“Twice in 2 nights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across this gem of a place last night. Down a small path, we were warmly welcomed by the staff and were able to get away from the noise of the main street. The food was so cheap and really delicious. We were so taken by this place that we went again tonight. A big thank you to the staff, from the 3 kiwi lads you served!

“We want to come back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

It was our first trip to Vietnam and the occasion for us to discover a totally new culture. We didn't know much what to expect as we were supposed to travel to Maldives initially, but had to re-schedule at the last minute. On our first day in Hoi An, we were really unsure or where to have our first dinner so I checked here on Tripadvisor and we selected the Blue Gecko based on the reviews it had. The place was quite busy but the owner, Xie, took the time to welcome us. As he saw we were completely confused with the menu and what to choose, he proposed to pick some typical dishes for us. I would say only one word: Wonderful! From this moment on my wife and I completely fell in love with Vietnam, the kindness of Vietnamese people and the absolutely delicious food we had there. Thank you Xie for this Wonderful introduction to the Vietnamese culture!

“We simply didn't like the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Agree with previous reviews that the staff at this restaurant, including the owner, are lovely and the decoration is beautiful. Unfortunately our food experience just wasn't right. We ate at so many excellent restaurants in Hoi An and wished we had more time to go back to all of them, except for Blue Gecko. First, the food took about an hour to come, even though we were the only guests. Not sure why we didn't get our drinks until the food was ready, despite reminding the staff that they should at least give us our drinks. And when the food finally arrived, it was not tasty at all. Same for the drinks. I probably only had one small sip of my smoothie, that's how bad it was. I would not recommend this place.

“Rare enough to mention here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We were looking for a great restaurant and were actually advised to go to another one, but on the way we passed by this one, liked it and decided to make a wild try. That was the best decision on our trip! The food is excellent and the service really amazing! So good that we went back the next day and enjoyed it even more. Highly recommended!
