As Ramadan 2024 approaches, Muslims around the world are preparing themselves to observe one of the five pillars of Islam – the Ramadan fast. During the holy month, Muslims abstain from food and drink from dawn until dusk. To break the fast at sunset, Muslims have Iftar, which is the meal that marks the end of the daily fast during Ramadan.

To make the experience more enjoyable, many venues and restaurants in Dubai have arranged exquisite Iftar buffets and tables this year. If you are planning to break your fast outside, here is a list of recommendations for Dubai Iftar buffet events in 2023.
