Black Ox Bistro

Black Ox Bistro • Premium Halal Restaurant

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty.” [Sahīh Muslim]

And with this Hadith, the essence of Black Ox Bistro was conceptualized. Quite simply, this elegant restaurant provides an ambience of professionalism and quality without sacrificing the tenets of a halal environment. Developing the vision took owner Hamed Ali about two years, drawing inspiration from the beauty of Turkish architecture to authentic Quebecois foods.

Many fine dining restaurants are laden with Muslim minefields of alcohol and meat, but the entirely halal Black Ox provides a high standard of service and hospitality while maintaining exceptional caliber of food. The list of standards and options is lengthy; from dishes made entirely from scratch in house, to healthier options, to ample alternatives for dairy-free, gluten-free, vegetarian, and other diets.

A consistent theme of the establishment is quality, and the food is an unparalleled demonstration: this halal steakhouse lays claim to AAA 28-day aged meat and steaks and three day or less fresh slaughter chicken – just a couple of the many unique aspects of the eatery. This attention to detail and quality shines in every item from drinks to desserts.

Since launching a successful soft opening stage beginning January, the much-awaited grand opening in three weeks will have everyone from the local attendees to MPs in attendance. Another perk in the eyes of the owner is the close proximity to a community mosque, giving opportunities to collaborate and have proceeds go back to the community responsible for the restaurant’s success.

Overall, Black Ox Bistro provides an elegant halal dining experience that earns its spot among the top restaurants of the GTA.

    Made reservations when visiting this joint. It was great. Walking distance from my home. I love the location. It can be romantic and for business all in one. I enjoyed my meal — I got the Filet Mignon cooked medium and side of aged basmati rice. Make a reservation and enjoy fine dining at its best.

    I went here with my wife on a recent trip. We have been to other nice steakhouses, but this one really impressed us. The service was impeccable, and the food was amazing. We both had fillets with jumbo shrimp with garlic butter (wow!). We also had salads (a caesar salad and a special which was a grilled chicken with romaine hearts and herbed croutons). I don’t have anything negative to say about our experience.
