2016 Halal Restaurant Openings in London

A record 200+ restaurants opened in London this year marking the end of the ‘golden age’ of the culinary scene. But there was also a record number of closures too with around 80!

With such intense competition and the economic plight created by Brexit, it took bravery and nerves of steel to open an eatery in the Capital.

Notable restaurant closures included Michelin Star Hibiscus, The Truscott Arms and Fitzrovia’s Piquet, all of which barely lasted a year.

On the other hand, the “Muslim Pound” continued its impressive growth with just under a 100 Halal-oriented restaurants.

There was also a number of closures across the saturated “gourmet” burger scene that included Meatcetera in West London, and Three Bros in the South.

The East of London, however, leads the way after outside the Central with the opening of 26 restaurants, followed well behind by the south with 12, 10 in the north and 8 in the west.
