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 guided and the personnel helps to find dishes for the first time visitors. That indeed becomes a good introduction to a new food tradition. For them who are aware of Pakistani and Indian dishes, can find variety of unique entries on the menu. Mehfel is only restaurant in the city that offers traditional Pakistani dishes like Karela gosht or Bhindi gosht. The food is always prepared with care and looks good when served. The mouth-watering taste always brings one back to the place.
Quality of meat and ingredients is extremely exclusive and carefully chosen. Service is friendly and helpful. Atmosphere is cosy and homely. The visit is always worth the money one pays.

During Easter, i made a plan with my friends to take dinner outside. we decided to go at Mehfel after saw from internet. This was our first visit to Mehfel, although we have tried other Pakistani/Indian restaurant before. First thing we notice is the environment which is quiet and neat with good background music. The staff was friendly and helping. We got a free complementary appetizer. The food was really tasty and appreciable. If you are a vegetarian this is right place for you. you can have a variety of Pakistani dishes. I will recommend you to try MURGH MANGO, BHINDI-DO-PIYAZA, KARELA GOSHT. Don't forget to try Mango Lassi. worth to visit.

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.
