Description: SPECIAL: To celebrate the coming festive season, on 24-25 Dec and 31 Dec - 1 Jan 2017, we are going to serve the Special Set menus only. We shall send you a copy of the set menus by email per reservation request. Please kindly send your request to our official email address on this website. The Gourmet Corner restaurant located on the top floor of Hanoi La Siesta Diamond hotel, which 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.

We first visited Gourmet Corner four years ago and have been coming back ever since. In fact one of the reasons for staying in the hotel Le Siesta Diamond was because of the restaurant and welcoming staff.
The menu is varied and covers a wide range of local and International cuisine. This visit we have eaten in the restaurant 4 times and plan to return before leaving in 2 days. Each time we have tried something different and interesting. Local dishes like the bun cha and sweet and sour prawns are delicious and beautifully presented.
We must give a special mention to the steak which was perfectly cooked and as good as you would get anywhere.
We were also impressed with the attitude of the staff. They were very welcoming and helpful and did an excellant job in making sure you have a memorable evening.

We stayed at the La Siesta Diamond Hotel where this is located so we dined here one of the nights we were there. The dinner was delicious (try their Morning Glory Salad!) and the staff was so kind, attentive, and lovely.

We came upon this restaurant by chance when I stopped to look at the menu outside. I'm so glad we decided to go in. The service was wonderful with friendly, helpful waiters who couldn't do enough for us. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced even though it's a top class restuarant, rated in the top 10 restaurants in Hanoi. The menu was varied and the wine list catered for all tastes. All in all a very special way to spend a wedding anniversary. ***AAA Highly recommended***

We came here on our last day in Hanoi to treat ourselves to a nice lunch. The restaurant is beautiful with a great view. The food was excellent. Our waitress was incredibly kind, had fantastic recommendations, and was so helpful. We wish we had time to return and eat another meal.
