How to Find Halal Restaurants Nearby
How to Find Halal Restaurants Nearby - news, the poster on the site «HalalGuide»
#HG Progress
One of the best things we like to do, as human beings, is enjoy food. Who doesn’t? Tucking into a decadent meal is what most of us look forward to in a day.

When sightseeing, working, or simply having a day out in London, it is quite likely that you will need to stop and eat somewhere. This sounds quite simple, find a restaurant, order food, and eat! However, if you follow Halal guidelines, simply finding an authentically Halal restaurant can prove a difficult task.

Searching for Halal food:

Most people will Google, ‘Halal food near me’ and several restaurants or takeaways will pop up, claiming to be Halal. Unfortunately, Google is not a hundred percent accurate, and is unable to find a lot of restaurants that are Halal. For example, there are a few Chicken and Chip shops that claim to be Halal, but on closer inspection, they don’t have the certificate, and are not Halal.

Another issue is that Google will find restaurants that serve Halal food, but do not ‘prepare it in a Halal way’. What this actually means that though the meat may come from a Halal source, it is cooked alongside non-Halal meat. This, ultimately, makes it non-Halal.

The Halal Guide:

To eliminate the ambiguity behind these partially Halal restaurants, the Halal Guide does not include them in its search, narrowing down the correct Halal restaurants for you to enjoy. This particular and significant elimination can help you find the best Halal restaurant nearby. Halal Guide’s mission is clear and focused, making it a more ideal search tool than Google.

Halal Guide can be used on a web browser, but it also has a downloadable App, which allows you to search for Halal restaurants nearby.

How the ‘Halal Guide’ differs:

The Halal Guide App detects your current location, and finds the nearest Halal Restaurant to you, automatically. You can also determine if you want a restaurant, home delivery or supermarket. What Halal Guide does, that is unique to it, is categorise the Halal restaurants based on their credibility.

For example, there are Red, Yellow and Green Flags, and these flags determine the Halal credibility of that restaurant:

  • The Red Flag shows restaurants and takeaways that serve Alcohol and Shisha.
  • The Yellow Flag shows restaurants and takeaways that do not have the appropriate Halal certificate, or have a certificate of Halal food from their meat suppliers only.
  • And the Green Flag shows the restaurants and takeaways that are Halal, with the appropriate Halal certificate.

 What this means is that, if you are looking for a Halal restaurant which also serves Shisha, then you need to look out for the Red Flag. Equally, if you want to avoid such places, you need to avoid the Red Flags.

Additionally, the Halal Guide App shows reviews of each restaurant and allows you to enter a new Halal place, should you come across one that is not on their site already. However, Halal Guide has over 1200 restaurants and takeaways in London, alone, so the likelihood is that they have got it covered!


Overall, this App is a safe way of finding authentic and credible Halal restaurants and takeaways near you. If you are out and about in London, you can find your local takeaway for lunch, or check out a new place whilst you sightsee the attractions. More so, it also has bonus features including a Salah time table for your current location, a compass to orient you towards Makkah, and a Mosque search to find the closest one to you.

Halal Guide is the ultimate essential App to have, so you can spend more time enjoying your food, than worrying about it.
