Great atmosphere. The food was fresh and exciting. Drinks were at reasonable prices and the service was good. Great to have free Wi Fi and air conditioning.

Travelling in Hanoi found this small restaurant in the old quarter, enjoyed our local meal with great interior design. Very reasonable prices. Do give it a try.

I only ate here twice and i had the same thing and i have no regrets. I love their pork chop and during the second time almost all of my 9 other friends ordered the same thing. It's definitely a break from all the spring rolls and pho.

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

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
