Looking for halal foods in Shinjuku? Here are five great options you won't go wrong with! The list includes some of the area's best ramen as well as some delectable Indian restaurants.

Feel free to follow favy!

Ramen Ouka

This restaurant opened in 2016 with a concern for those who have dietary restrictions, but still want to enjoy delicious ramen. It is still rather rare to be able to enjoy Halal or vegan ramen in Japan.
Their ramen is made with sea bream, wagyu, and fresh vegetables. Everything they serve is Halal!
They also have vegan ramen for those who do not consume any animal products.
The reservation dinner set menu is about 2,500 yen and comes with "tsukune" (a sort of grilled chicken meatball), ramen toppings and rice so you have "ochazuke" at the end of your meal. "Ochazuke" is when you pour broth or tea over rice, in this case, you pour the remaining broth of the ramen over the bowl of rice. It also comes with organic tea at the end.

The lunch menu is basically the same, but it doesn't come with a drink and "tsukune".

Menya Kaijin

Menya Kaijin is another delectable ramen restaurant in Shinjuku that serves seafood broth ramen. This one is not halal certified but it's often mentioned on halal gourmet sites.

The soup has a beautiful golden color and the ramen has unusual toppings such as shrimp and chicken cartilage dumplings, all of which go wonderfully well with the soup. Ramen is about ¥1,000 per order.
Ramen Kaijin is located near the south exit of Shinjuku station.


Another great halal option in Shinjuku is Siddique, a Pakistani/Indian restaurant serving great curries with huge pieces of nan bread with your set. Everything is delicious and authentic and they also have belly dance shows on weekdays.
Siddique is on the west side of Shinjuku station, quite close to the Seibu Shinjuku station of the Seibu line.

Ashoka Shinjuku

This is another excellent Indian restaurant you won't go wrong with. It offers great vegetarian-friendly and halal food and hospitality. Vegetarian and halal options are quite limited in Japan, so this place is perfect in order to please everyone in the group. The food is simply amazing and some even claim on online rating sites that it's the best Indian restaurant they've ever been to!
Ashoka is a five-minute walk from Nishishinjuku station.


Another place worth the go is Turkish Restaurant Cankaya. They serve all kinds of Turkish specialties including some great kebabs, shrimp salads and fish stews. The restaurant is on featured on many halal gourmet sites, but it does sell some alcohol so it's not entirely halal.
The cozy restaurant is located a short distance walk from the west exit of Shinjuku station.
