Nice easy going eatery

In the heart of the old city, if you need a quiet, comfortable place to eat, this is it. Local and foreign food at reasonable prices served by smiley friendly staff at sensible prices. It's definitely worth a try

I can't count the times I've been there anymore.. But it was always very enjoyable. It is cosy, the staff is very friendly and they serve a lot of great food for very good prices. Best western food I ate around Vietnam. Meaning: different western dishes than pizza or burgers. Also the Vietnamese dishes are delicious! Enjoy!

Geko is a great little place for Vietnamese and western foods that includes pasta, burgers, ribs, desserts, smoothies etc. There is a full bar of beer, wine and spiris plus tea and coffee. Free WiFi is available. We opted for a selection of Vietnamese starters and western main dishes, all were very enjoyable. A good place to go any time... More

We loved the Gecko. Definitely targets the western diets, fine for us. The happy hour deals are amazing, 2 big bottles of tiger for 28000 vdg. Their desserts are well priced and presented. We had the chicken pesto pasta, perfect!! The staff makes the place what it is though. Ultra attentive, appreciative and kind. They have every customers care in... More

The chicken stew was delicious! This café has quirky interiors and a few of its artefacts are for sale. The staff is smiling and warm and make one feel... More

We walked past this place a few times and only decided to eat here the last night of our stay in Hanoi. This is a good place to eat at when you get tired of Vietnamese food. I had a great burger at a reasonable price. The majority of people at the restaurant looked like tourists, which makes sense as... More
