“A typical original village turned into a tourist attraction, kind of like museum with wonderful restaurants.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

It's amazing to go to saidpur village, seeing a original village face lifted to make an amazing tourist attraction. There were many restaurants. While we waited for our order to be served, we walked to a sikh gurduwara (a temple kind of place) and an other building adjacent to it, turned into a mini museum where pictures showing the history of this place were displayed.

“Lovely place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

A lovely place to visit with friends or family! Particularly in the evening when the lanterns are lit and the place looks magical. Very well maintained and rich in cultural history, it's a great place to go for a nice cup of tea. We visited the Hot Spot which is tucked away on the hill, what a view! Had a great time overall.

“Great, peaceful and rich place in Islamabad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Saidpur village is a great place to visit in Islamabad. It is very well maintained and neat and clean. The restaurants in the village charge very high rates for foods and beverages, more than a five star hotel.

“Historical Tourist Attraction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

A restored old village with masjid, church, hindu temple, museum etc., in the foothills of Margalla. A nice place to go for a walk with beautiful natural surroundings. A village style restaurant and ice cream parlour is also there.

“Lovely setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Saidpur village is a quiet and very inspiring place located just near the central sectors of Islamabad. There are several restaurants there offering a vast variety of delicious food and usually the shisha (even though the police is sometimes enforcing the city ban of public shisha smoking).

Both beautiful, during the day and during the night. Andaz very good food and Despardes for the shisha and also some good food.
