: To celebrate the coming festive season, on 24-25 Dec and 31 Dec - 1 Jan 2017, we are going to serve the Special Set menus only. We shall send you a copy of the set menus by email per reservation request. Please kindly send your request to our official email address on this website. The Gourmet Corner restaurant located on the top floor of Hanoi La Siesta Diamond hotel, which 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. PS: Please be informed that your reservation request by email will be answered within 24 working hours or later depend on our work-load at that moment. Any urgent booking request should be made through the phone call. We are sorry for any inconvenience may cause.

This restaurant is fabulous to go to to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Hanoi streets. you cannot hear a beep. The food was good value for your money and nice choices of wines too. I would highly recommend for people to come here for lunch or dinner on your last day or night at this wonderful city. The staff are very lovely and speak fabulous english.

The food was ok and compared to European prices, it was quite cheap. We could have eaten more authentic Vietnamese food for less somewhere else. However there is a choice of Vietnamese food and European food on the menu. I suppose if you want to get away from the crowds and wanted somewhere quiet and relaxing, this is the type of restaurant to go to. The service was good. We asked to move to a table with a better view and the staff was quick to do so.

Thanks to all who recommended Gourmet Corner. We had a lovely leisurely set price vietnamese dinner. If you're not a big eater maybe just choose 1 course from the menu as serves are large.
On our visit they were battling with the air con and so we finished our meal on the terrace with fantastic night scape of Hanoi. Good suggestion by the staff who are very friendly. With extra beer and a cocktail ($4) we still paid less than $35 for 2 people for dinner. Highly recommended.
