There are several Gecko restaurants in the Old Quarter - we dined at the one in Ma May. We had a few hours to kill before a late sleeper to hue....the food was lovely, the service good and the beer cheap. Happy days!!

Someone told me it was nearly impossible to get bad food in Hanoi. Well, that person never went to Gecko. The food was expensive, tasted quite bad and service was just ridiculous. We went there to get some western type food (after a months in Vietnam) and we were very dissapointed.

Definitely the best food we ate in Hanoi, the staff were friendly especially the bar man Thomas. We read about his special Pho cocktail, no it isn't soup but inspired by Pho flavours such as black cardamom, cinnamon, star anise, topped with chilli to your taste & little coriander, best cocktail we've had. The Vietnamese food was yummy! Maybe a little bit more expensive than a local eatery but guaranteed clean & delicious. Worth every cent & still very cheap . I would recommend to anyone. We ate 4 meals there in our 3 day stay. Maree & Dave from Sydney
