We ordered delivery from this restaurant and food arrived hot and well packaged. The taste of the food was very authentic and delicious. The kebabs were will prepared and grilled and the rice was cooked perfectly.

Yes. All the food is halal. I have seen their certificates from the meat suppliers. They also have many vegetarian and Vegan options.
