Ramadan is in full swing in Dubai, and there are a plethora of choices for enjoying Iftars. The city’s most luxurious hotels are providing trendy and expensive offerings for those with discerning tastes looking to break their fast in the most opulent of ways. Three of Dubai’s most high-end Iftars this Ramadan are featured in this post.
Iftar at At.mosphere

At.mosphere sits on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa. It holds the honor of being the world’s highest restaurant at 442 meters above ground level. In addition to exquisite offerings for your palate, the restaurant provides arguably the most stunning view of the Arabian Gulf. To make the most of your Iftar at At.mosphere, be sure that you request a window table. It’s certainly worth the wait if one isn’t immediately available, but it will cost you. This restaurant’s pricey Iftar requires each person to spend at least Dhs650 in order to enjoy the sensational view. Another option is to be seated in the lounge and look out over downtown Dubai as you enjoy your Iftar. The minimum spend per diner for a lounge seat is Dhs300.There’s also a private dining room that can accommodate up to 14 diners.
Make sure you come hungry, as At.mosphere features a nine-course meal for Iftar.

Qbara, located in the Wafi Fort Complex next to the Raffles Hotel, is offering a variety of specials for Ramadan. The restaurant’s Iftar menu is priced at Dhs245 a person (a far cry from being the most expensive, yet still toward the high end) and includes some very creative dishes from Middle Eastern cuisine, plus traditional beverages from around the Arab world. Among the menu items for this Ramadan are a slow-cooked lamb shoulder marinated with yogurt and herbs and Qbara oriental rice with pistachios and pine nuts.
Qbara is also serving up Shisha service throughout Ramadan. The normal single-flavor service is priced at Dhs90, while the mixed-flavor service is priced at Dhs130. Shisha service is only available in the lounge.

Finally, we have Junoon Dubai, which is one of Dubai’s newest restaurants. Located at the Shangri-La Dubai, this Indian restaurant is offering several specials for Ramadan. Junoon’s Iftar is a five-course meal featuring some exciting takes on traditional street food from India. Some of the menu items which are special for Ramadan include goat kebab, chicken tikka, and black dhal.
Junoon also has a top-notch mixologist who is serving up some interesting and exciting drinks for Ramadan.
