Though we had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated, it was completely worth the wait! You would be getting an awesome view of the picturesque city of Islamabad while you wait for your food. The staff was very helpful, cooeperative and efficient given the high demand and influx of people. Great for any occasion and great for any... More

Food taste is not as good as it should be but if you keep visiting, you will certainly find some good dishes as their menu is quite large and have a huge variety to select from. Kids just love their hot brownie with ice cream on top serve in a hot plate. I personally prefer their desert only, with tea.

Amazing place. Been quite a few times. Whether it be to hang out with friends, a family day/evening out or a romantic meal for two- this place will not disappoint. Breathtaking views, good atmosphere, superb food and some great live music to top it off. Nobody should go to Islamabad and not visit this place!!

And one of the best in Pakistan, this is a huge restaurant with great view of Islamabad and great food. Ambiance and locality is great. Service is Ok. BBQ items are good - we tried the platter. Complimentary Kulfi was good too and our daughter got cotton candy. Lively place. Visited in May 2015.

The restaurant is located at the top of the hill from where the city of Islamabad is completely visible. A narrow road will lead you to the restaurant. The seating arrangement consists of different sets of dinning tables arranged in steps. Dinner under the sky is recommended. Sheltered dinning hall is also available, but visitors do not prefer it, except... More

Visited Monal this February. The drive to the restaurant was worth the view. Food was exceptionally good with the best value for money. Friendly staff. Variety of dishes to choose from was vast. The orange juice was 100% pure and fresh hence i ended up ordering it thrice. Must visit place in Islambad!
