“Nice place but . . .”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

The Blue Gecko is a nice little restaurant which is tucked away from its street-front presence, which consists of a podium, light, menu and a hostess.

I will say the that the food was good, BUT for a Saturday night from 7pm to almost 9pm we were the only table in the restaurant. That was a unique situation, so you should take from that what you will.

Personally, I cannot think of any reason why I would ever eat there again.

“OMG - 50 cent Tiger beer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Believe it or not I stumbled across this wonderful little gem off the main drag and found their advertisement for 10,000 Doung beer! That's 50 cents for a cold 500 ml bottle! And such a lovely waiter serving it!!!

“Value for money enjoyable dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Down a little alley, restaurant bright and clean, from my seat I could look into the home of a Vietnamese family all having their dinner. Added to the atmosphere, along with the red lanterns and plants. The waitresses were very friendly and sweet going out of their way to ensure everything was okay, the owner introduced himself and he seemed a really nice guy, friendly and welcoming. Fried wontons and spring rolls for starters, followed by tamarind duck, which my husband raved about. I had the vegetable curry, very tasty but a soup with a side of rice. All this and a couple of sodas came to a total of $20AUD approximately.
