Ramadan Iftar at the Luxuriant Saraya Tent



It’s 2nd of Ramadan today, and the iftar trend is already raising its pace. For the Iftar in the holy month of Ramada experience today we opted for the serenity and calmness. Hence chosen the tranquillity that descends on the city with the iconic traditions. Yes, we are talking about Iftar and Suhour, hosted by the Saraya Tent. It is renowned for perfecting the splendor of Arabian traditions, elegance, and hospitality. Before food let us speak about the ambiance.





An elegant sea-facing venue that accommodates 700-800 persons is conveniently located in the center of the city. We thoroughly loved our run into this Iftar Tent against stunning views of the Arabian Gulf. It was bordered by landmarks such as the Etihad Towers, St Regis Abu Dhabi, and Corniche that make for the most picturesque setting.




Elegant décor in ivory hues, opulent furnishing, and traditional Ramadan music and entertainment are prominent features. It makes the Saraya Tent not only ideal for family and corporate Iftars, but also for large groups and gatherings. Hence if you are planning to call over your special friends and family for Iftar, it’s a great venue.



Warm Welcome and Ramadan Amenities:

Upon arrival were greeted with the encouraging red carpet treatment.  Inclusive of a traditionally dressed hostess that ushered us from foyer to dining area that features private & VIP majlises, family-style dining, and traditional table seating.



As the evening foster we also noticed alongside a spectacular spread of food and beverages, diners were feeling relax with a wide menu of fragrant shishas that come in plenty of flavors. Mr. K had his astute craving been taken care of by the very efficient staff .. well almost! Till he decided to play dad as kids went along with us. (I am so proud of this guy dotting father <3



Food Enthral:

This is my first experience having an Iftar at a lavish iftar tent, been set up by the culinary team from the award-winning Royal Catering.  And I must acknowledge that the expert Chefs team has created a mouth-watering Iftar buffet for this Saraya Tent, which offered other guests and us a truly inspiring experience for all senses. Hands down for brilliant hospitality.




You can never witness such professional display of Salad counter except for this place. After all the best presentation you can expect from UAE best catering company handled Iftar Tent. Vine leaves display, Macaroons towers, Popcorn with caramel & freshly baked bread station were few amongst many features we loved about tonight.



Live Stations:

Live cooking stations were featuring Ramadan favorites such as Shawarma, Manakish and Lamb Ouzi. My all-time favorite Arabic Mezze corner delighted all palates. There were some refreshing, colorful displays of salads and cold dishes, while seafood lovers can enjoy the signature baked Hammour. Myself, Hubby and children alike succumbed to the sweet temptation of the traditional Arabic sweets, Umm Ali and the exquisite chocolate station to conclude the feast.




It surely ended on a sweet & joyful note with additional treat of Moroccan tea. It was indeed a very lavish and an exquisite Buffet with the perfect environment. We spent hours post Iftar there and didn’t feel the time at all. Thanks, Royal Catering & especially Liz for your kind invite and of course the great company and hours long inspirational talks.
