Have you heard of Google?? You can do something as simple as doing a search with your computer.

It is no secret where HALAL restaurants are located.

Surely people attending any mosque you visit can also recommend a place to eat too. Even your hotel can probably find you a place to eat not far from where you are staying.

It has been too many years since I have been to London for something current but I could find a halal restaurant if I ever wanted one. Same for most any other cuisines serving food.

You won't starve in London!

Hi most of the restaurants in London that are in areas with a very high Muslim population now do serve halal meat and definitely the Indian and Turkish restaurants do. If you do go to Brick Lane in East London there are dozen of restaurants with Indian / Bangladesh cuisine. Nandos have got 70 restaurants in London which serve only halal meat and you can obtain the list from their website to see if any is near your hotel.

Also KFC only use halal chicken if you are after fast food. In Most restaurants around Whitechapel, Bethnal Green, and most of the East End you will find a place to eat halal meat.

And yes you are not going to starve in London. :)

@karazyal: ok, I am new, so I maybe don't know the code of conduct here. But since it is a website for travellers with a forum to ask and answer questions I find your remark about "go and google" absolutely uncalled for.

'I find your remark about "go and google" absolutely uncalled for."

Better grow a thicker skin! It's an obvious simple solution to get quick information on just about anything! Why be offended with a solution many people throughout the world use every second of the day?? It takes less time to do a quick Google search than type up a question or complain about something. (Of course you still have to research any Google type advice for accuracy and updates.)

Google is simple immediate advice for many questions you may have in your travel. Use it for hotel advice, use it for "how to get from one city to another city" type questions, even scams to avoid too!

1. When you opened the above link for HALAL restaurants there must have been hundreds of suggestions available. You did open the link - didn't you?

2. Was the suggestion to ask your hotel front desk people where to go for food a bad suggestion?? Since you are the only one who knows where your hotel is located and London is a huge city!

3. Was the suggestion for you to ask for information at mosque a bad suggestion?

My post did answer your question which said "...provide me with suitable solutions!!"

Oh @karazyal, you might like to look for new glasses :-) I wasn't the original poster :-)

And as for the thick skin: oh, I have that. But in any forums I am registered at there is at least a basic friendly tone and not such a steamroller one you have. But maybe, in your case, this has a reason :-)

Well Ms. Trekki I am sorry you are offended for someone else being informed that doing a Google search can be helpful too. (You did open the sample link from the Google search - the one with hundreds of restaurant suggestions - right?) Why would recommending someone do a Google search be offensive?

There is lots of things to be offended by in this world but suggesting someone do a Google search shouldn't be one!

Quoting karazyal

Why would recommending someone do a Google search be offensive?

Because the manner in which you bring such a recommendation matters.

Observe the difference between:

Using a search engine like Google should provide you with a good starting point for this information.

and

Have you heard of Google?? You can do something as simple as doing a search with your computer.

The second has a high chance of being interpreted as being condescending or maybe even combative, instead of being helpful. Since it's an explicit goal of this forum to be a friendly and pleasant place, paying some attention to these nuances matters, even if the factual content of your message is the same.

Geez - I thought everyone who has a smartphone or computer has heard of Google before! I didn't know there are some people who don't know about this. Glad to stand corrected!

"Have you heard of Google?? You can do something as simple as doing a search with your computer." (Sounds like good practical advice to me!)

"Then there are some people who want other people to do all the research for them."
