We had a late dinner here. They are open from 8 am - 11 pm. But make sure to come in at least 10 pm since they might runs out of food after that.

We tried both Gecko restaurants because we wanted a change from local food but we were disappointed in the pizza (boring flavor and texture like most frozen pizzas) and another night at the other Gecko on Hang Bo, the spaghetti Bolognese. Two people we met there had Viet Namses food and said it was delicious. The price is good for... More

Reccomrnded this place by our hostel around the Corner, wasn't disappointed. Lots of happy hour offers on. Had a delicious curry and crepe for dessert. Menu was resonably priced and plenty of choice.

I got here 2 years ago with 2 branches of this chain, Gecko, nearby Sword lake in Hanoi. Both of these restaurants were good to me. From the foods, drinks, reasonable prices and good staff. The space was a little small and there wasn't restroom inside. But they took us to the restroom of the apartment besides. A little bit... More

Ate here three times during our week in Hanoi. Good selection of Western foods and cocktails. The food is always inoffensive. Pizza's need some work. Weird crust that tastes like toasted bread. Curries were good, sandwiches were pedestrian. Good cocktails and service. You'll always leave with a full stomach. Our average bill for drinks and food was 225,000 Dong. It... More

I thoroughly enjoyed garlic chicken which was a proper comfort food :) unfortunately "sorrow of war" drink was good but not as good as described by some of the travelers, the flavor was quite good but it was a short drink cocktail which was a bit too expensive for what you get.

We were travelling with a 13 year old, so needed something good for everyone. We were not disappointed. The staff was friendly, and the meals were all served looking and tasting fantastic. Even the 13 year old liked it...If you are looking for something less local for choices on the menu, this is a good place to visit. The Vietnamese... More

This is a quite nice place for lunch or dinner. You have the choice between European food (like Pizza or Pasta) or local stuff. Quality and service are good!
