1. Bab-ul Hayat, Osaka -Updates on 3/10: This restaurant is no longer operating.

For those who are on a vacation in Osaka and looking for a decent place to eat, stop by at Bab-ul Hayat. Especially if you are a fan of Turkish delicacy that is dominated with meat, it will surely make your mouth water #MeatEverywhere. Be mindful when looking for this restaurant though as it is a bit tricky to find it. It is located on the 3rd floor of Tempozan Marketplace at the end of the hallway. You will have to spend 1,380 yen for the buffet in this restaurant, which is not bad. The interior design resembles Turkish ambience that will let you escape Japan for a while. #Tips from Halal Navi user Nurimah: You can see the restaurant from the front of Osaka Aquarium, opposite the Lego store.

"Ate at this Turkish buffet restaurant on 8 March 2017. Food is stated halal. Menu: 2 types of rice (White rice & mixture of white & brown rice), naan bread, tortilla chips, numerous hot dishes, vegetable salads, hummus, kebab meat and many types of hot & cold drinks. Ice and condiments also available. Chocolate fountain for dessert. Turkish ice-cream is sold separately at ¥150. Alcohol is also sold separately based on order so no worries about that." – Nurimah

2. Bulls, Osaka

You are in Japan! Enjoying the Japan speciality of Sukiyaki is definitely a must. Not only Sukiyaki, Bulls also serves Shabu-shabu! If you are not sure what's the difference between the two, don't worry. Shabu-shabu and sukiyaki are quite similar, both are hotpot dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables boiled in the broth/soup. The only difference among the two is the soup used. Sukiyaki uses a seasoned soup while shabu-shabu uses a plain soup, however, you will usually eat shabu-shabu with sauce. So it's up to your preference which one to choose. They charge 1,500 yen for lunch and 3,500-5,000 yen for dinner to eat all meats and veggies within the 90 minutes given.

"This restaurant is located near Asakusa station. I can tell it's a little bit hard to find since it's inside a building at a small street. However, this restaurant only offers vegetarian foods which to me, quite pricey, but the good news is: they only use ORGANIC vegetables so perhaps that's what makes the price reasonable. I spent almost 2000¥ for a single meal-set. I'm slightly surprised with the taste though, it's very light but tasty! Another good news is, they provide a proper prayer room with 2-3 prayer mats!" – ndanazihah

9. Sweet Paradise, Tokyo

You know how people always say to save room for dessert? If you believe in that too, this restaurant will absolutely satisfy your sweet tooth. There are endless trays of cakes, bread and other sweet desserts. To enjoy a session eating those fairy tale cakes, you need to pay 1,530 yen or 860 yen if you bring your kids along. You will be given 90 minutes to chew all that cakes. Yummy! But don't forget to ask for an allergy list to the staffs, as some of the cakes contain gelatin and alcohol. Make sure to read the allergy list properly so you won't pick the non-Halal items on your plate.
