A very spicy and saucy experience with some Indian
I haven't dined or eaten a lot of Indian food to really know if I am being served truly authentic Indian food. But I was invited by my daughter to try some Indian at Indian Mehfil restaurant last weekend.

Indian Mehfil - lets get together

It was a family gathering and I must say that I was overall impressed with this restaurant and the cuisine. Indian Mehfil is located in Brisbane City, not too far from Eagle Street Pier. Parking is either street parking or one of the car parks of which there are a few within walking distance.

When you walk into the restaurant, you are immediately struck by the elegance and spaciousness of the restaurant. They cater well to group bookings and had a few banquets on offer in the menu.

Apparently, the definition of Mehfil is to get together and the space and cuisine really lend itself to this. We arrived for a late lunch on a Sunday and nearly had the whole place to ourselves and therefore we were well looked after by the friendly and efficient waitress.

The menu is quite extensive and they offer a large range of curries and traditional Indian fare. As a group, we shared the saffron rice and the naan bread which comes in many flavours, including plain, garlic, cheese, spinach and cheese and butter. They also have a large range of vegetarian options but were quite limited in the vegan options.

I decided to order the Palak Paneer which was a dish of spinach and cubed cottage cheese (paneer) cooked with mild spices, but I asked for it to be hot and it was very spicy. With naan bread and saffron rice this proved to be quite tasty.

My son ordered the popular Butter Chicken and reported that it was also very tasty. He is one that normally doesn't eat Indian food but finished off his dish.

Indian Mehfil also has a very good beverage menu serving beer, wines, spirits and cocktails. Their bar area looked well stocked. My choice was a glass of white which seem to go well with the spices.

Overall, the ambience of the place was relaxed and laid back even though it gave the appearance for an upscale dining experience. We all enjoyed the food, drink and company. The experience gives me an idea of what Indian food should be. A lunch well done.
