Grand Night Ramadan Tent at the St Regis is an iftar hit

If you’re looking for a lively, never-ending buffet of iftar delights, head to the Grand Night Ramadan Tent at the St Regis, Abu Dhabi.

I was content perusing the food on offer at the grand buffet in the middle of the tent — but then I saw another buffet just as big at the far end of the tent — with completely different dishes on offer.

You’ll have no problem finding food to love here, but my favourite was the rosemary leg of lamb. It was succulent and served with savoury au jus. The Goan fish curry was also notable.

The oud players, the decor and the setting — right on the beach — all add up to a memorable night out. You can get henna at the entrance to the tent, which was a hit with my 5-year-old.

The iftar is priced at Dh220. For reservations, call 02 694 4444.
