Halal slaughter should be banned in this country. We have far more humane methods of animal slaughter.

Fightlevel, why don't you become a vegetarian as you are so concerned about animal welfare?

There are lots of indian restuarants which offer halal food such as Akbars, Aagrah, Cafe Guru etc. Not sure of any lebanese ones though.

Not really, what about all those people that butcher animals by electrical stunning or by gas systems? They are not humane methods at all, and i don't hear anyone complaining about them.

With regards to halal meat, it is backed by the law as well as the world's largest growing religion.

I think people should be informed on the topic in full before they start to make accusations that other people may beleive to be accurate.

It concerns me that people who put up such posts use the a particurlar topic to cover their true prejudiced personality.

Moderator,with comments like the above, this post could get very nasty! Probably best closed down now it's been hijacked by Islamic religion! Native Britons generally don't eat Halal meat!......................I wonder why.

Hijacked by islamic religion? Not at all, this is merely a point of view.

Funny how you seemed to ignore the other inhumane ways of butchering animals.

I don't think that is the case; not wanting to get drawn into the morality of killing an animal, either in accordance with a religious practice or otherwise, is the reason for no reply. Plus, it's a topic which is highly likely to get pulled my a mod so pretty futile!

You imply both/all ways are inhumane. Therefore take your own advice and become a vegetarian yourself.

Mod note:

The OP asked for advice on where the best restaurants are that use Halal meat. He/she didn't ask for a debate about the ethics of said meat.

Keep the thread on topic.

But seriously, eating Halal requires abstention from Carrion, Blood, Carnivores, Pork, Gelatin and all animals not killed in Allahís name. I can therefore recommend all of the regionís vegetarian restaurants as 100% Halal

I have a question about Halal.

Is there such a thing as a Halal meal? My understanding was that Halal just refers to the ingredients and not the way they are put together so that any meal made out of Halal foodstuffs would be Halal.

This would be different to a Kosher meal. Even if all the ingredients are Kosher, certain combinations such as mixing meat and dairy products together are strictly forbidden.

That's true. Fish and chips is halal too. My muslim work colleagues would always eat fish and chips when visiting for training
courses from overseas.

There's a nice, small and intimate restaurant on West Street/Glossop Road, called Sheikhs, up near the Oxfam bookshop.

That's Lebanese. I used to love their Halloumi cheese and tomato pitta breads MMM!

If it's specifically middle eastern/ north African cuisine that you are after, the forum foodies had a meat in the Marrakesh restaurant, at west one. The waiter assured me that their meat was all halal. (He assumed that I had ordered the veggie option so as to avoid haram meat). The food there was really nice, and really enjoyable, but as delicious as it was, I felt a bit overfaced with the amount of couscous.

There are a number of "Indian" restaurants along London Rroad, such as "Aroma" and "Jumeirah", which serve halal meat. I have eaten at both of those, and quite enjoyed the food there, on both counts. (Although I didn't have the meat, at either place, as I only eat vegetarian)
