KUALA LUMPUR -- Dining out with peace of mind has become a whole lot easier for Muslims in Japan.

Developed by Tokyo-based company ROI, restaurant app Halal Navi has been downloaded more than 50,000 times since its launch in 2014. It also boasts some 1,000 listed cafes and restaurants and 2,000 online reviews. The app also shows photos and locations of mosques, and in April, a supermarket and hotel search function was added.
