Some of the recommended halal food places in the guide include Bawarchi Indian Restaurant in Central Auckland, Garudas Food Truck in Wellington, The Herb Centre Café in Christchurch, and KL Aroma Restaurant in Dunedin.

Tourism New Zealand’s Regional Manager of South and South East Asia, Steven Dixon, said the updated guide will “further enhance New Zealand’s position as the preferred holiday destination” among Muslim visitors.

Launched in 2016 in partnership with the Kiwi Muslim Directory and the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand (FIANZ), Halal Food Guide currently has 567 halal-certified listings.

The listings in the food guide are categorised into three categories – FIANZ-certified halal outlets, Muslim-owned halal outlets and vegetarian outlets.
