I love finding out which of the best non-halal joints actually do serve halal food. When I found out honest burgers have 2 halal sites (their Tooting & Baker Street branches) I was so eager to try it, especially as I know how popular this joint is to non-Muslims. These halal branches of honest burgers serve halal chicken only (no halal beef), and it’s all handled & cooked separately. All their sides are also gluten free and any of their burgers can be made to be gluten free too!

As some of you may be aware, Dar Marrakesh on Edgware road has been quite well known for their Shisha. Recently however, they have stripped out the interior Pub, and converted the inside to a formal restaurant, serving traditional Moroccan food.
Tempus Gourmet Garden in Bethnal Green has recently reopened after a year of renovation. Since their reopening they have put a focus on serving great food, and overall this has really come across. We were initially skeptical abut how the food would be as this establishment previously had a reputation for being a shisha place, but we would definitely come back as the food, service and atmosphere were all on point!
