Reviewed March 30, 2013

They have bad chefs, not good food. Onion soup was very bad, pizza is tasteless and spagetti is bad bad taste. But theres good mood.

“Great for a quick inexpensive meal”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Maybe not the best Restaurant in Town but for quality of food compared to price it is hard to beat.
Eat here at least once a week as it is my local. Good food at very reasonable prices - service good.
Good Beef or Chicken Curry and Pork Chops in Mustard Sauce are among my favourites.
Not Tamarind/La Marina or Yuls but the main courses are cheaper than the starters at the others.
Give it a go you won't be disappointed.
Friday night is half price Pizza Night.

“Good wholesome inexpensive food”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

I've eaten at Pistachio a couple of times recently, it serves decent portions of good simple food at very inexpensive prices. The Quattro Stagione was very filling for around 300/-, the base was a little thick for my taste and I'm used to the four seasons being laid out as four quarters rather than mixed up, but it was tasty and who can complain at that price?

On my second visit I had the beef curry with vegetable pilau. a decent portion, tender beef and a spicy rather than hot sauce, very tasty and again very inexpensive.

The restaurant is in a tree sheltered courtyard flanked by buildings on two sides and trees on the other. Some tables are in the open, some under makuti roofs.
