Try their BBQ Tikka and Poori, its delicious. Its a good place to eat, way too crowded on weekends, not recommended for rainy days as the cleanliness declines significantly, they don't keep it clean.

Most beautiful view of sunrise and sunset on Islamabad. Best open air dinning experience with live music most evenings. 100% recommended to visit if you are lucky enough to visit the Most Beautiful Capital city in the World.

Pir Sohawa is a beautiful scenic spot about an hours drive from Islamabad on the Margallah hills. It is a beautiful and scenic drive and you get excellent view of Islamabad from the hills. You can get food at Pir Sohawa or take you own for a picnic in the pine trees.

I visit Pir Sohawa quite often and it is one of the most visited and my favorite places in Islamabad. It gives you a beautiful view of Islamabad and weather of Pir Sohawa is usually cold even in Summer. Everyone should visit this place, especially after rain.
