I was looking for something new to try when i stumbled on this place.Not bad considering they're relatively new.The food wasn't all that and i was even disappointed more by the exorbitant prices.All in all,quite a good experience.

Last night my wife and I decided to try Oro despite some of the very varying reviews. When we arrived in our small Nissan we were refused to enter as the 'parking was full'. However when we entered there were plenty of parking space... Was our car too basic? The interior design of the lounge itself is pleasant even if... More

Apart from the super efficient staff at Oro, the food is very tasty. The presentation of the food is attractive to the eye. And the ambience makes one just want to stay on and on. The menu is very creative and they must have an excellent chef executing it. I'm definitely going back and spreading the word!

I've been trying out quite a few restaurant here in Nairobi but I must say that ORO is by far one of the most efficient and (as title) OUTSTANDING! Service was impeccable, food is amazing and the waiters are very polite and efficient. If I had to suggest, go for the stuffed chicken wrapped in bacon... Simply DELICIOUS!!!

We have been at Oro a couple of times before this when they were still relatively new and it was great. Not sure if the laziness bug has caught up with them or they were just having a bad day this time round. Decided to have lunch there on Sunday, 23rd Feb. There was only one other person in the...

We arrived at 8:30pm. 1 hour and 40 minutes later we left having not eaten anything. It's nairobi restaurant week. This is embarrasing to say the least. Nobody apologised, or said anything at any point other than 'we've had a small problem,' which was about 50 minutes into our visit. I'm assuming Oro is short for 'Orrible experience.

After researching lunch locations in Nairobi and finding many positive reviews of Oro I decided to recommend it for my business lunch yesterday. It was the best choice. The location (although probably better set up for an evening out with friends) was great. It was clean and welcoming. the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. The location...

Good for a girlie catch up. Staff very friendly and attentive. Outside area was nice, had lunch inside, a bit cold outside. Prices very reasonable. Inside feels very much like a hotel sadly a bit sterile, but would go again to check it out just for drinks in evening .

From the lighting as you walk in that is draped on the bamboo, to the ambiance in the restaurant and to the food. Job well done! My friend had the oriental pork ribs with chunky chips which were...
