If you're on the hunt for the best halal eats in Düsseldorf, looking through the limited options can be a bit of a challenge.

Thankfully, we've removed the guesswork by compiling this list of the best 9 halal restaurants in the city.

From Turkish charcoal-grilled Adana Kebab to delicious crispy Lebanese falafels, this article will surprise you with the amazing halal options available in Düsseldorf!

Top Halal Restaurants In Dusseldorf, Germany

Dene & Gor

Unlike the lackluster kebabs you'll find outside nightclubs, these are the real deal.

We found each kebab to be huge for the price, filled with meat that's nicely charred yet tender.

The hot chili sauce went very well with the chicken, they gave lots of fresh salad inside a crispy bread. Crispy and fluffy fries, fresh off the fryer, really hit the spot.

Don't worry about the queues too, because we realized they go down quickly as the staff work methodically like bees.

📍 Graf-Adolf-Straße 58, 40210 Düsseldorf, Germany

3H's Burger & Chicken

We asked around for the best halal burger joint in town, and were unanimously pointed to 3H's Burger & Chicken.

The three H's apparently stand for halal, handmade and homemade - and they offer the choice between juicy chicken or beef patties.

The burger buns are surprisingly soft and made from their own recipe. The fries may look rustic and roughly cut, but they tasted fantastic and expertly seasoned.

And then, there's their secret sauce — spicy, sweet, and utterly addictive. Pair it with a side of their chicken fingers, and you won't be disappointed.

Jaipur Prime Restaurant

I love Indian food, and it happens that our favorite Indian restaurant in Düsseldorf serves 100% halal food.

Don't expect Jaipur Prime Restaurant to be a typical place that serves watered-down Indian dishes; my Indian friends vouch for their authenticity, claiming it's the closest you can get in Düsseldorf. 

The sauces that come with papadam (crisps made with lentil flour) as a starter are always popular.

The Tandoori Chicken and Kashmiri Rogan Josh are incredibly tender and bursting with flavor.

I highly recommend going with a group so you can share and taste a variety of dishes – including vegetarian dishes – and book ahead because they're often packed.

📍 Alexanderstraße 35, 40210 Düsseldorf, Germany

Anfora

For a halal fine dining experience, Anfora is a must-visit. They use fresh, quality ingredients, and the menu has plenty of options for vegetarians too.

The inside is beautifully decorated, featuring a wall displaying records by Turkish musicians.

The staff were quick and super friendly to our group, helping us pick out what we wanted. 

We started with their mercimek (Lentil Soup), which was comforting and delicious. And I always go for the Adana Kebab for my main course — it's juicy and flavorful.

And for dessert, I recommend a cup of Turkish tea and Baklava (a sweet, flaky pastry soaked in syrup). Oh, and the kunefe, a Turkish sweet cheese dessert, is also the best I've ever had!

📍 Hüttenstraße 11, 40215 Düsseldorf, Germany

Taco Ranch

If you're in the mood for a tasty casual Mexican meal without breaking the bank, Taco Ranch is the spot.

You can get a combo meal with two tacos for €8, which includes fries and a drink – quite a fair deal for a full meal. They also serve up amazing burritos and nacho chips too, like Taco Bell but better tasting.

This is a fast food restaurant, so don't expect any frills, although we were impressed by the clean premises and friendly staff.

📍 Duisburger Str. 24, 40477 Düsseldorf, Germany

Tengri Tagh Uigur Restaurant

Discovering Uyghur cuisine at Tengri Tagh Uigur Restaurant was a pleasant surprise for us. It's a mixture of Turkish, Indian, Chinese and many more other cuisine.

We tried the Laghman, traditional noodles smothered in a tasty lamb and vegetable sauce, and it was a hit.

The sut chai (milk tea) was refreshing, as instead of being served with sugar, it's boiled with salt, so it's salty! Nonetheless it was quite delicious.

If you generally like Asian dishes, I can assure you’ll enjoy the dishes at Tengri Tagh Uigur Restaurant.

📍 Oststraße 120, 40210 Düsseldorf, Germany

Sannin

Sannin is said to serve up genuine Lebanese dishes, prepared with the traditional ingredients straight from Lebanon - and you can really taste it.

While the restaurant might seem small and initially give off a fast-food vibe, the food is surprisingly fantastic. I can recommend the falafel sandwich and the shish tawook with the traditional Arabic bread.

The portions are generous, and the prices are fair. On our visit, we shared a starter and a main, and with drinks included, the bill was under €30!

📍 Kölner Str. 61, 40211 Düsseldorf, Germany

Schwarzes Meer Restaurant

We had an amazing time at Schwarzes Meer, a cozy and beautiful Turkish/Mediterranean Restaurant. We opted for outdoor seating with a candle and a blanket, creating a romantic atmosphere.

I chose the Karışık Balık Buğlama, a stewed sea bass, with a glass of white wine from the Black Sea. Despite the full house, the staff remained friendly, even bringing a plate of Turkish sweets as a complimentary treat.

I was a little worried about the bill, but prices were actually really reasonable, considering that food quality and quantity far exceeded expectations!

📍 Graf-Adolf-Straße 60, 40210 Düsseldorf, Germany

Bona'me

Bona'me is a great place for a halal Turkish breakfast in Düsseldorf.

We took a spontaneous dive into the menu and tried a bit of everything, all freshly prepared at the counters. Our picks included the pide (a Turkish "pizza"), lamb kebab, and of course, Turkish tea.

Once you get the hang of their ordering system (they hand you a card, you place your order at the counter, snag a vibrating token for when your meal's ready, and pay up at the end), you can kick back in the square outside, enjoying the waterfront views.

The food isn't just tasty, it won't break the bank either, especially considering it's right on Kasernenstraße.

📍 Kasernenstraße 39-49, 40213 Düsseldorf, Germany

Understanding Halal Food And Halal Restaurants

Definition Of Halal Food And Restaurants

Halal food refers to any food that complies with Islamic Sharia law and is typically consumed by practicing Muslims.

It means "permissible" in Arabic, and the guidelines for halal food include the method of slaughtering animals, the source of ingredients, and the absence of certain prohibited substances. [1]

Halal restaurants are establishments that serve halal food, adhering to these specific requirements. They provide a safe and trusted option for Muslims who want to enjoy a meal outside without compromising their dietary restrictions.
