Having stayed in Paris last year, I get these questions quite frequently: Is there halal food in Paris? Where can I eat there?

There are actually quite a lot of halal food eateries in Paris –especially kebab and fast-food stands. Here are some halal (no alcohol served either) food restaurants if you do not want to eat (or had enough of) kebabs ?

1. Tilal

Tilal is a Lebanese cuisine restaurant nestled right in the very heart of Châtelet Les Halles. Châtelet is in the first arrondisement, or district, of Paris, and is a shopping haven. Near to the Centre Georges Pompidou, Tilal is definitely convenient to pause for a quick bite, have a lunch, or even dinner.

2. Restaurant Sahil

A Pakistani-Indian restaurant at Gare de l’Est, I have been to Sahil numerous times, for a Pakistani-Indian food fix. They have all sorts of curries, masalas, briyanis, tandooris, naans - a long menu with something for everyone. The pictures here do not do justice. Gare de l’Est feels a bit like Little India, with many Bangladeshi, Pakistani, and Indian restaurants and shops. Sahil’s fare is very reasonably priced; you could get a meal for 6€. Its décor is homey and warm; you will immediately feel at ease here.

3. Le Wok Saint Germain

Le Wok Saint Germain is a Thai fusion restaurant, located in the hip neighborhood of Odéon/Saint Michel. It serves Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese cuisine. Le Wok also is an AVS-certified (halal certification body) eatery. Here, what is unique is that there is an open wok station right in the entry of the restaurant! Customers can choose what ingredient goes into their fried noodles or rice, and see the chef whipping it up right away, or they could also order off the menu.

Soupe poulet thai avec lait du coco: Perfect combination of spicy, salty and sour, this Thai coconut milk soup with chicken. The lemongrass and cilantro used really brings out the flavour of the soup. A marvellous treat! * Recommended dish
