After 2 months in Viet Nam we found Gecko's (9 locations!) and welcomed the break. It's as close to normal as we could find and we enjoyed it because it's the best interpretation of International food that we came across. All day happy hour and free green ice tea - the chicken parm with a side of spaghetti and carbonara... More

Nice place to have a drink and watch the world go by, good cocktails & cheap beer, we also had a lovely and fresh baguette, friendly & happy staff we have been to a couple while in Hanoi and you have the choice of seating on the street or inside in air conditioning.

We arrived late and the hotel recommend that this would be within walking distance. I wouldn't recommend this place. The food is catered to American. Non of their food is authentic. If you are looking for Hanoi food, look elsewhere. This is not the place that you would find that. I wouldn't return to this restaurant again.

This little restaurant advertises as being cheap and cheerful, which it is, but it also has beautiful, fresh, delicious food, air conditioning, delightful staff, and an excellent menu for westerners who wish to try local food. Go there!

Just what we needed after 2 weeks in Laos, tasty baguette slightly over toasted. Staff weren't that attentive food took a while to come.

First I thought the Gecko was charming but then I realized it was a chain at every corner of Hanoi. Don't get spaghettis it's really bad but the salad is actually good! Enjoy

Terrible food. It was not fresh, had no taste and poorly presented. It advertises as "cheap and cheerful" - it is cheap, but awful. All of the street food venues we ate at were better value and had fresh, tasty food.

We happened to find this after a 12 hr bus when we were famished. First meal was okay, it's not cheap but it was not bad food. We tried it again in a different part of the city as it was familiar, this was worse. Pizza and chips were not good. I would not say no to eating here again... More

It was an ok restaurant. My dish was ok, nothing extraordinary.It is affordable but if you only have a few days, I would explore other places.
