Service was speedy. The fried veggie spring rolls were lovely - best in hanoi so far. Main courses were good but nothing to write home about. Dessert was enjoyable - banana crepes with vanilla ice cream. Prices are great if you're on a budget. Definitely the place for a quick bite with a drink. Great location.

We went to Gecko and ordered a pizza and a beer. The service and timelessness was good but the food was just average at best. The pizza had nice ingredients on it but there was very little sauce, not seasoned and the crust was dry. The place was fairly busy and it looks like it would be a decent spot... More

Clean, neat & with plenty of space, can escape the hustle & bustle of Bia Hoi corner for a great feed only a few steps away. Could be improved a little as it would be great if upstairs had a view of the street, but the way the bar is configured it just doesn't work out that way. Fairly extensive... More

We have visited Gecko many times, there are several of them around the old quarter in the city. The menu is quite an extensive range of 'staples' - Western and Vietnamese - in,coding salads, sandwiches, pasta, pizzas, etc. A cheap option for a breakfast stop. The beer is fine and very well priced, but the white wine is NEVER chilled... More

There are quite a few of these restaurants scattered around the Old Quarter. They say cheap and cheerful food which it is and and is of good quality. Added bonus when we were there was the Tiger Beer was Buy One Get One Free!!

Good mix of Vietnamese and western food of decent quality at cheap prices, a plate of spring rolls, two mains and two beers for a tenner (£). Great prawns in coconut milk and spaghetti carbonara. Perfect place after a hectic day in Hanoi with an eclectic choice in background music. Ate there three times in three days, thoroughly recommended.

During my visit to Hanoi, I kept coming back here, because of its ambiance, music, and great food. Loved the spring rolls, the pho soup with chicken, and the banana crepes. A great place to sit with a coffee on a cold, rainy day.
