This Xinjiang-style restaurant has a good reputation among both foreigners and Chinese considering that the prices are economical and they serve take-out. However, it isn't certified as Halal by the local board. This isn't gourmet Uigher food, but ok for a regular lunch or dinner. Many people love Xinjiang-style Uigher food because there is a greater range of ingredients, more meat and dairy products is served, and there is a greater variety of dishes than in a typical Lanzhou Lamian noodle restaurant. At the crossroads between east and west in far northwestern China, the Uigher people have a cuisine style that is a combination of Chinese-style food and Western Asian-style food. So Westerners find the tastes more familiar. A low-cost specialty at this restaurant is Beef Bread Bun (牛肉餅) and the curry is said to be good.
The halal food is good, and the setting is special: the restaurant is decorated like Cairo of the 1930s with mirrors, arches, tassels, cushions, and ceiling fans.
Next to the restaurant is the auxiliary Habibi Cafe where the food is cheaper and take-out food is available. Pita bread, tehina, and falafel are served.
Islamic Center Canteen is the more popular of the two official Halal Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong.

The food is great and is certified Halal by the Islamic Community Fund of Hong Kong.
The meat comes from China or other countries, and the seafood is good. The Islamic Centre Canteen is not only a place to eat, but a place where you can mingle with fellow Muslims from around the world.

There are several Pakistani/Indian Muslim restaurants in or close to the the Chung King Mansions building, but probably this is the only one officially certified as Halal. The food is generally thought to be good for the price.
