Best service ever! Food is also very delicious. You can ask for more/less spicy meal, according to you preferences. Try Mango Lassi cold drink, highely recommend it. :)

The food was excellent, the service fantastic! We had a dinner with our two small kids and another family with two kids of similar age. We got a separate part of the restaurant all for ourselves! The kids loved the freedom, we loved the relaxed atmosphere!

Been here with a colleague for dinner in March 2016. The restaurant is pleasantly designed, service was kind and attentive, and all portions we have tried were of great quality and wonderful taste. However, portions are relatively small in comparison to other places and the place lacks any "wow" factor to make it stick out in a special way in... More

We had a fantastic dinner at Mehfel. The service is professional and friendly. The food was a great discovery, as a non-vegetarian I definitely discover the wide range of vegetarian dishes Pakistani cuisine had to offer; it is such a pleasure to get several curries and soups all vegetarian and all unique! Don't worry though, the meat dishes are delicious... More

A very cozy place with very good Pakistan food. The owners are super hosts and the time we have sent there was amazing. We tried a lot of different traditional dishes and in the end had to take some food away as we were not able to finish :)

This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Oslo! The food is extremely tasty and rich in flavour - I especially recommend the lentil soup and the daal makhni. The personnel is friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere is authentic and relaxing. When you are there, check out the "wall of fame" with photos of some of the most... More

We had an excellent dinner at Mehfel's! The lentil soup (daal shorba) was amazing, the vegetable pakora they make is delicious, and the palak paneer is just unforgettable! Absolutely recommended, both for vegetarians and meat eaters :) The atmosphere is very nice too, with friendly staff and relaxing music.

When deciding to travel to Oslo I used trip advisor to find vegan/vegetarian friendly restaurants that would also cater to my meat eating boyfriend. Mehfel was highly rated so we thought we would give it a try. The place was easy to find and had welcoming candles outside. Our waitress was so friendly and helpful, she found the time to... More
