Vietnamese cuisine is essentially divided into 3 key regions – southern, central and northern, each with their own specific variations. Northern food is considered more traditional and stricter in choice of ingredients and spices.  The menu devised by our head Chef at The Hidden Gem Café-Restaurant focuses on providing a great variety of good authentic and traditional Northern dishes.  
While Hidden Gem is located in The Hanoi Moment hotel, it is not exclusive to hotel guests.  It is also a very popular restaurant for non-hotel guests and the local community.

Our beverage menu has a great variety of wines, spirits, beers and cocktails as well as delicious fresh juices and smoothies, teas and coffees. All available at any time of the day.

Hidden Gem has a warm cosy feel as you retreat from the hustle and bustle of the old quarter into the restaurant’s discreet ambience.
Choose a table either with soft sofa dining benches or more traditional wooden dining chairs.  Dark wood walls adorned with black and white photos of old Hanoi take you back in time to what the city used to be like.  Dine at solid marble tables lit with warm orange lighting emanating from dark grey metal pendant lights which extend over each table. These give a lovely intimate feel especially during the evening for dinner.

The kitchen is led by our fantastic head Chef who brings his international experience and influence to bear in creating great menu choices.  And equally important as the quality and variety of food are style, presentation and our non-pretentious, friendly customer service. What is key is the experience you receive from walking into Hidden Gem and being seated, to the end of the meal and when you leave. Service is prompt and friendly but also discreet. The waiting staff are experienced in the menu and are able to make recommendations and give information particularly to those diners unfamiliar with Vietnamese cuisine. We know it’s the little touches that count which help make dining at Hidden Gem an all-round relaxing experience.
