1. Scarlet Rasoi- Best for Traditional Indian and Thai Food

If you want to enjoy traditional Indian and Thai food with a Western touch, Scarlet Rasoi is the place to count on. 

Scarlet-Rasoi

It is a halal-certified restaurant and serves halal meat, but you can get alcohol as they serve it. 

Prices are decent, ranging from 20 to 30 euros, but they serve tiny portions, and we have to leave the restaurant hungry. 

The staff is insulting as if they have no experience, and you will pay 12.5% for their worst service.  

They also do not have any kids’ menu, so don’t visit it with your family.

Paid parking lot is available, and no booking of the table is required to enjoy the traditional food with Bollywood music in the background. 

They also serve vegan dishes and have outdoor seating as well.

Service hours are 10 to 12 pm from Monday to Thursday, 10 to 11 pm on Friday and Saturday, and 12 to 9 pm on Sunday. 

2. Gaucho at The O2- Best for Steak Tartare 

Gaucho is where you can enjoy the best steaks in the entire UK, much like the culinary delights found at King’s Cross halal restaurants. They cook it perfectly, and it melts in the mouth. You can also enjoy different cocktails from the hand of the bartender Billa.

Their service is impeccable, with smiling and professional servers like Mushtariy, but you have to pay an additional 12.5% as their service charge.

The prices are high; you must pay 60 to 100 euros for dinner and 20 to 30 euros for a drink. 

The restaurant is not entirely halal, but they have halal options, so you should visit Gaucho if you want some halal meat. 

But, to enjoy their steaks, you must reserve a seat beforehand. It is also a children-friendly restaurant, as high chairs are available. 

They offer their services from 12 to 11 pm throughout the week. Paid parking is available.

The staff, such as Cristina, Usha, and  Eleny, are very polite and attentive.

The portions are small compared to the price, as I paid 60 euros for dinner with a 12.5% service charge, which cost around 7 euros.

They also have a good kids’ menu, with mains, drinks, and dessert for £8.  

You can reserve a table online, but they always keep some tables for walk-ins, which are given on a first-come, first-served basis.

For vegans, a special plant-based menu and gluten-free burgers are available. Only the chicken-based items are halal in the GKB.
