Been To Gecko Cafe's In Manyny Places In Hanoi. Foods Are Amazing And The Music is Fabulous. The decoration inside the restaurant is Stunning. My Favourite Gecko is The One Near By The Lake. Staffs Are Very Attentive And Always Check If Everything Was Alright.

Great food and staff. They were good bargain offers on the beer and pizzas. The king size - 'make your own pizza' was just great. There were 2 gecko restaurants we visited in Hanoi in the tourist area. Both were equally good ! However in the bigger gecko restaurant there is a very rude travel agent who sits on a... More

We visited twice during our stay in Hanoi. It's a great example of east meets west with both local and western items on the menu. The decor is rustic and the music laid back. The food is lovely, really fresh and reasonably priced. There are several gecko cafés in Hanoi as it's part of a franchise - we went to... More

If you are in central Hanoi try the Gecko Cafe its great for a quick lunch with an ice cold Tiger beer, or for an evening meal after a busy day. The staff are great, the food is great, and the place is great.Try the crepes there are great.This place is fantastic value for money.

My partner and I went for dinner here after being drawn in by the cheap tiger beer and resonable food prices. After being served our rather underwhelming food, I twice spotted a rat running up and down the stairs from a loft area into the restuarant. When I told the waitress of this she pretended she didn't understand at first,... More

Good location, well-trained English speaking staff. I had no complain with either the service or the food here. Suitable for a light meal or two.

What attracted us to try this place was the signage outside that says "Cheap and cheerful" (something like that) The concept of the place was very nice. With different artistic displays on the tables and the walls of the restaurant. the staffs were indeed friendly and the prices are quite cheap. food was nice too. We'd like to try different... More

We stopped in late one night for drinks and decided to go back again for a cheap dinner one of our nights in Hanoi. We were all a bit tired of the Vietnamese food (although we LOVED it all) and the kids wanted some Western choices, so we decided to try it for dinner since the notes of praise tucked... More
