When it comes to the UK’s Halal food and drinks industry, Southall in west London requires little introduction. With a predominantly South Asian community, it’s not for nothing that this area is affectionately known as ‘Little Punjab’ or ‘Little India’.

Boasting an incredibly exciting array of cuisines ranging from fast food takeaways and burger joints, to curry houses and dessert parlours, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of 26 restaurants, takeaways, and butchers for you to explore.

THE SHAHI NAN KABAB

HALAL STATUS Fully Halal

The Shahi Nan Kabab, “Originally of Southall Bridge. Est 1969” – 88 High Street, Southall UB1 3DB

If there’s one eatery that’s quintessentially Southall, you’d be hard-pressed to look past The Shahi Nan Kabab on 88 High Street.

Shahi Naan Nan Kebab Kabab Pakistani Southall Halal restaurantWhile there are four branches in the district, if you haven’t read our article History of The Shahi Nan Kabab in Southall & the controversy, then this particular restaurant is run by the son’s owner of the famed original that was once located atop station bridge on South Road.

Following its sad demolishment in 2017, the family, who for years have been affectionately referred to as the ‘Bridge Walleh’, eventually moved to where they currently are; and they haven’t looked back since.

From a review face-off we conducted last year between the three main branches, we rated 88’s classic kabab rolls an impressive 4.5/5, while concluding that “both the kababs and the famed chilli sauce were as close to the original as memory serves”. These kababs were also shortlisted for our #FtLionAwards ‘Best Grill’ 2021.

Perhaps the most important news is that their famous chilli sauce has finally been bottled-up for purchase at their restaurant, albeit 50 years later.
