PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can any brother or sister help me? I live in the UK, and currently divide my time between Nottinghamshire and Bolton (currently incapacitated by a broken and operated on leg, so living temporarily at my parents house as I couldn't move in my top floor flat in Bolton) but hoping IN SHA ALLAH to move away from Bolton permanently and back to Notts soon. I want to take my parents, Granddad, both my brothers and my sister and brother-in-law out for dinner to say thank you for putting up with me screaming in agony at all hours of the night since the beginning of this year, which is where help is needed. Obviously all the meat served in any restaurant we choose should be halal, but all the restaurants we have seen in the UK that serve halal are curry houses, which is not suitable for my family (who have not yet accepted Islam, but try as far as possible to keep halal which is quite hard as they live in the middle of nowhere).
Dietary Requirements of my lovely family
My Mum doesn't mind curry as long as its quite mild, but prefers non spicy.
My eldest Brother (really my cousin but has been in our family for as long as I can remember) likes curry quite strong but suffers from stomach problems so cannot have it any more.
My Dad hates anything spicy, even pepper.
My Sister is the same as my Dad, but is Vegetarian as well (non fish as well as meat)
My youngest Brother is what he describes as a 'wonky-vore' as he eats meat, but only if it doesn't look like meat (he will eat mince/keema, sausages and burgers) He is also Diabetic (as is my husband and eldest brother/cousin/troll type person) so has to be extra careful with sauces especially in Indian restaurants which have hidden sugars in.
My Brother in law will anything as long as its a burger!
My Husband is diabetic, but will eat anything halal. (as long I ok it for sugar etc)
My Granddad will eat anything, but has to be careful to have low fat, low salt etc cos of his blood pressure.
So as you can see its not as easy as nipping to the local curry house as that only feeds half the party!
What we could do with is somewhere in the East Midlands of UK (Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire) that is a halal restaurant that serves English dishes other than the usual English choices of Omelette n chips/chicken n chips/steak n chips/salad n chips. I want to take them somewhere a bit better than a pizza shop/burger bar/fast food, and not KFC as they AREN'T halal, no matter how much their website claims they are (they had HMC/HFA status, but according to HMC website they cancelled it after deciding not to proceed with halal restaurants, but KFC have not publicised this fact;
but that's for another rant...)
Also, Arabic/Middle Eastern places are out, as even they are too hot for my dearest Daddy!
Does anyone know if such a place exists?
NOTE: yes I know I could make something for them, but there isn't enough room in the house for us to all sit round a table to eat, so that idea's out till me n my husband get a place in Nottinghamshire that IN SHA ALLAH will be big enough to entertain all NINE of us!
