Even in a city as large as Oslo, finding a range of vegetarian options can be tricky with fish dominating so many menus away from simple snack bars and cafes. It was the promise of a range of veggie options which took us here and we had a really good meal. With a choice of seven veggie main course options... More

We walked by and were pulled in by the looks of the place, and the visible high tripadvisor score that was displayed. Very pleasant ambiance and warm welcome, we were servered with a delicious lentilsoup followed by high quality food with very distinct tastes. Warmly recommended!

Came across the place while walking to the Norwegian military museum. The staff especially Karen who served us was welcoming and extremely gracious. We started with the daal soup which was delicately spiced and almost as good as my Mums home cooked lentil variety. This was followed by a mixed grill platter a traditional north Pakistani meat assortment which was... More

I was recommended to eat here in a gym and when I walked in the man who just walked out gave the resto a thumbs up. The Scottish girl Karen has great communication skills so I was happy to poke fun at her in English. The restaurant serves a gentrified and luxurious version of Pakistani food and the price is...

The food was excellent, the service fantastic! We had a dinner with our two small kids and another family with two kids of similar age. We got a separate part of the restaurant all for ourselves! The kids loved the freedom, we loved the relaxed atmosphere!

Been here with a colleague for dinner in March 2016. The restaurant is pleasantly designed, service was kind and attentive, and all portions we have tried were of great quality and wonderful taste. However, portions are relatively small in comparison to other places and the place lacks any "wow" factor to make it stick out in a special way in... More

We had a fantastic dinner at Mehfel. The service is professional and friendly. The food was a great discovery, as a non-vegetarian I definitely discover the wide range of vegetarian dishes Pakistani cuisine had to offer; it is such a pleasure to get several curries and soups all vegetarian and all unique! Don't worry though, the meat dishes are delicious... More
