Budget Iftars in Abu Dhabi - Under AED 100

Ramadan Kareem




The holy month of Ramadan is here and most restaurants in town have their annual tempting Iftar offers, however unfortunately most of them are quite heavy on the pocket because of which you don't exactly get to experiment too much. 

I've compiled a list of few tried & tested restaurants in Abu Dhabi that are having an Iftar & cost less than AED 100 per person. I'm hoping the list helps you out. 


Japanese/Sushi (Mikado Cafe)  















Mikado is offering a special Iftar set menu that includes a variety of sushi, appetizers, a main course and desserts with free flowing beverages and tea. Additionally, dates & fresh fruit platters will be served too. This would cost you about AED 195 for two people.

Indian - When it comes to Indian food, you have quite a few options to choose from. 5 places I would personally suggest are the following – 

1. Peppermill 





















Peppermill a great place to experience the spirit of Ramadan. The ambiance is great & so is the food. They are having an Iftar buffet this time at their Wahda Mall branch and an Iftar 5 course set meal at their Eastern Mangroves branch. Both are priced at AED 99 per person.

International (Up & Below) 
















Now this is a place I would recommend for a group of friends probably who are looking at a nice air conditioned open terrace area set-up which serves Shisha as well. With regard to their food, you can sample delicious sharing platters and tapas style dishes like Tuscan bruchetta, buffalo chicken wings, crispy calamari etc. It's priced at AED 99 per person (Not inclusive of the shisha)

Location - Courtyard by Marriot, WTC, Abu Dhabi

Lebanese (Zaytinya) 





















Zaytinya does their appetizers and grills like no-other Lebanese restaurant in town. I was there recently and had the best time ever. Also you're definitely going to like the ambiance too. Recommended for family gatherings. 

Location - Al Seef Mall 
Timings - Sunset to 8.30

Additionally I remember having Chicken Tikka Inn (Airport Road) having a great deal for Iftar, so if you are a fan, then don't forget to give them a try too. 

Let me know if you know of other outlets too, I shall add it to the list
