Ramadan in Dubai

With Ramadan less than a week away, here are some top spots for an evening meal or Iftar.

While Muslims, not just in Dubai but around the world, fast from sunrise to sunset your usual lunch outing or brunch will be put on hold for a month. But for those not fasting, if you’re willing to embrace the culture and try something new, Iftar can be just as much fun.

There are plenty of Iftar tents that pop up around Dubai for Muslims who want to break their fast together and enjoy an evening meal out, but you don’t have to be fasting to join.

Some are more suited to families and some are more of a mixed bag – the tent at Atlantis, The Palm that I went to a few years ago was huge, perfect for families and/or groups of friends. The buffet area is split into light bites and main meals – with an impressive dessert selection of course.

But there are also lots of restaurants that put on special Iftar menus for the month. One of the best, and most comprehensive guides is on Time Out DubaiĀ
