Our first visit to the restaurant and we were definitely impressed with the food and service. Food was very tasty and fresh, we could taste that the ingredients were of premium quality. We ordered several dips and freshly made pita, lamb chops mousaka, Iskendar kebab,...and Mix Grill. The fluffy pita was served piping hot and went so well with the dips. All the meats were well grilled and flavourful. We enjoyed every single item. Restaurant was packed with diners and had a happy vibe. It had a homey ambience. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys quality unpretentious food. Thank you Pistachio team for the memorable dining experience.More

There are many choices from Mediterranean but just as a name. Taste has nothing to do with the originals. We have tried 3 different dishes, without satisfaction. Just a tourist trap. Price/quality ratio is strongly disturbed. It is clean, neat. Presentation of the food is...in place.More

This is our return visit to the restaurant within a month, and we were not disappointed. We ordered Adana kebab, lamb shank and Moroccan Couscous Royale. Every dish was exceptional and lived up to our expectations. Despite a full house on a weekday evening, we...did not have to wait long for food to be served. The service staff were very efficient and professional. Thank you Pistachio team for another memorable evening. We will definitely be back soon.More

On my first visit when they were at Balestier, the Pistachio mixed grill was wonderful - all the meats were succulent, delicious and well spiced. This time, the lamb chops were overcooked and tasteless, so was the beef. Only the chicken and dipping sauce were...good. Told the staff about it but they only nodded. Truly disappointed.More

The Egyptian Snapper and Tunisien lamb shank were highlights. They even created a custom Massouka dish. Staff was very helpful and service was prompt. Worth a repeat visit!

Good food, good service, good ambiance. Straightforward Middle Eastern food without attempts at going Asian fusion. No MSG, no happy feet, and no heart palpitations. Just good ingredients and well cooked. The owner knows what he's doing. My only gripe was the high price of...some items but you're in Singapore after all.More

We had lunch in Pistachio, and tried their mixed grill (comes with 2 lamb chops and 2 shish kebab skewers. Not a large serving for those used to the US or Middle Eastern servings; order a second main dish if there are 2 or more...people with a healthy appetite at the table!), pistachio salad (similar to fattush salad, served with fried rather than toasted pita strips on it), cheese boregi (think tasting menu portion, quite tasty though) and kibbeh (fried version, nice balance of meat, spices, nuts). Service was excellent (a shout out to Hong and Aisha, our attentive servers), food is tasty, and if you order the halloumi starter, it comes with a "flare" -- the chef runs out of the kitchen to first set the cheese on fire and then douse the flames much to the delight of the Instagram crowd and the amusement of the rest! Will come back and would recommend it.More

Popular restaurant even at early opening times. Should book ahead to get a seating. Order electronically through your hp. Prefer a menu because too small to see from the hp. For young people perhaps it makes no difference. However was able to order their hummus...and baba ghannoush dip with a long pita bread. Nice smooth tasting! The chicken tagine cooked with olives is good. The Tunisian lamb shank and beef Adana was good tasting with their saffron rice and pita bread. Dessert we had their flourless almond and coconut with ice cream. Tasted awesome. Service was good and friendly while price is mid to high. Other dishes looks good, flaming cheese and mix grill.More

Despite identifying numerous food items that can be made suitable for the keto diet, they WERE NOT WILLING to budge an inch to welcome diners with dietary restrictions. First time ever that I heard this from any restaurant worldwide. Definitely the joke of the town.More

Greek/Mediterranean fare. We didn't have many dishes but was somehow still stuffed. Can never resist hummus, and hot pita bread, they are perfect together, always. And the pita here is huge, long and pretty good. We ordered 2 other Chef Recommendations - Mussels in Garlic...Cream sauce and Beef Tenderloin. If these were the best the chef can do, then hmm, can't imagine the rest. Not that these tasted awful but just wasn't wow and certainly not value-for-money, especially the beef, rather pricey for the thin slices, flavourful though. They were surprisingly crowded for a Monday night so reservations recommended.More

So happy to be back dining in my favorite restaurant in Singapore. Food quality is consistently good, so is the service. Chef Khaled and his team use fresh ingredients and prepares food fresh upon order, you can definitely taste the difference. The restaurant is always...packed, testimony to the excellent food and dining experience. Reservation is highly recommended especially for weekends.More

Food was considered tasty until entire table came down with upset stomach later. Informed restaurant via email but they took their time to respond. Was not a nice response from the restaurant manager. Basically said they weren't at fault and we could not prove it...was their food bcos medical tests were not performed on the same day. Also implied we did not know how to appreciate their kind of food. We are a group of well travelled friends and it was not the first time we have had mediteraaean food. However, not wanting to get into a tit for tat situation, i just asked for full refund and ended the correspondence with the restaurant. Something was not right for our table that day, that's all i can say.More

HI Bob, Pistachio is a halal restaurant, hence we do not sell wine. Out of goodwill, we allow guests to bring a bottle of wine (and own glasses) if they are celebrating a special occasion. Strictly no other alcoholic drinks... More
