Such a nice place! Happy Hours for the cocktails from 6pm to 8pm (4$ per cocktail) and they are really good and big ! For the food it's cheap and tasty: we eat local food as grilled fish with vegetables and bro hok, it was delicious (all food come with steamed rice). Enjoy!

First off, Gecko has moved from its long time location. From the main highway, if you turn on the road the main market is on going away from it (which I think it is west) it will be several long blocks down on your left. A big sign is out front.

Gecko was recommended to us buy a few locals and we weren't disappointed. It is not in the same place as on the Lonely Planet map in the SE Asia on a shoestring book from 2012! You can choose from small, medium or large size and the beef and preserved lemon medium was enough for 2 people. We got free... More

In the morning I grabbed a bike and was heading out to Yeak Loam Lake. There aren't really many places that serve breakfast aside from food stalls (as this is a small town). I stopped into Gecko and had a large meal of two fried eggs, four small baguettes with butter, 2 pieces of ham, 2 pieces of bacon, and... More

Low market Asian standards, flies and rubbish everywhere... still you can fill your empty stomach with acceptable food for a few dollars
