“Gecko Hang Quat - A Peaceful Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Good mix of Vietnamese and western food of decent quality at cheap prices, a plate of spring rolls, two mains and two beers for a tenner (£). Great prawns in coconut milk and spaghetti carbonara. Perfect place after a hectic day in Hanoi with an eclectic choice in background music.
Ate there three times in three days, thoroughly recommended.

“A Nice Escape from the Streets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

During my visit to Hanoi, I kept coming back here, because of its ambiance, music, and great food. Loved the spring rolls, the pho soup with chicken, and the banana crepes. A great place to sit with a coffee on a cold, rainy day.

“Gecko restaurant on Hang Manh”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

I ordered an Aussie striploin steak cooked medium. It was neither Aussie nor striploin nor medium. It was a piece of oddly shaped meat, probably buffalo. Very disappointing. I had to send it back and had a mediocre burger with 12 fries instead.
