Yes and that room of quality doesn't end. Monali is so far the best place to dine in all over Pakistan. From Food Quality to mesmerising view of capital. It's awesome!!! From starter of Cheese Nan to Bar BQue platter and karahi it's of quality standards.

View of restaurant is breathtaking but food with really bad taste. Mutton kabab and tikka are made of beef with smell and terrible taste. Staff is rude at their level best and menu is over priced
