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.

“Great staff and great meal! Book in advance.”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

This restaurant is very popular and I had to wait a day before being able to get a reservation. It was worth the wait! The staff are very friendly and our waitress, Sabrina, was amazingly engaging. The meal was cooked to perfection and the wine selection was abundant. I would definitely return.

“Great service and excellent dinner with a view”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

Stayed in the Elegance Diamond. This restaurant is located on the penthouse of same hotel. Buffet breakfast is served here is good value as included price of room. Try the homemade yogurt. Recommend dinner here if you want a good view and a break from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. Book in advance as very popular as restaurant is small. Excellent staff service as we found service staff to be friendly and very competent.

“Great views, staff & food!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

We ate here early one evening before the Water Puppet Theatre which is nearby. We had a great view of sunset over the city, food & drinks were delicious with plenty of vegetarian options. The staff were interested to hear what we had been doing, very friendly & helpful with suggestions.
