Our Story

Nora Restaurant and Bar, opened in the summer of 2012, is the third restaurant by restaurateur and chef Matt Pikar. Matt began his culinary career in Washington, D.C. in 2001 when he opened Afghan Grill. His clientele included many senators, congressmen and diplomats.

After rave reviews and success in D.C., Matt moved to Texas in 2007 and opened the well regarded Afghan Grill in North Dallas. Determined to make Afghan food better known, he decided to open a new venture closer to Dallas proper.

Nora's namesake, Nora Pikar was just three months old when construction of the restaurant began. She and her older sister Stella were along every step of the way from construction to decoration and opening. The goal of Nora Restaurant and Bar is to introduce Greenville Avenue to a type of food it has yet to experience. With our friendly service and atmosphere, we strive to be an exotic spot that feels like home.

About Our Food

Afghan cuisine consists of a rich mix of spices and tastes. Some of the ingredients you'll find at Nora include yogurt, garlic, onions, spring onions, and tomatoes as well as mint, saffron, cilantro and cardamom. Looking to try something different? You can't go wrong with satiating dishes like Mantoo, Sabzi or Qabili Palao. In addition to our kabobs which are great for meat lovers, many of our dishes can be prepared vegetarian or gluten free.

Our signature cocktails with Afghan influenced ingredients such as pomegranate juice, rosewater, cardamom and cucumber make for unique and refreshing libations.
