Halal Food🍴

Anyone who’s familiar with London knows that there is no shortage of halal food here!

Click on the list of campuses below for halal restaurants/takeaways nearby handpicked by some of Imperial ISoc’s very best food critics.

1. South Kensington

2. Charing Cross

3. St Mary's Hospital

Another option is to download apps such as: Uber Eats, Deliveroo or Just Eat and use the Halal filters to find halal food.

If you fancy cooking some dishes yourself, remember that a lot of major supermarkets sell packaged Halal meat, the nearest ones to SK Campus are:

 

Sainsburys (Earl’s Court) – SW5 9QQ
Tesco (West Ken) – W14 8PB

Halal food is available in many college outlets, for example, Fusion and Loud Bird (SAF), however, please check with staff as there may be a mix of halal and non-halal items on offer.

If you don’t mind going on a bit of a trek for halal food make sure to visit places like Tooting and Whitechapel which have large Muslim communities and some of the best restaurants in the city. If you aren’t familiar with the area you are in, there are some great apps/websites to find local halal places to eat. These include:

- Zabiha
- Scan Halal
