10 Halal Restaurants with a view in London
As I write this post, the sun is gloriously shining. For how long? Who knows, this is London weather after all; I’m expecting a snow blizzard in 5 minutes. But as summer is finally making it’s way to us, why not make the most of the clear skies and book a meal with a tremendous view of the skyline. Here is a list of 10 halal restaurants with a view in London – enjoy!
10 Halal Restaurants with a view in London
Galvin at Windows
Why: Having stunning panoramic views across London, there is a reason this classic Park Lane Michelin-starred establishment is popular for proposals, anniversaries, and even just memorable occasions. It is also the only place in London that the Queen will refuse to enter; the views are so great, you’ll be able to peek into her back garden!
Where: London Hilton Park Lane 22 Park Lane, Mayfair, W1K 1BE
The Halal: Halal chicken can be preordered 5 days in advance
Ting at the Shard
Why: When translated, Ting means “living room” in Chinese and crikey, this is one special living room found all the way on the 35th floor, with views looking over Tower Bridge. The floor to ceiling windows will mesmerise you as much as the Asian-influenced European dishes on the menu. Be sure to book in advance to snag the best tables!
Where: Ting, The Shard, Level 35, 31 St Thomas St, London, SE1 9RY
The halal: Halal chicken and lamb must be preordered 24 hours in advance
Why: Located near the top of the famous Walkie Talkie, Darwin Brasserie boasts a fantastic view of the concrete jungle, aka the city, and beyond. Not only are the views impressive, but the three-tiered landscaping is just as picturesque and the British-based dishes are great value for money.
Where: 20 Fenchurch Street, London EC3M 3BY
The halal: Halal chicken can be preordered 72 hours in advance
Fenchurch at Sky Garden
Why: Serving contemporary British cuisine, the Fenchurch Restaurant can be found just a floor above the Darwin Brasserie in the Walkie Talkie. The food is top notch and supposedly the best restaurant out of all the skyscraper restaurants in London. Just be sure to request a table with the best view as some of them are obscured by the building’s canopy.
Where: 20 Fenchurch Street, London, EC3M 3BY
The halal: Halal chicken and lamb can be preordered 72 hours in advance.
Why: Roast stands out on this list as not your typical restaurant-with-a-view option, but there is something serene about watching the hustle and bustle of Borough market pass by below whilst listening to the live piano performance and dining on delicious, comforting food.
Where: The Floral Hall, Stoney Street, London SE1 1TL
The halal: Halal options available 72 hours in advance
Why: Located on the 37-39th floor of a Novotel hotel, Bokan has stunning views over Canary Wharf and the city from every angle of the restaurant, including the washrooms. The menu is heavily European based with an Asian influence and is ideal for a very romantic date with the Mrs.
Where: Floor 37-39, 40 Marsh Wall, Canary Wharf, E14 9TP
The halal: Halal chicken can be preordered 48 hours in advance
Why: Great for summer and winter time, when it becomes a winter lodge, this al-fresco restaurant specialises in a classical French menu. The rooftop is complete with a view of the city’s skyscrapers. A great location but expect to be surrounded by bankers.
Where: No. 1 Poultry, London EC2R 8EJ
The halal: Halal lamb rump, lamb rack, beef fillet, and sirloin steak can be preordered 72 hours in advance. There is a £10pp supplement for halal.
Why: A hidden gem amongst them all, Min Jiang can be found tucked away in the Royal Garden hotel in Kensington and arguably boasts the best views in London, across Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Your other half might appreciate that this is where England celebrated winning (the first and last time, of course) the 1966 football world cup.
Where: Royal Garden Hotel, 2-24 Kensington High St, London W8 4PT
Lamb and duck is halal – updated: August 2019
Why: Located inside the snazzy members-only club at Eight Moorgate, Quartier is a sleek and smart restaurant with a great view of the city; ideal for impressing a work client. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a member to dine at the restaurant.
Where: Eight Moorgate, 1 Dysart Street, London, EC2A 2BX
The halal: Halal meat can be preordered and must be requested when booking.
Why: Plateau is another al fresco, Manhattan-esque option on the list, overlooking the financial world of Canary Wharf and Canada Water below. They serve up a modern French fare and is the ideal place for business meetings or closing that important deal.
Where: Plateau, Canada Place, London, E14 5ER,
The halal: Halal chicken, lamb, and beef can be preordered 72 hours
