“A Majestic & Charming View”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Monal due to its natural location provides an awesome atmosphere for a delicious dinner. The soothing lights from the capital are more than enough to soothe the atmosphere. Food & service however needs definite improvement to match the quality of the scene. Recommended as a must go / see spot whenever visiting Islamabad / Rawalpindi.

“Must visit place in Islamabad!!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

The food and ambience is amazing! Must visit for all Islamabad travelers. Its a 30 min drive uphill, and definitely worth it. I wasn;t able to make it for sunset but I'm sure it'll be a worthwhile visit.
Had the grill platter and it was YUM! Make sure you place yourself near the cliff to get a nice view.

“Fantastic view, delicious food, top quality service.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

The place I want to visit every week, but unfortunately can't as I am 6000 km away. If you are visiting Islamabad do go for a dinner. In fact not only to eat, but eat in a beautiful atmosphere with live music and fantastic view. There is no negative points in the restaurant you only need a good vehicle and an experienced driver to get you there. Do not go by local taxi as they are not strong enough to be driven there.
The place is much more nicer than it looks in the photos.
The food is far more tasty as people have described.
The service is same as you expect from a 5* restaurant.
Price wise is a little bit expensive for the country, but worth more than that.
