Top 9 Lunch Places During Ramadan in Dubai
Visiting Dubai is an exciting adventure any time of the year. Even during Ramadan! Ignore the myths that stores in Dubai close down for Ramadan – it’s not true. Tourists are always welcome to visit during the Holy Month and there is a myriad of areas where people can enjoy a nice lunch before seeing the iconic sights.
While most restaurants and cafes do close from sunrise to sunset in respect of Ramadan, TLT Limo put together a list of the nine places that will be serving lunch. Though we would like to note that all restaurants in the UAE serve soft drinks only until those observing Ramadan, have broken their daily fast.
