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

I've been to this restaurant a few times before with friends and family. Each time was a wonderful experience! This is a higher-end, sit-down restaurant (with clean table clothes and cloth napkins) in the heart of the city, where diners ranged from casually (but cleanly) dressed to a group or two celebrating a special event (even wearing what appeared to...

Excellent all over. Most delicious dishes of great variety suited to every taste. The service is outstanding with the personal touch of the owner. Deserts are colorful and delicate and plenty full. Prices are quite reasonable. Easy to reach central location. Definite restaurant destination for those with good taste. We enjoyed family and friends outing tonight.

This is most definitely one of the better restaurants in Oslo. You can tell the quality of ingredients and the thought that goes in behind eat dish. The plates are delicate balanced and the always fresh. The homemade bread is some of the best I've ever had. The service is attentive and personal. I would definitely be frequenting here again...

The starters and main courses were perfect and the sweet lassi was right on point. the service was excellent, it was very attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant is also well located and easy to get to and beautifully decorated with traditional background music that complimented the meal. Round off your dinner with a Peshwari tea!

Lovely place. Clean and spacious. Food was great. It seemed very fresh. Very filling and good value for Oslo. The service was the highlight. The waitresses (Scottish) must be the nicest and most helpful person I have come across. I will go back again next time I am in Oslo.

Found this place while searching for a vegetarian restaurant, and this place was suggested. It is smack in the middle of the city centre, but not in the usual restaurant streets. It was quite full, but they found us a table within few minutes. The service was great, a lovely Scottish lady trying to improve her Norwegian skills (so ask... More

We have eaten at Mehfel many times and can highly recommend it! The food is just amazing. Tasteful, nicely presented and you have a great variety of dishes. We can especially recommend the lentil soup (Punjabi Daal Shorba), the tandoori dishes and Palak Paneer. The whole experience was top notch!!!
