Where to find halal food in Bangkok? I must admit that it is quite challenging to find halal thai food in Bangkok because even on the internet, you can’t find much. Having been to Bangkok so many times, I manage to spot some halal food around especially around Pratunam, MBK and Sukhumvit. I recently received many request from followers asking me where to find halal food. And so, I took up the challenge and came up with this Bangkok Halal Food Guide – 20 Must Try.
I usually don’t do up a guide without personally trying but I’m making an exception for this. I searched high and low around the internet to find the really good halal food places and here you have it, according to the different areas of Bangkok. The places below have majority good reviews and those that have many negative reviews have already been omitted.
You can do your part to help the Muslim community to find halal food in Bangkok. If you have tried the following places before or tried good ones before, tag them with #bkkhalalfood on Instagram. :)
