The holy month of Ramadan is quickly approaching and Muslims around the world are preparing to observe the month-long fast. Ramadan is based on the lunar calendar and begins at the sighting of the crescent moon. It’s expected to start on Saturday 2 April and end Sunday 1 May, but it could come a day later if the moon isn’t sighted.
During this period, Muslims abstain from food and drink during daylight hours. We’ve compiled a list of halal restaurants for people to enjoy when they break their fast after dusk. Each restaurant has been selected for its variety of halal food and drink.
