We ate here yesterday and had a few drinks. I had the non fried spring rolls and they were fine. Had some green tea which was fine. Will go back while we are here just to enjoy the views from the balcony upstairs.

I guess my biggest complaint was that it was advertised as a cheap and cheerful place to eat. Food prices in medium range quality was acceptable Bid not like the attitude of my male server there as when I asked for a glass of ice he told me the water was cold enough and i didn;t need it.

Good atmosphere. Food is tasty and not expensive. Maybe it's not something exotic, but it's a great place for everybody who want to be sure that there will be good food and great music )

The food was good enough, although not mind-blowing. For the price and the atmosphere, it was pretty good value. English menu, English speaking staff, and good happy hour deals for beer allowed us cozy and pleasant time . If you're a bit tired of difficulty of communication and missing something home, it's a good spot to have a break.

I had no idea why Gecko could possibly be famous. Or maybe they are famous with their horrible food and service? Both of the Vietnamese food and their pizza was tasteless, and the serving speed was horribly slow.
