General+
What is halal?+

Halal is an Arabic word that literally translates as ‘permissible’ – so to put it simply, halal food is the food that Muslims are permitted to eat. Under no circumstance is pork or any of its derivatives deemed halal.

For an animal to be deemed halal it must be 100% alive at the time of slaughter, the animal must be slaughtered by a Muslim slaughterman (who recites a prayer on the animal before death), slaughter must occur by a SINGLE swipe to the neck of the animal to ensure minimal pain and suffering and all blood must be drained from its carcass.

I want to know a little bit more about HalalEat's halal filter.+

With the meat side covered above, here is where it gets more tricky. You'll note that we said halal translates as 'permissible' meaning halal can refer to anything that Muslims are permitted to do. Some believe that eating in an establishment that serves alcohol but sells halal meat is not halal, some may not regard the environment at a shisha cafe as permissible, others may regard animals that have been stunned before slaughter as non-halal and others may only eat at certificated restaurants. There are also people in the community that don’t mind any of the above and are happy to eat in an establishment that merely says 'halal' on the door.

At HalalEat, we're not here to judge you or here to tell you that your perception of halal is right or wrong. What we can assure you is that all of the meat used in every single one of our vendor partner restaurants is halal – if this isn't enough for you, that's fine – we've given you the ability to filter out things that you don't want present in your restaurant of choice. Our halal filter lets you choose whether or not you mind alcohol on site, whether you only want to eat from a halal certificated restaurant, whether shisha is present or not and whether or not the restaurant has been self-certified.

We are HalalEat – but we want you to eat halal your way.

You will need to call us immediately on 020 7193 2093 and if the restaurant has not yet started the order preparation we may be able to cancel your order – this however, cannot be guaranteed.

How can I add extra items to my order?+

If you would like to add an item to your existing order and you are paying by cash on delivery or collection, the easiest way is to contact us immediately and we will try to add the extra items to your order and notify the restaurant.

However, if you have already paid by card we will need to cancel that order and you will need to re-order and make the payment again. Obviously, your first transaction will be refunded to you

How do I know that HalalEat and the restaurant have received my order?+

What if the food was not what I ordered?+

If, for some reason, the food is delivered unexpectedly, just refuse the order at the door. If you accept the food, but then realise that there is a problem with the order and you can’t eat it, contact the restaurant and ask them to collect the food or to replace the food. Once this has been done, let us know and we will verify and then cancel the order in our system.

If you've paid in cash, you should receive your refund from the delivery restaurant. For orders paid online, we will issue your refund once you have notified us of the cancellation. Please note, we can only issue a full refund of an online payment if you do not accept your food, or if you have the restaurant to come and pick it up after you have received it. As long as you do not keep the food (or dispose of it in the bin), HalalEat will always make sure your refund is processed right away.

To be eligible for a full refund, all cancellation requests must be made within 10 minutes of your order being confirmed as "accepted" by the restaurant through our phone support customer care team. After 10 minutes, no cancellation or amendment to the order is permitted .

How do I resolve a problem or complaint with an order?+

If there are any issues with the food or service you have received, it's usually best to contact the restaurant in the first instance. The contact number for the restaurant is always provided in the "Order Accepted" email we send you upon confirming your order.

If you are unable to resolve the issue with the restaurant, or if for any reason you are not able to phone the restaurant, don't hesitate to contact us by phone or email.

HalalEat Loyalty Points+
How do HalalEat loyalty points work?+

We value your business, and thus we have launched a loyalty scheme that rewards you (and it’s very easy to get your head around!):

  • On joining HalalEat you are rewarded £2.50 (250 points) account credit valid for 45 days. This is a limited time offer.
  • For every £1 you spend thereafter you are awarded 1 point, and these points are valid for 12 months.
  • Minimum redemption value of HalalEat points is £2.50 on a transaction value of £15 or more. Redemption below the stated minimum cannot be processed by our system.
  • Redeemed point value does not earn new points.
  • You can also buy HalalEat points like how you buy Air Miles. This facility is currently under development, so watch this space!
  • Any purchased points can also be gifted to another HalalEat account – give someone the gift of food, what could be better?
  • Card payment refunds are converted to HalalEat points, and they are defined as cash points; you are able to transfer this out of your HalalEat account within 45 days of the original refund date. After the 45 day period, the points will be treated as normal HalalEat points, but they will have an extended expiry period of 24 months (calculated from the original date of refund transaction).
  • We reserve the right to modify or amend the structure of the scheme at any time with or without notice.
