Lovely food, great for carnies and veggies!

Lovely little place with great food and friendly service. Loads of options for veggies with 'mock meat' and excellent spring rolls! Thank you!

I wonder how could Gecko possibly get all of the good comments? Their food here was simply horrendous. Begin with a tuna salad that got less than few slices of tuna to a burnt toast and a also burnt omelet. Honestly, how could they did that with such a basic dish?

Found this when recommended by a local travel agent across the road. Good "happy hour" ideas as you can get a good size meal without breaking the bank. The food is good and the staff are very friendly. Nice feel about the place, we ate here a few nights in a row and never had any problems at all.

Good food, nice atmosphere, bit slow service, cheap drinks perfect for backpackers Definitely worth a visit Keep your eyes open it's a bit hidden or let's say small and finally normal sized chairs ;)

Sorry to say very poor. The tuna salad I had contained a teaspoon of tuna (no exaggeration)!!! Weird, so I had a plate of lettuce and half an onion covered in a sugary dressing. Also my healthy choice of carrot juice had sugar in it. My partner had pizza which was awful and he was violently ill the next day... More

Our hotel mentioned this place and we went last night. Satisfied with food but no smiles from the waitors. Lunch time today we went to a purely Vietnamese cafe. The food was far superior and half the price. Tonight we only wanted a snack and called in at Gecko as it was close by. Ordered spring rolls and two deserts.... More

The food here is really good, I had a burger and the patty was a decent size. It was reasonably priced as well.

They have about 8 locations around the city, several of which are just around the corner from the other locations. I visited the 40 Hang Manh location in the old town. They offer 2-4-1 Happy Hour all day for large Tiger Beer (25 VDN). This location has a few tables inside the entrance and an upstairs seating area (caution of... More

Place looks nice, and service is friendly. But the food was decidedly below average. An Asian golden oldie of Chicken with cashewnuts was a disgrace. Dry chicken, and no more than 6 cashewnuts to be found in there. Dish was bland, too. Come on, guys, ever heard of a little thing like 'salt' before? (Or garlic for that matter). Other... More

We paid $20 for the worst pizza we have ever had in our life. The shrimp tasted totally like dried, and the cheese was nearly the same with floor - in yellow cover. And the pizza base was really a disaster. The drinks weren't any better either - I wonder did they truly brought us a genuine lemon water or... More
