Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre will serve Iftar with a twist at Firebird Diner with a feast of all-American cuisine, whilst Penrose Lounge will offer a more traditional mezze spread against the backdrop of Burj Khalifa views.

The hotels will also be encouraging everyone to #MoveThisRamadan with a series of light exercise sessions in picturesque settings or to unwind and relax with massages at The Pearl Spa. The Ramadan offerings will be available from the first sighting of the moon in late May until late June 2017.

Suq Restaurant

Named after the traditional Arabian marketplace, Suq restaurant invites guests into a warm and inviting atmosphere with its Arabesque appeal, offering Iftar and Suhour daily throughout the Holy Month in a cosy lounge setting.

Iftar at Suq will leave guests captivated, not only by the place but by the plentiful and suitably lavish food, all cooked right before their eyes.  Suq will welcome guests in with the warm sweet smell of freshly baked bread, and adding further to the atmosphere are the live cooking stations where guests can amble among the extensive array of cuisine, soaking in the bustle of activity and enjoying freshly prepared treats from the chefs as they present the best of traditional Iftar dishes and other global specialities.  

Among the selection will be highlights such as a rainbow of different kofta servings brimming either cheese, mushroom, pistachio or eggplant, adding extra relish to the traditionally served dish.  Alongside these servings will be cold mezze favourites such as watermelon carpaccio with smoked halloumi cheese as well as beetroot salad with avocado labneh foam.  As well as Arabic fare there is also a wide variety of global goodies, such as freshly made sushi and sashimi, and home-made pasta dripping in a variety of sauces.  There is also a live BBQ, which will be serving lamb kofta amongst other dishes.  If spices are what guests are seeking there is an Indian station, serving all the favourite flavours of India such as hot tandoori dishes and vegetarian medleys.  For those with a sweet tooth there is a dessert station with more than 18 different homemade ice creams and a creperie too.  If guests are too full to eat in the restaurant, Suq will be serving warm patisserie delicacies from the designated cake counter, to take away too.

During Suhour, guests can select dishes from an Arabic a la carte menu and enjoy being served right to their table. The Suhour menu will include added surprises as Suq is preparing kishek manakish. Served piping hot from the stone pizza oven and oozing with black truffle and a combination of Arabic cheeses, it is sure leave a deliciously rich after taste that will warm guests palates as they bite into the light crispy dough. Daily Suhour will also include an extensive selection on shisha flavours. All will be accompanied by a selection of Arabic juices, soft drinks and freshly brewed coffee.
