We had a number of dishes selected by the charming waitress offering us a wide array of flavours and it brought back memories of meals shared with Pakistani friends. Mehfel is worth a visit even if you have never been to Pakistan before, but who knows, maybe you will want to go there after as well.

Have came here three times now for a meal with my colleague and each time the food and service has been excellent. I can't say anything bad about it at all. I'm surprised it's not busier but then we've been coming here a bit later at 19:00 or even 22:00. Each time we're greeted with a smile and the waitress... More

We had vegetarian dishes (2 soups as a starter and two main courses), all was very nice and perfectly spicy for our taste. The nan bread was rather average though, but all in all an enjoyable meal!

This was probably our best dining experience we had in Scandinavian Countries. Food was definitely good, but smiling service made all the difference. Highly recommended place for Indian/Pakistani food. By the time we reached restaurant it was almost closing time, but they served with smile.

The food was very good, best "Indian" food I've had in Oslo. The service was excellent, and they had no problem adapting the food to my lactose and gluten intolerance. They also had a Pakistani beer, which my college thought was very good. And they had different kinds of sauces you could choose, depending on how hot/spicy you like your... More

It is always an extremely welcome visit to this restaurant in heart of Oslo. The atmosphere, the service and most of all food is of exceptionally good quality. You never feel left alone. One gets friendly and professional help to make choices according to the occasion or appetite. Even one, who is not aware of Pakistani or Indian kitchen, is... More

We came here for a relatively early dinner so it was quite quiet and therefore lacking a bit of atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and the dinner came with a complimentary soup! The food was good and the menu offered various traditional Pakistani options which were interesting.
