When it comes to restaurants with halal options the cuisine found tends to fall under the following categories of food either – Indian, Turkish/Middle Eastern, Grilled chicken or Burgers. Nothing wrong with that at all! it’s a favourite type of food of mine and I’m sure a fav of yours too. But there’s so much more to discover than burgers, curries and kebabs
So here’s a list of OVER 40 of my favourite spots for alternative halal food options. This is a list of my personal selection of restaurants, I have been to most of them.
NOTE: Halal status can change without notice, please double check when booking to confirm halal status, I have used my best research and knowledge to make sure the information provided here is accurate.

The Great Chase
There’s no other place to start than here, a fully halal restaurant that serves modern European and British food from a talented chef and team that are at the driving force to deliver something new and different for the halal food scene. The food here is always new and different.
One of my most popular and favourite discoveries and was right under my nose, from the front of the restaurant you would be forgiven to think it was halal, but all the meat and chicken is from a premium halal supplier. The menu changes every month and while they do have one of the best burgers in London, they also have a menu that’s a mix of American, British and European classics.
Steak on the Green
I really nice spot in west London, with Steaks and a few French dishes.

Frog by Adam Handling
From Masterchef finalist chef Adam Handling comes the Flagship restaurant Flog, using local ingredients on a contemporary British menu.

Pan Asian – Food from the far East and East Asia
My favourite type of cuisine is Malaysian, I love food from the South East of Asia, I have been to that area 5 separate times and was there for over 2 months in early 2019 (during the pandemic) so safe to say I’m a big fan of all food,
Eating something delicious makes me happy and this absolutely amazing beef rendang from @rasasayang_london in Soho brought the biggest smile to my face and was one of my favourite things I’ve eaten in a long time. If you have never had beef rendang before, go here, order it and thank me with your Dua’s. It’s that good.
Loads of other Asian classics available as well. All meat Halal.

Had one of my best meals of 2019 at the Japanese restaurant @robata.soho with some beautiful Japanese dishes. The star of the show was the Hay Flamed Beef Fillet. At £25 for only 200g of meat, it’s a pricey dish, but you get your own little Robata at your table to cook your meat and the accompanying sides that included chimichurri were just delicious.
A classic spot for very good food with loads of halal options, but everyone’s favourite is not a meat dish, but the dynamite prawn’s shown below. Chicken, Beef and Lamb Halal.
