2nd Year of the Gecko Cafe successfully finished

Today is our 2nd Birthday. Two years ago we started downstairs with only a few tables but much passion. So many things have happened until now. We want to thank all our friends and supporting people as well as our faithful guests for a great time and we promise to keep on doing our work with heart and soul, as it is in the character of the Gecko Cafe anyways.

Season August 2009

After the big wedding, the Gecko-Cafe returned to normal business.
It is open and welcomes every guest in its special way with nice atmosphere, friendly waiters and delicious food. And if you are lucky, the new family-member Ammu serves her great Indian breakfast, Dosas and Dhal to you.

A Wedding in the Gecko

We did have a big South-Indean Wedding! Manis brother Uma got married on July 1st. The Gecko-Cafe was nicely decorated and looked festive. The shady entrance was incredibly inviting, unfortunatly it cannot stay forever, because the street is to small and big cars got much trouble passing by.

In the entrance there were ceremonies before the wedding every morning and evening.

They young couple looked most beautiful at the typical south-indean wedding and now the young lady belongs to the "gecko-cafe-family".
