“Hit and miss”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Gecko there are around 7 of them in Hanoi! Some we ate at were fantastic, others not so great. It's got a good happy hour and most staff are pleasant. I can't provide more information as the differences between food quality was quite vast. It's as my title suggests, but if you get a good one you will eat some great food.

“great cafe for beer, food and ambience”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We keep going back to Gecko for a beer and food. We stumbled across one of the cafes while wandering through Hanoi on the day we arrived. The food selection is good, the ambience of the cafe is peaceful and comfortable and the prices are reasonable. Large tiger beers 16,000 dong and with happy hour only 10,000 dong. The spring rolls are very good as is the steak sandwich. Highly recommend this cafe, a lovely place to enjoy a beer and something good to eat while you escape the bedlium of of Hanoi traffic for a short while.

“Good western food and fair price”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Beer and pizza made for a familiar meal at a fair price in downtown Hanoi. Read the "happy hour" pricing for the best deals, knowing every hour is "happy hour" or so it seems advertised.

“A reliable f&b retreat.”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Lovely fries, and their version of the local fish dish 'cha ca' was pretty good! We visited gecko several times because although cramp, we didn't have to sit elbow to elbow with strangers and the kids enjoyed their sandwiches and French fries : )
