New name. Great food. We all three had the weekend buffet and it was amazing. Everything is fresh and delicious! Great to sit and eat halal in a busy fun restaurant! Check out the store next door. Great selection.

After moving to Phoenix, Chef Mamoona Hilal felt like the city was lacking in delicious halal options. She wondered if she could create her own menu of mouthwatering Pakistani, Afghani and Indian cuisines with affordable rates. It started off as Tahoora Grill, and Phoenix fell in love with its flavourful and exotic dishes. And for those looking for a halal food that tastes like heaven on their tongues, Tahoora Grill was a godsend. Around half a decade later, the restaurant got a new look and a new name: Hilal Grill. Same good food under a new banner! From grilled meats, rich curries and spicy biryanis to seafood fusions, all-veg entrees, and fruity lassis, it’s a literal feast for even the choicest palate. For the South-Asians in Phoenix, it’s a trip back home for a fraction of the cost you’d have to pay for a plane ticket. And for those who’ve yet to try out exotic flavor. Hilal Grill is the perfect place to tickle your taste-buds and become a fan.
