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.

“Excellent dining a must try”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

We went yesterday to have dinner, slightly tricky to find, since it's inside the elegance diamond hotel in the 12th floor and the entrance is small.

The staff was delightful and extremely helpful they gave us suggestions on everything specially on Vietnamese food, we stuck to vietnamese food, everything we ordered was very nice, specially the Bun cha or something similar which was delicious.

The bill was 42$ with beer, cocktails and loads of food which was reasonable in a place like this. Definetly a must try in Hanoi.

“Superior Services and Nice food”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

The Breakfast was excellent and the manager went to every table to make light conversation. Totally knocked off by their excellent services.

Highly recommended for fine dining as well. We did have an enjoyable evening. Nice city view, make reservation to avoid disappointment as the restaurant is small.

“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.
