FoodieS Pick: Iftar with a View

If you're looking for a new iftar experience, why not invite your family and friends to dine out at a place that offers the best view for your iftar get-together?


The month of Ramadan is not only about fasting but also about connecting and celebrating togetherness with friends and family. Many Muslims break their fast at sunset with an evening meal called Iftar, which is traditionally shared with family and friends. Iftar is a significant part of the Ramadan experience, as it marks the end of the day’s fast and the beginning of a time for reflection, prayer, and gratitude.

While some people may opt for a grand Iftar buffet, others may prefer a more intimate gathering. For those who want to combine their Iftar meal with a beautiful view, we have put together a list of recommendations to help you find the perfect spot to break your fast in style.
