This article part two of the must-try Halal restaurants in Tokyo series. If you haven’t already, do read part one.

Lately, the number of halal corresponding restaurants has been increasing in Tokyo, but the overall amount is not that high. In a non-Muslim country like Japan, it is difficult to be a 100% Halal / Muslim compliant restaurant, so each restaurant has a different degree of commitment.

Right now it is hard to find a source which summarizes this information, so it is assumed that many Muslim people who visit Japan might not know where to find a restaurant with a menu friendly to their dietary restrictions.

So, this article aims to share some of that information in a concise and simple manner. We hope you find this useful!
