We have eaten twice in this 12th floor restaurant located in the Old Quarter. Staff is friendly, service is efficient, presentation of the food is creative and the quality is good. My only disappointment was with the rabbit stew which was long in potatoes and short in rabbit meat...although it tasted excellent.

Can't praise this restaurant enough. The food was fresh and delicious, service attentive and friendly and the views are stunning over Hanoi. There was a large selection of dishes and a good selection of gluten free options. If I am ever in Hanoi again I will be going back here. After leaving feedback after my meal I received a lovely...

On the 12th floor of the Elegance Diamond Hotel it offers great city views. The staff is polite, quick, accommodating in everything from wine, happy hour, food to room temperature. It is a very comfortable and slightly elegant spot. I had the beef pho and my husband had chicken with lemongrass and chili. Both were really good. The night view... More

This restaurant was upscale but very reasonably priced. Staff was helpful with gluten free menu navigation. Buy one get one free happy hour drinks!! This was a great place to go to escape the hustle and bustle and noise of the night market. Great view of the city and the bridge.

Great service and lovely staff. Food is excellent, but naturally for that quality of US imported steak it is premium prices. We didn't got dissapointed, the food was so very nice from the starter to the beef, all was so very tasty and perfect done. Steak was a little over cooked, extra sides are not worth it. Service was really... More

Went to the Gourmet Corner Restaurant after reading all the positive reviews about it. It really lived up to the expectations. The restaurant itself is situated on the top floor of a hotel overlooking Hanoi. You really get to see a lot of the city at night. The food and cocktails are great. It's a particularly good choice if you're... More

This restaurant is on the 12th floor offering an amazing view over old Hanoi. Received a warm welcome and excellent friendly service. Thoughtful menu offering Western and Vietnamese cuisine. Marvellous moorish mains. Delicious desserts. Recommend for higher end dining in Hanoi.

Amazing! We really got surprised at the first time here. Although the restaurant is small, it's located on the rooftop floor of the hotel but what if offers to your meal is quite the best! Cozy and lovely as the feature I've known.of the Elegance hotel group. We enjoyed sitting both inside and outside on the balcony to get the... 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.
