We enjoyed our dinner here last week and came away feeling well fed and full. The restaurant is quite large and on two floors. We were seated in the main part beside a window. There seemed to be a large crowd of people in the part of the restaurant below stairs judging from the noise coming from there! The part... More

The food was very much authentic Pakistani and the restaurant had a nice ambience. The food tasted great and the only downside was that the "pakoras" were overly salted - hence 4 out of 5.

The Food is outstanding..I went with my family and friends for dinner and the experience was wonderful. The quality of the food and the flavors of the spices was very excellent. The Dessert (Kulfi) was fantastic with smart mix of Gulaab Jal (Rose Flavor). I would definitely recommend everyone for a great hospitality and food . !!

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.
