Shrigley’s Moroccan Cuisine
Where? 125 Borough High St, London SE1 1NP
Ah, well, nothing’s greater than finding the best halal restaurants near me, especially when I’m in Central London. As I was staying at Christopher’s Inn The Village in London Bridge, I came across Shrigley’s Moroccan restaurant is fully halal. Being half French and half Moroccan, finding the best halal restaurants for either of these cuisines always gets me as gassed as they come.
Shrigley’s on Borough High Street possibly cooks up the best halal breakfast in London. I’m talking jacket potatoes, halal Full English breakfasts based on turkey bacon and beef sausages, turkey ham omelettes,... For vegetarian and vegan peeps amongst us, lots of options are also available. There’s one thing that Shrigley’s has integrated to the core of their halal food offer, and it’s that London is all-inclusive.
As such, a restaurant that wants customers to be happy should be able to offer all-inclusive meals. Ratatouille with flavorful rice, pasta with halloumi cheese, salmon on toast… This is one of the best and most affordable restaurants in London right there for you, especially considering the huge portions Shrigley’s delivers.

One of the most affordable halal restaurants in London will always remain KFC. Bet you didn’t know that KFC now has over 130 halal restaurants in the UK, right? I am personally a sucker for the best halal burgers in London. If I’d listened to myself, this guide to the most affordable halal restaurants in London would be filled with delicious burgers. But I’ve tried to include a bit of everything, especially for travellers and Londoners looking to eat a bit more healthily slash differently from time to time.
In terms of halal KFC in London, there are currently five branches offering halal burgers and chicken bites. These include the KFC in Tottenham Court Road, Southampton Row (near Holborn), Baker Street, Bishopsgate, and King’s Cross. For all the halal KFC lovers, that’s great news, especially considering that absolutely no pork is handled in the halal branches of the KFC restaurants. Delicious and affordable; can we even do better than that?

Roti King easily ranks as one of the most affordable halal restaurants in London. Beyond that, the recipes of this Malaysian restaurant are all more delicious than the next, and Roti King is a spot that will keep you coming back and again. Have you ever tried Roti Canai? This special signed Roti King is the epitome of Malay cuisine, with roti married to delicious sauces. I’m talking dhal, mutton, and chicken sauces to be slathered onto a crispy and melty roti. An otherworldly experience, in a tiny family-run halal restaurant just off Euston station.
Malay food is always one of my favourite halal foods in London, and affordable at that. And to be fair, if Roti King is an institution of the most affordable halal restaurants in London, there’s a reason for that. The food there is filling and fragrant and makes for an unforgettable memory. My tip? Try the Beef Rendang, or the Nasi Lemak, two of the most famous Malaysian dishes.
