There is a Gecko at 40 Hang Manh Street - from the other reviews here it seems that there are others in the area. My experience was good. The spot is cozy and the menu offers both local & western food. I find this is a must when you have a few people - not everyone wants local food and... More

We went to a couple of the Gecko Cafe's and really enjoyed them. Food was good, choices to suit most tastes, nice cold beer and cold drinks, and friendly staff. Probably a little tight on space but really not an issue.

it had ok shakes but everything seemed over priced. It seemed like it would have good food but no one was ever in the place. However, it is located next to the hanoi backpackers hostel.

We visited 4 of the Gecko chain whilst here as it offered a good choice of most things and our Party of four all had different tastes. we also booked a cookery class through them which we felt was great value and really worthwhile. We learnt to make 3 dishes and it only took a couple of hours. There are... More

Two visits -- the first better than the second with respect to the food. Noticed other Aussies frequented this restaurant as well. Good service. A bit of a cramped space (quite narrow).

The food tastes great and is cheap also. About the service, it was fine, the waitress was kind but if we wanted to ask for something it took a while for them to pay attention.

We went several times to the Gecko cafe on Hang Be street for a drink after a day of exploring. We felt right at home and the value for money is excellent . If you are hungry the gecko pizza is good as is the traditional fried spring rolls. Staff are generally students and are sweet to speak with. All... More

I often take my friend to come to restaurant. Even it is not big space for us, food is very good,. And price is very reasonable, not expensive as other restaurants. Staff is professional too.

First impressions: Like the proverbial seven blind men describing an elephant, I feel the need to preface this review with a caveat: There are more than one Gecko Cafe in Hanoi. When we first visited, the place was one of 5 in a chain of cafes.(I read that there are 9 or 10 cafes at present) I say this so... More
