We ate here a few times and always found the food to be of good quality and value for money. The menu includes Thai and Western dishes, one speciality being the imported Australian steaks. Every day there is a special and the staff were very friendly and efficient. The American owner was often on had to have a chat and a joke with. Make sure you look out for the special offers pasted around the restaurant as you can often get cheap deals on certain meals and drinks. Steaks run 2-300 Baht, while local dishes come in around 100 Baht.

The Gekko restaurant is only one block from the popular night bizzaar. Although they have an extensive Thai menu, this restaurant offers the chance for residents or tourists to sample some western food. Each day there is a daily special including the Sunday night roast buffet for less than $7US. plus Australian t-bone steaks available every night for the same price. The drink prices are far cheaper than most other western establishments and the staff are very friendly and efficient. I live in Chiang Mai and make sure I eat there at least once per week as a treat.

I think Harry must have visited on an off day, as my wife and I visit regularly and have for our last few visits to Chiang Rai, over four years or so.

We have always had excellent service and great food at very reasonable costs.

The Gekko does get very busy in the evenings and in common with other good restaurants as the food is cooked to order there is sometimes a wait for the food to arrive.

We have never had reason to complain, with staff or food.

Its hard to order anything fom the bar staff. Their private conversations in the back are much more importent than service to a costumer.
If the staff was allowed they what spitt you in the face for ordering something. When you pay they go back to the kitchen and let you wait for 10 minutes before the change is given back to you.

The Owner is a laugh though, and the surroundings is also fine.
Good bufé on sundays at a fair price

We just enjoyed burger night, choice of beef, pork, or chicken. Best burger ever in Thailand! We booked our hotel just to be near. Looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner. Food specials every night, and great free wifi.!
