You know what makes us really happy? Having authentic halal local food in Hong Kong! That includes dim sum, roast duck… Unfortunately, it’s impossible to head to Islamic centre canteen for every single meal so we’ve compiled a guide to local halal-certified food in Hong Kong!
1. Islamic Centre Canteen
No visit to Hong Kong is complete without having a dim sum feast and the good news is you can try authentic halal dim sum! At Islamic Centre Canteen, you’ll find almost every type of dim sum available. Get ready to feast on Siu Mai (烧卖), Har Gow (虾饺), Xiao Long Pao (上海小笼包), Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken in Lotus Leaf (糯米珍珠鸡) and so much more!
Although it’s a little confusing to walk from the MTR, we promise it’s worth it. DO NOT, we repeat, DO NOT, leave Hong Kong without trying this!
Opening Hours: Breakfast & Lunch (Halal Dim Sum): 10am – 3pm, Dinner (Halal Cantonese Dishes): 6 – 9pm
Address: 5th floor, Osman Ramju Sadick Islamic Centre, 40 Oi Kwan Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
2. Islam Food
If you have to pick only one dish at Islam Food, let it be the veal goulash. So crispy and juicy, you’ll be wanting more! But do be careful as you take your first bite, the stew is hot and it may squirt.
Other local dishes we would recommend include the chicken with sesame sauce and beef dumplings.
#HHWT tip: It’s best to visit Islam Food with your friends and family so that you can try a wider range of dishes! Also, if you dislike crowded eateries, try to avoid the 12-2pm lunch peak period.

3. Wai Kee
Wai Kee has one of the best duck rice in Hong Kong. The best part? It’s halal! Imagine brown crispy skin and tender duck meat… The flavor and aroma of the roast duck is something you’ll never forget. How we wish we could have this right now!
If there’s still room in your tummy after, do try their lamb curry, it’s superb!
Opening Hours: 10am – 6pm

4. Ma’s Restaurant
Beef goulash. You’ll find this on every diner’s table in Ma’s Restaurant. As you sink your teeth into this fried-to-perfection pastry, get ready for super juicy minced beef and steaming flavorful soup to fill your mouth. Need we say more?
Opening Hours: 11.30am – 11.00pm
Address: Shop A, 21-25 Cheung Sha Wan Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong
