1. Mutton Biryani Special (Monday and Friday) at Muslim Restaurant (190 THB)
Legendary Muslim Restaurant has been serving halal food in Bangkok since the 1940s. The restaurant is located not too far from Haroon Mosque, on Charoen Krung Road, a well-known street with plenty of good dining options. Muslim Restaurant is quite famous, known for being one of the best halal restaurants in Bangkok and serving a killer biryani. Their “normal” biryani is served every day which you can choose between chicken (80 THB), fish (140 THB) or mutton (180 THB), and on Mondays and Fridays, they also serve a slow-roasted mutton biryani special (190 THB) which is even tastier and tender! The biryanis are served with a mint dressing and a delicious eggplant curry.
Other delicious halal Bangkok food at Muslim Restaurant: Mutton Dhalcha (170 THB), Fried Mutton (160 THB) and Mattaba (50 THB.)

2. Beef Masala at Home Cuisine Islamic Restaurant (95 THB)
Another popular halal restaurant in Bangkok, and one that competes with Muslim Restaurant on whose serving the best biryani in Bangkok. To be honest, I like the one at Muslim Restaurant the most as it is more tender and juicy. But Home Cuisine Islamic Restaurant also serves some tasty halal Bangkok food. So is their beef masala (95 THB) incredibly rich, and a good choice. Or their Dhalcha Curry with tender chicken drumstick (86 THB). Order some roti on the side, to dip your last bits of curry away.

3. Daood Bacha at Nadimos (260 THB)
Nadimos is a popular restaurant that serves delicious Lebanese specialities. The restaurant has two branches, one in Sukhumvit Soi 40 and the other one located inside Holiday Inn Silom. The menu is extensive, with classics such as shawarma, falafel and hummus. If you are looking for some extraordinary flavours, I would highly recommend one of their signatures called Daood Bacha: grilled heavily spiced meatballs served in a light garlicky tomato sauce. If you have a larger appetite, you should order one of the large mixed grill platters. Other recommended dishes are the Kebab Khachkhach (280 THB) and Falafel (150 THB).

With six branches, Beirut Restaurant is perhaps the most popular halal restaurant in Bangkok. Their twenty-four-page menu offers a huge variety of Lebanese halal food in Bangkok. One of the bestsellers is the Mixed Grill (300 THB), a mix of grilled kebabs and skewers served with grilled veggies, French fries, pita bread and dipping sauces. The meat has an intense and distinctive grill flavour, which is simply delicious. Other tasty halal options are the Hummus with Shawarma Chicken (200 THB) and Zaatar & Cheese (150 THB).

5. Chicken Boti at BBQ Delight (150 THB)
Don’t judge a book by its cover. BBQ Delight is an Indian restaurant that does not have the fancy looks, but the barbecued halal food they serve is something special. The friendly owner explained to me that he butcher the chicken himself, assuring me it was the freshest the meat possible could be. But what’s even more special is the deep smokey flavour of the skewers and kebabs they serve here. The Chicken Boti (150 THB) is spicier than the colourful Green Masala Chicken (160 THB), which is like the Chicken Boti, one of their bestsellers. Another tasty alternative at this halal restaurant is the Seekh Kebab (220 THB), which is a minced beef kebab skewer with a deep smokey flavour as well. BBQ Delight is located in Si Phraya.

6. Khao Mok Neua at Areesa Lote Dee (65 THB)
Looking for halal food near Khao San Road? Areesa Lote Dee is your best option. This small local restaurant serves some of the tastiest Khao Mok Neua in Bangkok, which is Indian style rice with stewed beef. During lunch hours, the restaurant is packed with locals enjoying this tasty dish and if you visit this restaurant too late, the stewed beef is often sold out. The Indian style rice is also available with a chicken drumstick, but in my opinion, the stewed beef is so much tastier. Another tasty option is the Kuay Teow Gaeng (40 THB), which is a chicken noodle soup with a deep peanut flavour.
