Another Halal restaurant opened up a few weeks ago, this time in Medford. Halal restaurants are becoming more popular on Long Island.
Ali Halal Grill’s menu features platters ($7), wraps ($6), and sandwiches ($-7) with choices of chicken, lamb, fish, or falafel. They also serve fried chicken and chicken waffles.
On Yelp, Cal H. celebrated the opening.
“HALLELUJAH!! Been so tiring visiting the same types of restaurants with the same type of food options in the area,” he wrote. “Been waiting for a halal spot and this place answered the call. Between the prices, the staff, and the food I wish I could give them 6 stars.”
Jackie M., of Farmingville, said she and her husband went there for Valentines Day after getting and ad in the mail for a free dinner. They ordered the chicken over rice platter.
“Oh my goodness it was fantastic,” she said. “The seasonings were so tasty and chicken was tender and moist. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Even though there are places like this closer to us this one is the best and we have recommended it to people and they love it too!”
