Rooftop Monal commands sweeping views of Lahore, all the while offering discerning guests a lengthy menu of Pakistani and Continental dishes. The daily dinner buffet (6.45-11pm) is a real hit, followed closely by Sunday brunch (10.30am-2pm) and "high tea" on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons.


The province of Punjab is known for its especially abundant culinary offerings, and Lahore in particular is heralded as a hot spot for gastronomy. Some of the dishes you'll certainly encounter on restaurant menus include all manner of meat grills and kebabs, spicy chicken karahi and Lahori, along with a variety of further chicken dishes, and deep-fried goodies sold off street sides. To acquaint yourself with local dining culture, begin at the new Food Street nearby the Lahore Fort, eventually working your way down to Anarkali Bazaar.
