27 Halal Restaurants Penang Has To Offer (2024 Update!)

Looking for the best halal restaurants Penang has to offer?

Not sure where to eat for breakfast in Penang? Lunch? Dinner? I’ll let you in on where to find the best food in Penang halal version for any time of the day you want to eat.

With famous beaches, UNESCO heritage sites and food, it’s where I can have a taste of Malaysia in one go. 

Trust me, I’m married to a Penangite. For breakfast I’d have Roti Canai with curry, Laksa Penang for lunch and Koay Teow Th’ng for dinner.

My sister and I went parasailing at the Shangri-La Golden Sands Hotel beach in Penang

My husband calls Balik Pulau his hometown. My family and I balik kampung (visit hometown) every year for Eid to see our extended families and every year I would have that plate of Nasi Kandar even though I’m not really a fan of rice drowned in mixed gravies. 

I make exceptions when it comes to the best halal food in Penang island. I mean, you can’t say you’ve been to Penang if you haven’t tried its Nasi Kandar! 

I’ll have you know that Penang is so famous for its diverse gastronomic culinary that even CNN Travel writes about it in its CNN’s Best Destinations To Visit and Anthony Bordain dedicated a whole episode from No Reservations on Penang food.

You can basically get Chinese, Indian and Malay food in one restaurant.

Wondering if that particular Chinese dish Hokkien Mee is halal? Fret not. I’ve got you. I’ll even let you in on the best chilli pan mee: Penang & halal versions! 

By the way, if you’re new to Malaysia, you’ve probably seen halal signs everywhere, especially on the windows of restaurants. Malays in general are Muslims and they make up the majority of the population. 

Malaysians respect each ethnic’s traditional cuisine and for economic advantage, food operators obtain halal certification so they can cater to the Muslim majority as well. 

Now that I’ve got the basic halal background out of the way, let’s continue. 

By the time you’re done with this best halal food in Penang list, you’re going to want to pack your bags and go for that food hunt drive you’ve always wanted to take. Here are 27 best halal restaurant Penang has that you must definitely try:

Breakfast in Penang

1. Roti Canai Transfer Road

This notorious roti canai stall is a magnet among the breakfast crowd. You will keep coming back for their roti canai alone.

Recently, this stall went viral in the news when it was forced to close temporarily due to hygiene issues.

It has since commenced operation to mixed reviews. Some say the roti canai is still as delicious as ever. Locals say it’s a little overrated. 

But if you must see the hype for yourself, go early to avoid the long queue. The stall is located by the roadside so dust is really unavoidable.

Parking is difficult so come early especially on weekends and public & school holidays. 

Everything on the menu is affordable and they serve Chinese cuisine, definitely the best halal food in Georgetown Penang.

Their White Curry Mee is also out of this world.

At first, I thought the white curry was weird but wow, the taste will blow your mind. Their Hokkien Mee also looks so tempting. Might try that the next time I go there.

3. Astaka Taman Tun Sardon

I buy breakfast here every time I’m in Penang.

Halal Restaurants Penang

Limited parking spaces in front of the food court.

Get there early for parking and there’s usually a long queue for every stall. There’s also a reserved parking spot for OKU (disabled person) near the entrance. 

Serabai is a must try, as I don’t really see it sold elsewhere.

It tastes sweet, like eating coconut toast dipped in coconut jam. I usually buy a few sets, enough to last my children’s sweet tooth cravings until the evening.

My mom in law waiting for her serabai order

There are also small prepacked Char Koay Teow and Nasi Goreng at cheap prices. 

They’re delicious enough to fuel and prep you for a great day ahead. If you don’t like eating at tables while people queue next to your table, it’s best to order for takeaway.

This food court is open till 9pm but in my opinion, the breakfast time serves the best food.

Long queue for serabai…I waited in line for almost an hour

4. Ali Nasi Lemak Daun Pisang

Located in Sri Weld food court, this stall is famous among locals and tourists. 

Their nasi lemak feels and tastes authentic.

You can’t easily find nasi lemak sellers that wrap their nasi lemak in banana leaves anymore.

Their specialty is specifically nasi lemak. They have nasi lemak with sambal ikan bilis, nasi lemak with sambal sotong and nasi lemak with sambal udang. It’s super delicious and reasonably priced too.

As with any other viral place, get there early to beat the crowd and ensure nasi lemak with your favorite side dish is not sold out. If you’re into verified sources, this place was even awarded the coveted Michelin Guide!

5. Halal Restaurants PenangRoti Canai Argyll Road

I came here one time during Eid and was disappointed. 

That their roti canai was sold out. There were crowds waiting for their roti canai order which has been hailed by tourists and locals alike to be the best halal food in Penang island.

So don’t be late like me.

Service is slower when there’s a lot of customers so get there early to beat the late breakfast crowd. Their roti canai is so good, if you’re a tourist, you can’t go back without tasting the best roti canai in Penang.

6. Nasi Kandar Pelita

If you’re feeling a little left out of all the best halal food in Penang island, don’t worry. 

This Nasi Kandar shop is the best halal food in Butterworth, in mainland Penang.

The food here is so delicious they even opened up branches in other states. 

I’ve tried one in KL and if the Butterworth branch is anything like it, their ayam bawang (onion chicken) is so good.

They open 24 hours so this is the best spot if you’re up for that heavy meal, pre-dawn breakfast, late night supper or simply an overdramatic introvert who hates seeing people, but still wants to eat outside.

7. Restoran Kapitan

Ahhh… where to start with this. My new favorite dinner spot.

I came here in April 2023 and had their Milani Biriyani.

You betcha I’ll be going again during Eid this year. It was so delicious I cried. I’m crowning this dish the best halal dinner in Penang.

The white gravy on the chicken for Milani Biriyani tastes like buttermilk.

I always thought only an Indian side dish would go well with Biriyani but I was wonderfully wrong! I feel like it’s been fusion(ised) really really well.

The one I went to was located in Chulia Street. Restoran Kapitan has 3 other branches in Penang and you can Google to see which branch is closer to you. Also, it has a branch in Bangsar if you simply must eat there now.

8. Halal Restaurants PenangHameediyah Restaurant

I prefer to order takeaway as I can’t be bothered to bring my kids here with long queues. 

Halal Restaurants Penang

Photo Credit: @blakk_kimminas_hidayat (Instagram)

I’m not much of a soupy rice person so when I order from here, I’d request for the side dishes and gravies to be separate. 

Also, keep in mind that certain dishes like lamb shank, prawns and squids can put a hole in your pocket.

Of course, Hameediyah needs no introduction. Their Nasi Kandar is well known to be one of the best halal foods in Georgetown Penang.

9. Deens Maju Nasi Kandar

One of the famous nasi kandar in town. Parking can be a hassle.

Get there early as you’ll spend some time looking for parking and queuing to order. Same as other nasi kandar restaurants, be mindful of what you order as some dishes may be costly.

Halal Restaurants Penang

I’ve tried their nasi kandar with a side dish of ayam madu (honey chicken)

Halal Restaurants Penang

Photo Credit: syazmerhaaa zrr (Google Review)

Super delicious with a thick sweet sauce and a hint of spicy that even a 3 year old baby can handle. 

A tip from a local, there’s a lesser crowd on weekdays after 7pm-ish as the office workers would have gone back. I’d say this is easily the top 5 best Nasi Kandar I’ve ever had.

Their Nasi Kandar is definitely one of, if not the best halal food Penang is known for.

You’ll be surprised that this stall is a favorite among tourists and locals alike considering the place looks a little rundown and rustic.

Be sure to try their Cencaru Sumbat (Stuffed Mackarel Scad) smothered in sambal and crispy fried onions.

Halal Restaurants Penang

Their daging dendeng balado (spicy beef jerky) is also the best.

Parking near the hotel is difficult and the queue immediately starts when the shop opens so you might want to plan ahead before going.

12. Halal Restaurants PenangBangkok Lane Mee Goreng

My mom calls this Mee Goreng Pulau Tikus. Because the hawker stall is located in Pulau Tikus. 

The best mee goreng I’ve ever had. The red color of the noodle may scare you at first. But don’t worry, it doesn’t taste as spicy as it looked.

Halal Restaurants Penang

The shop has been there since forever. It may look like a chinese hawker stall, situated among other chinese stalls but it is halal. The stall displays a big green menu sign with Bismillah on it.

I’m amazed that this restaurant can blend Malay, Arabian, Levant, Indian and Pakistani food so well! It’s no wonder they’re awarded the Michelin Guide

The place looks expensive but surprisingly affordable, perfect for any special occasion.

The most expensive thing on the menu is Prawn Briyani at RM42. Cheapest thing on the menu is acar buah (fruit chutney) at RM5. This place makes me and my two kids feel welcomed as there is free wifi for the kids’ online videos. 

Their Beef Rendang and Herbal Lemuni rice is exceptional!

Authentic Malay food and a great variety of sambal belacan and ulam. 

They serve roti canai for breakfast too but come for lunch! You’ll thank me later. I also love that their fried chicken is served hot and crispy straight from the wok. 

One thing is for sure, you must eat like the locals and use your hands! The food just tastes better that way.

Halal Restaurants Penang

There were so many people, it was difficult to find parking and a table to sit. Also, I went late in the afternoon so it was scorching hot. So hot that it made my eyes water, not even the ABC (ice shavings dessert) could help cool my body down.

I’d say this is a must try for you laksa lovers but perhaps go in the evening if you don’t want to be slow roasted in an oven. 6pm should be fine and keep in mind it closes at 8pm.

There’s also seafood on the menu.

Their grilled fish with lemon and olive oil reminds me of Egyptian grilled fish. Smokey, tangy with soft meat. The only thing missing was that fresh chopped tomato sauce. However, you can always get a side dish like salad to complement the fish.

With the varieties of food that they have, I can get some of the best halal western food in Penang and the best halal steak in Penang for dinner. The restaurant also has a fresh seafood buffet, offering the best seafood in Penang halal option.

It’s called Mr Shawerma so you must definitely try their shawarma and their hummus or baba ganoush

24. Boat Noodle

Halal boat noodles are pretty difficult to find. Some shops claim to not serve pork but then actually serve pork when you get to the shop. So to be on the safe side, you can go to Boat Noodle in Queensbay Mall which is halal certified.

This shop has many branches all over the country. I especially love their Thai tea. The noodles are served in small portions in cute little bowls. Pretty cheap too as per bowl costs around RM2.80

There are spicy and non spicy options so be sure to ask the friendly staff. Personally, I feel both types of soup are delicious, with that distinct taste of Thai basil. 

This is the place to be to have your boat noodle Penang halal fix.
