Ah what a place for some richly delicate Middle Eastern food. Food here is authentic and delicious. We tried the lamb shank...so good! The gravy was incredible. The kebabs come hanging and swinging from a rail. They are nicely done and delicate in flavors. Devoured it all, absolutely delicious!!

I was hesitant about pistachio because Middle Eastern was never my favorite. Nevertheless this restaurant turns out to be a pleasant surprise. It is situated within Wheelock Place at level two. The interior and the decorations are distinctively middle eastern. The menu is broad and wide. We had a group of 8 and we ordered a ton of food. I have forgotten the exact names of the dishes. However the garlic cheese pitta bread is a winner. The starter dish with a thin beef patty on a pitta bread is another winner. We ordered the fried cheese and this is truly a sight to behold. The owner grace every guest with his presence by lighting the fire to ignite the flame. The meats are well flavored and tender. The beef and the chicken dishes are awesome. I also had the Turkish coffee and the richness of this coffee tickle my palettes and smarted in my nose. The dessert is the ubiquitous favor Kunafi. This dish is done differently. It came with ice cream instead of milk. Nevertheless the taste is good and the texture is delicately infused with some spicy honeyed taste. Overall experience is good but the customer service seems to be a bit slack. Maybe it is due to the manpower crunch. Nevertheless go soon because they may be close a short renovation.

First time. Great service. Good food, although a few were not to my personal liking. Prawn and lamb chops somehow too dry. Bread and desserts were fabulous. Very crowded. Really popular restaurant.

This small restaurant was busy on a Friday night. The crowd was also like due to the first days of the easing of the Pandey restrictions. They have interesting choices and we picked a range of options. I thought the food might be light but we were all full by the end of the meal. Service was great. We had a memorable dinner.

Tasty Mediterranean food but a little pricey. We ordered the humus and pita (warm and crispy, delicious), tabouleh, Angus beef rib (nice and tender) and mixed platter for 4 to share. If you are after the baby lamb or tomahawk beef steak, they have to be ordered in advance -3 days for the lamb.

We had the sultan's delight and mussels with garlic cream and cheese toast. The sultan's delight is really enjoyable. We could taste the smokiness from the eggplant puree and the lamb stew is really tender with tomato based sauce. It's tangy and smoky with some crunchiness from the pine nuts. Really enjoyable. But the mussel is pretty standard. It didn't taste really fresh but they're quite generous with the amount. The garlic cheese sauce is ok only. Service was good and attentive.

First time at this restaurant, and I can say the dining experience was great. Food is great and the serving is not bad as well. I can only say good things about the service of the Staffs. The place is easy to find and the ambience is something to remember.

Second time in Pistachio and ordered the same beef short ribs and Chicken Kebab as last time. Really good, tender and flavourful. Lady staff is really nice and attentive! Thank you for the birthday cake for our friend! It’s a really nice gesture given that we didn’t have to request for it. The only downside is the place is really packed (which is probably an indication that the food is great) and the noise level was quite high (we couldn’t hear each other much)

We enjoyed our dinner tonight at Pistachio. The quality of food and service was very good. Food was well prepared and delicious. We ordered 2 portion of beef ribs with Briyani rice and 2 portion of Shish Taouh and 4 freshly baked pitas! Highly recommended to order these for sharing. Excellent!

Really delicious meal! We ordered the: - pistachio salad: really deliciously creamy sauce. The vegetables were fresh and the crunchy bits (not sure what it was) complemented the salad well - pita bread & hummus: it was served nice and hot. The bread was crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. It was very fragrant as well. The hummus was delicious too. The taste and texture were perfect. - pistachio mixed grill: the presentation was great! The staff will help to remove the meats off the skewers so don’t worry 😉 the meats were all tender, but I particularly liked the lamb chop and chicken. The meats were tender and juicy, and the marination was great. However the beef became a bit dry after it cooled down (but kudos to the staff who encouraged us to eat the beef first). The sauce served with the meats was extremely delicious. It was slightly sour but went very very well with the meats! Definitely will be back to this restaurant!

I came to Singapore few weeks ago and was looking for Mediterranean restaurants. I stumbled upon this gorgeous place 5 minutes away from my hotel. I tried Kebabs on day one and man it was delicious. Atmosphere is great and all servers are friendly, specially three girls Urmi, Wendy and Fina are super nice, they make sure to get you a table quickly, take the order in timely manner and also make valuable suggestions on the menu. They always keep checking if everything is fine and customers are enjoying food. I loved the desert suggestion after eating my dinner. After first day I have been to this place 7-6 times and was always greeted with same service. I highly recommend this restaurant and will go again before I leave Singapore for USA.

Visited for my birthday meal with my family as I was craving some Mediterranean food and this place had great reviews. However, the whole experience ended up kinda disappointing - as I had high expectations too on my first visit. Service: - It’s a restaurant but I felt like there was not much service per say. - It’s a pretty high price point but they don’t serve complimentary water (charged at $3 a pot of hot water, or $11 for Evian water only) - Ordering isn’t as fuss free as they try to make it. Online ordering only from mobile app, with just one physical menu at the door. Asked for any extra copies for easier viewing but none available. You also have to pay upfront in mobile order. - Feels like I visited a restaurant but received fast food style service. Atmosphere: - Overall atmosphere is okay. Like a typical restaurant Food: - Average, I’ve had much better at other places for a similar price point. - Pita bread, spreads and kebab grills were okay. - Saffron rice & Briyani rice were disappointing. They use basmati rice which gave a nice texture. However, flavour is so subtle that I could barely taste the difference between the 2. Summary: Would I return? Definitely not! For the price point, the food and service didn’t live up to expectations for a highly rated restaurant. Will continue on my hunt for yummy Mediterranean food!

Went there during lunch. Place was almost packed. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was fresh and very tasty. Grilling was perfect, charred yet juicy. Will be back again.

Came here after hearing good things, luckily can walk in but highly recommend to book ahead of time. Food portion is good but staff is a little less attentive and also service is very very slow so don't show up too hungry. But I just say food is worth waiting for, had the chicken + sultan delight or something which was amazing. Fluffy rice, good nan!

Visited on a Thu night, it's superb crowded and busy in the restaurant. 3 dishes for 2 people, very filling. Overall the food is pretty decent and the price point is on the higher side.

Came for an occasion dinner as I've heard good things about it. TLDR: I would come back for specific dishes but moderate my expectations on service. Beef ribs: absolute must-order! Fall off the bone tender, and very tasty. Hummus: I can make better hummus. Not enough acid to cut through the heavy chick pea taste. Baba ghanoush: Good to order to add variety to your meal. Zaatar bread: must-try especially if you haven't tried Lebanese bread Garlic pita bread: good pairing with baba ghanoush or to eat on its own Falafel: Skip this completely! It was dry and hard, not to mention, tasteless. Mixed platter: lamb chops were good but sausage was too salty. Cous cous was passable. Service is decent although staff wasn't very attentive. Diners scan a QR code to order so service is impersonal and the onus is not on staff to ensure they got your order right, or to check if you have allergies or whether you are having a good time. Don't expect much service here. Atmosphere is quite decent esp if you have a big group and want a full-on fire display when you order certain dishes. But if you're on the receiving end trying to have decent conversation amidst the ruckus of the other tables, go somewhere else.

OK v decent place for Mediterranean food. Had enjoyed the family run since their Zhong Shan time. Lamb was especially good! This round tried the mix skewer and Grilled King prawns! For the mixed grill preferred the lamb and chicken. Prawns were lovely. But got a little cold bybtye time we ate the last piece. Place was v crowded and goodbye came early at 6 plus. Decent seating places including a set aside section for 10 pax over..

I thoroughly enjoyed the delightful blend of Turkish and Arabic cuisine at the restaurant. The service from the young man's waiter was exceptional, always pleasant and smiling. While most of the experience was positive, there was a slight inconsistency in the service from one of the waitress girls, who seemed less welcoming. On another note, I observed that the staffing level, with only three waiters and one at the door, might need consideration. There were instances when my calls went unanswered, possibly due to the limited staff availability. Despite these minor points, the delicious food certainly stood out and made the overall dining experience enjoyable.

My wife and I decided to check out Pistachio, serving wholesome Middle Eastern cuisine, for our Valentine’s Day lunch. We started with a lovely Garlic Cheese Pita bread and Hummus. For mains, we had the delectable Red Snapper Marrakech and Shish Taouk (Chicken), both imbued with intense, rich flavours. To wrap up the meal, we had Um Ali, an interesting warm pudding, with a Turkish coffee and an aromatic Egyptian mint black tea. Apart from the lovely food, despite the busy lunch crowd, the service team was simply wonderful and attentive to our needs. Special thanks to Chef Khaled, for making our afternoon a memorable one. We would also like to compliment the crew including Wendy and Fina, who took very good care of us. We look forward to returning again to savour the rest of Pistachio’s extensive menu.

I came with high hopes to enjoy a good meal of middle eastern food but ended up wasn’t that impressed. This restaurant is in a shopping mall on second floor. Tables filled up quickly during a weekday evening for dinner. Recommended to reserve a table in advance if you are going. Honestly it’s a mixture of middle eastern and those popular Italian dishes like pasta and pizza. We had bread, hummus, lamb stew, pizza, falafel, etc. except for the bread and hummus, the rest of the dishes were really average. There is no signature dish nor any of those dishes we ordered stood out. Kitchen closed at 9.30pm and they forgot to key in our last order so one of our friend went hungry. We also had to remind them more than once to bring us our drink order. So not too impressed at all.

As I have been to the Middle East before, I can say the food here is authentic. The hummus was silky smooth. The mussels was creamy and went well with the garlic breads. The best one was the mixed grilled meat skewers, very juicy and tender. Overall a nice place for a taste of the Mediterranean.

Overall, a bit disappointing. Food was just alright but definitely not to the standard you’d expect for the price paid. Moussaka was nice but the lamb was overdone in my opinion. I’m sure most meat lovers will agree. Seasoning and sauces were good though, they complimented the lamb without overpowering it. Wine tasted like the bottle had been open for some time. But worst of all, the knife provided looked the part but was just too dull to do the job well, especially since the meat was a bit on the firm side. Service was mediocre. Functional but lacking the appropriate attitude and demeanour. Just the tiny details you’d expect a more upscale restaurant to not neglect.

Lamb chops were too dry. Gave feedback to the waitress who said she will let the kitchen know. But nobody came back to us - as an up class restaurant in an upscale mall you would expect service to be better than what we experienced. The owner saw us leaving and didn’t bother to ask more about our feedback. This is quite disappointing for a $100-per couple restaurant.

came here for a team dinner. The food portions are huge and the meat are moist and tender. can taste the smoky seasoning. The waitress is friendly. It’s a long wait for the food though if u come during dinner time and noisy atmosphere.

Food is really good. Prob one of the best, if not the best Mediterranean Restaurant in Singapore. We had the black mussel with garlic cream, braised lamb shank and Red Snapper Marrakech. All are nice and very delicious.

We had the meat platter. The beef kebabs was tender, moist and the meats were well seasoned. The pita bread was soft and freshly baked and went well with the hummus. The service was excellent too

Third time at the restaurant; food quality is excellent as usual. Pita bread + hummus is great! The tabbouleh is refreshing when eaten in between mouthfuls of meat. The meat dishes are always done very nicely, flavored through and through without being tough. Will definitely be back!

I just had some zatar bread and two dips. The ambience and service is very nice! The food was good, but nothing special. Hummus had a paste-y texture that I did not prefer and the the mohamarra was decent. Price may not be the best value. Tea was nice and the other main items look grand, so perhaps I will return to try more.

Delicious food with good portions suitable for sharing. We ordered a garlic pita with hummus and a sharing platter for 2 and everything was good. Service was very attentive too. Enjoyed our time here!
