Vice & Virtue

For halal fine dining in Leeds, look no further than hitting up award-winning restaurant and bar Vice & Virtue. The eatery is fronting seasonally-changing menus and serves up MasterChef-worthy dishes, with the appropriately prepared meats available if you give them a day's notice.


Walk into Zaap and you'll be greeted by numerous Thai street signs and flags, various hanging lanterns and a full-sized tuktuk. It's bizarre and brilliant, setting the mood perfectly for a fun evening of authentic food with halal meats.

Abyssinia Cafe and Restaurant

This award-winning, traditional Ethiopian venue might be located slightly outside of the city centre, but trust us when we say it's worth the venture. The menu serves a range of vegan and halal-friendly dishes, including tender lemon and ginger chicken leg, smoked lamb and spiced chickpea stew.

Sheesh Mahal

This award-winning Indian eatery has something for everyone because the menu is absolutely mega. Sheesh Mahal's interiors are a bit of an experience as well, with a blue-gold colour scheme running throughout, topped off by Chesterfield sofas and velvet chairs.

Indian Tiffin Room Leeds

Out of the halal restaurants in Leeds city centre, Indian Tiffin Room is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful. Designed with traditional scalloped arches, reclaimed shutters and beautiful wall-hanging flowers, it's a winner. As for the menu, authentic street food is a speciality.


Michelin-recommended Tharavadu serves popular Keralese-inspired dishes, such as chicken dosa (a rice and lentil pancake) and uzhunnu vada (a fried lentil doughnut). If that hasn't won you over, the Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln is a fan. 'Nuff said.
