Some restaurants serve pork dishes, but they clearly show that on their menus. Those restaurants would be in hotels. In supermarkets, non-halal sections are separated from the rest of the supermarket and clearly signed as being so and for non-Muslims.

Of course everyting is halal in accordance to the shaafi following of islam... So dont be alarmed if you see things on the menu that you dont think are halal i.e lobster, crabs etc..

Pork is available but it is seperated from other meats..
