This is one restaurant where the food is cooked with sincerity and passion, definitely a rare gem in Singapore. I ordered the Lamb Chops with Moussaka and the Sultan's Delight as my family loves lamb dishes, and both were AWESOME! We could taste the freshness...and authentic flavours in every mouthful. Food was packed with care for delivery and they were still warm upon arrival as we live nearby. It's definitely worth paying for such premium quality. We have dined in the restaurant before the lockdown, the food quality is consistent. The passion and sincerity of the food is a reflection of Chef Khaled who is a truly humble man. I highly recommend Pistachio, you get the quality that you pay for.More

We came for dinner earlier tonight and the food was absolutely disappointing. The most disappointing was the couscous. For someone who has had couscous in the middle east, the couscous was a shame. It was tasteless and the broth that was given on the side...tasted like couscous cooking water, it was tasteless. There was no flavour whatsoever, we had added on harissa, and it was the most confusing harissa i hv ever had. It tasted like i was eating at ananda bhavan. The harissa was not a middle eastern harissa at all but tasted like a south indian pickled mango achar. It was a very sad experience. The borek tasted like spinach filled popiahs. The only thing edible was the beef adana and the kibbeh. But that too was not fantastic, it was dry but ate it nonetheless as we were starving. Please improve in your food quality, I wonder how you can pass off as a middle eastern Restaurant. It was like an indian fusion Restaurant that ran out of spices.More

One of the best middle eastern cuisines we've tried. Their hummus was very smooth, delicious and authentic. The taste wasn't overpowering and went really well with the pita bread. If you love pizza, you must try the Turkish Pide. The beef is oozing with flavour,...it was just so good. Moroccan Couscous Royale was our favourite dish of the night. The lamb was amazingly tender and not gamey. The meat was of a premium cut, very worth the price. Chef Khaled came out to greet us and made us feel welcomed. Very friendly and humble. We came here after reading reviews and it didn't disappoint. Great experience, hope to come back again!More

i used to enjoy dining at their cosy outlet in Zhongshan Mall when it was considered as a hidden gem. However this Orchard outlet is bigger and probably more expensive. It is still as popular and I realised that reservation is necessary. We went at...11.30 am without reservation and fortunately were offered a table till 12.30 pm. We had the vegetarian pide, falafel and hummus. The falafel comes with a small bowl of hummus too. Enjoyable meal.More

Best Middle Eastern cuisine in Singapore. Very proud to have the Egyptian delicacies in the heart of Orchard Rd. The Outlet is well decorated with a nice Egyptian Heliography mural wall. The food quality is simply amazing. We had the Iskandarani Kebabs, Cheese Pita breads,...Pistachio salad, Hummus and Tomato Soup. We enjoyed every bit of it and truly enjoyed the ambiance. There was a very omnipotent Vibe in the air which made the place so lively. Well done to Chef Khaled, Madam Agnes and the A-Team!More

Saying Pistachio Grill is one my most favourite restaurants (even maybe the most) in the whole world is not an exaggeration. My wife and I always enjoy being welcomed by the hospitality of Chef Khaled and in such a warm atmosphere we can always enjoy...their variety of Mediterranean cuisines, which are both uniquely yummy and healthy (created by healthy natural ingredients with utmost care). Truly a warmth to our stomachs and hearts (try one of their desserts, Um Ali, and you'll understand what I mean).More

We decided to visit the restaurant for lunch while at Orchard and were delighted with the selection. A wide variety of scrumptious mid eastern cuisine well made and served with a smile! What more can one ask for! No frowns or rushed staff - everyone...was very friendly and promised to find us seats even without a reservation. Khalid is an excellent cook and a lovely owner and stopped by to chat when he learnt I am gluten free. He dished up a yummy dessert! To be fair, do let him know in advance when you plan to visit so he has some time to organise the special ingredients! Lots of space and a nice buzz to the place! Do stop by for a meal if you are in the area. I am certainly eating here with my family next time. A double thumbs up!!!More

I'm literally full of gratitude. Brought my beloved mother and sister there for an impromptu lunch as I was stressed with work and missed them. Chef Khaled totally did not disappoint. The food is authentic and freshly made, but what I love was the conversation...we had with the Chef. He has immense passion with his craft and hospitality. We are left happy and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. Will definitely come back for more memorable occasions. We tried the falafel, Moroccan couscous,Kunefeh, Bedouin Delight, Moroccan mint tea, Arabic Briyani Rice, Baba Ganoush, Hummus Kawerma, Lebanese Zater Bread and Garlic Cheese Peta bread. Would love to try the Chef's Specials in the next visit.More

Enjoyed my time! The food was very satisfying, the ambience was of high quality and very relaxing. The service was also very quick, staff were very attentive and even the owner attended to us! Chef Khaled, the owner and chef of the restaurant, was very...friendly, humble and even approached us to ensure our order’s been well taken care of. I ordered for my mum and the Prawn Singray and added on briyani as a side and the chef also kindly arranged to serve a complimentary mini cake made out of dates (I had earlier requested for this when I made the reservation). I highly recommend this restaurant! Looking forward to coming back!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
