Great chicken bacon burger

Good service, and cheap prices. The chicken bacon burger was so nice and the chips were great also. We ate here twice and each time we were not disappointed. There are a lot of these restaurants around the city so if your looking for decent cheap food be sure to pop in !

Not the cheapest food in Hanoi but good. We ate there twice. The second time we had the hot pot which was cooked at our table. Great staff with fairly good English.

Good view of the scooter chaos in Hanoi! Happy hour between 3-5PM! Must order the Hanoi Beer. Make sure you get the seat outside in the leftmost part.

I went to Gecko's in September this year. You have to be careful you get the right one as there are about seven in Hanoi as the trade name is a franchise.

Not a lifetime experience but food was OK, lunch was fast and easy. Drinks were OK, fruit juice could have been better. Would go again sometime, but would not recommend it as a place where one has to go.
