[Tip] 7 halal restaurants you should try when live in Hanoi

In a city where Muslim-friendly restaurants aren’t as thriving as their Southeast Asian neighbours, discovering the halal side of Hanoi is part of the city’s big adventure.

1. d’Lions Restaurant

Having Singaporean and Malaysian food in Hanoi may seem like an odd choice but that’s part of the perks of dining in Southeast Asia.

From claypots and curries to noodles and vegetarian, their menu is pretty easy to navigate for folks with a hefty appetite. If you’re new to this category of dishes, everything from the flavourful Malaysian nasi lemak and mee goreng to spicy Singaporean chilli crab make fantastic introductions.

A dash of Vietnamese elements on your table is a must, so make space for their traditional pho (chicken or beef noodle soup), fresh goi cuon (spring roll), nem chua be (fried spring roll) and stir-fried beef.

We recommend crispy appalam (lentil crackers) for starters before diving into a choice of curries such as the tasty chicken masala dosa and mutton rajma masala for an introduction to North and South Indian flavours.

If you’re stuck in your room (Vietnamese local dramas can be addictive), the restaurant is more than happy to deliver to your hotel. Our suggestion for TV dinner: the grilled goodness of mutton seekh kebab with a side of chicken lollypop.

Another option for lunch and dinner would be the Khazaana that prides themselves for serving halal cuisine since 1992. With a menu peppered with South Indian, Desi and Mughal influences, expect your curries and tandooris to be laced with explosive spices of Indian origin. Of course, like they always say: the spicier, the better.

Everything from the fiery chicken vindaloo to goan fish curry come with plenty of heat, as well as the savoury bhuna mutton that is made from grilled Australian lamb. To tame the intensity, it’s wise to have a refreshing mango lassi or homemade Indian ice cream or the saffron kulfi on standby.

Past travel stories have warned us of dubious Vietnamese eateries that disguise as halal restaurants for additional profit. While most of our listed eateries are halal-certified, a phone call is well encouraged before deciding on lunch and dinner at your chosen restaurants in Hanoi.

Let your taste buds explore the realm of Pakistani, Middle Eastern and Afghani flavours with your foot firmly rested on Hanoi grounds at Nan N Kabab. True to its name, their speciality in fresh baked naan and grilled kebab is well-noted by the Muslim and expat community here.

Our-dream-lunch-at-Nan-N-Kabab

Barbeques are what everyone is having at this rustic restaurant (aside from vegetarian fare), so we encourage you to dine outdoors. Whether it’s the savoury chicken reshmi or the spicy mutton seekh kabab that interests you, a day at Nan N Kabab is a good opportunity to take on Arabic and Afghani dishes like lamb handi and peshawari chapli kebab. Lastly, wash it all down with a glass of warm Pakistani tea.
