Michelin Star Restaurants in London That Serve Halal – The 2021 Edition
Yesterday, we tuned into the Michelin star announcement ceremony that was streamed live on YouTube to hear which London restaurants gained, maintained, or lost their star(s). Although we aren’t entirely sure how they managed to judge these restaurants given the hospitality sector has been closed for the best part of last year, we watched Benares reclaim the star it had lost in the previous year, all thanks to head chef Sameer Taneja, a few places moved from 2 to 3 stars, and we even witnessed a restaurant that had only been open for 20 days receive a star!
In terms of Michelin-starred restaurants that serve halal*, the number stands at an approximate 16 out of 67 in comparison to last year’s 20. This doesn’t mean these restaurants have stopped offering halal option but due to COVID-19, getting a hold of these places has proven to be quite difficult so we haven’t received confirmation on their halal status just yet. Mind you, many of these places offer great vegetarian and pescatarian options so you won’t even be missing out on the meat options!
Nevertheless, here is the 2021 edition of Michelin starred restaurants in London that serve halal so far.
*Disclaimer: Please keep in mind that a restaurant that serves halal differs from a halal restaurant. The latter is usually owned by a Muslim and has a fully halal menu and no alcohol. The former is a restaurant that can accommodate for halal diners with partially halal menus or preorders and you will need to discuss with them about any cross contamination – they are usually very well informed about this and do take precaution but best to double check if this is a concern for you. Please do double check the halal status of the restaurant when you visit as suppliers may have changed since this post was written.
