Halal Gems is the home of halal foodies. A service that helps you find great places to eat. Finding halal food in the right kind of atmosphere is important to us.
Our vision is a world where we as diners have complete transparency about what we are eating. A world where the label 'halal' is synonymous with high quality, organic ingredients that take the environment into consideration. To start this revolution we aim to create conversations about what we're all eating. We celebrate halal dining in three ways:
1) Our Restaurant Finder will deliver you ideas for places to eat, get some good takeaway, or have food delivered to where you are
2) The first interactive digital magazine for halal diners. Download your free copy here
Our Magazine has been Top 10 in the App Store in 18 countries
3) Gem Hunters who share their most amazing foodie experiences with you here
We're all about great dining experiences. Have a seat at our table and join in the meal!
Currently we cover the UK, the UAE and selected other cities from around the world. We're growing fast though, so follow us on Instagram, Twitter or join our mailing list to find out when we launch new cities.

There are lots of definitions of what the Arabic word 'halal' means. The Muslim community is diverse and each person has their own belief about what 'halal' means. Check out Halal Gems Magazine where you can find out more information.
Some people want their halal meat certified by a particular authority. Some people believe meat isn't halal unless animals are organically raised and free range. Some people don't want alcohol in the room where they dine. Some people don’t mind. The same goes for a whole lot of religious, cultural, and personal preferences. Halal Gems offers you a chance to read a comment on what halal means at a particular restaurant, sourced from the restaurant itself.
Our 'halal status' box provides an opportunity for restaurants to be transparent about their supply chain. You can find a good example here.
We’re here to make sure you’ve got all the options you need. When you’re empowered with that information, you can decide what you’d like to do.
Any restaurant that caters to a halal lifestyle is welcome to join. We include any restaurant which serves halal meat, or vegetarian cuisine. If you can't find your favourite restaurant here or have a suggestion, add it here. We're all grateful for you sharing your recommendations!
Nope. That was an easy one!
The Halal Gems service is free for restaurants to register and post their details. The whole point is to give them a way to give information to foodies. So we make that as easy as possible.
Restaurants can pay for a premium mebership where they can upload their own photos and post as many offers to Halal Gems diners as they want. For more information email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are invited to try restaurants all the time, and would love to meet you and try your food. One thing we're very clear on is that we don't post Gem Hunter reviews for every restaurant we visit, only those which stand out or are particularly innovative or ethical. When we visit we're sure you'll have us captivated at your story, ambiance and food, but please don't expect a full written review.
Soon enough you'll experience a meal good enough to write about. And when that day comes, we'll be waiting to hear about it.
On the Halal Gems Restaurant Finder App, tap on 'Leave a Review'. Oh the joy of sharing foodie experiences!
If its a negative review, post that up too. We all need to be warned about scary food.
Our tech team love fixing things. Please contact them using our contact form here.

Again, we'd recommend you send your contact details too. We have been known to send appreciation to people who make suggestions, and it usually tastes great.
Your positive comments cause a happiness glow that lasts a long, long time. Its a bigger high for us than a perfectly cooked Thai Green Curry. And we love Thai Green Curry. Please send us your comments here.
Sometimes when making an amazing meal we don't add enough salt. It sucks. But we can always work on fixing it.
Thank you for being moved enough to complain. Whatever your complaint, we'll deal with it in 24 hours. Please let us know what the issue is using our contact form here. Please also tell us how we can get in touch with you to follow up.
