We went to The Gourmet Corner after a friend's recommendation and its high rating on Trip Advisor. For those intending to have a meal there, I would recommend making a reservation as the place was packed on the evening we were there.
We went for the set meal and ordered a burger ala carte. The shrimp spring rolls (starter) were great, the best we tasted during our short stay in Vietnam. The main course that came with the set was a bacon wrapped beef (Australian ribeye) with asparagus. It was delicious. We were disappointed with the burger, and informed the waitress when she asked for feedback while clearing our plates.
And as most of the other reviews have mentioned, their service was top notch. Firstly, based on our feedback, the manager came by and apologized for the burger. He promptly offered to waive the charge for the burger and suggested something else as a replacement.
There was a thunderstorms as we were leaving the restaurant. The manager asked us if we were intending to take a cab back to our hotel. He then proceeded to make arrangements with the hotel reception to call a cab for us. When the cab arrived, the staff at the hotel reception sheltered us to the cab and gave the driver instructions to bring us back to our hotel.
In all, visit The Gourmet Corner if you want to have a meal in a nicely decorated restaurant, with good food, great views of the Old Quarter and excellent customer service.
