“Very good for special events”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is the second time I have taken my wife to this restaurant. The first time was last year during valentine's day. The service is 1st class, the place is very quiet and safe.
My wife is someone who is very particular and she does not go back to a place which is not really top class. This one she can go back even a 3rd time.

We have gone to several restaurants in Nairobi and outside Kenya, and I would recommend this one.
Avoid when its crowded like end month on Fridays since its within a very exclusive area and the parking is limited.

“Great Ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

One thing ORO gets right, is ambience. Perfect for after work or pre-party drinks or late dinner with mates. Definitely becoming a regular.

“Quite something”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

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.

“Long wait, wrong order average food ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

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 somewhat stale and the music was a bit odd (noisy) for a lounge. We went to the bar and greeted the staff but were not advised where to sit. After a 15 min wait we had to look for a waiter to be given the menu. The food came after around 45 min. Unfortunately the waiter got the order wrong but after the long wait we decided to have what was served. The pork was definitely not bad, but the chicken was dry. In all fairness the restaurant offered free ice cream for messing up the order.
We wouldn't go back to eat, but not a bad place for a pre-party drink. Better training of the staff probably warranted.

“Warm ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

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!
