15 Best Halal Restaurants in Mayfair & Oxford Street + Map
Before we get started, a little disclaimer: I pay extra attention to whether all the meats are halal in a restaurant, and if I find HMC halal restaurants in London, I’ll definitely let you know. In addition, whenever pork and alcohol are served, I will indicate it in this guide.
However, since restaurants can change suppliers without notice, I would always recommend checking with the restaurant before booking or walking in, by calling or checking out their website and/or social media. Now that this is said, let’s get on with the best halal restaurants in Mayfair and Oxford Street.
And if you would like to locate all the best halal restaurants in Mayfair and Oxford Street a little bit better, take a look at the map below:
Best Halal Restaurants in Mayfair: Cocochan
Cocochan is one of the best halal restaurants in Mayfair if you’re after halal Japanese food. Right in the heart of Mayfair, Cocochan serves the finest halal sushi, sauce dishes, noodles, and crispy goodies that’ll make you want to come back again and again.
It’s not a fully halal Japanese restaurant, though, and the Mayfair restaurant clearly takes influences from Pan-Asian cuisine, with notes of Chinese foods and spices also recognizable in each of its dishes.
For those looking for outdoor dining in the best halal restaurants in Mayfair, Cocochan has a terrace on James Street. All the meat served is halal except for the duck, and Cocochan serves alcohol.
If you’re ever looking for romantic halal restaurants in London, Cocochan and its selection of fine dining halal Japanese fusion food make it one of the best places with halal food around Oxford Street. The atmosphere is clearly posh, romantic, and perfect for high-end sorts of occasions.

Best Halal Food Mayfair: Benares
Benares was featured quite a few times here already, what with being one of the uber best halal Michelin star restaurants in London. Around Central London and looking for the best halal restaurants in Mayfair? The Benares menu, built on delicate, creamy, tangy, and sweet dishes will have you sold at first bite.
For all those on an everlasting quest for the best halal Indian restaurants in London, Benares will have you dress up, put on your most beautiful makeup, and feel your best self ever.
Both lamb and chicken are halal at Benares, and there are plenty of delicious dishes featuring them. However, the duck and venison are not halal, and alcohol is served. Still, with its plates full of bountiful sauces and creams to be swept up with roti or naan, Benares has got high-end and traditional Indian street food nailed down to a T.
Inventive and colorful, the plates put together at Benares seem right out of a fairytale. Ceviche chaat, juicy lobster and flavorful rice, famously exquisite paneer tikka, okra, and dal makhani – if you’re a fan of Indian cuisine, all your favorites sit proudly on the Benares menu.
Set menus are also available, and I would recommend a visit at dinnertime to make the most of the lights and soothing atmosphere.

Best Halal Restaurants in Mayfair: Novikov
Novikov offers the best of both worlds, and that’s precisely why it is one of the best halal restaurants in Mayfair. Located on Berkeley Street, Novikov, this Russian institution of fine dining, offers two options: a halal Italian restaurant, or a halal Asian restaurant.
Although both do not offer a completely halal menu and serve alcohol, all the halal dishes are clearly indicated on the menu – that includes lamb and chicken. If you’re like me, always after halal duck in London, Novikov also has halal duck options on the menu.
Set menus are available in both restaurants, making the bill more digestible for those looking for affordable halal restaurants in London with, still, a romantic and fancy experience. I have mentioned Novikov here before since it’s a Pan-Asian restaurant offering some delicious halal Chinese food.
However, I’d still also urge you to try Novikov Italian, as I know it’s not easy to find delicious halal Italian restaurants in London, except maybe a few here and there, especially in East London.

Halal Food Mayfair: Stork Mayfair
Dubbed ‘modern Pan-African cuisine’, the Stork Mayfair menu offers plenty of never-before-tasted dishes. Being half French and half Moroccan, I am more accustomed to Moroccan restaurants in London, and North African cuisine in general.
Stork definitely deserves its rank among the best halal restaurants in Mayfair, with a fully halal menu. Lamb croquettes with ras el hanout, Ribeye (perfect for those after the best halal steak in London), miso-glazed cod, Jollof, roasted lamb… All the dishes are traditional, yet modernized in a way only Stork Mayfair could have done it.
Fairly new to the fine dining scene in London, Stork is a halal restaurant in Mayfair that exceeds any kind of expectations you might have had. For a celebration, an anniversary, or even a proposal, if you’re looking for the best halal food around Oxford Street, Stork Mayfair is the place to be – and they offer a halal brunch, too!

Best Halal Restaurants in Mayfair: Ruya Mayfair
I have never talked about Ruya Mayfair yet, but in addition to being one of the best halal restaurants in Mayfair, it also offers some of the best halal Turkish food in London. Ruya Mayfair is located on Upper Grosvenor Street, and it offers all the Turkish delicacies that you might not even be accustomed to.
Since my fiance is Turkish, I have learned little by little all about Turkish food, and Ruya Mayfair elevates mothers’ recipes to a posh halal restaurant level. Of course, you will still find on the menu sucuk and eggs, along with beautiful fish and grilled meats.
However, the atmosphere and service also make the experience at Ruya Mayfair much fancier. There are plenty of vegetarian dishes on the menu, with aubergine chips, rice, bulgur, red lentil soup, and more fish dishes.
In terms of meat dishes, you’ve got those amazing ones; çiğ köfte and Wagyu beef kebap, traditional with a touch of modern high-end at Ruya Mayfair.
Not all the meat is halal at Ruya Mayfair, but a lot of the dishes are halal, so you can definitely visit and ask waiters for their help when you’ve sat down.

Halal Food Mayfair: Kai Mayfair
Kai Mayfair is the only one of the halal restaurants in Mayfair that offers Pan-Asian food so close to Chinese tradition. With its mix of halal Japanese food and Southern China, Kai Mayfair is a king when it comes to dinnertime treats. Decorated with a Michelin star, it is the perfect restaurant to visit when you want to be pampered.
For those after the best halal afternoon tea in London, Kai Mayfair has an exquisite afternoon tea relying on those Asian flavors I love so much. Soy-glazed marinated roast lamb and their chicken and cashew nuts sit, in my opinion, at the top of dishes to order at Kai Mayfair.
All the chicken and lamb are halal, and pork and alcohol are served. Given the amount of vegetarian and fish options also available on the menu, you’ll still have a blast at Kai Mayfair. Joyful and lively, this is one of the halal restaurants in Mayfair perfect for a posh yet lowkey date, or an afternoon out with your friends.

Best Halal Restaurants in Mayfair: Burgeri
If you’re new to the city and just looking for the best free views in London, at some point, you’re going to look for halal food near Oxford Circus. That’s a fact. And at that point, we’re going to stray from the best halal restaurants in Mayfair slightly and pay a visit to Burgeri.
With its fluffy buns, juicy patties, and amazing homemade sauces, Burgeri offers some of the best halal burgers in London around Central. It’s no wonder why I actually mentioned Burgeri in my guide to the best halal burger places in London a while back, because it offers some of the best halal burgers near Oxford Street.
In addition to halal burgers, Burgeri also has some other exciting items on the menu; halal hot dogs, onion rings, and crispy sweet potato fries (my favorite!). However, when you visit, I urge you to try one of their huge halal Wagyu beef patties.
The flavor is unreal, and since all the meat served is halal at Burgeri (with no alcohol served), you’re sure to have the time of your life. We’re far from super romantic halal restaurants in London there, but we’re in Central London, so it could be a lowkey date!

Best Halal Restaurants in Mayfair: China Tang
We saw The Dorchester together in another one of my guides, but I’ve never so far talked about China Tang here. Located in The Dorchester hotel, and with a fully separate halal menu, China Tang has got to be one of the poshest, most romantic halal restaurants in Mayfair.
There are dozens of amazing halal Chinese dishes on the China Tang menu, but two, in my opinion, deserve the spotlight. For starters, their classic crispy skin chicken is otherworldy, with a deliciously glazed Chinese experience. But the highlight, the real one, is their classic Peking duck.
If you’ve been here before, we’ve already seen together that finding halal duck in London is something a real mission. At China Tang, where no pork and no alcohol touch the rest of the halal menu, you can be sure that you’re tasting some of the best halal duck in London.
Pigeon, beef, lobster, scallops, and lamb are all featured on an extensively exquisite menu. With Chinese flavors bursting in your mouth, you’ll clearly see why China Tang is one of the best halal restaurants in Mayfair.

Best Halal Restaurants in Mayfair: Mamounia Lounge
Mamounia Lounge is one of the most perfect halal restaurants in Mayfair, especially if you’re missing Moroccan food and Middle-Eastern specialties. Being half Moroccan, I’ve found it pretty difficult to find really good halal Moroccan restaurants in London, and Mamounia Lounge is the one place you should head off to for a mix of grilled meats, various meze, and tagine.
Mamounia Lounge used to offer one of the best halal afternoon teas in London, created with a twist for anyone adventurous enough to try a classic British afternoon tea elevated to Middle-Eastern standards, but since 2020, it is not available anymore.
However, the smart casual restaurant is perfect if you’re looking to take your family or friends to a cool halal restaurant near Oxford Street. All meat halal, alcohol is served.

How could I write a guide to the best halal restaurants in Mayfair and leave out Drunch? Indeed, it is one of the most instagrammable cafes in London, and with flowers decorating the threshold, it makes for an energizing sight.
On the menu of Drunch Mayfair, some of the most colorful bites for a delicious halal brunch in London; pancakes, French toast, and homemade granola are all available for an instagrammable brunch. However, their halal Full English breakfast is also one to try absolutely, with tasty turkey rashers and beef sausages.

I mentioned Patara in the full guide to the best halal Thai restaurants in London, and with a few branches all over town, they’re probably one of the most sought after halal Thai spots. It’s easy to understand why, especially if you visit their halal restaurant in Mayfair, right off Regent Street; the decor is stunning and sets the tone for an utterly fine dining evening.
At Patara, you’ll find lots of classic Thai dishes made halal – all the meat is halal except for the duck. Fish cakes, green chicken curry, satay, basil beef; the only trouble you’ll have is actually choosing the most delicious dish.
A few different set menus are available; ranging from £40 to £50 per person (minimum order: two people), Patara is probably one of the most affordable fine dining halal restaurants in Mayfair.

Best Halal Restaurants in Mayfair: Sartoria
Although Sartoria Mayfair isn’t a completely halal restaurant to start with, you might have seen it in my guide to the best halal Italian restaurants in London, just because you can preorder halal meat.
Offering Italian food that revolves around classics, Sartoria cooks to perfect grilled octopus, veal with tuna sauce (one of the most classic Italian dishes), risotto, and other lobster pasta dishes all more delicious than the previous one.
I, for one, love Italian food and after living in Rome for a year, I knew when I came back to London that I couldn’t just stop having my proper Italian coffee in the morning, let alone eat Italian food that wouldn’t be up to the standards I’ve experienced in Italy.
If you’re looking for the best halal restaurants in Mayfair, Sartoria on Savile Row is located just a stone’s throw away from Oxford Circus Station, and it offers halal meat to be preordered 48 hours in advance.

Best Halal Restaurants in Oxford Street: Chopstix Noodles Bar
Canary Wharf, Bromley, Lewisham, South Kensington, Hammersmith… Chopstix Noodles has a lot of branches all around London, and of course, if you’re looking for the best halal restaurants in Oxford Street, you’d do well to visit Chopstix Oxford Street, not too far from Primark and one of my favorite TK Maxx in London to buy TK Maxx candles.
Chopstix has a very simple way to order food, which can be eaten in, taken away, or delivered: choose a base; rice or noodles, a meat or vegan option, and a topping that includes sweet and sour, teriyaki, or even Chinese sauce.
If you’re looking for the best halal restaurants in Mayfair on a day out shopping with friends or your other half, Chopstix is one of the most affordable halal restaurants on Oxford Street in Central London, and one of my favorites.
Especially given that they have halal certifications available to download on their website, and absolutely every meat from chicken to beef and even Kpop chicken is halal certified.
I remember visiting Chopstix Noodles on Oxford Street a lot when I first moved to London and lived close enough that I would study at Starbucks day in, day out – a huge restaurant, power outlets, and delicious food that reminds me a bit of Chinese Oodles in Holborn, with a different twist.
