It may seem ‘boring’ to have a date at an Indian restaurant but Jamavar is an excellent exception. Taking inspiration from both Northern and Southern India and adding a modern twist, the dishes at Jamavar are made to pack an explosion of flavours. Opt for the tasting menu so you can have a taste of the signature dishes, otherwise opt for the malai stone bass tikka and adraki lamb chops.
Address: 8 Mount Street, London, W1K 3NF | Cuisine: Indian | Halal Status: Chicken and lamb is halal. Pork and alcohol present.
FENCHURCH RESTAURANT, SKY GARDEN
What is it about having a great view that makes you feel all sultry and loved up? Start with a tour where you are treated to a panoramic view over the Thames, then head straight up the Fenchurch restaurant, who serve fantastic dishes like sea bass ceviche and molten chocolate soufflé with velvety yoghurt ice cream.
Address: 1 Garden Walk, London EC3M 8AF | Cuisine: Contemporary British | Halal Status: Chicken and lamb can be preordered 72hr in advance.
INDIAN ACCENT, MAYFAIR
Experimental Indian is what one would use to describe Indian Accent. Of course, the other word would be sexy. From the dimly-lit, sleek dining room to the cozy tables to the aesthetically pleasing plating, this has romance written all over it. Start with the potato sphere chaat, followed by the kashmiri morels, braised lamb shank, and a butter chicken kulca on the side. The makhan malai is the ideal sharing dessert.
Address: 16 Albemarle St, Mayfair, London W1S 4HW | Cuisine: Modern Indian | Halal Status: Chicken and lamb is halal. Pork and alcohol present.
Momo in Mayfair has always had a date-night feel to it with the dim and cosy environment, but having just gone under a refurbishment, the restaurant is more romantic than ever! Low-level lighting, plush seating, each corner of the restaurant oozes glamour. Tuck into one of the tantalising tagines, like the lamb, prunes, and poached pears, or go for one of the grills.
Address: 25 Heddon Street, London, W1B 4BH | Cuisine: Moroccan | Halal Status: All meats, except the game, is halal. No pork but alcohol present.
TING AT THE SHARD, LONDON BRIDGE
As soon as you mention the Shard, you know you’ve won over your date – it really is one of the most romantic halal restaurants in London. The view is simply breathtaking; opt for dinner where you can watch London glow up or, after staying a night in one of their beautiful and smart rooms, have breakfast as the sun rises.
Address: 32 London Bridge St, London, SE1 9SG | Cuisine: Asian | Halal Status: Halal chicken and lamb must be preordered 24 hours in advance. Pork and alcohol served.
They say home is where the heart is and although a home cooked gourmet meal by candlelight can be romantic, sometimes you just don’t fancy cooking. This is where Kutir comes in. Kutir is based in a classic Chelsea townhouse and any meal there feels like you’re eating at home, well a very, very nice home. The seating is limited making the atmosphere even more intimate and cosy; just don’t show up in your jammies!
Address: 10 Lincoln St, Chelsea, London SW3 2TS | Cuisine: Indian | Halal Status: All meats are halal except the game. No pork but alcohol is served
Dark, sleek, and most definitely charming is what Amaya is in a nutshell. This Michelin-starred restaurant skips the poppadoms and vindaloos, and heads straight for the tantalising grills, like their juicy smoked chilli lamb chops and juicy tandoori prawns. Just be aware, they frown upon photo taking so save the selfies for outside!
Address: Amaya, Halkin Arcade (Entrance via Lowndes St), Belgravia, London SW1X 8JT | Cuisine: Indian | Halal Status: Select chicken and lamb dishes are halal. No pork but alcohol present.
