Welcome to Gecko Gecko!
Since 2008, our family restaurant has strived to be the best place to go in Berkeley for authentic, yet adventurous, Thai food.
Carefully prepared using the finest Thai spices and ingredients, as well as fresh, local produce, meats and seafood, our unique blend of old and new combine to create a simple and fresh approach to Thai cuisine.
We cater perfectly to nearby patrons of Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Aurora Theatre and Freight & Salvage Coffee House music venue, as we are located less than 1/2 block away. We are also walking distance to both Shattuck and University Avenues, as a great place to enjoy lunch or dinner before or after seeing a movie, shopping or sightseeing in Downtown, or being on campus at UC Berkeley.
Offering good food and good drink is more than just business for us. Our family is providing you with sustenance and nourishment, made with our own hands. We take great care and pride in preparing dishes that we hope you will savor and enjoy, and that will nourish your mind and spirit as well as your physical being.
This, we believe, is the true essence of Thai cuisine that is shared with friends and family. To complement your meal, you'll be pleased with our selection of wine and beer, which we have chosen specifically to pair wonderfully with our unique cuisine.
If you have been to Thailand, you know we come from "The Land of Smiles." We strive to provide our customers with the courtesy and graciousness that you would find on a visit to Thailand.
We are always excited to share the virtues of our beautiful home country and to offer hospitality with a sincere smile, and it is with the same hospitality we welcome you to Gecko Gecko. We also encourage all of our guests to see and experience Thailand first-hand (feel free to ask us questions).
Gecko Gecko is the second of our family's three restaurants. The first, Citrus & Spice, in Marin's downtown San Rafael, was one of the first "Thai fusion" restaurants in the Bay Area. It was a modern, simple yet unique approach to the solely-authentic Thai restaurants typically found in the Bay Area .
The premise became so popular that we opened Gecko Gecko two years later "across the bay," in one of the Bay Area's most foodie-centric cities, Berkeley. After more than eight years, we are proud to still serve the best "Modern Thai, with a twist!"
For a taste of more authentic Thai Street Food, try our newest Thai adventure, Giin Thai Canteen in Berkeley's Lorin District on the Adeline Corridor (just south of Ashby BART at Alcatraz). It's funkier, it's spicier. Another treat for your tastebuds!
