Description: Located on the top floor of Hanoi La Siesta Diamond hotel, the Gourmet Corner restaurant 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.

“Wonderful service, delicious and fresh food. Loved it!”

We used tripadvisor to find a Vietnamese restaurant with a view. The view is lovely, especially from the terrace. The food was beautiful, we loved the rice paper rolls so mu
Ch that we ordered a second round. It's cheap, extremely fresh and clean. The staff are achingly polite and go out of their way. We have a lot to learn in Australia about service in a restaurant. Try this one.

“the gourmet corner restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

We tried this restaurant and it was beautiful. It cost $83 us for 4 adults. We all had 3 courses each and 2 cocktails each. Not bad at all. The name of the hotel where the restaurant is located is "Hanoi Elegance Diamond Hotel" locat at 32 Lo Su street in old square. As far as dollar value is concerned we would highly recommend this place. they have vietnamese food as well as western. Even eye fillet steak for those that are over noodles. the view is fantastic, even though it is o roof tops and high rise buildings. Well worth a visit. I would recommend that you make a reservation.

This restaurant is in our hotel so we've had bfast here twice and dinner once. Has a nice rooftop deck as well as inside dining. Great views and we watched a beautiful sunset the other night. Food is good and everyone is nice.

“Enjoyed it so much we went back a second time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

This was a great little find in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. We enjoyed it so much we went back a second time. Up on the 12th floor, you are away from the bustle of the street and the open rooftop section is a great spot to enjoy a drink before or after dinner. We enjoyed the food, and the staff were outstanding.
