Every year we run a poll to find out who our readers think is the best halaal restaurant in Cape Town. 2018 has been monumental in the halaal scene in South Africa. We have seen more restaurant chains recognise the benefits of going halaal and accessing the untapped Muslim market. The votes are now in and we are ready to announce the favourite Halaal Restaurant in Cape Town as voted for by you.


If you’ve participated on the blog or one of the Hungry for Halaal social media platforms, thank you for your vote. A winner has been drawn and will be enjoying a luxury weekend for 2 at the Southern Light Guesthouse in Constantia.
