Looking for some western food we were recommend this place by our hotel. The food was amazing, home made chicken nuggets were a great hit with kids. Pesto chicken pasta was also lovely. Pizza had nice flavours just not as thin based as we were hoping for. Overall a great western meal in Hanoi 😊

Sit upstairs at one of the balconies and watch the madness of scooters and traffic at junctions. A beer in hand, a superb papaya salad in front and the day just can't get better. A delightful bar with easy service and relaxed atmosphere.

We walked by Gecko by a coinsidence and now we know how lucky we were! The food was really really good (we had the steamed fish with dill, Mango/avocado salad & garlic/cheese bread). We also tried the famous "sorrow of the war" drink and we did absolutely not get disapionted! You must try it if you visit!

We came for a dinner randomly, and really liked it! So we came again the dinner the day after! A lot of different dishes, you will find what you want, and different range of price. A really good restaurant.

True to their advert, it's cheap good food. Also, music was pleasant - not too loud and not rock-a-bye-baby type either. Inside the restaurant was cozy while there's a table outside for smokers. We thoroughly liked the seafood basket, gin fizz, mojito and whiskey. Like all Vietnamese restaurants we've been to these last 5 days, service was 👌🏻 and staff... More

I liked this place so much I went twice which is rare as I like to try and eat out in different places whenever traveling. The chicken, cashews and rice is great.

We had nice meals and drinks there a few times. I accidentally broke a small pepper shaker and they tried to charge AUS$14 for a $2 pepper shaker broken by accident. Good place overall, just don't break anything.
