10 Great Halal Restaurants in London

Thanks to it’s blossoming Muslim community (2.7 million in the UK with every one in 10 in London), our capital boasts it’s fair share of brilliant Halal restaurants with cuisines that span the culinary globe. As well as the more obvious enclaves of Edgeware Road, Brick and Green Lanes, haloodies (halal foodies) can also feast on morally sound food all over town, from Notting Hill to New Cross.

Mirch Masala

The kebab roll is killer here, and the dhal is also well spiced. Forget Tayyabs (which has sadly gone a bit downhill since opening it’s third floor), Mirch doesn’t have the endless queues either.

111-113 Commercial Road London E1 1RD Tel: 0207-3770155

Baku Restaurant

This Knightsbridge Azerbaijani restaurant does a great line in Azeri tapas. Just a short bus ride from Harvey Nicks, The shah plov (like an Azerbaijani biryani encased in thin delicate pastry) and sturgeon kebabs are stand out. Just take a friend or two to share - portions can be on the generous side.

Roti King

This cheap as chips place does the humble prata proud. Parents needn’t worry either - the owner adores tiny ones and will help carry buggies down the stairs. Try the curried lamb stuffed prata, the laksa is also delicious. Just go early as it tends to get busy.

Rasa Sayang

The only halal restaurant in Chinatown, fans of authentic Malaysian fare will not be disappointed. Try the satay chicken and the massaman curry.

Rasa Sayang 5 Macclesfield St, London W1D 6AY

Nabrasa

Carnivores rejoice! At this Brazilian barbecue the waiters will cut the meat from skewers at your table in traditional style.With at least 12 different cuts of meat on the menu, there are some great cheap lunch menu options available. Chicken croquettes are tasty and the halal ribs are well worth ordering, all washed down with a refreshing mocktail.

The Gourmet Hut

At last East Londoner’s can enjoy gourmet burgers with a clear conscious. The Firecracker comes in a huge pillowy brioche with cheese, spicy beef, sausage, hot sauce and with turkey bacon. Chips are crisp and whisper thin.

81 Cavell Street, Whitechapel, London E1 2BQ

Rosa’s Thai Cafe

This authentic Thai cafe has some terrific curries and satays. The yellow lamb curry in particular is creamy, deeply savoury and with the perfect balance of spicy, salty and sweet.

Benares

All the lamb and chicken is halal at Atul Kochar’s Michelin starred restaurant. The lamb seekh salad is superb and the tandoori chicken caesar also a winner.

Hoi-An

Tucked away on Hanbury Street away from the hustle and bustle of Brick Lane sits London’s first Vietnamese halal restaurant. The pho is made with rib-eye and the vegetarian banquet for two is fantastic value for money.

Jerk City

Caribbean staples are the way to go here. The chicken is, as expected, exemplary here. Also plates of rich, dark impossibly tender oxtail stew with butterbean rice are a delicious option.

189 Wardour Street, London, W1F 8ZD -020 7287 2878
