Walking around the streets found this place, not far from st Joseph's church. Great food, cheap as well. Staff really helpful with limited English. The sign outside says clean kitchen and cheap too. Agree with the later, couldn't see the former, but no issues my part. Just up the road is a family mart, the local version of a seven... More

Really nice restaurant & charming (Around 6/8 tables), so better as you can feel the quiet & comfortable atmosphere. The food is good (Amazing noodles with vegetables) and the service is amazing, they are so kind. It's a really strong recommendation from my point of view.

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
