|★★★ This place is good, but it is NOT zabiha by any means. It was clear after my 1st visit that owner is Arab but not necessarily Muslim. The staff and owner state that the meat is Halal (meaning legal) but this should not be confused for Zabiha, which is a specific slaughtering process. |
|★ The food was not at all tasty. Was also very expensive. Cost over $18 for four slices. |
|★★★★ I recently returned from Jordan where I had my first meat lovers pizza. I enjoyed it so much that I searched for a halal pizzeria near my house while expecting to not find one. It was a happy moment when I found this place. So, we visited the place and it has the feel of a typical sports bar style pizzeria. After ordering the seniores special, my husband showed me the reviews and I became concerned. I again confirmed with the employees that the ingredients are halal and they assured me it was. I asked to see the ingredient list for the salami and they showed it to me. It was all turkey and to my relief it didn't have natural flavoring, which can be pork base broth. Understanding the place may want to protect itself from competion, I didn't ask for it's distributor. My husband converted to Islam later in life and he said the pepperoni, salami and sausage weren't pork products. |
After reflecting on the experience I came to the realization that the employees weren't Muslim and may not understand more than the term "halal". They however verified that the owner's name was Waleed and he refused to serve any pork products. Yes, they serve beer and wine, but without doing so the business would lose a large percentage of it's patrons and go out of business. Heck, liqour stores and alcohol was accessible in Jordan, a predominantly Muslim country. I will continue to go here as I choose to believe the Muslim owner will not lie about such things for the percentage of Muslim patron ... It looked like he did fine with non-Muslim patron. I do however want to thank him for providing a product that would otherwise be unavailable to the Islamic community outside an Islamic country. As for the beer and wine, so long as it isn't added to my pizza I'll continue to do what I do at other places by exercising free will and not ordering.
|★ We had the meat lovers pizza yesterday and made a big mistake. I was with my sister-in-law who did not grow up Muslim and has had pork bacon in the past. She said the so-called Turkey Canadian bacon tasted and felt like real ham bacon. She was 100% sure it was ham.|
This was after we had asked the manager twice to confirm it was halal.
Please do NOT trust that this restaurant is either thabiha or halal!
|★★★★ I was introduced to this place by Muslim friends. I remember loving the meat lovers pizza. |
However, we've checked with the owner of the place and he said that the meat is not zabihah. It is halal in the sense that they do not serve pork (they serve all beef). So if you eat zabihah-only meat, this is not the place for you. That said, you can order one of their meat specials and substitute other ingredients for the meat ingredients. They also have delicious vegetarian specials (such as the Salute Vegetarian and the Greek Special).
They are friendly and polite. We never eat there; we always get take out. They also have free delivery. At first, the place comes off as a little pricy, but the pizza is so worth it!
|★★ When I ate here it was confirmed to me that the meat was halal, but I am starting to doubt it based on experiences of others as well as other reviews listed below. I also doubt that the meat is Zabihah as they serve alcohol there as well. I would not recommend going here unless and until they remove their bar section and show valid proof that the meat is Zabihah.|
|★ Went there for ifthaari a little over a week ago, my fiance advised me the meat there is not halaal so we sent two people to ask who supplies the meat. The owners initial response,"I cannot tell you right now," second response after being asked again by a very upset Muslim friend of mine who thought she was eating halaal this whole time,"I'm embarrassed to tell you"...so if you can't provide your halaal meat suppliers name, what does that tell you? This place is not halaal and I strongly suggest people ask for either the meat packaging, supplier, etc. We were all very upset and disgusted and I am merely posting this to warn other unsuspecting Muslims. Also, there is beer propaganda everyone and a rowdy bunch, would not recommend this place to anyone. S-h-a-d-y!|
|★★★★ confirmed with one of managers that all meat served is halal. I had a personal meat lovers pizza. It was very good! The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because they serve all kinds of beer and also there is no sign that says all the meat is halal anywhere outside or inside the place! Also they charge a little too much for refills on soda:)!|
|★★★★★ The pizza is awesome. Try the meat lovers. It will make you come back for more. The cheeseburger is great as well. Only down is they serve alcohol. |
|★ I was in the valley on business and wanted to visit this place to have dinner, drove up and was very un-impressed with the atmosphere, extemely loud music, dark lights inside - looked more like a night club so I drove away - there is more to Halal than just the meat - may Allah forgive me if I am wrong and guide these owners if I am correct - I ended driving to Zafran.|
|★★★★★ This is our favorite pizza from outside! I don't know what the atmosphere is like inside because my husband always brings it home but the customer service, according to my husband, is very good. The food is really high quality and the portions are very reasonable in relation to the cost of the food!|
|★★★★ The pizza is good, good sevice,every thing else is good.|
|★★★★★ The first time we went here, we spoke to the owner who confirmed that he served halal meat on his pizzas. The Canadian bacon is actually turkey bacon. We've been here twice and we absolutely love the pizzas. The setting is a little questionable but we hope that by supporting his business, he may be encouraged to change.|
|NR I heard about this place from a friend and called them just to confirm that the meat they used was halal, and the person on the phone said "yes". When I asked, "ok, the meat is zabihah?" the person on the phone got confused and asked me "what's that?" He then went on to say they do not use any pork products. I told him that is fine and all, but is the meat zabihah? He was still confused and didn't answer. I never got a chance to eat there. Can anyone truly confirm that they do use zabihah meat?|
|★★★★★ Best Pizza in Town!|
|★★★★ Awesome pizza. Thanks for finally making a halal pizza joint in South Bay. |
|★★★★ The Pizza is pretty good. I've got verbal confirmation multiple times that they indeed have halal/Zabihah meat. I talked with a brother named Waleed. They also serve sandwiches. Also, they do serve Alcohol :(. InshahAllah we pray that Allah guides them. Ameen|
|★★★ The pizza is really good, but the atmosphere is clearly sports bar, with very prominent beer taps right behind the register. I don't think I'd sit down to eat there. And it makes me feel kind of bad even to order.|
