Bristol’s Top halal restaurants

If you know me, you know I love my food and I am a big foodie. I’ve decided to put completion of Bristol’s top halal restaurants; focusing on top grill and burger joints. This is my first food blog review and hopefully, I will follow this with Asian cuisine on my next article. I will mainly focus this guide for the Muslim community that struggle to find places to eat that’s halal and exceptionally good at the same time.

This guide is based on my favourite places to eat, not a general list of every existing restaurant out on the streets of Bristol. They have all been tasted, tested and endured with many visits. In no particular order here is a list of my top favourite Halal restaurants in Bristol:

Beirut Mezze, City Centre

Start of my list, previously known as Mezze Palace. It’s a discreet place, is a perfect getaway for all dinners to enjoy classic Lebanese food. Everything on the menu is 100% halal.

Lona Restaurant, Gloucester Rd

By far the best Lebanese chargrilled meats and meze dishes in Bristol. It’s a nice casual, plenty of space with a colourful, central juice bar. Everything in this restaurant is halal, good to say, you can go all in and eat until you can eat no more.

Iron Grill, Easton

Iron Grill - shop entrance

By far the best Halal burger place in Bristol. I couldn’t agree more with the comment below:

“I had a few of their burgers on many visits to the shop. Always shockingly amazing, and always like it’s the first time! Quality of the meat is spot on. Meat is full of flavour and juicy too. They have a great menu to choose from, and they top it off nicely with a wide range of milkshakes. I would keep visiting and would recommend this place to anyone. Keep up the good food!” A Rahman on google reviews
One more thing to add the brioche buns are amazing and please don’t change it for cheap alternatives because it is good just the way they are 🙂

Nando’s, Longwell Green, Bristol

The famous Nando’s. If you want your cheeky bit of Nando’s then the halal one to try is located at Aspects Leisure Park, Longwell green. Only the Chicken is Halal despite what you have heard about the other one in Bristol being halal. This one is the only HFA/HCE and approved. My review on this is that they sell the best Afro-Portuguese serving flamed-grilled chicken that you can ask for, with their unique spicy chilli sauce selection. Favourite item on the menu – Sunset burger, chips and corn on the cob. A bit of mash and spicy rice – That’s me.

Alternately, dinners that enjoy Nando’s also should check out Peri Peri Corner. Which is more of a fast-food place but it’s a place to try, especially if you like it with that extra, extra hot sauce with your chicken. You can find peri peri corner located in Clifton and 2 branches in Easton. You’ll probably have a more pleasurable dining experience at the Clifton branch.

Las Iguanas, Harbourside, Bristol

Yes! Las Iguanas are Halal, in fact, all the restaurants in Bristol are Halal. This includes the chicken, lamb and duck dishes. However, do ask because some may have changed in various locations. The regular one I visit is located in Harbourside. Try not to pick a time too late in the evening, it does get busy and it may not be the ideal place to be when all the happy hour drinkers are coming in. Two dishes which I always pick is the blazing bird and the Lamb albondigas :).

Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Park Street, Bristol

It’s great because it’s GBK and it’s halal. The burgers are always on point and you get free peanuts whilst you wait (We all muslamics love a freebie). It’s an unlikely choice on the list but a great option to visit with your work colleagues or school/university friends that are non-muslim. But always remember to ask if they are halal because only the breaded chicken burgers are halal on the menu.

  1. Jeez, as a fellow haloodie this list is quite disappointing. You missed out the epic halal places that aren’t typically Asian, what about Yakinori and Everyday Thai? Also, Taz’s & Al Medina both shouldn’t make this list, they were terrible when I went. Iron burger is eh OK but I’d rather Wok to walk or Firewood Grill & Gelato tbh. I hope this list gets revised 👀


  2. Hey Momo11111, thanks for commenting. I have 2 articles on halal restaurants in Bristol. This one is specifically reviews based on burger and grilled places. I have another which is Asian based restaurants. I will be revising this soon. Please follow and spread the word.
