Are you looking for a list of restaurants in Abu Dhabi open during Ramadan 2020? The holy Islamic month is well underway and this means that most of the capital’s Muslim populace will be fasting from sunrise till sunset. During Ramadan, many restaurants in Abu Dhabi also remain closed from sunrise to sunset out of respect for Muslims who fast during this time. However, there are plenty of venues in the capital city that are open during daylight hours for those who won’t be fasting.
What restaurants are open for Ramadan in Abu Dhabi? From Filipino barbecue places to Indian eateries, MyBayut brings you a list of restaurants that are catering to customers during the Islamic holy month.
