You can find the best halal takeaway food by researching all of the available options and testing them out. In doing this, you will gain firsthand experience of what takeaway menus match both your tastes and your budget. Taste and budget are the two most important factors to bear in mind when selecting the best halal takeaway food because, ultimately, you want to enjoy your food and you do not want to go bankrupt in the process.

In deciding to eat halal food only, you have made the first tough decision in terms of narrowing down the available takeaway food providers. Being halal or not is defined by Islamic law. This means the food you buy must not contain pork or alcohol products. It must also only contain meat that has been slaughtered according to Islamic law. This is usually with a knife to the main arteries in the neck, and then the animal is allowed to bleed to death.

The number of outlets for halal takeaway food depends on the Muslim population of the area. If there are few Muslims or few people in general, then there are likely to be fewer options. You might even find out that there is only one option. If this is the case, then the decision has been made for you. If you do not know if a takeaway outlet is halal or not, ask.


Next, consider three important options. First, how far are you willing to go to pick up your halal takeaway food? Remember that it would be nice if the food was still hot by the time you got home. Second, what is your budget? And third, what types of halal takeaway food do you like?

These three questions will naturally narrow down the options significantly. Next, visit each of the takeaway food outlets from your shortlist and request a menu. Most takeaway companies are only too happy to provide customers with menus. Take a look at what food they offer and at what prices. Rule out any companies that do not offer food you like or are prohibitively expensive.

The best way of deciding what the best halal takeaway food is involves trying it for yourself. Try each takeaway food outlet in turn and compare how each does in terms of your favorite meals, service, packaging and how long it takes to prepare meals. You will soon decide that certain outlets are better or worse than others. When you find the best for you, you can be safe in the knowledge that the others are inferior to your tastes.
