I didn't like going to Monal as it charges a lot for food that doesn't taste out of the ordinary. I definitely don't recommend it.

After a twisty drive up which seems to never end, the view alone was worth it. Can be cool in the evening so take a jacket in case. I've had better food in smaller restaurants in Islamabad but this was good enough and the atmosphere...More

I had been there couple of times, especially for Dinner. Amazing scenery, utter fresh weather & delicious food makes everything out of the box. However, their rates are bit high.

The establishment is nestled in the Margalla Hills and serves a variety of different cuisines. The food is excellent and the view of the city from the restaurant is spectacular.
