The Best Iftar Meals to Eat During Ramadan

Break your fast at these London restaurants

The holy month of Ramadan started on the evening of 10th March meaning Muslims across the city will be fasting, consuming no food or water until after the sun sets, for thirty days. Breaking the fast is traditionally done with dates, before iftar (the main evening meal) is shared with friends and fam. Here are the best iftar meals in London to eat during Ramadan.

Cue Point x The Gantry Stratford

Award-winning British Afghan smokehouse Cue Point is teaming up with The Gantry in Stratford to launch a series of iftar supper clubs every Saturday until the end of Ramadan. Cue Point will be taking over Union Social, the restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel, and serving up a menu of BBQ sharing plates. Expect the likes of oak-smoked beef ribs and chicken, as well as sides such as cheesy baked potato mash in saffron butter, smoked beets with sumac & lemon pickled red onion vinaigrette and cheesy smoked leeks with pomegranate & molasses dressing. There’ll also be Afghan naan with smoked aubergine and Afghan Dumplings with a twist.
