Often when am travelling we opt for a South Asian meal to break up the usual travel fare and to get some veggie options. So this trip to Oslo we ended up at Mehfel with some friends and it was way above usual expectations. Probably some of the best South Asian cuisine we have tasted anywhere in the world! The... More

The environment was cool with Indian/Pakistani music. The service was great and the taste of the meals were magical and wonderful. We went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. When they noticed they surprised her with gifts. We will defiantly visit them again if we travel to Oslo.

We were on a 10 day trip of Scandinavia and felt we should eat in an Indian/Pakistani restaurant at least once. We were delighted with our choice. There was a group of Malaysian tourists for whom the chef had prepared a lunch buffet. We were not keen on this and therefore returned at 430 for an evening meal (NOrwegians seem... More

We have been traveling around Norway in an RV and after walking around Oslo looking for a place to eat, we decided on Mehfel. We were welcomed by the lovely hostess and treated to warm lentil soup from the chef--on the house. It was absolutely delicious and made even better by the lime. We ordered, three Pakistani spicy version meals... More

We ate here a few weeks ago as a group of Brits loving in Oslo. We are constantly looking for a decent curry and this was the first time we had tried Mehfel. I had the starter of veh pakora followed by murgh tikka. Both were very good. I asked for spicy and it was just that, not the usual,... More

Oslo is full of main stream restaurants that will serve you the same dish from the same menu, at least it can feel like it sometimes. When you visit Mehfel, it is like traveling to a different country. The whole atmosphere invites you to drift away like culinary getaway. The service is top notch, going for a cosy, homeish feel,...
