Halal Pakistani Food in Oslo

During my stay in Oslo I tried this restaurant and they guided me what to order. Also, suggested that I should try a little bit of different things. I had ordered Karachi which tasted like Qorma but it wasn't too bad. Lentil soup was great. Eating out in Oslo is expensive so is this restaurant.

Some friends and I decided to try out this restaurant that was recommended to us. The food was oily and tasted only of spices. The visit was a really disappointment.

We fancied some curry so we decided to try Mehfel due to its high rankings on Tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed at all. The food was delicious and the service we got was really great - the staff were friendly and we even got a complimentary starter of lentil soup, which was very tasty. The only thing that surprised us was... 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
