“Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

If like me you are a little apprehensive about eating on the streets but dont want to splurge then this place is great. It has western and Vietnamese food, and a selection of vegetarian options as well.

“Good food, nicely done”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

You'll spot branches of Gecko all over the Old Quarter. If you've been travelling for a long time and fancy something Western instead of Asian then you can't go wrong here. The burger is pretty good and the pizzas are some of the best we've had in Asia. They have a 'happy hour' promotion practically all day and night so a king size pizza and a few beers is very good value.

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

We wanted something other than noodles and this place had it! We ordered a king size pizza and it cost about $7. It did take quite a while to receive but we were able to sit in the restaurant which had a mellow ambiance. I would have liked to eat there again but didn't get the opportunity.

“Pizza was okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The place was okay but not as great as people had said. Service was good. The price was in the higher range for us.
