Travellers will find a range of halal-friendly food choices - something to fit every budget and suit the most discerning palate - in many New Zealand towns and cities.

With New Zealand’s melting pot of diverse cultures, visitors can expect to indulge in delicious halal-certified food that ranges from modern Indian to south-east Asian and authentic Middle Eastern.

From family to casual and fine dining, these eateries dish up New Zealand cuisine that goes way beyond the classic fish and chips or barbeques.

Innovative Kiwi chefs have developed a distinct Pacific Rim cuisine that features fresh seafood, award-winning dairy and famous New Zealand lamb, fueling a lively culinary scene that has something to suit all travellers. 

Finding halal food options in New Zealand

The Tourism New Zealand Halal Guide - developed in partnership with Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand (FIANZ) and Kiwi Muslim Directory – is a comprehensive overview of halal options available around the country.

The listings in the guide have been classified into three categories – Halal outlets certified by FIANZ, Halal outlets owned by Muslims (owners of these outlets assure the food is halal), and Vegetarian (outlets that are not halal certified or owned by a Muslim person, but claim to be pure vegetarian).

It is always advisable to confirm your dietary requirements at your chosen restaurant. You’ll find your Kiwi hosts friendly and willing to help at every stage of your journey.  

The halal food outlets included in the Halal Guide have been taken directly from the Kiwi Muslim Directory as recommended to Tourism New Zealand by FIANZ. The information provided in this guide is verified at the time of listing and subject to change without notice.  It is updated from time to time.
