Super spot overlooking the city. Service good as we now expect all over SE Asia. Unfortunately the food was not hot enough. My wife had to send her dish back to be re-heated. My dish was uninspiring. The staff concentrate on the service, attention and imagery but they should perhaps get their product - the food - right first.

We had an excellent meal at Gourmet Corner with a table on the window, giving us panoramic views of Hanoi. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Four of us stumbled into this restaurant after reading a review on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint! The view overlooking Hanoi is spectacular at night. We were quickly ushered to a table even though we didn't have a booking and treated to excellent service. The menu is just divine. I am vegetarian and so is my sister while... More

Dear ghal, Thank you so much for your great review about the exquisite dining experience at the Gourmet Corner restaurant recently. It is a huge relieve for us to learn that our limited choices for vegetarian foods impressed you as much as the other food did on your husband and your sister. Because in fact, we are a small restaurant... More

I dined twice in top-class restaurants in Hanoi and I was disappointed both times. Don’t waste your money in fine dining in Hanoi, if you are vegetarian. My dead dad cooks tastier vegetables than I was served in this restaurant and definitely any eatery in the world can make a better, tastier and yummier cheese sandwich with fries. The service...

Picked this restaurant from reviews on Tripadvisor and it lived up to past reviews. Food is very good and staff work hard at satisfying customers. Of course it's more expensive than the local restaurants but not unreasonable for the nice dining experience you can have.

Visited this restaurant based on the excellent reviews. The best feature of the restaurant is the excellent service - staff were very attentive to our needs. The food was good, but very pricey and not much more impressive (other than the presentation) than what we have had in most decent restaurants elsewhere but for half the price. My conclusion is...

If you want a break from street food come here. Restaurant is elegantly appointed with great enclosed rooftop views (lots of continuous windows). Staff was very polite and helpful. I ordered cashew chicken, which came with a small portion of rice and a small bowl of sweet and sour soup. Everything was delicious. The chicken had various subtle flavors which... 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.
