In the sea of restaurants that now is Manchester city centre, it can be pretty difficult to navigate when you have certain dietary requirements. Be it gluten-free, vegan or even halal. But fear not, ’cause that’s what team Secret Manchester is here for. From classic American diners to some of the best Indian food in the city, here’s our guide to the best halal restaurants in Manchester.
While Archie’s is mostly known as Manchester’s pinkest, most Instagrammable burger joint, it’s actually one of the most halal-friendly, too. Boasting an all-halal menu, guests can tuck into juicy beef burgers, crispy fried chicken, and delicious milkshakes, with tons of incredible toppings such as melted cheese, turkey bacon, moreish BBQ sauce and even Cheetos. Archie’s, 6 & 7, Gateway House, Piccadilly, M1 2GH | 72 Oxford St, M1 5NH | Manchester Arndale, M4 3AD.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷  No. 
One of the city’s favourite spots for Indian and Pakistani cuisine, Zouk Tea Bar serves up a 100% halal menu, meaning diners can rest easy when ordering. Think kebabs, steaks, curries, burgers and more, all given a delicious, South Asian twist. The restaurant also serves up a number of wildcard dishes, too, including their own take on bao buns, an Indian spice-infused Sunday roast and so much more. Zouk Tea Bar, 5, The Quadrangle, Chester St, M1 5QS.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷  Yes.  
Don Giovanni can be found on Manchester’s busy Oxford Street, serving up an array of halal dishes among their traditional Italian menu. While the menu isn’t 100% halal, each dish that is is clearly labelled, with classics such as lasagne, fresh tagliatelle pasta with beef meatballs, rib-eye steak, chicken supreme and chicken pizza among the halal dishes available. Don Giovanni promises that their chicken and beef dishes are halal-friendly. Don Giovanni, Peter House, 1 Oxford St, M1 5AN.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷  Yes. 
Luckily for fried chicken fans, Yard & Coop’s chicken is 100% halal, offering a whopping menu of chicken, chicken and more chicken. Think gloriously golden fried chicken as wings, nuggets, burgers and tenders, with mouthwatering sauces and all-American sides such as mac and cheese, nuggets and even mashed potato. Yard & Coop promises 100% halal chicken, however, please check with the restaurant before ordering other meats. Yard & Coop, 37 Edge St, M4 1HW.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷  Yes. 
Dishoom has long been one of the UK’s favourite Indian restaurants, and luckily for those who follow a halal diet, it serves both lamb and chicken coming from certified halal suppliers. Pork is served for breakfast, however, on the All Day menu, guests can expect delicious halal small plates such as lamb samosas, grilled chicken marinated in flavourful spices, family-style chicken tikka and juicy lamb chops. Dishoom, 32 Bridge St, M3 3BT.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷  Yes. 
Another of Manchester’s best Indian restaurants, Scene Indian Kitchen serves tons of delicious street food dishes, with plenty of halal options available. Think thick, creamy curries packed with chicken and lamb, charcoal-grilled kebabs, seemingly-endless vegetarian-friendly dishes and plenty of chaat. The restaurant also offers a menu of delicious mocktails, too, that perfectly compliment the Indian-inspired menu. Scene Indian Kitchen, 4 New Ct St, M3 3AN.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷  Yes.

Known for their modern take on Delhi dining, Delhi House Cafe is a fantastic spot for warming small plates, with classic plates such as tandoori chicken tikka, masala fried chicken, gunpowder lamb chops, kebabs and more up for grabs. In addition to the classics, Delhi House Cafe has also put a Western spin on some larger dishes, too, including their ‘JFC’ Jama Masjid fried chicken drumsticks, battered fish fingers, butter chicken naan pizza and even an open naan bread burger. All meat is halal. Delhi House Cafe, Unit 10, The Corn Exchange, M4 3TR.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷  Yes. 
Manchester’s very own Salt Bae-style restaurant is quite the theatrical experience and thankfully caters for all steak lovers – including those who eat strictly halal. Think huge juicy steaks dry-aged for 28 days (and in some cases, even covered in 24-carat gold!), Turkish meatballs, huge portions of lamb and juicy burgers. The restaurant serves its steaks tableside in a theatrical manner, which you’ll likely have seen on the internet before as performed by Nusret Gökçe – also known as Salt Bae. Etci Mehmet, Unit 4, The Quadrangle, Chester St, M1 5QS.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷  No. 
The perfect brunch spot for those looking for halal grub, Caramello offers delicious chicken, beef and veggie dishes, making for the perfect way to start the day. From 100% halal brekkies packed with turkey bacon and chicken/beef sausages, to more filling dishes such as fried chicken on waffles and juicy beef burgers, no one will be leaving Caramello’s hungry. If you have more of a sweet tooth, there’s plenty in-store to dial up the sugar factor, too, including fruit french toast, Biscoff french toast, loaded pancakes and even gooey cookies. Caramello of Didsbury, 10 Whitechapel St, Didsbury, M20 6UB.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷  No. 
Evelyn’s has long served some of the best brunch and lunch dishes in the Northern Quarter, but the real bonus? All of their meat is halal. Expect Asian and Middle Eastern influences throughout each dish, such as the kimchi cheeseburger, Middle Eastern chicken, Turkish eggs and Taiwanese-style fried chicken. Evelyn’s, 44 Tib St, M4 1NB.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷  Yes. 
While Doner Haus isn’t strictly a halal restaurant, they do serve a number of halal items – including their Doner and Shawarma dishes. Think delicious kebabs served in sesame seed ‘fladenbro’, and filled with the likes of Berlin doner, chicken shawarma, falafel and vegan schnitzel, served with delicious sauces and fresh fillings such as feta cheese, pickled cabbage, cucumber and tomato. Doner Haus, The Corn Exchange, Exchange St, M4 3TR.
Do they serve alcohol?🍷 Yes.
While, again, not strictly halal, Bem Brasil does offer numerous halal options, meaning those who still want to enjoy the rodizio-style experience do not need to miss out. The halal selection includes sumptuous cuts of lamb, sirloin steak, rib-eye, chicken hearts, lemon chicken and more, meaning you’re sure to leave full after dining at this hidden gem restaurant. Bem Brasil, 58 Lever St, M1 1FJ | King St W, M3 2GQ.
