How one Govt Dept's abbrev. is ORO
I have been to 2/F's Thai Thai Grill before, saw this and wanted to try.
It has a Jap style bar table at the entrance but with an American style interior deco.
Set lunch $88 each。http://oro18.hk/menu/1003_22-27-ChefSetlunch-88.pdf
I planned to have snapper with udon，but then saw this combo which got a lot of things to try so decided on combo.
Soup: tomato clam chowder - the colour looked like lobster soup
(though the clam is a bit "sang")
Salad: German salad with bacon crisp
Combo dish: Roasted prawn with fish roll, mussels kilpatrick, Japanese cheese roll stick.
Main course: braised beef with red wine sauce, ratatouille with spaghetti saute，勁淋。
Dessert: mango and sago pudding (quite different from what you get outside)
Coffee: Arabica - very smooth taste.
I'd say a value for money deal here.

Relatively okay lunch Sep 21, 2009
Nothing too particular. Although the menu looks like it has a LOT of dishes, but they are not delicious.
Each dish is okay, not particularly delicious but not particularly not delicious. The food is just okay.
If I have to choose, the dessert is actually the best. The lemon tart tasted really lemony.

A very very disappointing dinner Sep 10, 2009
I was looking forward to a wonderful gathering with a whole group of friends and the compliments of a luscious seafood meal (they had a one night seafood festival promotion)....but i was SHOCKED at the quality of the food..
even my HIGHSCHOOL canteen can produce better quality...
the Oysters weren't fresh, the cooked Clams with cheese and bacon LOOKED GOOD but when I took a bite, I found that the clam was dirty underneath the layer of cheese.
The so-called buffet was nothing but a scatter of "KAU KAU KEI KEI" cooked food
Only the Ox tongue and the lamb cutlet were ok...everything else was not so great
the mini mini mini dessert bar was set aside on a small small table, and the waiter took out desserts on mini trays... one tray at a time... there wasn't even enough to go around..
ONE WORD - DISAPPOINTMENT
luckily I had my bunch of good friends there so the ambience balanced out my mood, otherwise, my whole night would have been wrecked!

expensive team lunch Mar 18, 2008
Farewell lunch for a colleague, a group of 17 occupied 2 long tables in the main dining area. The set lunches were normally $140 each, including a salad, the soup, the rolls, a slice of quiche, the main entrée (which I ordered sirloin with extra $50, while others have the normal roast piglet or truffle linguine), a slice of cake and coffee.
The salad was not surprising and I should have opt for the vege salad instead of the chicken salad really. The soup was a little too spicy and normal too, the roll was a little warm so that’s good with butter, the quiche was nice I’d say but the sauce doesn’t really match. The sirloin I had was not exactly nice, the fat could be grilled a little more and it doesn’t smell nice either (the other guests’normal steaks seems to smell better). The cake was made out of horlick which is interesting but not the satisfying type of cake. The strawberry tea they recommended was awful, I should have asked for a coffee really.
The place was adequately decorated but as an upstair restaurant in Central, there are other better options I would say.
Spending per head: Approximately HKD185
