5 favourite Halal restaurants in Leicester

Some of Leicester's best Halal restaurants.

A Spice Bazaar dish

One of the problems with dining outdoors is not knowing whether the restaurant you want to visit is Halal or not. This concern is significant and needs to be treated seriously.

One thing Leicester isn’t short of is Halal cuisine, with most restaurants staying true to the certification efforts of the Halal Monitoring Committee (HMC).

I have selected five of my favourite restaurants located in Leicester to make your visit easier for you.


The family-run Turkish restaurant has been a favourite of mine for a long time. The vibrant lights of the restaurant draw you into the charcoal grill infused atmosphere. EFES serves Turkish staples like meze and moussaka, with large meat platters on their mangal grill, of course. Is your mouth watering yet?

Find it at 32 Braunstone Gate, Leicester LE3 5LG.

Do you want a bit of spice with everything nice? The Indian cuisine restaurant offers a friendly relaxed atmosphere and amazing service. They have an array of fine food like Tawa dishes and vegetation options that they cater to your palette. Spice Bazzar takes great pride in what they do, and it shows with their amazing menu.
