A blog DEDICATED to discovering the best in halal food in London and BEYOND



I rarely travel south of the river, mainly due to the long journey times by car, there’s always traffic and it’s never fun. When it comes to restaurants, there’s a lack of anything good South with only a few exceptions.

If you like restaurants with a vibe, amazing decor and quality service.. Then this is not it. However, if you are a true foodie this place is must visit.

Meli-melo is a restaurant that offers a wide range of unique dishes with elite presentation. From brunches, roasts, burgers and steaks there’s plenty to use from.


Lamb rack Sunday roast £20
Beef cheek cannelloni £14
Lamb quesadillas £9
Baboon fries £6.50
Crispy cauliflower £6
Vanilla Sky Dessert £8

The signature Sunday roast that’s available every day is a work of culinary mastery. It’s available as Beef, Lamb, and chicken. Every element on the plate was a delight, it’s easy to see the love, passion and energy that’s gone into this dish. It’s easily the best halal Roast you can get. The lamb rack was cooked perfectly with the tasty fat left on for that extra flavour. All the vegetables were elite and the secret orange mash is like crack, so good. It’s worth going here just for this dish alone.

Lamb Rack Sunday Roast

The Beef cheek cannelloni was something similar to what I had once at The Great Chase, what I loved about this dish was the leak croquette.

I decided to try some other dishes off the menu, Lamb quesadillas, Baboon fries, and Crispy cauliflower. While these dishes didn’t have any faults with them cooking wise, I just wasn’t impressed with the overall flavours and taste and thought the sauces on most of these dishes overpowered everything.

Old-school foodies might remember a burger joint called Brioche Burger, who levelled up the halal burger scene, the owner and chef worked there and current foodies will know about The Great Chase where he was the Head chef.

There isn’t a halal restaurant like this in London, the place is small and intimate and only offers space for 16 guests at maximum capacity. It’s like one man band, the chef takes the orders, cooks and serves the food! So don’t expect top service here or a vibe, just really good food.

We finished off the meal with an elite dessert, another dish made up of loads of separate elements that came together in harmony. The croffle, is the chef’s unique invention of mixing a waffle and a croissant. The freshly made vanilla and pistachio creams were a pleasure to eat.

I’d strongly suggest making a booking if you go as seating is limited. All food is halal. No alcohol served. No music, Quran and nasheeds played. I paid for my meal.
