The pub is fairly cramped. Atmosphere pleasant. Best place to be seated is the balcony, albeit small. Grand view of the surrounding bustling streets. Beer ice-cold - only bottled though. Best time to frequent is during happy hour - half price. Worth a visit.

The menu is amazing, more than 20 pages of choice. We ordered couple of sandwiches and couple of Vietnamese dishes. The sandwiches were very tasty but the local food was not good at all. My fish dish was really bad, I asked to change to another dish, which they did with no problem. Unfortunately the replacement dish was not much... More

We dined at Gecko several times during our stay in Hanoi and found it to be a cheap place to eat with a great variety of food

There are 8 of these restaurants around Hanoi. For us, it was a safe place to take our three kids, where they could eat something the liked. We also have nut allergies, so they were very accomodating.

The best vodkas with fresh pineapple juice or passion fruit for less than $2. Friendly staff and good meals (but don't get sandwiches or burgers). Garlic prawn pasta is to die for.

Music was great, atmosphere was pretty cool. But the food - for us - was nothing really to write home about.. Too bad.

We came here on our last night in Vietnam for a final dinner. We ordered pork spring rolls which were amazing and then some Banh Mi as we had been meaning to eat this famous Vietnamese dish and finally got the opportunity to do so on our last night! Unfortunately the Banh Mi was awful. It was extremely dry, the... More

This place has a beautiful dining area out front and back. The food they offer was very average and lacked good flavour. The meals are very cheap though so if you are after a quick and basic feed, you can get that at this place.

We were looking for another place that was closed, and stumbled on this restaurant - not too far from Hoan Kiem lake - a street over in the Old Quarter area. There was quite a variety of food to choose. We had a Vietnamese starter - chicken salad which was very good. One of us tried the seafood with spinach... More
