We are a family of four visiting Vietnam for the first time. Sadly it was a very wet few days in Hanoi and this restaurant was recommended to us by some Australians who had enjoyed their meal the previous evening. The welcome was very friendly, the menu choices excellent and the food was prepared and presented beautifully. Our waiter, Khang,... More

We spent four days in Hanoi. We came here for the roof top bar and restaurant views. We were not disappointed, the outside bar overlooking the lake is a great place for a drink. The restaurant only has 10 or 11 tables, with 360 views, so specify if you want a lake view. My wife and daughter had the noodle... More

Great Happy hour, try the fried spring rolls and 3 Hanoi Beers for the price of two on the deck with gorgeous views of the city and the river.

Had a lovely meal here. The staff will bend over backwards for you and the view is good, as is the atmosphere. The food wasn't amazing but it was nice (tried the rabbit curry and the fish steak as well as the mango and shrimp salad to start). The desserts were OK (tried the chocolate cake with orange sauce and... More

The restaurant offers a nice view but the food does not live up to the expectstions raised by its website and entourage. The burgers are quite dry and the Vietnamese food is fancy but lacks taste.

If you really want to eat here, best to make a reservation. Good happy hour deals, quality food, price was a bit high but appropriate for the location, service, quality in general. Definitely a nice evening

We enjoyed a very nice diner here, the food was in top, delicious both for the eye and palette. The view from the terrace and out over the old town and lake is stunning. Just remember to book you table in good time, for getting the best view.

Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Great food. Loved the spring rolls. Large buffet breakfast with many choices. Can't beat the view! Reservations are a must to ensure seating. Only 11 tables.

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.
