“The best food and service in Cambodia yet”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We ate twice at the Gecko cafe and both times were leaving fully satisfied with the delicious food and exceptionally attentive staff. The dishes are a combo of khmer, Mexican and other western with good selection of deserts.

Although the prices are slightly higher than in neighbouring restaurants, it well worth it. Plus it supports a good cause.

Would thoroughly recommend. Especially the Mexican chicken :).

“Great food, great cause”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I was a bit skeptical when I saw the menu - everything from American breakfasts, to pizza, to Mexican, to burgers and wraps. But went there twice and the food and service were great. Breakfast with good bacon (!), and a Mediterranean wrap that was delicious. You'll pay a little (not too much) more here than other spots in town, but the quality is worth it, the food is better, and the money helps the local community.

“Lovely staff and good food too.”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Cafe gecko offers up large portions. We both chose an appetiser and a main. Although this is how they are laid out inthe menu, they arrived In drips and drabs and the appetisers were as large as the mains! One of the appetisers we opted for was the tomatoe meatball soup - which also comes with rice! The food was tasty though I don't rate the coconut chicken 'new' item on the menu, it was very dry. The drinks were super tasty, the alcohol less mohjito was fabulous! The staff are extremely friendly and at the back of the menu it tells you all about their background. Downstairs the is a gorgeous little boutique but it closes early so make sure you buy before you eat!

“good food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We really liked their food and came daily for breakfast while in Battambang. As the Cafe is located upstairs this added another plus for us. It's great to watch street life from a distance. The staff is, typical for Cambodia, very nice, too.

“Lives Up To The Rep”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

The Gecko is well known, and desreves to be: the atmosphere is terrific, the staff wonderful and the food excellent. Beer is served in iced glasses. This place knows what it is doing and is well worth the reasonable price
