Good food and reasonably priced

The food on offer here is very broad from traditional Vietnamese to pizzas and burgers. Everything we had was delicious. The service level was good too.

After failed to find TWO restaurants recommended by Tripadvisor, I took a chance at this restaurant which was beside me. I shall say, this was the best meal I have had in Hanoi for two weeks! I ordered garlic bread, chicken salad with mango and avocado and mint tea with apple and honey. Everything was just so tasty! The interior... More

Due to personal circumstances I was forced to eat here 4 times in 2 days. And I'd go back in a heartbeat. Excellent Vietnamese food as well as a great range of western food, great drinks , really friendly helpful staff. If you are in the old quarter it is a must visit. I may go again on the way... More

After trying many places in hanoi and the great street food this city has the offer we wanted to try something else. Gecko cafe was exactly what we wanted - cheap and tasty food, good vibe and great stuff.

We parked our bike there just last Saturday for a couple of drinks because we thought we could see the view from the balcony in the second floor. What impressed us , from the first moment, was the no better word than "RUDE" from the waiter (probably the oldest guy, aged 30-35. No welcome attitude, no thanks, no serving attitude,... More

The atmosphere, the music selection and the food. Don't remember which one of the Geckos I have been, cause there are several. But the food was delicious and the staff very helpful. They also normally have happy hour thing too.

The promise of very very cold beer attracted us to the Gecko cafe in Hanoi on a 44 degree day, and we weren't disappointed. This is a great little cafe that offers large beers at cheap prices, and a good selection of freshly made snacks. Service is also attentive and friendly. Great for a pit stop.

This place has a nice ambiance and friendly service. The food is definitely ok - they serve western food that actually tastes like western food (which a lot of these "western restaurants" in SE Asia haven't quite mastered!). My only complaint, and why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5, is that they make the assumption that if you're... More

We came here on our first day in Vietnam and were really happy with the food we got. We ordered traditional Vietnamese cuisine and it was all very tasty. We came back again before leaving Hanoi!

Good food, nice menu, but the only serve half of the menu. The beer was not so cold. The burger and curries are good. The chicken menu is top! Nice restaurant in Hanoi!
