All over, great food

I didn't realize it until later in my trip, but Gecko restaurants are all over the Old Quarter. As a vegetarian, I was thrilled by the mock-meat section of the menu. Delicious food. Fun atmosphere. GREAT music (lots of Johnny Cash and such). Easy stop if you want to escape the busy streets and... read more

We really loved this place. Actually it quickly became our favourite place and we ended up having 4 meals during our 2 day stay! The location was perfect, so close to all the hostels - great for backpackers. The food portions were generous and you can't put a negative on the quality of food either. The prices were cheap and...

We were walking all over Hanoi for the weekend and stopped at several places for snacks and drinks. Gecko was the place that had the best variety of both Eastern and Western snacks and the coldest beers. Gecko also had the best service we experienced during the weekend. We wanted to find some places to recommend to friends who were... More

I've been to 2 locations. The one on Hang Manh street had horrible service and I left after 5 minutes. I'm in another one now that is much better. But the bread served with breakfast is obviously old as it is rock hard. If you're hungry and you're nearby come here and it's fine. But don't go out of your... More

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.

Some of the friendliest and most genuine staff I have found in Hanoi. I was very disappointed that I found this place just hours before I was about hop on a bus. Will make a point to go back if ever in Hanoi and would highly recommend to travellers. Also thank you for the chop sticks, they will be with... More

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. I would... More
