London is a melting pot of different cultures, and that’s certainly evident in its eclectic culinary scene. That goes for halal food too, which has increased dramatically over recent years across a wide array of different cuisines – you just need to know where to look. Luckily for you dear readers, we’ve done all that hard work for you. Here’s our rundown of six of the best halal restaurants in London:

Roti King

This tiny, cult Malaysian spot is just across the road from Euston station, and it specializes in unforgettable roti canai – a flatbread of Indian origin that is extremely loved in Malaysia and Singapore. All the food prepared here is halal in its entirety, and it’s pretty damn good. It goes without saying that the roti canai goes well with the various different curries whipped up here, but there’s plenty more on offer at Roti King. The ‘Nasi Lemak’ – steamed coconut rice served with peanuts, fried anchovies, cucumber, egg, sambal, and spiced fried chicken – is pretty much to die for, and there are some excellent noodle dishes to boot too. Word of advice – it gets very busy here so be prepared to queue!


Another Malaysian spot, the cheerful Tukdin is all about authentic flavors and bloody good food. Started up by a Malaysian family, all the food served here is halal, and the prices are more than reasonable. Starters include oxtail soup on the bone, veggie spring rolls, and stir-fried chicken with cucumber and onions, and there is a whole host of mains you can dive into too. Top picks include the ‘Kari Udang’ – a mouthwatering prawn curry with green beans – and the ‘Daging Salai Masak Lemak Cili Api’ – a lovely mix of grilled beef and bamboo shoots in a spicy coconut sauce. There are veggie and vegan options here too.

The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys first started out in New York in 1990, when they sold halal food to Muslim taxi drivers, who had little to eat in the city at that time. The three Egyptian brothers then expanded their business to what it is today – a 400-restaurant-strong business striving to be ‘the leading and best American Halal Food restaurant in the world. They’re famous for their halal platters – which include beef, chicken, and falafel – and they’ve got some mean sandwich wraps here too.

Taza Kebab House

This one is arguably one of the best halal restaurants in Central London. Incredibly good value, the family-run Taza Kebab House is one of the oldest kebab restaurants in London, and it has been rustling up excellent fare since it first opened its doors in 1985. The shawarma kebabs here are mouth-wateringly good – and a steal at just £3.50 – and other things on the menu include shish kebabs, kofta kebabs, and special vegetarian rice. You’re just a stone’s throw away from Bayswater and Queensway tube stops here, and Hyde Park is just across the road – a perfect spot for a post-kebab walk.

Rosa’s Thai Cafe

Another worthy addition to this list of the best halal restaurants in London, Rosas Thai Cafe combines modern London with bustling Bangkok, and their authentic Thai food is some of the city’s best. Go in the day for one of their delicious lunch bowls, filled with one of their stir fries and topped with a fried egg, boiled egg, or Thai-style salad. Veggie and coeliac-friendly menus are available, including pumpkin crackers (instead of prawn) and vegan spring rolls. The beef and chicken here are all halal prepared, and they serve a mean pad thai, massaman curry, and tom yum soup too.

Uzmania Grill

Uzamina Grill is one of the first and best Shisha and food restaurants located in Derby. From Asian food to Italian foods, and delicious peri chicken. Its menu has been created to meet the needs of everyone. Only the finest ingredients are used. They only utilize the finest and freshest ingredients at Uzmania Grill. With a strong modern brand and the promotion of healthy, fresh, nutritious ingredients that appeals to a broad market, “Uzmania Restaurant” can only continue to grow and succeed.
