Depending on type of Thai food, generally speaking, the majority of Thai food is not Halal. Therefore, it’s important that you do your research and plan your trip thoroughly to ensure that the Thai restaurants you’re dining at are Halal.

However, many Thai restaurants offer seafood like shrimp and fish. Just make sure to ask what type of frying oil they use since in some cases pork fat is used. Ultimately it can only be decided by you whether or not you are comfortable enough to consume the food.

After a bit of planning, you should not have any issues finding restaurants serving Halal food.

Be sure to check their meat packaging for a Halal seal.

It’s a bit of a complicated subject but the short answer is that KFC in Thailand is not Halal since not every branch has a Halal certificate.

Here’s the longer and more complex answer. In a 2013 interview conducted by Halal Food Consumer Network, KFC gave their response as follows:

All KFC products are all halal and are of the same standard in all branches nationwide, including chicken, seafood, nuggets and all kinds of seasonings.”. 

However, KFC Thailand says the franchise has not applied for a Halal certificate from the The Central Islamic Council of Thailand because the application requires that all branches in each province have to make a separate request. The Halal inspection fee of all of KFC’s 700 branches is something that KFC admitted to not being able to keep paying for.

Finding Halal Food in Thailand

Thai cuisine is beloved and deeply ingrained in the country’s culture, yet it may not always be immediately considered halal. However, this doesn’t mean that halal-friendly options can’t be found in Thailand. With some preparation and effort, you can relish the exquisite flavors of delicious Thai food while abiding by Islamic dietary laws.

One avenue to explore is restaurants that have been certified by The Central Islamic of Thailand (CICOT), which adhere to strict guidelines in their food preparation, including the use of halal ingredients and the omission of alcohol and pork. These establishments often offer traditional Thai dishes, allowing you to savor the local cuisine without compromising on your dietary requirements. The Thai Halal Food Seal can help you identify such eateries.
