We had enchiladas and pizza. The enchiladas were fantastic, the Beer Lao cold and staff was extremely attentive and friendly. We took the table next to the window upstairs and could see the world pass by. Did not sit outside because it was a rainy...More

No wonder, this is the first time that I went to a restaurant with high marks that actually is very good!, a little bit difficult to find, so ask your hotel for directions. It is in the street where all the parties take place, but...More

A little tricky to find, as it's not on a main road, rather a walking street, and minimal signage. The paninis were impressively-sized with decent flavor. Service excellent.

I visited this restaurant with my family. Totally awesome service. Great food (I had the panini). Desert of waffles with ice cream was incredible. Can't recommend this place enough

The food in Yunnan is delicious! But we needed a western infusion and Blue Gecko did not disappoint. Ordered spaghetti bolognaise and it was very good. Veggie fried dumplings were suggested and also yummy. Overall thumbs up.

A very small place up the steam from the old town serving some interesting choice of dishes. I can imagine this is a very picturesque setting in the spring and summer. It's lovely enough in the winter. The food was good at reasonable prices. We...More

This is a wonderful little restaurant, out of the main hustle and bustle of Old Town but iright next to the waterway running from the mountains. The choice of food is varied from wonderful Chinese dumplings ( I get the vegetarian option) to enchiladas (...More
