Love this place - the food is great, portions are big and it's all brilliant value for money. I've been three times now, and every time I've had a delicious footlong toasted baguette with fries and two tiger beers, all for 90,000VND. Will be returning again during my next visit to the city!

Really nice staff, good food, and there's a few of them around Hanoi. Ask for the Sorrow of the War cocktail. It's really nice and cool to watch how they make it

Very good atmosphere and very friendly people. I had a big portion but my husband went for desert and starter too so I guess it depends. Competing to other restaurants price more or less the same but good service. Street food of course is cheaper. And you can leave your feedback or message under tables glass surface. Definitely recommend to... More

This was the best place we ate in while in Hanoi. The location is great, it's worth just having a beer on the balcony and watching the world go by. If you do eat; the food is great, really great, the staff are really nice and very attentive and the prices are good too.

Nice little place with good staff. Had a pizza (which was OK), and two beers for about 150,000 dong (about $7). Good place to eat if you want something quick, simple and fairly cheap

The Gecko cafes in Hanoi are fantastic, but our favourite is the one on the Hang Bong Rd! The staff are great, and very helpful indeed. The bartender Mr. Kelvin made for us the amazing 'sorrows of war' cocktail, and not only is it a great cocktail but its a cool experience watching it being made. Deffinately worth a visit

We've been here on each of our past 3 trips to Vietnam, and it's comforting that it has not changed over the 3 years. Great staff, huge menu, tasty food, and delicious drinks. The mojitos are my favourite... the food comprises a range of local Vietnamese and Western dishes. I've enjoyed everything I've ordered.

Near the night markets but without the hassle. Clean, friendly service, well priced. Food is fresh and delicious. Traveled south to north Vietnam- defiantly one of the best food places we've visited.
