We took one of the recommended arranged set of meals from the menu and it was simply a wonderful meal. The wine offering is also top class. Very recommendable

This was a particular highlight for our trip to Oslo. The waitress was lovely and very helpful, informing us of levels of spice relative to Indian cuisine. On top of this, we were given complimentary lentil soup as "you don't get much free in Oslo and you must try it" which was lovely! Rice and dips were included with the... More

I Had the pleasure to eat my evening meal one evening here at Mehfel. From the exterior and also the interior it does not stand out as something extraordinary. But once dinner is served, it is truly a remarkable good value for money! Servings are plentiful. Service is smiling, polite and personal. The taste is as special as you would... More
