Celebrate the Holy Month of Ramadan with an unforgettable Iftar experience with your family, friends, and loved ones.


The Holy Month of Ramadhan is one of the most awaited occasions of many Muslims worldwide. Ramadan is an opportunity to spend some quality time with everyone in the family. During Iftar, it is customary for everyone to come and sit down for a meal together. When sunset approaches, everyone becomes hungry and waits to break their fast all at once. This allows your family to catch up on each other’s lives, enjoy each other’s company, and bond with one another.

To celebrate these moments of togetherness, we have rounded up some of the best Iftar offers in Jakarta for your family, friends, and loved ones.
