Located on top floor of Elegance Diamond Hotel, this restaurant was just a few doors down from their sister hotel we were staying at. We were lucky to stay so close to such a lovely spot to take a break from street food eating on hot Hanoi nights. We had a full meal there, and also had pre-dinner drinks and... More

The Gourmet Corner has been referred from my Hotel Manager (Hanoi Elite Hotel) and I was not disappointed at all. I went for 3 evenings and enjoy every single servings, from avocado salad to grilled banana leaves fish down to the French chocolate cake. Nice drinks and a good selection of wines. The service was efficient and always with a... More

Since we were staying in this hotel , we had most of our dinner here. The food is fresh and very good. One could actually see the kitchen, which is small and very neat. Loved the way the staff took care of our taste and tried to modify the dishes as requested.

This restaurant is on the 12th floor of a hotel and has the feel of a hotel restaurant, rather than a bustling street eatery, but we enjoyed the tranquility and attentive, relaxing service for a change. The food was excellent!

We chose the gourmet corner due to proximity to our hotel and the high TripAdvisor rating. We were not dissappointed. The service by the staff was excellent and the food was brilliant. Our best meal to date in Vietnam and would highly recommend.

Don't miss it. Incredible service, presentation amazing and one of those places you go to and hope your belly doesn't get full. Most amazing food - ate there several times in a week and was not once disappointed. Wish it was in Australia - I'd be a regular for sure!

I have picked this restaurant for our one fancy dinner out while in Hanoi. I also counted it as our first anniversary dinner, so I requested the table by the window. Reservations were done via email and my request for one was answered promptly and professionally. When we arrived, we were greeted with a beautifully decorated table, with flowers and... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant twice during our recent stay in Hanoi. On both occasions, we had drinks at the bar on the terrace first, and enjoyed the views. The staff at this restaurant are very friendly and the service is fast and efficient. As others have mentioned, this restaurant is fairly small and reservations are recommended.... More

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.
