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.

We loved our night here so much that we came back on our final night in Vietnam. The food was flawless and the service was even better. Sitting atop the old quarters of Hanoi, enjoy a cocktail served by an old friend and look out across one of the most spectacular views of the city. A must do!

“Great ambience and fantastic food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Went here because of the great reviews here on TA, and we were NOT disappointed. We stayed in one of the sister hotels, and had luckily made a reservation. The restaurant was full, so we were happy we had made the reservation.
We were met by a very nice waitress, who explained the menu for us and suggested drinks suitable for our choice of food.

The menu had both vietnamese and some international dishes, but we had just vietnamese food.
Our meal was so good!!! I had among other things, some pancakes wrapped in ricepaper, and that was very tasty! Highly recommended!!!

The restaurant is quite small and has a fantastic view over Hanoi. It is a rather posh restaurant but with very reasonable prices. Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Hanoi!!

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Had a good meal here tonight.
We ordered the rib eye steaks and were not disappointed.
One small criticism my wife requested medium and her steak came medium rare.
The service was good as was the ambience.
Make sure you book.

Great food, great wine and great ambience. You can't do anything wrong with the food you order. Making reservation beforehand is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

“Great view and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Small restaurant with few seat, very romantic. Food is very good, last order is taken at 9,45 so no late dinner. Really a good place to choose if travelling in hanoi and you are missing an elegant touch.
