A dozen years ago this was a great spot for a drink, centre of the action, fun and motivated staff and all the old travellers were here, it was full of tips and adventure. Now it seems to just be a packed place of folks getting an ok priced beer. The food stall across offers better than average street food,... More

it was an extremely hot day so we asked if we could get our food to go as our hotel wasn't far way. Our order was taken and we were offered a seat whilst we waited. Or food was very tasty. The Pad Thai was I think one of the best I've had. It was well priced too

Gecko Bar is part of an endless collection of small bars & eateries found in the backpacker area of Bangkok that centres around Khao San Road. You can find Gecko Bar at a small T section on nearby Soi Rambutri. It is across from a make-shift, Thai eating area. Both places have been around for many years. Gecko Bar is... More

Terrific tasty stir-fry of morning glory (also known as water spinach) and yummy fried rice made and two reasonably-priced beers made for a fine vegetarian lunch. Good place to watch the world travelers strolling by as well!

Gecko Bar is my favourite place on Soi Rambuttri. Great for people watching. Basic place with the norm plastic chairs and wobbly tables. Beer is reasonably priced. The food not 5 star quality, but you get what you pay for. Only minus for the toilet which is NOT clean.

Whenever we are in Bangkok and stay in this area we make at least one visit to the Gecko. It's not fancy and actually quite dirty but it has become a tradition for us as we have been going there for years. The beer is still pretty cheap and it's always cold. Great people watching and sometimes you can get... More

The food is just okay, but the best part is that it is so cheap. Especially compared to several other places in this (touristy) area. I really enjoyed people watching here. So many weirdos and intersting people at the same time who are just casually passing by. One thing I have to mention about this place though is their service.... More

Great location ...for people watching ....very cheap .....located close to good cheap accommodation .....the gecko bar itself has great coffee to die for ....but the fruit salads could be fresher as we have been there on several occasions ....but would not perhaps eat fruit sealed here again ......
