Just okay---nothing much to write about. Used to be very good at a time when others were not there but now a whole lot of restaurants have sprung up and it has lost its charm.

Pappasallis is one of the oldest restaurants in Islamabad and at one point in time was the most happening place in Islamabad with great food and good crowd. Over the yeas, the food has become average regardless of whatever you try. From the pasta to the pizzas, the food is overcooked or undercooked and the interior has lost it cozy and comfy atmosphere and now has the only advantage of being smack in the middle of the largest comemrcial areas of Islamabad. Although they may come up to your food expectation now and then, they lack consistancy and there are many better restaurants in Islamabad which offer much better value for money meal. Frankly, I would only go to Pappasallis if I am invited by someone whom I cannot refuse.

I ate here several times as there are so few places to eat non-spicy food in Islamabad. The best food here was the plainest, mainly because anything with a sauce such as pasta was saturated, often with cream or at least a creamy substance. The fish was quite good but seemed to be the same variety cooked in different ways. If you want more than a few token vegetables it is best to ask for an extra portion and if you don't like them coated in oil or butter, then ask. The same for french fries: the typical portion is small. There is a salad bar but most things seem to be covered in mayonnaise. In the evening during Ramadhan they do a large buffet and all the tables are booked for the time around sunset, so its hard to get a table. But it's probably the best continental style restaurant around Sectors F6 and F7.

Although the food is/may be good but the management and front desk/counter guys are devoid of any basic ethics, mannerism, etiquette and politeness. They need to know that they are just behaving like butchers in fish bazars or individuals from thana culture prevailing in country where they just after the clients but no respect or regards for guests. I still want that some one from the management should have the basic courage to talk to me on the experience i went through and the ordeal i faced simply disgusting. I hope it may come to the notice of the restaurant high ups.
