You might strike lucky at Gecko if you are here for a short stay. The Gecko chain is very inconsistent and it depends where you go. The prices are good value. But very often the order is taken and what comes to your table is not what you have ordered. Items are on the menu but chefs and waiters dont... More

We sat and had beers, cups of tea, snacks, juices and just watched the world go by whilst avoiding the rain! We visited on a number of occasions, it was good every time, cozy and inviting! The staff were... More

Wonderful service, brilliant price, delicious food. With a really relaxed atmosphere and very attentive staff it is a lovely break from the mad bustle of Hanoi. I am only sad that there are not more of these in the rest of Vietnam. I would definitely recommend this place.

We went into the branch on Hang Gai - the staff were very friendly and the décor well done. My only criticism is that the meal was so small - I ordered garlic chicken with fries and vegetables, and there were literally about 10 thin fries, two tiny sticks of carrot and two thumbnail size pieces of broccoli. This was... More

Walking around the streets found this place, not far from st Joseph's church. Great food, cheap as well. Staff really helpful with limited English. The sign outside says clean kitchen and cheap too. Agree with the later, couldn't see the former, but no issues my part. Just up the road is a family mart, the local version of a seven... More

Really nice restaurant & charming (Around 6/8 tables), so better as you can feel the quiet & comfortable atmosphere. The food is good (Amazing noodles with vegetables) and the service is amazing, they are so kind. It's a really strong recommendation from my point of view.
