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.

“Great food, staff and view”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We had a wonderful evening at The Gourment Corner Restaurant on our last night in Hanoi.
We were given a table with an outstanding view overlooking the city and lake. The staff were very attentive and friendly. All the food we selected was good especially the tempura sea bass and the home made icecream. Very good value for money too.

“Good but for the price, it should be better.”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

This was number 1 in Hanoi for restaurants, and on that basis we went for a special occasion. Upsides, great view, excellent service, nice interior. Downsides, the quality of the food at this level should be better. It wasn't bad but I've eaten much better for half the price - Yin Yang being a case in point.

“One of the best in Hanoi”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

On our last night in Hanoi three of us had a very enjoyable dinner at The Gourmet Corner. The view is beautiful. The restaurant stylishly modern. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The waiter overheard us wishing one of our party Happy Birthday. When our dessert arrived there was a candle on his dessert. This kind of attention to detail sets this restaurant apart. Needless to say, the food was exceptional. I completed the comment card and the next day I received an e mail from the manager thanking me for my comments. I found this another reason to highly praise this restaurant. I have never had that occur with any restaurant I have ever, in my long life, completed a comment card. This shows the management and staff care about their customers. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. The cost for our splendid meal was a mere $53 USD.
