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.

“The best food of the holiday”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

We found this place on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. This restaurant is on the top floor (12th) of the Hanoi Elegance hotel with views across the city. The food and service were exceptional. We would definitely recommend the bread crumbed beef which was lovely and tender and the best beef dish we ate in Vietnam.

“Great view great service but expensive if you drink!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Dined based on reviews. Service from staff excellent. View from roof top excellent. Food very good although not better than other Vietnamese restaurants tried. Would eat here again but would stay away or minimise alcohol as quite expensive.

“Top of the morning & evening”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Staying in the hotel itself we were already aware of the excellent breakfasts. However the evening meals better. Forget European/western food stick to the native Vietnamese food as these guy's know how to cook it. As wine is hard to pair accompany it with the local beer and you won't be disappointed. Service is attentive without being intrusive. If it is a clear night you will get good views too. Enjoy.
