“Nothing special but good for a quick lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

We went there for lunch. The service is friendly and the place is quite nice with the walls covered by notes left from past travelers. The summer rolls were nice, however my grilled prawns with dill were really dry and didn't have much flavors. My friend had a pizza which was fine.

“Well-Prepared Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

We had two enjoyable meals at Gecko. Thomas, the chef, is very talented and he prepares local as well as international dishes. He prepared a tuna steak for me without oil which was delicious. We would highly recommend this location. There are several different locations - this one is 40 Hang Manh Street, telephone 04.2211 0812. Tell Thomas the Canadians sent you!

“Cheap beer! Food is alright.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

As someone has already stated the beer is really cheap and pretty good. At 10,000 dong a pop who can resist. But i cant rate them only on beer.

We did eat here a few times. I had pizza one night and honestly I didnt think it was that great it took ages to be served. My partner had pizza on another occasion and thought the same. It wasnt bad but you know when you have had better.
However I had lemongrass chilli chicken and it was really good. My Dad also had a few good meals here as did my partner.
Overall its not to bad of a place, its nice to sit and relax and have a few drinks to get away from busy Hanoi.
If your more adventurous i'd say go for a walk and find something a little more Authentic if thats what your looking for.
