Heading to Westfield for a shopping trip and looking to grab a bite? Then check out this Westfield White City Halal Food guide where we list out all the halal food options you can find in the mall, featuring everything from quick bites to sit down meals! We have definitely spent a fair bit of time at Westfield White City as we live nearby. I’m not really a shopper, so the time we spent at Westfield is really mostly for food in the area. Luckily, there are quite a few options around and we will keep updating this list if anything new pops up!

Westfield Terrace (Shepherds Bush station side)
If you’re looking for a nice sit-down meal, Copper Chimney is definitely the one to be. The Indian restaurant features a lovely interior and decor that’s most perfect to wind down after a day strolling at the mall. Food-wise, Copper Chimney makes some of the best meat grills in town, especially their Chicken Tikka and Burrah Lamb Chops. Their Butter Chicken is a popular pick too and most ideal with some freshly made roti and naan. It’s also a perfect date-night dinner spot in our opinion!
Balans Soho Society
If you’re looking for a brunch/lunch spot before your shopping adventures, Balans Soho Society could be an option. They serve halal chicken and beef, and its menu offers a good selection of classic brunch dishes. If you’re feeling a little naughty, try out the Togarashi Buttermilk Chicken Doughnut – yep, fried chicken in a doughnut – don’t knock it till you try it! We have tried their breakfast menu and thought it was okay but nothing spectacular.
Halal Status: Chicken & beef are halal. Pork and alcohol are present at the restaurant
You’ll see people chilling and having shisha as you walk past Mandaloun. The Lebanese restaurant has a pretty big menu featuring mezze, salads, wraps, stews, and plenty of grills. However, we haven’t always heard the best things about the food – we haven’t actually tried it to confirm anything though.
Everyone loves a giant big chicken skewer. The Brazilian chain restaurant, Cabana, specialises in Spicy Malagueta Chicken skewers which arrives at your table in a giant skewer before the staff neatly slide them onto a plate for you. You can choose your glaze between Spicy Malagueta, Guava Barbecue or Honey Glaze, and you can pick up extra sauces from their counter like Nandos-style. Enjoy it with a side of Biro-Biro Rice, Churrasco Fries, and/or Rio Black Beans to complete your Latin-inspired meal!
Before we got spoilt with amazing halal fried chicken burgers around London, GBK Burgers used to be a go-to spot for an easy fried chicken burger fix. They do halal panko chicken across all branches up and down the nation. We used to get their Panko Satay Chicken Burger, with their delicious Tater Tots on the side and a glass of their creamy chocolate milkshake! There are more chicken options on the menu now but always remember to get the panko chicken and not the grilled chicken as the latter is not halal.
Westfield Food Court & Atrium
Fancy some halal Chinese food? Then you ought to check out Mrs Chew’s. Its menu offers a selection of dim sums, Chinese roast chicken and/or duck, and various stir-fry dishes. Everything is halal on the menu and, as far as affordable no-fuss halal Chinese food goes, even though they’re not a hundred per cent stellar, they are a decent pick if you’re hanging around in Westfield. If you were to pick just one dish, we would recommend trying out their roast duck!
The Vietnamese franchise may not be the most authentic representation of Vietnamese cuisines but, as far as halal-friendly ones, Pho is a decent spot. For pho noodle soups, only the Spicy Chicken Pho, Curry Noodle Soup, and vegetarian ones are halal. The regular chicken pho isn’t halal as the broth isn’t – but if you ask for the vegetarian broth, they may be able to cater that. Pho aside, their Vietnamese Curries are a good shout too.
Morty & Bob
Morty & Bob’s are most known for their grilled cheese sandwiches, which you can thoroughly enjoy here at their Westfield White City branch. Expect rich and oozy cheese with either mixed onions or mushrooms & truffle, sandwiched in between crispy toasts with the most alluring aroma. For this branch only, they also offer halal chicken, beef, and lamb. Their chimichurri steak sarnie certainly goes down a treat, or their rotisserie chicken is quite a nice one too!
For a quick but filling bite, Tortilla is definitely a good option. You can’t go wrong with their Build-You-Own Burrito, where you get to choose between chicken (which is halal), grilled vegetables, or vegan chilli, and pick & choose your own choice of rice, beans, fresh salsas, and guacamole. If a burrito is too heavy, then try their tacos or rice bowls, which are lighter options. For something sweet, they have recently added chocolate churros onto their menu as well!
Halal status: Chicken is halal. Pork is present on the menu.
Fancy some fluffy bao buns? Then look no further than Master Bao. Enjoy the likes of Taiwanese fried chicken bao, which is paired with wasabi mayo, kimchi, and coriander; or check out the fried prawns, teriyaki shiitake mushrooms, or braised tofu options. Alternatively, they also have noodle bowl options and a small selection of small sharing plates for sides as well.
It was this very branch that Pizza Pilgrims started trialling out halal pepperoni on their menu. Following its success, halal pepperoni is now available across all branches – simply let your waiter know and they’ll ensure your pizza is handled and cooked separately. We think their vegetarian offerings, such as the Margherita and Truffle Mushroom pizzas, are better but it’s always good to have an extra option!
Thinking about Indian food but don’t feel like a proper sit-down meal at Copper Chimney? Then Indi-go is your quick and easy fix. Enjoy a range of street food classics such as masala fries, chaat, momos, etc. as well as tandoori grills, curries, and dum biryani. Some dishes are better than others, but as far as no-fuss food-court food goes, I suppose it’s an alright pick.
Comptoir Libanais has been a solid Lebanese eatery across London. Enjoy a variety of mezze (can’t go wrong with some falafels and kibbeh), salads, meat grills, as well as their Lebanese burgers, wraps, and tagine dishes. Food court-quality food inevitably won’t be as good as their actual restaurant’s but it does the job. From our personal experience, we thought the mezze were okay but the meat grills were not quite worth it.
If you take the stairs up from the food court to the Atrium, you’d find the nationwide burger chain, Byron’s. They have recently added a chicken burger range which is halal! You can choose between grilled or buttermilk deep-fried chicken. Do note that they use chicken breast, so it’s not going to be as succulent and flavoursome as chicken thighs. But we’ve heard positive reviews for the chicken burgers, especially the deep-fried chicken ones, and it’s always great to see a national chain opening up their food to a more diverse crowd!
Westfield Square (near John Lewis)
Bindas Eatery is the newest restaurant addition in Westfield White City. Started out as a pop-up in Westfield, Bindas Eatery went on to open their first restaurant in Mayfair and have now opened a second branch back at where it all started. Find them at the Westfield Square by the John Lewis side and enjoy a warming cup of House Chai or Rose Chai while munching down their signature Butter Chicken Bomb Burger. Their curries are pretty nice too and you ought to try out their unique Za’atar & Truffle Paratha! Read more about our experience and review of Bindas Eatery Westfield here.
All Star Lanes
Bowling nights are always fun. Next time you are at All Star Lanes for some fun activities, you can also enjoy yourselves a little munch if you’re peckish or sit down at their restaurant area for more food. All Star Lanes offer halal chicken across all branches where you can enjoy different flavoured wings (cajun/buffalo/bbq) and crispy buttermilk fried chicken burgers or buns. You can opt for the Bowl, Drink & Dine Menu – which includes a game of bowling plus a 2-course menu and drinks. For groups, a family bundle menu is also available.
Desserts & Snacks
Mamasons Dirty Ice Cream
Mamasons Dirty Ice Cream Westfield is the third branch of the popular Filipino ice cream parlour. You can find all things Ube there, including ice cream, Bilog, doughnuts, hot chocolate, iced latte, Halo-halo, etc. In addition to that, you’d definitely want to get your hands on their Baklava Bilog, which is exclusive to the Westfield branch! Read more about our write-up on Mamasons Dirty Ice Cream Westfield here.
Being on a diet doesn’t mean you have to miss out on desserts and treats! Need a guilt-free dessert? Yole has got your back. Their entire range of ice cream and frozen yoghurts are all at very low calories (only 55cals per 100ml) and no added sugar. The flavours were excellent, whether you’re actively seeking out low-calorie treats or not, and there are plenty of topping options for you to choose from.
If you never had Taiwanese wheel cakes before, they are the cutest sweet treat that looks like mini wheels. They are essentially custard-filled mini cakes – moist, fluffy and pillowy. Wheelcake Island is the first to serve this traditional Taiwanese treat in London and offers delicious flavours such as vanilla custard, matcha, chocolate & vanilla custard, and Azuki red beans. Keep an eye out on any seasonal special flavours as well because you definitely don’t want to miss out on flavours like Biscoff, Oreo, etc.!
Ole & Steen
If you’re looking for a place to sit down with a coffee and pastry, especially if you like cinnamon buns, then you must head to Ole & Steen. Their Cinnamon Social Slice is unrivalled and there are plenty of other amazing Danish pastries and cakes to choose from as well. Brunch is also available where you get to sit down and enjoy the likes of avocado toast.
Freshly baked giant chunky cookies, you say? Yes, please! You can’t go wrong with a cookie treat from Ben’s Cookies. You won’t be able to miss them if you’re heading to Westfield from the Shepherds Bush station side. There are plenty of flavours for you to choose from and our go-to favourites are any of their chocolate chunk cookies.
I’ll let you on a little secret. I used to walk past Mr Pretzels, usually when heading to Boots, and they will always be handing out free samples for their Cinnamon Pretzels. They are honestly so irresistible and always left me wanting more! The signature cinnamon pretzels aside, you can enjoy a range of both sweet and savoury offerings including chocolate, toffee, salted, sesame, and more.
Biju Bubble Tea
Before some big Taiwanese names came to London, Biju is definitely one of my top bubble tea spots. They’re still a very solid spot to check out should you be craving boba during your shopping trip. Our favourite flavours include the Hong Kong-style Milk Tea, Matcha, Chocolate Milo, and Sesame Milk Boba!
Snowflake Gelato has been a pretty popular ice cream parlour in town, with stores all over central London. The Westfield store offers classic gelato scoops, sundaes, as well as waffles and crepes. You can find them on the 1st floor of Westfield near the food court. If you’re looking for an ice cream treat, it’s definitely one to check out.
Pan N Ice
Speaking of ice cream, the hype might have died down on social media but Pan N Ice’s ice cream rolls remain a popular pick in Westfield. There is something satisfying to watch their ice cream rolls being made, from the chopping to rolling, it’s almost like you get a show out of it every time you order from them.
P.S. Did you know they do DIY kits for their ice cream rolls too? It comes with a mini electric pan, spatulas, and all the ingredients you need to recreate their ice cream rolls at home!
Little Moons’ mochi ice cream has been quite the popular treat these days. They are now widely available at various leading nationwide supermarkets and they also got a little kiosk at Westfield White City to fix your cravings. Enjoy a range of flavours, from classic vanilla, chocolate & hazelnut, matcha, pistachio, strawberry, mango, yuzu lemon, etc. and mix-and-match as you like without having to commit to a whole package from the supermarkets!
The Brisbane hole-in-a-wall doughnut shop is now a worldwide sensation with locations everywhere, including Westfield White City. Expect giant fluffy doughnuts with all sorts of decadent flavours and creative flavour names. Our favourites include El Dorado (Biscoff), Liam Hemsworthy (red velvet cookies & cream), Stranger Rings 2.0 (chocolate, Oreo & Nutella), Bruno Mars (hazelnut cream, Nutella, wafer & Kinder Bueno), and many more!
It is rather impossible to resist Wafflemeister’s alluring display of waffles! Their signature Belgian Liege Waffles with various toppings are quite the lovely sweet treat on the go and simply delicious. Liege Waffles aside, you can also enjoy the likes of milkshakes and ice cream from their stall.
If you’re near the John Lewis side of Westfield, Crepeaffaire is a great pick for a little pick-me-up treat with its selection of crepes. You can enjoy both sweet and savoury flavours (though only chicken is halal), and perhaps treat yourself to a nice little drink with it as well. Classic flavour-ed crepes aside, there are also lots of vegan options, and they have also added a range of waffles and mini pancakes on the menu!
There’s more than one boba spot in Westfield White City – you may not spot it directly inside the mall but, if you’re visiting from the Shepherds Bush station side, you won’t be able to miss T4 next to the station. T4 is also a decent pick for bubble teas and got more options than Biju above.
