Iftars to Look Forward to in Dubai

Ramadan Mubarak to all our readers! Ramadan is a month of reflection and gratitude and is best spent with loved ones. Sitting down together after the day to break one’s fast with family is the time we look forward to most.

Dubai is known to host some of the best iftars where there is a spread of cuisines of different kinds. While I am a person who prefers quality over quantity, I do happen to indulge in some buffets. However, sometimes you find average food and service for a price that is a tad too high.

And that’s where Hungryoungwoman comes in! This new list features the top five places to have Iftar in Dubai

Note: Mentioned below are restaurants that haven’t been listed in any ranking order.

Constellation Ballroom – Address Dubai Marina

I’ve been to the Constellation Ballroom from the last four years and it might just be my favorite Iftar in Dubai from the lot. The buffet displays a range of live cooking stations and the food is definitely worth a try.

The interiors are one word – Luxurious. Anyone can notice that there was a lot of time put into design those chandeliers, the lights, decorations, and squeaking clean floors. The entrance of the ballroom is impressive. A dimly lit room with candles and roses. Placed aside is a large figure that reads “#RamadanSawa”. After this, there is a red carpet to welcome guests. I sure felt like a star walking on it, even if it was for a few seconds. 😀

Priced at AED 220 per person. (Click here)


The Boulevard Kitchen – Manzil

For the real Ramadan spirit, head to The Boulevard Kitchen at Manzil, Downtown Dubai to experience authentic dishes like the Lamb Ouzi and Arabic grill.

The buffet was a generous spread. With the starters, main course, and dessert in different halls. We quite liked this arrangement as it prevented people from crowding up in one large hall.

Everything about the decor is Middle Eastern, the beautiful lanterns placed on the tables, the drinks, and sheesha. The dates and dry fruits of different varieties were placed in wooden boxes. What a wonderful idea!

Anise – Intercontinental, DFC

Anise features a massive buffet arrangement for Iftar and is in probably one of the most underrated hotels in Dubai. At AED 215 per person, the Iftar is inclusive of Ramadan juices and soft beverages. Not only is there a display of Arabic fare, but also International cuisines.

Head on to the highlights to see more of the buffet setup


Ewaan Ramadan Tent – Palace Downtown

Since we’re on about huge buffets, Ewaan would be hard to miss. The Ramadan Tent is an extension of the restaurant and is decked with a beautiful majlis. Private rooms for families also provided on request.

I was amazed by some unique dishes like Roasted Quail with Sumac and a Tahini Fountain at the buffet.

Priced at AED 255 per person


Ramadan Boulevard – Address Boulevard

Keeping buffets aside, the most sought-after Iftar on this list would be the one at Address Boulevard. Trying to capture the true sense of Ramadan, i.e., by bringing together friends and family over delicious and mindful food, Ramadan Boulevard is a long communal table serving traditional dishes with a modern touch with a sharing concept.

Priced at AED 195 per person

So, what do you think about the best iftars this season and has your favorite Iftar made the cut? Share and see what your friends think!

Until then, happy eating! xx

  1. Beautiful round up and a good guide if you are looking for a special Iftar. I’ve shunned the fancy ones this year for some more down to earth experiences but I know that these are tremendously popular.

    1. Thank you, Sally! They are indeed popular and a great deal. It was the start of Ramadan that I was exploring these, the rest of the days are dedicated to spending with close ones at home.
