Birmingham is famed for its vast selection of restaurants, but what about halal offerings? We’ve done the research for you! Below are six of our favourite halal restaurants in Birmingham, with cuisines ranging from Indian and British to Middle Eastern. Enjoy!
Proudly boasting two cuisines — Indian and Italian — Pranzo is one of the more unique restaurants in the city. Slightly tucked away from the Stratford Road in the multicultural hot-spot of Sparkhill, this restaurant is highly rated by the locals — and rightly so. Anywhere that can serve a mean Madras and a tasty tagliatelle is well worth a visit in our books.
Easily accessible from the city centre, the Selly Park area of South Birmingham is home to one of the best curry houses in the city — Royal Watan Kashmiri. A popular fixture in Birmingham since the 1980s, the locals regularly flock here without a bad word to say about the place. Don’t forget to get a family naan — it’s bigger than most small children.
Though Damascena is more of a coffee house and delicatessen than a restaurant, it still deserves to be on the list! One of Moseley‘s best eateries, Damascena is home to some of the tastiest Middle Eastern food in the city. Whether you’re after a lamb dish, a mixed meze platter or just a coffee, you’re more than catered for here.
As the name may suggest, Syriana specialises in western Asia (specifically Syrian & Lebanese) cuisine. Located on the edge of the city centre and The Jewellery Quarter, Syriana offers home-cooked Middle Eastern dishes and a range of traditional Lebanese drinks. With a number of halal and vegetarian options, you definitely want to head to Syriana for a unique taste experience.
For the best in Persian cuisine, you’ll want to head to Saba in Balsall Heath, near Moseley. Whether you sit in or take out, you can be rest assured that Saba prides itself on friendly service and efficiency. Popular dishes here include lamb skewers, chicken marinated in saffron and spices and borani bademjan.
The only chain restaurant on the list, MyLahore is a British Asian delight. All of MyLahore’s dishes are either typically Indian or offer a British twist, so you might find a pepper chicken panini or bhuna to your tastes, and, if not, perhaps a classic beef burger will tickle your fancy! The choice really is yours, and with such an innovative, versatile menu, there is something for everyone.
