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.

“A great place--trust the reviews!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Having seen the rave reviews on Tripadvisor about Hanoi Elegance Diamond Hotel and its Gourmet Corner Restaurant, my daughter and I just had to try both. The reviews are on the mark. The restaurant has wonderful views, excellent service, and really good food, all at reasonable prices. Try the set menu for some variety. You may want to make a reservation for a table with a lake view or a river view. Go before dark, and drink in the daytime and night views of all Hanoi. The night lights around the lake are lovely.

If you're staying at the hotel, its buffet breakfast is served in this restaurant. That meal is a winner as well.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

This restaurant has lovely views of Hanoi, including Hoan Kiem Lake. The atmosphere and service were excellent.
We ordered spring rolls (yum!), Pho (probably the best I had in Vietnam), and a Vietnamese chicken dish which I've forgotten the name (also delicious). For all this food and several cocktails and beers it was under $30US.
Remember to book as it was very busy.
