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

Travelling in Hanoi found this small restaurant in the old quarter, enjoyed our local meal with great interior design. Very reasonable prices. Do give it a try.

I only ate here twice and i had the same thing and i have no regrets. I love their pork chop and during the second time almost all of my 9 other friends ordered the same thing. It's definitely a break from all the spring rolls and pho.

You might strike lucky at Gecko if you are here for a short stay. The Gecko chain is very inconsistent and it depends where you go. The prices are good value. But very often the order is taken and what comes to your table is not what you have ordered. Items are on the menu but chefs and waiters dont... More
