Suhoor in Abu Dhabi – 9 Best Venues to Experience in 2024

by Abu Dhabi Travel Planner Team

Whilst elaborate Iftar buffet spreads have become the norm in Abu Dhabi for breaking the fast during Ramadan, the lesser-known tradition of Suhoor is becoming a big deal in the capital for Abu Dhabi foodies.

Suhoor (also known internationally as Suhur, Sahūr, Suhūr, SahariSahrī or Sehri) is the pre-dawn meal eaten by fasting Muslims before sunrise. Far from being treated as an early breakfast in Abu Dhabi, it’s a middle-of-the-night dining experience.

No sooner have restaurants cleared the plates from Iftar gatherings than the tables reset and doors open for a long, relaxed evening of drinks and dining.

After a quiet couple of COVID-affected years for Abu Dhabi dining, Suhoor is back in style for Ramadan 2024. Here are the top 9 Abu Dhabi Suhoors we recommend you try for a unique and ambient experience this Ramadan.
