This restaurant has a really cozy ambience; perfect lighting, background music with a vintage feel decoration. I must say a lot of thought was put into this, they did a really good job. Now, their food is absolutely flavorful, succulent meats, luscious mocktails etc... and for the amount they charge it is incredibly resonable. Not forgetting their service is great,... More

We checked out two of these joints in Hanoi, both had a nice atmosphere and one had great music. The sandwich we enjoyed at one was just ok. The beer prices were great for the area.

We visitied Gecko multiple times while in Hanoi - it's great for a quick bite and drink or for a full meal. The staff is extremely accommodating and the location is very welcoming. We'll be visiting again in the future. We particularly enjoyed the pizza!

For the price we paid we did not get very much food. The shrimp fried rice was average and the chicken curry was bland.

My husband and I decided to go for dinner here after checking out their menu with a vast variety of both Western and Vietnamese food. The service we got was very good to start off with, drinks came out very fast. We waited over half an hr for entrée. Just because we were "asian foreigners" our order was last priority... More

This is not the place to eat Vietnamese food, it is made for some "western" taste. That was the answer from the waiter when we asked why chili beef didn´t have any chili.

The staff is really friendly and they speak good english, the place is clean and very nice decorated, they have 4 tables and that's all they need. And the most important, the food was superb, the vegetarian dish reminded me homemade food from when I was little. Everything was very well cooked, with good presentation and good prices, 2 to...

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.
