15. Naritaya Halal Yakiniku, Kyoto

It seems like we are starting off with heavy dishes: Yakiniku! Nothing could go wrong with indulging a piece of meat especially when the beef that they provide is so high quality. You won't need to cut into small pieces because like one of the foodies said, it will literally melt in your mouth *drools*

Review on Halal Navi :

"A cosy place, with good authentic food and very pleasant hospitality. Kway Teow is a must try. Ayamas Roasted Chicken will take 20-30mins, so I suggest you order other food first as a start. A small praying corner for one person is also available. My second time here and definitely won't be my last." - Raudha Ismail

Black sesame ramen, 3 pieces gyoza and soybean karaage by ndanazihah

Review on Halal Navi :

"A great place with affordable price. Tried their spicy, sesame seed and miso noodles and the best one is miso for me. The others served with thick soup and makes you sick easily. The hotness from the spicy one kinda helps though. Their portion are kind of enormous to me, always feels hella full after eating the noodles. Oh and last one, I tried their pre package curry and it was okay. A little too sweet for my taste but still acceptable." - baobao

Review on Halal Navi :

"Craving for some chicken so I came here at the end of the day. At first a bit confused to find the place because the area was crowded but then I saw one of the staff in front of the store. When they show me the menu, I just want to order everything 😅  but then I decided to order Chicken Rice for takeaway. Two slices of tasty chicken and a big portion of rice. The sambal isn’t really spicy. They also gave sauce in different pack (didn’t took the picture of it). Definitely gonna try the." - Risti

10. Ramen Honolu Ebisu, Tokyo

It's time for some ramen adventure starting now, and let's start the journey with Ramen Honolu first! This shop is very popular among locals and tourist with their spicy ramen but besides ramen, they also have Gyouza and Karaage. By the way, you can get Karaage for free when you leave a review on our apps 'Halal Navi' 😉

Spicy ramen by Arifudin Achmad

Review on Halal Navi :

"Great location, great quality. The broth is thick and flavourful and the spicy ramen has a mellow spiciness, maybe from chili oil, which is perfect in cold weather. I came in with a slight cold and left feeling really good!

The ground floor seating is at the counter with a table outside. The upstairs has tatami-style seating but the stairs going up are very steep and there isn't much room to take off one's boots (something to consider if you're coming with the elderly or small children). Otherwise, it's a great space with a small praying area for one." - Najah Nasseri

8. Hanasakaji-san, Tokyo - Updates on 10/10: This restaurant is no longer operating.

Imagine dipping your halal Japanese beef in a bonito sauce. The beef will soak up all the bonito taste in the meat and will slowly melt in your mouth*drools*  The all-time favourite menu here are Halal Washoku and Halal Shabu-shabu set that you can get from 4,000 – 4,500 yen! Although it might be a little bit pricey, sometimes you need to treat yourself with something, which in this case: food.

Review on Halal Navi :

"The place was easy to find using google maps. We had the wagyu beef set (~¥5000) and the shabu shabu beef set (¥4800). Both sets are quite pricey and portion is a bit small for the price but it filled us up just nice as we are small eaters. The shabu shabu set was accompanied by 4-pc tempura, one slice of grilled fish, tamago (egg), a bowl of veg salad and sashimi." - Jess

7. Yoshiya Shinjukuten, Tokyo

Although most of the user has difficulty to look out for the place, once they found it they can't help to say it every step they took! They provide a limited Halal Japanese menu, but the serving size is too much to handle for one person!

"Was difficult to find the place. Thankfully, the pics at Halal Navi helped. It at the basement of the Metro Station, not linked to Keio or Odakyu or Lumine. The staff was friendly and helpful. He seems to be a Turkish, I think. The food is good and wholesome but limited to 4 halal menu only. Hope they can expand the halal menu." - Erwin

6. Ayam-Ya Kyoto Eki Mae, Kyoto - Updates on 10/10: This restaurant is no longer operating.

What more can you ask for when the restaurant that selling delicious ramen is near the station? Well, one thing for sure. You have to try it for yourself! The ordering system is unique too as you get to buy tickets form the vending machine at the entrance (order like the locals!) and once you've received the ticket, you just need to pass it to the staff! If you decide to dine in here, do try their Spicy Ramen or Tsukemen (Dipped Noodles) as it is the popular menu here.

Tsukemen in size XL by Riena

Review on Halal Navi :

"Their food taste was good and not very spicy. Actually, my first choice is Spicy Ramen but the vending machine said Spicy Ramen is sold out. So i have to choose Tsukemen. The portion you can choose from M to XL. My mistake i choose XL. Totally huge portion and can share with 2-3 person. Oh yeah, its suitable with kids too. If you bring your kids, they can eat here, some of Ramen not so spicy. My kids love the Ramen and Kara Age (Fried Chicken). Recommended! 👍🏼👍🏼 " - Riena

3. Ali's Kitchen, Osaka

After a long day of exploring Shinsaibashi, it's time to dine in at very famous Halal Indian-Pakistani restaurants, Ali's kitchen! They are famous for their biryani rice that has a rich flavor and aroma, but if you are not a fan of biryani, they also serve other types of Arabic foods such as kebab, falafel, and Humus. The most surprising thing is they also served Halal Wagyu beef! *drolling*

The best biryani in Osaka by Haroon Aqil

Review on Halal Navi :

"Like its slogan, they have the best Biryani here in Osaka. The owner, Mr. Ali, is a muslim and he’s really friendly. The people behind the kitchen are mostly muslim too. It’s better to take reservation for a large group and notice that they have break between 3~5pm. They served alchohol as drinks but all the foods are halal and really authenthic. Made with imported ingredients from Pakistan and cooked and prepared by native. I recommend you to try their Mango Lassi and Hot Chai for drink. I love their hot chai, it’s fantastic." - Bet
