Celebrated the Halal's 75th Anniversary Year with18 pals.

18 old office pals and i went for our annual Christmas lunch. Never to be disappointed; fantastic value, great food and atmosphere. Not for those who want posh dining just for those who love authentic Indian curry. For some this was our 46th annual visit, coinciding with the Halal's 75th... read more

This dish is bordering on sublime, no not bordering, it IS sublime. You will never taste a more authentic dish in your curry eating life. The tarka dall is up there too with chili and roasted garlic topping off the dish. Unbeatable at any price and this is cheap!

This Indian does not fail to impress. Every meal that has been ordered is First Class. Once you visit a few times the owner and waiter that is on every Saturday night that we have visited, make a point of coming up to welcome us and shake us by the hand. This is as well as when you enter the... More

The food is reasonable and probably as good as you will get in the area. Wide menu. Nothing fancy in terms of decor. Not far from Aldgate.

Quiet place, service was ok. We tried different dishes and everything was tasty. The price is moderate, if you are looking for a cheap Indian restaurant this is the place for you. The venue is not in a turistic area but it was worth a 15 minutes walk from the tower of London.

Decor may look tired to some but the food is good and the staff very welcoming and great value for money as well. Well worth a try if in your in the Aldgate area, just don't be put off by the looks.

Have eaten here several times over the years and for a straightforward no frills curry this is a place to consider. The food is very reasonably priced and very tasty. They serve all the classic dishes (with a few specials which I can't remember ever having changed). A great option for a quick, inexpensive curry fix. And there are good... More

Generally Indian food is catered for the travellers, but if you want real home like Indian food get yourself over to Halal Restaurant. I always say I don't mind the price so long as the food is great and here you get the best food at a very good price. The staff and owners are so friendly, pleasant and welcoming... More

Being Malaysian, I try to find Halal food. I stumbled across this place while strolling down London on a business trip. I was intrigued and went in. I was very happy I did. Both food and service is amazing.

This purports go be the oldest Indian in London. If that's the case then it has survived on giving the customer what they want, good food and service at, for Central. London is a good price. As this place is near my work I have been repeatedly over 20 years and the place has always delivered. The only slight draw... More
