We were backpacking around. That day we wanted western food and we were happy with our choice of restaurant. Hamburgers were good. Restaurant was clean, toilets were toilets. Staff very friendly. Beer a bit expensive :)

The gecko moved away from their cool upstairs location to this new location. The new spot has a very hip and clean atmosphere. The staff as always is excellent. I recommend the pizza bar. Also happy hour $1 beers before 7pm

Burger was dry, and incredibly salty. To top it off I've been to the toilet about 7 times in the 5 hrs since I finished the meal. Have a feeling the major lack of competition in Battambang is giving it a TA rating it wouldn't get anywhere else. Decide for yourself.

Sampled the Gecko Café’s cuisine last month right before their move to a larger, swankier place on Riverside. The old location had a wonderful funky charm. There was an ad hoc feel to it. Kinda reminiscent to a hippie crash pad, with rooms added in a scatter-shot manner. Had heard some positive things about the Gecko’s Mexican dishes so I... More

We went for lunch at the Gecko today but it has changed it's name to The Kitchen and is around the corner beside the river. The drinks were lovely but the Mexican food we had was a bit bland.The service was good.

The restaurant is located above a nice gift shop. You can sit inside or outside on the perimeter balcony. We chose the outside and enjoyed the view to the street below. We were warmly greeted and seated quickly. I must admit that maybe I ordered the wrong kind of food as I had read so many outstanding reviews. We had... More

A good place to eat - quick and friendly service in a lovely atmosphere. We had a Thai Green Curry which was spicy but not too hot and a Chicken Fried Rice with pineapple, both delicious. Very good prices as well.

We then had a Cambodian Pumkin curry which was tasteless and very dissappointing. The staff are very friendly and the decor is great but they need to up the anti... More

Nice ambiance with a great balcony. The staff is friendly but way overwhelming with greetings...please tone it down. Their English comprehension is understandable enough to place an order. Location is within walking distance from most hotels. Would I return? Perhaps but would not be my first choice.
