In the heart of Margala hills. Monal offers you a lovely environment to enjoy some lavish food and exquisite moutain ambiance. The place offers live music too in open air seating. The prices are bit expensive. A lovely place for a romantic dinner indeed.

The food is first rate and the portions huge. Service is good as well. The best part is the view of the city from above. The only negative is the trip there. It didn't take so long but the turns almost made me carsick.
