    “Wonderful Food, Even Better Staff”

    April 2, 2014 NEW

    This is a great restaurant and really deserving of it;s ranking as one on Hanoi's top restaurants. The location is on the 12th Floor of the Hanoi Elegance Diamond hotel, and you'll need to book a table to get in.

    Food is superb, beautifully presented tasty and delicious. It is a mixture of international and Vietnamese cuisine. If you choose Vietnamese, you'll be in food heaven.

    It's not expensive by our standards but will depend on what food selections and alcohol you order.

    Do your self a favour and try this one out, you will not be disappointed.

    Highly Recommended.

    Ate here on our last night in Bangkok and enjoyed every mouthful! Started with a cocktail then a bottle of white wine. Waitress was superb - attentive without being suffocating which many in Hanoi are! Had the advocado salad followed by the sea bass and then the really delicious pannecotta with mango was to die for. Views from the windows were wonderful and only sorry we did not stay here in the hotel.

    We dined here for one of the last meals of our holiday after a motorbike tour around North Vietnam. We all chose Vietnamese style meals and they were all delicious. Not huge portions but enough if you have a starter also. I had read on here about the Pomelo salad - this was amazing! And we were very excited to have New Zealand ice cream as we are from NZ but live in Europe.

    The staff were lovely and attentive.

    I would recommend that you call ahead to book as it is a very small restaurant, and ask for a table over looking the lake.

    “Best Vietnamese food I've tasted!”

    We went to The Gourmet Corner on our last day in Vietnam having tasted a lot of Vietnamese cuisine the last 2 weeks & the food we had at The Gourmet Corner was hands down the best Vietnamese food we tasted the whole trip! I recommend the Bun Cha, it was exquisite! And the service we got was amazing, our waitress Sabrina was so lovely and helpful. If you want to taste Vietnamese food I highly recommend going to The Gourmet Corner, but they do also have Western cuisine. The place is really cosy also!

    Wow, went there for dinner tonight (22 Mar) from a friends recommendation. When we made the reservation 4 days earlier I briefly mentioned my birthday and can we have a nice table. All tables are lovely and this really is a fine dining experience. They had little balloons and streamers over our table light and also came out singing happy birthday to me with a dessert cake and candles. So unexpected and a lovely touch. I just wanted a nice table with a view! The staff are really wonderful and attentive and the meals were devine. You must go to this restaurant as everything else pales in comparision.
