The original & world's largest guide
to Halal restaurants & markets
Halal food is more than just an article of faith,
it is an exciting cultural medium that allows humanity to see Islamic values in action
Shahed Amanullah, Zabihah founder

Our story
Even though I was born and raised in America, I love food from around the Muslim world. Curries from Pakistan, tajines from Morocco, Islamic Chinese – there are so many delicious options for those of us who want to eat primarily zabihah (conforming to Islamic dietary codes) food. But it's hard to find those few restaurants that serve zabihah food, so we miss out on great dining experiences. That's why my friends and I started Zabihah – we want to share the news about the places where we love to eat.

The tens of thousands of reviews on Zabihah are honest evaluations by people like you. And just because a restaurant serves halal food doesn't necessarily mean its good. We feel that by holding Muslim restaurants to the highest standards, we can improve the dining experience of all Muslims. And if you don't agree with an evaluation, just let us know and we'll add your comments to our site.

Since 1998, Zabihah has grown from a regional guide to halal food in California's Silicon Valley to the world's largest guide to halal restaurants and products, and is an established leader in the global Halal revolution.

With over 20,000 reviewed restaurants and markets worldwide, Zabihah has helped promote the expansion of the halal restaurant industry in the West and is credited by many restaurants for making the provision of halal meals economically viable. And over 50% of Zabihah's 20 million annual users access restaurant listings and reviews through mobile devices such as the iPhone, which alone has had 500,000 app downloads since its launch.

Over a decade of precise market data from our global user base has provided Zabihah with unprecedented consumer demographic information and marketing opportunities that will benefit the worldwide Halal industry as it continues to develop. So keep an eye on us to see how we take Halal to the next level!
