So I was at The Monal Restaurant (Pir Sohawa) last night with the family. And I found the food there to be incredibly mediocre! The only reason one should visit that place is for the view, which was quite spectacular I must admit.

Which restaurant here in Islamabad, has the best shawarma? Would prefer if they deliver too.
Also the best pizza here in islamabad.

Had pizza hut too many times, so I'm tired of it.

14 street, and new yorkers are crap. I guess i prefer deep pan pizza style, that pizza hut offers.

Any suggestions?

had a hi-tea buffet at salt n pepper village (karachi), its very well decorated buffet restaurant in local sindhi artistic representation and is right at the arrival point of clifton beach, very peaceful and most of all the ultimate sunset viewing experience while having the hi tea buffet was even on par of those super highway restaurants at night. price was 900/head for hi-tea and i think 1200 for lunch/dinner but they give upto 20% discount once you get free registration done which takes time...the variety/quality/taste was MashaaAllah great, i recommend to replace your lunch for a hi tea there.

Madina Resturant 2 before toll plaza there balochi tikka karachi is famous. And its quite reasonable as well. Quantity is full 1kg in 1kg karahi

Koila karahi after toll plaza there koila karahi is famous, and taste is very good too. Don't go to al habib or sajjad not worth it.

The orignal madina resturant is after toll plaza but its too far away almost 15-25min drive, at madina 2 just go to their kitchen and their he will weight the chicken infront of you and then he cut it into pieces, its better if you wash the chicken yourself.

Travern Grill
Tried Travern Grill during Ramadan.
I didnt go for the iftar buffer, but i went there for dinner around 10 pm.

Food quality and quantity was good. I ordered the Moroccon Chicken steak. It was spicy and juicy, liked it very much.
Prices are bit high though, chicken steaks vary from 820 to 890 approx. Quantity was two pieces of chicken steaks (quantity is almost similar in all restaurants that serve steaks)
I might try again cause of the high cost.
P.S their burgers are huge and are well priced around PKR 550 approx. Might give them a try once
TIP: Dont buy the drinks. they start from PKR: 300/-

Sizzlers
I also tried Sizzlers before Ramadan and their menu is almost very identical to the rosters. Except only they are quite cheaper as compared to other restaurants.
Chicken steaks starts from 685~720 approx as far as i remember. The taste was good as well and quantity is almost similar to travern grill.
In appetizers i ordered mozarella sticks. there were 4 of them and tasted quite good. Although these were expensive and fills your stomach making it hard to finish the main course.
Will definitely try it again
Tip: Dont get the drinks or starters, they are expensive

Nandos
Tried their Special Chicken espetada and their legendary peri peri chicken
Highly overpriced food. A quarter chicken is never sufficient for a single person. I ordered only half chicken for myself (Without sidelines) .
Sidelines are hell more expensive and are not worth it.
Taste wise, both the peri peri chicken and special chicken espetada tasted almost same. Peri peri chicken is quite over rated and over priced as well.
Nothing special in taste at Nandos.
Will not go again.
TIP: its worth a try. dont get the sidelines or drinks. Just half chicken is enough for a person.

Ramada
Tried their iftar dinner buffet-2016 on the 6th day of Ramadan. Price wise it was expensive for an individual (1800~1900/head). However, considering its a 4 star hotel. The prices are good.
Buffet is amazing.
Iftar had rolls, samosas, pizzas, friend sand wiches and other conventional items of iftar
Dinner had too many BBQ options. Fried fish was amazing, deserts were just OK. Fried Icecream was excellent
For Buffet lovers, Yes its a recommended place
TIP: Eat low on iftari and high on dinner :)

Marriot
Was invited as a guest to Nadia's in Marriot for iftar dinner buffer.
Dont know the price as i was a guest there.
Quality was good. But menu was very limited. Quite few options to choose from. BBQ dishes were limited as well.
Will not visit again.
Very few options considering its a buffet of 4 star hotel
TIP: Just dont go there

Kolachi
We organized our company iftar dinner buffet there for approx 300 persons. Price is good (~1800/person)
Iftar was great ( exceptional fried fish and fried zinger chicken and saucy wings)
Dinner was even better. Exceptional taste of paneer chicken, BBQ items and everything was amazing.
Deserts were quite limited. However, the dinner gets offset by the good dinner and iftar items
TIP: Must try once, if you can go there and pay that much

When to sizzlers as well. As a burger lover, ordered a steak burger. The burger was HUGE and DELICIOUS. Will recommend it. The menu falls in the same category as roasters/arizona grill. Will go there again.
