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.

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)

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.

  5. Hey, my name is Martha, I just wanna share my testimony of how I got a loan of (100,000USD) at just 3% interest that kept my business running again, a friend advised me to get a loan from SUN TRUST BANK in USA that they are giving out loans to individuals, companies, realtor and corporate bodies and stop seeking for loan from fake loan/insurance companies who will eventually turn out to be scammers.
    She introduced me to Mr James Butland the manager of SUNTRUST BANK who took my details and sent me the terms and conditions of the loan, which I agreed to.
    At first I thought I wasn’t gonna be granted the loan but eventually I was given and today my business is flourishing, I promised him that I will spread the good news to the world which I am doing right now and he said they are willing to help any individual or company that seeks a loan no matter the amount needed (5,000 to 100,000,000 USD). Personal loans, Debt Consolidation Loan, health/medical loan, Venture Capital, Business Loan, Educational Loan, Home Loan and Loan for any reason and urgent needs. He promised a 100% guarantee that every applicant will receive their loan at the end of this loan transaction.There is no security check, no credit check
    you can contact the bank via email: or phone +1(781) 656 7042
