Decent variety of food

We wanted some western food after 2 weeks of Asian cuisine. We walked through the Old Quarter and looked at various menus. We decided to eat here for 2 reasons: air conditioned and variety. The prices are reasonable and the food is of decent quality. Portion sizes are large by Vietnamese... read more

Ordered the spaghetti Bolognese and cheesy garlic bread. My friends starter came fairly soon but mine was no where to be seen. Main dishes were served and about 20 minutes after ordering my starter arrives. Service was average and food was not the greatest

Eventually, one tires of Asian food and requires some good old Western dishes....and Gecko is just the place. The food is good, not fabulous, but basic and good. Burgers, pizza etc. And cold beer. What more could you ask for?

We found a Gecko on Hang Gai just around the corner from our hotel. It was raining so we thought we'd try it to save going further. The food was excellent and the drinks cold. We ordered a few cocktails and the owner came and told us about a special cocktail he makes using a contraption with cups that flow... More

During business in Hanoi, partners take me to Gecko, stay in Hanoi old quarter. Small bar at 2 nd floor, 80s music. 2-3$ for a drink. Good service and favourite.

They have amazing pizza's! Crunchy bottoms and very good toppings. They also had an offer for that day where the kingsize pizza's were coming with a 30% discount. So that made our meal very cheap. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the service is good.

I frequently visit one of the Gecko restaurants in Hanoi when I go there for a day off. The staff is very friendly and the food is quite good. Theres a lot of western food so if you miss that there you can catch up. Since I go there very often the staff treats me like family. This is why... More

While in Hanoi we ate at four branches of the Gecko chain and were aware of two others. At the first one we were amazed at the Quality of the food for the price paid. We were also highly amused at the spellings in the menu and on the blackboards outside. I had the Chican Kordon Blair which was excellent... More

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 horns.

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...
