“Very helpfull staff and good hot pot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

We never ate a hot pot in Vietnam... The staff helped us choosing our ingredient even if their english was basic. The hotpot was tasty and all the ingrédient were fresh. A very good expérience in A REAL vietnamese restaurant!

“Bad experiment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

I'm open to try new cultural dishes and was recommended to try the chicken and mushroom hot pot. The chicken was black with very little meat and the broth was very salty. Ordered French fries to eat something for dinner and there were about 12 for 75,000vnd. I'm heading for a baguette.

“Good, but. . . . . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

We had had Oron recommended to us for its grilling, so we went there for lunch with some reasonably high expectations, which were only partially met. The service was friendly, and we struggled with the language barrier, and got ordered what we wanted, two different duck dishes, and a mixed grille of mushrooms. All of the food was tasty, and the young lady who did the tableside grilling for us was good at what she did, but we ordered three entrees which all should have been fairly rich and satisfying, but because of small portions, particularly on the protein, we went away hungry, and had to go seeking a bahn mi stand to take care of that issue. The bill was in the reasonable range for a meal, but be aware that if you want to get a reasonable sized meal, for 2 people, you will probably need 4 or 5 entrees, at which point the tab will be a little high for this area.

“Amazing Oron Beef BBQ, Incredible Customer Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

one of the best dining experiences in Vietnam Thus far ...

The staff made us feel extremely welcome from the second we came to view the menu at lunch time, till the moment we left after having dinner there.

There is a Tiny Gap in the language department... but for any traveller, we see that as fun more then something you need to Review about, and with the entire menu in english .. the smiles don't get lost in pointing, but their english is better then a lot of places we have visited.

the BBQ was superb, i thought Lanterns In Nha Trang was going to take the Gong for Top BBQ but these guys take it up a notch ... Their Oron Beef is incredible Beef... coming from an Australian, just take my word for it... The Wild Boar And Duck also mixed up the BBQ experience a bit which made it great.

Costings... the Meats were all 100,000dong each ... Portion servings are good.. with the 3 dishes (plus little condiments that come with it) really filling us up well.. plus seeing Sappora Beer was music to my ears, so we splurged and got a can each of that (80,000) ... so not the cheapest meal, but one must occasionally enjoy a good meal.. and this certainly ticked that box.

Our Waiter was brand new, But did everything in his power to make sure we had a great evening, So thankyou greatly if you read this, And the Owner/Senior Chef lady was Very Very nice, coming over to chat on occasions (although she didn't speak a word of english) plus a honey Yogurt Dessert and Tea to Compliment the Meal on the House.

i wish we had more time here so we could return, but i highly recommend u pop in for a evening.

“Maybe for vietnamese visitors only”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Admittedly, food was not too bad once we ordered.... but the staff really spoke very very little English. I'm sure this place would be fine for Vietnamese travellers.
