Brought some teenagers here on a school trip from Australia. The place was quiet, clean, and a great place to escape from the bustle outside. Our meals were delicious and the staff were friendly. One of the kids paid for all of our meals and we were about to leave when the waitress came back and handed a lot of... More

I visited this restaurant quite often when I was in Hanoï. I was happy with the range of dishes on offer (French, Italian, Mediterranean and local Vietnamese). My favourite dish was probably the Cordon Bleu chicken with fries - yum - and it came with a beer and ice cream for dessert, all for a reasonable price. Wifi access throughout... More

On a previous trip we ate at another Gecko which was amazing it was on Hang Bac St. Our friends had eaten here and said it was very good. As it was close to our hotel we thought we would try it out. We possibly went on a bad night. The food was very disappointing and the service was extremely... More

Had lunch here today thought waiter did not really want to be there and coughed all the time. The shrimp and banana flower salad I had was terrible I think the banana flower was old and tough. I make this at home and could make better. I think they concentrate on western food by the looks of the other customer's... More

We stayed at the Golden Silk hotel close to this little Gecko restaurant, at the first crossroad going out of the middle of the Old Quater. We mainly went for the Tiger beer which they have conveniently priced and always took something to go with it. We tried all versions of spring rolls which were delicious, the mango salad, and...
