Audi Diana Halal Navi

“You can look up for Audi Diana in Halal Navi!”

Our first foodie are Audi & Diana, a Malaysian couple with two kids that had lived in Japan for several years. Living in Japan for such a long time, they have tried a whole lot of restaurants (they wrote more than 40 reviews in Halal Navi !), they definitely know which are the best in town. So here are 9 Halal friendly restaurants in Japan that they suggest you to put in your itinerary for your next trip to Japan!

1. Tentei, Narita International Airport

Tentei could be the first stop after landing that long flight from your home country. It is probably the best choice to enjoy the flavour of traditional Japanese dish in Narita Airport.

Audi Diana’s experience in Tentei :

We were dangerously close to miss the flight that I didn’t managed to take a picture of the restaurant. This tempura restaurant is MHC-certified so no worries about halal status whatsoever. The seafood tendon Ajisai set that I’ve savored is quite delicious with a generous add-on of steamed egg. We came with empty stomach anyway so there might be a little bias :). Kid’s menu and English version menu provided. Nonetheless, a way better option than La Toque in my opinion. Recommended.

2. My Bread, Tokyo

Having a pack itinerary while in Tokyo? Grab some breads in this cafe to keep you energised throughout the day. Although it is not Halal certified, they do provide Halal friendly breads for their Muslim customers.

Audi Diana’s say on My Bread :

The chicken curry bun is absolutely delicious especially when it’s fresh from the oven. No wonder it’s routinely needed to be replenish. A short peek inside revealed that they might use Malaysian Brahim’s curry product. Which could be the reason no chicken or meat-based pizza being offered. A great place to start the day. And no, the mascot in the picture isn’t included in the fukubukuro :p

3. The U-don, Kansai International Airport

You’d better stop by at this Udon restaurant before starting your exploration in Kansai. Their udon is quite famous among travellers and you can add on tempura, karaage, and other toppings. If you are not a fan of noodles, you can order their gyudon instead, a rice bowl topped with beef.

Audi Diana’s review on The U-don :

Perfect for any Muslim who has just arrived at the KIX airport. As it’s halal certified by Malaysian Halal authority, this restaurant is a safe bet for halal udon with karaage, beef’s tripe and all the usual add-ons. Tasty food at a fair price. Conveniently located with plenty of space.

Audi Diana’s impression on Sitara Halal Restaurant:

The best news this one situated within walking distance from the Osaka mosque. I don’t have the chance to dine in as I’m in a hurry to get on the Shinkansen. Nonetheless, we’ve got ourselves takeaway briyani and it’s quite good. Fair price and ample space for dining. And friendly waiter ready to serve you. As an extra plus, they also sell halal items within the restaurant, dry and frozen ones.

Audi Diana’s Review on Hafez :

Located at the city center and within walking distance of the nearest station. Serves Iranian dishes. Restaurant is at the second floor with panoramic view of the surrounding city which is quite nice. Delicious food and we spent quite a huge amount of time and..yen as well, you get the drift. Ample space and nice decor but they serve alcohol.

Audi Diana’s Say on Yusha Restaurant :

To be honest, average taste at best but one of VERY few restaurants to fully offer halal food Without alcohol. And for that alone I really appreciated the owner for his effort. Dining space is limited but there are three private parking spots in front of the outlet. Superbly friendly owner, lasting impression. Recommended.

Audi Diana’s review on Warung Matahari :

Owned by a Balinese with authentic dishes. Probably a chef based on the serving’s presentation. Sumptuously delicious with huge Balinese varieties. Definitely not a let down. Open @17.30, limited seats available. Since the unique taste draws the patrons, prior reservation recommended. Serves alcohol and quite expensive. Parking is nearby.

8. Maguroya, Fukuoka

For those who are a fan of sashimi, Maguroya in Fukuoka is a definite choice for you. Let your taste bud be pampered with its fresh and raw cut of fish.

 What Audi Diana says about Maguroya :

Offers sashimi, kaisendon and teishoku all of fish-based, hence insyaAllah halal. Convenient for travelers at the hakata station. Try their teishoku, fairly priced yet full of satisfaction. Finding it in the vast Hakata station is quite challenging though. Look for B-1 of the AMU Plaza.

Audi Diana’s experience in Aladdin :

Probably the most famous halal restaurant in Fukuoka. The owner is a Muslim. There is a second floor mainly for event. Serves delicious Indian dishes at a bargain price. Variety of dishes and the roti is definitely won’t be a let down. Only downside like other restaurants they serve alcohols. Recommended for the cheap price and tasty dishes..
