    This was our second visit and we enjoyed another wonderful meal - the place was buzzing, the dips were stunning again and I thoroughly enjoyed the grilled Halloumi platter! We'll be back to try more of the wide choice of vegetarian & vegan on offer. Thanks!

    I enjoyed my meal here the food is of a good standard and I would recommend. Good points. Nicely cooked meat not over done Decent house wine Good service Other points. Loud 80s power ballads playing for the duration of my meal, as soon as other diners came in the music switched to a more authentic middle Eastern sound track (have this on all the time as it ads to the experience) I found the cherry meatballs a tad too sweet for my palet. Venue decor lacks atmosphere I would return as the food was nice

    The food is off the hook... If you ever want to make a life changing decision you need to go here! 10/10

    Amazing. Near city center but tucked out of the way. We were the first customers there and had the place to ourselves most of the meal, and had cheerful and attentive service. The dips were sensational (aubergine and walnut, pistachio/feta/yogurt, and more) - we made a whole meal of those plus a couple other apps, and of course, dessert. The kind of meal that makes you want to tell everyone you know and make them jealous they didn’t get to eat with you.

    We'd not eaten Persian before so it was a new experience for us , but this a really great restaurant with superbly prepared dishes and great attentive service. It's not posh, but it environment is clean, smart and stylish with open kitchen etc.. but the food was top notch !

    Lovely food and great service. We had a family reunion here and they catered for both the vegetarians and vegans perfectly. I look forward to another visit.

    We happened upon Pistachio whilst visiting for a concert. We certainly weren't disappointed! From the warm welcome to samples of the sauces before we made our choices, everything was great, a slight mix up in the order didn't cause any major problems and was dealt with efficiently without fuss. The dips were to die for and the mains well cooked and very tasty. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful and would definitely recommend - only downside - it's a 2 hour drive, otherwise this would be a regular haunt!

    It's on a slightly down-trodden road but there are some great pubs nearby (The Fox & Grapes, King Billy) but this was a shining beacon on a damp December night. It has a clean minimalist feel and very attentive service. There are enough tables to generate atmosphere without it being too loud, and the menu is plenty big enough. Maybe the wine list should state the bottle name rather than just the grape variety? Good value though, and some unique food. Had the sharing platter and the food just kept coming! The dips, colourful salads and tender grilled lamb particularly stood out. One of our party had the lamb stew with herbs and dried lime, this was a more acquired taste, I will be back.

    Came to pistachio last night for a reunion with some friends. Really enjoyed the food, we got the mixed dip platter and easily managed to cater for one of the party who cannot eat gluten. Waitress was attentive and described some dishes including the special stew. Great food will be back to taste more.

    We ate here celebrating my grown-up daughters birthday & were particularly impressed with the food. The starters we had (the sharing dips) were so yummy & the bread that went with them was gorgeous & fluffy. Two of us had the mixed grill, which I was told was amazing. I had chicken stew -the Iranian herb style & my husband had lamb done with almonds. All served with rice & all very good. Although we were very full, we did have desserts, too, & had one of each of the 4 on the menu- I had the baklava, which was really good & the others had the 2 types of cheesecakes & the ice-cream, which I’m told were also excellent. The serving staff were friendly and professional. I would really highly recommend this restaurant & we’ll definitely go back.

    Lovely food that really had a lot of flavour. We really enjoyed everything that we had and would return if visiting the city again. It was very busy so I am glad that we booked a table -and would advise phoning rather than email which they did not answer. Why not 5 stars: the wine selection could be improved, and the open cooking area meant my coat smelt of lamb for three days. Nice atmosphere, staff helpful and interesting pictures on the wall.

    I visited here for the first time after the place was recommended to me for a birthday meal with family and I was not disappointed. It was soooo good! The prices were very reasonable for what you got and the portion sizes were very generous, I tried the lamb stew for my main and the flavors were bursting. My partner loved the mixed grill too.Even for a Tuesday all the tables were full and it was great to see the chefs cooking and preparing food while we ate. They even sang happy birthday to my step daughter and gave her a cheesecake dessert! We will most certainly be coming back. Thank you!

    I chose this restaurant purely based on previous Trip Advisor reviews, when looking for somewhere for dinner during a weekend away in Nottingham. I can safely say I was not disappointed! The food was delicious and I definitely agree with a previous reviewer who says the halloumi starter was the best thing they have ever put in their mouth, it was amazing. Lovely atmosphere, great food - only small disappointment was the lack of coffee at the end, but that is forgiven based on the halloumi dish! Not expensive, but excellent.

    We really enjoyed our meal on Saturday before the Ghost gig in Nottingham. I have allergies which I emailed ahead to check that everything would be OK. Rhiannon was absolutely brilliant checking everything would be OK before we arrived. The service was great on the night, my husband had the stew that was the special and said it was really tasty. I had lamb chops that were cooked perfectly. Then the desert was to die for.....pistachio baklava. The bill was very reasonable considering the quality and quantity of the food. We will definitely visit again next time we go to a concert in Nottingham!

    The meal was very nice. The meat was succulent, tasty and the quantities were very generous. The rice served was a little bit bland and there was maybe a lack of sauce. Other than that, attentive service, nice people and joyful experience.
