Nice interior but poor food

The place was nicely decorated & it was interesting to read the notes from customers which had become part of the table displays. The menu was in English, and clearly the place catered to predominantly tourists as everybody else in there was Canadian, American, French or British. I ordered... read more

You can get anything at this chain of cafes, of which there are quite a few in Hanoi. The food is good, cheap, great atmosphere and good service.

While staying in the Old Quarter, near the Big Church, I visited Gecko 43. I ended up stopping here three different times, both because of the yummy food (I loved the chicken cordon bleau!) and the fantastic atmosphere. The prices are very reasonable, as well, not to mention the fact that it is located in a very great spot.

Had a bit of an expensive day so wanted a budget dinner. We got rice and noodles at around 60 dong each and it was buy one get one free on beer so we had a very cheap night! Meal was good and service good. You get what you pay for.

Pizzas were good, drinks were cheap, and the staff were fantastic. Sat upstairs and had a drink on the balcony looking over the busy streets of the old quarter - bliss

The food was subpar- I can't believe people ate there every day for their stay in Hanoi, do a... More

As a thin crust pizza loving family from Sydney, the pizza didn't rate very high, but as a change to local food it was fine. We ordered for 4 people 1 large and 1 small pizza. The large was pobably around 30cm and the small was around 22 cm. The food was very basic, you don't go here for a... More
