Cheap and cheerful as it says on the sign outside. We stopped here for dinner when we needed something quickly, I had the chicken curry which was served as a big portion and was really tasty. Also returned another day for breakfast which was good value for money! Small place but cosy - you forget about the tooting of motorbikes... More

Just arrived in Hanoi and read reviews of the Gecko. It lived up to expectations and delivered a fine selection of great dishes. We had been recommended the spring rolls and they were nothing short of delicious. I would happily go back just for another plate of them.

Near to the Old City. The Vietnamese food was good and the drinks are cheap. The pizza was so so, according to our friends, but why go to Viet Nam and eat pizza. If you can, get one of the seats on the second floor overlooking the street. Its very entertaining watching the street activity from above.

Ordered the gecko breakfast (79 dong) and was unsatisfied. The price did not math the quality of food, I order over easy fried eggs and the yolk came out hard. The bacon that came with it was two small bite size...not even a strip(see picture). Maybe other dishes made this restaurant have good reviews but I will NOT be coming... More

This seems to be a chain but actually the prices are really good and the food is really nice too. I ordered a takeaway as my girlfriend was ill, had a beer whilst I was waiting. The food came out before I'd finished my beer and it tasted like it had been freshly prepared. Would definitely go again.

Ok, I'm not a person who eats a lot, but went there because so many people recomended us and the prices looked cheaper in comparison with other places in Hanoi. My boyfriend and I asked for spaghetti with pesto and when the plates arrived it was (not kidding) maybe... Half cup of spaghetti? Not even in a gourmet restaurant I've... More
