Secret Recipe is a growing Malaysian food chain in Thailand, especially in Bangkok. Many of us are not sure of its halal status of the outlets.
Recently I managed to contact the management to enquire regarding this crucial matter.
Below are the responses I received that I would like to share with all of you:

Thank you very much for interested Secret Recipe, we are grateful for the pleasure of serving you. And thank you for being our valued customer, we really appreciated you for taking your valuable time giving us your feedback.
As the question about the Halal and Halal certification, we do serving Halal food&cake but we don't have Halal certification at this time, really apologize about that. Anyway welcome to Secret Recipe in Thailand.
Please don't hesitate to contact us, if you have any question or some information is helpful to take us to better level of serving. We will hope to serve you again in the future.

Dear Khun Lynn,
We have a plan to apply the Halal certification, we have just received the certificate of GMP and HACCP. We are waiting for the approval from Halal certification which may take a little bit of time. Anyway, our factory practice is complied with Halal since established.
We will let’s you know soon. And thank you again for taking your valuable time giving us your feedback.

Email 3: which was the reply to my friend's query
Dear Mr. Shazril,
Thank you for your support to Secret Recipe.
With regards to your inquiry on the Halal certificate, we would like to informed you that we are now in the process of having the certificate for our central kitchen. The process will be complete in a few months.
However, our central kitchen has been working according to the Halal guideline since the opening. All the concerned supplies are from the Halal certified suppliers such as chicken from CPF.
Hope to see you at one of 22 Secret Recipe in Thailand....
With warm regards,
Chirawat S. marketing manager
