Joburg has a large and diverse Muslim community, and while historic neighbourhoods such as Fordsburg and Mayfair still offer the widest selection of halaal options, you can enjoy halaal dining in other corners of the city too. We’ve rounded up the best places to eat halaal in Joburg here.

Continuing our spotlight on where to eat out in Joburg’s different suburbs (check out our ParkhurstParkview , Parkwood, Melville and Greenside guides) we took a look at what’s happening in Craighall Park. We found that though it lacks the colourful high streets of the other Parks suburbs, it more than holds its own when it comes to to eating out. Here’s our favourite places to eat out in Craighall Park.

Weird and wonderful Gauteng attractions
