Looking for the best Halal haunts in Singapore, mama? Trot around the island with our list in hand and start ticking off these halal restaurants!
More and more eateries here in Singapore are going the halal route to accommodate our Muslim friends. With a plethora of halal restaurants there’s no shortage of halal fare in a variety of cuisines all over our little island! Here you’ll find our ultimate guide to all the best Muslim-friendly food that this Little Red Dot has to offer – some MUIS Halal-certified, some halal-friendly and some Muslim-owned.
But firstly, what is ‘halal’? According to the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS):
‘Halal’ is an Arabic word which means lawful or allowable. Any food or drink which falls under this category is permitted for consumption. Most food and drinks are considered Halal unless they are stated clearly in the Quran (holy book of Islam) and Hadith (prophetic sayings) as forbidden or non-Halal.
And what constitutes non-Halal?
‘Non-Halal’, also traditionally known as ‘Haram’, means unlawful or unallowable. As the name implies, any food or drink which is classified as non-Halal is prohibited for consumption. In general, all harmful things are non-Halal. Examples of these include the meat of dead animals and birds, flesh of swine (pork), intoxicating drugs and alcoholic beverages.
- MUIS Halal-certified establishments use halal ingredients and do not serve alcohol, whether in drinks or food. A restaurant chain would need to apply for MUIS Halal certification for all their outlets in order for them to be MUIS Halal-certified. This means that even if one outlet is MUIS Halal-certified, another outlet by the same restaurant chain isn’t, necessarily.
- Halal-friendly restaurants can be classified as establishments that serve halal food with halal ingredients, but may offer alcoholic drinks.
- Muslim-owned restaurants are exactly what the name implies – restaurants owned by Muslims. Generally the understanding is that these Muslim owners should be responsible enough to serve their customers halal food that they wouldn’t doubt consuming themselves.

Excelling in North Indian and Indian Chinese cuisine, we love Copper Chimney’s various flavours (thanks to the fresh spices flown straight from the motherland). Starters come in the form of the flavourful Masala Roomali, a thin bread filled with onions and tomato, and Kurkuri Bhindi (crispy, deep fried lady’s fingers). Tuck into a few delicious mains, like the Chilli Cheese Naan, Chicken Lababdar (a sort of butter-chicken-and-curry combo) and Salmon Fish Masala, which is cooked to perfection in Copper Chimney’s custom made tandoor. The Triple Szechwan Rice is a particularly memorable dish, made by frying long-grain rice, hakka noodles, and spicy gravy to create the perfect hotplate of comfort food. Conveniently located right opposite Mustafa Centre, Copper Chimney’s main restaurant it makes for the perfect hangout pre- or post-Mustafa shopping!

Hajjah Mariam Café
We’ve covered so much international cuisine, but where’s the Malay food?! We saved one of the best for last with this hidden treasure in Westgate Shopping Mall. Hajjah Mariam offers one of the best nasi ambeng platters in Singapore. Don’t know what that is? Once you find out you’ll never go back. According to Hajjah Mariam, “Nasi Ambeng is a fragrant rice dish consisting of white rice prepared with meat, vegetables, fried coconut flesh, Sambal Goreng as well as other dishes. It’s a popular Javanese-Malay cuisine that’s normally seen during festivities and served on a tray and enjoyed together in a tray that serves up to 6 people. It is only natural to eat Nasi Ambeng by hand and it is supposed to signify togetherness and peace at meal times.” It’s exactly what it sounds like mama – two to six people huddled around a large tray of rice and traditional Malay dishes feasting away with their hands (it’s the best way to eat!). They also provide cutlery if you prefer.
