We visited a couple of times and the service was good every time. Food is good considering the price and location and tourist status. Good value for money!!

The restaurant has a youthful funky vibe, great music... More

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.

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.

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.
