Nobu London

This high end Park Lane sushi spot is serving a special iftar omakase. For £160 you get six courses of things like lobster salad, shrimp tempura rolls, and wagyu cup sushi. Just select ‘Iftar Omakase’ when booking your table.

Khaao

A food stall with vendors at Camden Market and Hawley Wharf (Camden’s indoor/outdoor food market) that sells excellent cheesy naan melts filled with things like chicken tikka and lamb seek is offering a special iftar menu on Fridays and Saturdays at their Hawley Wharf location.

Every day of Ramadan, you’ll find a range of different dishes on Mihbaj’s set menu. This Middle Eastern spot in Paddington is serving everything from kabset lahem to fajita chicken. Keep an eye on their Instagram to know which £25 feast will be served before booking.

During the month of Ramadan, this Yemeni spot in West Brompton with a mix of tables and traditional Yemeni-style floor seating will be serving set menus starting from £18, where you can choose between mains like chicken mandi or lamb haneeth, as well as a range of starters. And if the masoob is on for dessert, make sure you don’t miss it.

We’re fans of this Pakistani spot in Tooting, not just for the OTT samosa chaat that arrives atop a cauldron filled with smoke, or the mocktails that are presented in a top hat, but for the top-tier Pakistani classics. During Ramadan, you can get a £35 set menu which includes the creamy butter chicken, or a buffet starting from £22 if you head to their Southall branch.

Meet Bros Steakhouse

For £65 during the week and £85 on the weekends, this Malaysian steakhouse in Paddington has an iftar buffet that includes their top hits like rich beef rendang and baked sea bass with sambal. Plus, they’ve set up a spacious prayer area.

We’re very into this Caribbean spot in Camden and its jerk beef Sunday roast—which they’re serving every day during Ramadan. Which means the jerk beef, all the trimmings, and that excellent gravy, any day of the week—all for £26.

Chicos

At this Brick Lane burger spot, there are new additions to the menu during Ramadan. They’ve added a san sebastian cheesecake with toppings including pistachio and Lotus Biscoff, as well as karak chai after iftar.

Ever since it first opened, Beit El Zaytoun, a Lebanese restaurant and shisha cafe in Harlesden, has been a hub for Muslims to gather during Ramadan, for a hummus-filled iftar or a shawarma-packed suhoor. This year you can expect a £19 set menu with daily changing specials like lamb kabseh, chicken taouk, and plenty of mezze to snack on.

A spacious Syrian restaurant on Uxbridge Road, with a name that translates to ‘the old days’ and a rustic, exposed brick dining room to match, Ayam Zaman is an excellent spot for Middle Eastern classics. This year they’re offering a £25 Ramadan buffet that changes daily, with things like kebbeh labanieh and maklouba, and it’s the perfect spot for a big group get-together.

The Great Chase

This fully halal restaurant in Islington made a name for itself thanks to the excellent weekend roast dinners, and during Ramadan, you can expect a set menu starting from £45 including platters with aged rolled sirloin, slow-cooked lamb, and a confit chicken leg. Alternatively, get their group sharing menu for all of that plus beef wellington or rib-eye steak.

Berenjak serves excellent Iranian mazeh and buttery kababs in a corridor-like space on Romilly Street. This year they’re hosting a late-night iftar menu that’s running from 10pm onwards and includes a feast of their top hits for £40 per person.

Stuffed Naans at Naan Staap

Naan Staap

This Pakistani cafe with locations in Gants Hill, Ilford, Whitechapel, Green Street, and Harrow is all about naan stuffed with everything from aaloo masala and chicken karahi to Nutella and Biscoff. And this year for Ramadan, you can get a samosa, channa chaat, one stuffed paratha or naan, and a drink for £15.

Balkh Restaurant

During Ramadan, this Afghan restaurant in Kenton is serving a buffet including things like lentil soup, chicken shish, kofta korma curry, and Qabuli rice for under £20 per person.
