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.

Gourmet Corner Restaurant offered a wonderful view and delicious food and wine to share with our Vietnamese friend's who live in Hanoi. Even Mother Nature put on an awesome display by surrounding us with booms and cracks as a backdrop.

The staff were attentive and helpful and offered some tips on what to order and promptly brought us extra serves when we couldn't get enough of the Hoi An Pancake and the fresh spring rolls.

Sadly, it was too hot and steamy to sit outside but will certainly make a lunch date when we next travel to Hanoi.... actually, maybe I best make a lunch and then a dinner booking too as it would be easy to sit back and sip a nice cold wine and sample our way through the Asian choices in the menu!

Everything was perfect - from the food, to the service, the place & prices. I wish they had a bigger place though so many more customers could dine there.

We've just had 7 nights in a sister hotel and on the basis of the excellent room service meal (from this restaurant) we decided to dine there on our ladt night in Hanoi. We've had street food, food court and everytjing in between on this and past visits to Vietnam as well as excellent viet food in Melbourne. Was more than happy with Gourmet Corner. The entrees and desserts were superb. One of the mains lacked a bit of pizzazz but the other was excellent. All our choices from the viet part of the menu. I appreciated the range of dishes as after a long trip away its sometimes nice to have option of western style dish. Service very good-being shown how to assemble one of the dishes was nice.
