The ‘Monal’ has given a new meaning to Pir Suhawa which has always been a 30 minute drive to instant escapism. The place totally reminds me of some ruling emperor watching over his empire down below. It has this unique infrastructure, sort of contoured along the lines of the hill it stands on. The charm of the place is to dine under the starry/sunny sky with the strong wind in your face but just in case there’s an indoor dining hall at the ready.
The menu offers all types, desi, Oriental, Continental, Italian but desi and barbeque is what its famous for. Another fact, no matter what you order you’ll always snack on the cheese nan first.
Picture this: you’re standing at the entrance, late in the evening, in the ambience of oil lamps from surrounding handicraft stalls, the barbeque grill acting as an aromatic smoke machine and of course, live music; all the classics you can imagine. Bag a table next to the railing and get such a breathtaking view of the city that you can’t steal your eyes away.
Even with a full house the place has this peaceful romantic quality to it, you go in daze without realizing. Magical.
