I have a question and would be grateful if anyone could help me answer it.
Here in Toronto, Canada we have a restaurant called "NANDOS" which  is owned by 
a hindu and the cooks are christians. It has been claimed that they sell halal 
My question is that can we eat at this restaurant? 
If NO then how come we are allowed to eat Pizzas?


The information I have indicates that NANDOS is owned by a Christian, 
not a Hindu.  The owner assured me personally that the chicken is of halal 
meat. In fact,he was prepared to take me to his supplier. However, due to 
lack of time, I was not able to accompany him.

It is essential to ensure that the meat is halal. Maybe you and some
brothers can visit the suppliers.  Moreover, one has to ensure that the
proper laws of tahara in the kitchen are observed.

As for Pizza, we cannot have meat Pizzas for obvious reasons, they are not
halal. Even in the case of veg. pizzas, one has to ensure that the laws of
tahara in preparation of the Pizzas are observed.
