Aladin Mess

If you want a cosy place to eat amidst the busy streets of Causeway Bay, head to Aladin Mess (yes, one “d”!). Located right next to Times Square, the restaurant serves up authentic Indian cuisine. Be sure to try the brisket masala served with one or more of the soft naans – such a yummy mix of tastes and textures.

Islamic Centre Canteen

Islamic Centre Canteen

Be sure to get to the Islamic Centre Canteen nice and early; it’s rated among the best halal dim sum places in Hong Kong, and only serves dim sum until 3pm! The food is delicious, of course – and don’t overlook the Cantonese menu; plenty of diners consider the steamed dumplings such as siew mai and har kow a must-try!

Istanbul Kebab

Craving Mediterranean cuisine? Head down to Istanbul Kebab where not only do they serve mouthwatering kebabs, they also serve traditional Turkish dishes, done their way. It’s also the only halal restaurant that opens 24 hours in Hong Kong! Another tip: try the fruity Turkish tea for washing down the highly raved-about doner kebab.

Wai Kee

Not only is it just a seven-minute walk from Causeway Bay Station, but it’s said by many customers that you cannot leave Hong Kong without trying the roast duck delicacy at this store. Wai Kee is known as the best halal roast duck stall in the territory! And if you still have more space in your tummy after, try the lamb curry too.

The Sultan’s Table

If you’re looking to treat yourself to Middle Eastern cuisine at a classy restaurant, this is the perfect place. Be sure to taste the cold mezze appetizers, especially the quirkily named “Little Little in the Middle”. Those who prefer a meat platter won’t want to miss the tasty beef and lamb grills instead!

Le Souk

Le Souk might just be the best Middle Eastern eatery in Hong Kong. Not only is the food heavenly, but the energy of the restaurant is reminiscent of the NYC restaurant scene of the 1990s. The mezze platter is a great dish for tasting a little bit of everything. You’ll also want to sample the lamb tagine, a staple of Morocco, and the Egyptian mixed grill, a large plate of barbecued morsels ideal for meat lovers.

Head down to Islam Food where authentic Chinese food is served along with other Asian dishes including curry lamb chops, juicy beef cakes and more. While it might be a little further for some to go, this place is not to be missed!

This popular restaurant serves yummy and authentic halal Xinjiang dishes at affordable prices.
