Halal Restaurants in Cardiff City Centre


This charming establishment, in the heart of the city centre on St Mary Street, offers a rich tapestry of Turkish flavours. Lezzet means flavour in Turkish, and you get this on the menu, which is halal. There’s a selection of kebabs, mezzes and desserts. The four-course menu, the Sultan’s Feast, is a personal favourite. 

Fat Hippo

Fat Hippo is renowned for juicy burgers and loaded fries. The chicken is certified halal, but the beef is not. The burger restaurant in Cardiff is on Church Street and is available for click-and-collect and delivery. All burgers are served in a toasted brioche with dusted fires. 

Viva Brazil

If you have a big appetite, Viva Brazil is the place for unlimited meats. Well, until you turn your card from green (for go) to red (for stop). Even though it’s fantastic, try not to fill up on the salad island. For the halal eaters, if you call the restaurant five days before visiting, they can get you Halal meats. The restaurant is at the top of St Mary Street and Mill Lane.
