Today we look at 4 halal restaurants with English menus in the Shinjuku area.

'Halal' refers to things that are permissible to use or do in accordance with Muslim teachings. In other words, a restaurant that serves halal food, is one that serves food that Muslim individuals can consume while remaining in line with the teachings of their faith.

The number of Muslim visitors and residents in Japan has increased in recent years, and with it so have the number of establishments needed to cater to their specific needs, especially dietary ones. Unfortunately, this number is still fairly small, and it can take some time to find such a restaurant, much less one that has menus available in other languages. With this in mind, we have gathered here a list of 4 halal restaurants with foreign language menus in the Shinjuku area. These restaurants all have both lunch and dinner service too, making them all convenient.

1. Shinjuku Gyoen Ramen Ouka


First up is Shinjuku Gyoen Ramen Ouka. Unlike the majority of soups served in Japan, which are made using beef or pork, Shinjuku Gyoen Ramen Ouka uses tai, (red sea bream), based broth. No pork products whatsoever are used at their restaurant, making it a great choice for Muslims wanting to try Japanese ramen.

An interesting point of this restaurant is that it is a tachigui shop; in other words, a traditional style standing-room only restaurant. Common for noodle restaurants, this is a great way to try a Japanese tradition while enjoying halal service all at once.

2. Uskudar


Uskudar is a Turkish restaurant located next to Shinjuku Station. The owner is Turkish, and the restaurant is a popular place to eat authentic Turkish cuisine. Everything on the menu here is halal, with all meats prepared accordingly, including the necessary prayers involved.

The Turkish kebab is one of the world's most famous dishes. At Uskudar they offer the doner kebab (meat that has been slow roasted and then thinly sliced), shish kebab, and many other varieties of kebabs.
