Taken to the Monal Restaurant overlooking Islamabad one Thursday evening. The drive up to the restaurant was amazing and the view of Islamabad by night from the terrace was quite stunning. Food was OK too. I enjoyed a Pakastani plateau which gave me a selection of chicken and curries. Go in a group, it's much more fun.

Perhaps the best environment and best view a hotel in Islamabad could have. Temperature is about 5 degrees lower than the Islamabad ground level.Food is however average.Don't ask for Afghani /Kabuli as they don't have any concept of that. Get local foods.Great service though.

The restaurant is located on high hills where the city is visible at day time and city lights are visible at night time. The restaurant offers good variety of food specially the traditional food.

Easy to go. Beautiful sights from amazing heights. Not much to do other than to walk around at top and having good meal.

Its the best in Islamabad though, the view is beautiful, 20km up in the mountains, this is a remarkable place to have a fine dinner/lunch with family or friends. Must checkout Daman-e-Koh and the Zoo too.
