Ramadan Kareem to all my Muslim friends and followers! Last night, we went to the first ever iftar event in Doha which coincided with the actual day of announcement of Ramadan itself. In case you don’t know, the announcement of Ramadan is based on the sighting of the crescent moon which marks the start of the month in the Islamic calendar.
Muslims around the world will be fasting from dawn until sunset for the whole month of Ramadan and iftar is the first meal that they will eat after this fast. Most of the restaurants in this region offers an iftar meal and Ramadanak Tent at the Grand Hyatt Doha was one of them.
I had a problem with my jaw last night (TMJ) so I wasn’t able to eat much except for salad and tiny portions of beef stroganoff and paneer which apparently were the highlight of the iftar buffet as per the food bloggers who attended the event. Having said that, I won’t be able to do a review of the food since I wasn’t able to eat much so I’m just going to give you some details about the Ramadanak Tent at Grand Hyatt Doha this year.
Ramadan at Grand Hyatt Doha captures the true essence of Arabian tradition with a warm ambiance offering the ultimate destination for an unforgettable Ramadan experience. From lavish iftar buffets to mouthwatering suhoors and live entertainment – Grand Hyatt is the ideal place to break your fast and spend your evenings with family and friends during the holy month.
This year Grand Hyatt decided to bring together all the chefs de cuisine from the hotel’s acclaimed restaurants to join forces and offer an international buffet with flavors catering to all tastes. A variety of live stations will be set up to provide a vast selection of Arabian flavors such as grills and traditional ouzi alongside international cuisines, the highlight of which will be exceptional Asian cuisine. Of course, Ramadanak’s buffet will be full of its famously extensive dessert selection to satisfy those with a sweet tooth.

Goes to show what kind of person I am, right? Hahaha!
Wow … it all looks so incredible! Shame you couldn’t eat much though .. hope you’re feeling better now?
I am feeling much better now thank you. I guess I should go back? :p
I had always understood that Ramadan is the worst time to visit the Middle East, at least for anyone who wants to eat during daylight. Maybe so, but the iftar experience sure would make up for a lot!
The Grand Hyatt Doha sure put out a beautiful spread for opening night. How does the menu differ through the rest of the month?
Yes, Ramadan is the worst time to visit the Middle East plainly because you can’t eat and drink during daylight out of respect to those who are fasting. Some cities consider it illegal even, so you don’t want to get into trouble for that.
They do change their menu constantly, just so they can offer different experience to diners. 🙂
