Update: Marina O'Loughlin has reviewed The Halal for her review in this week's Sunday Times. It's an emotional read and it certainly sounds as if Mehnaz's Twitter plea has worked wonders for her Dad's restaurant as they're "having to beg people not to turn up without bookings in case they have no tables". We love a story with a happy ending.

Now this is a story to warm the cockles of your heart. Last night Twitter user Mehnaz took to social media to try and drum up some support for her dad's restaurant in Aldgate.

In further tweets she explained that the Halal Restaurant had first opened its doors way back in 1939. It was owned by her grandfather first and now her dad runs the show.

The whole thing clearly struck a chord, and along with going viral, she had some really lovely responses about the restaurant itself.

If you fancy trying it, and after this who wouldn't, they're on UberEats, Just Eat and you can also dine in. Here's hoping you find it hard to book a table...
