A tempting taster of Ramadan at the Ritz-Carlton

On Tuesday the ILQ team attended the preview of the Ritz-Carlton legendary 1001 Arabian Nights Ramadan experience which showcased the regional dishes, refreshing salads and tempting desserts on offer.


While the tent itself wasn’t there to give us a true idea of the seating arrangements, the live music, cooking stations and attentive service ensured we came away with a sense of whether the Ritz-Carlton would make it on our Ramadan tent list, and we’re pleased to say it’s a firm YES.


Breaking the fast is a special occasion which you share with friends and family so you want your experience to be memorable for all: here the presentation and quality of food on offer was superb, and there was plenty of choice to keep all tastes happy.


As a salad lover I was pleasantly surprised to see that they’d paid attention to ensure that the salads look fresh and inviting. There were lots of Arabian dishes to try from tasty cheese and chili filled saj breads to harees and lamb majboos, while international flavours were also well catered for with creamy risotto and spicy seafood laksa.


The diet was put on hold for another day (yet again) as we sampled the range of delicious Arabic desserts and cute and very moreish desserts – the eclairs and um ali are worth the calories and the extra hour in the gym.

The Ritz-Carlton’s Ramadan tent in Al Wosail ballroom will be opened on the 7th of June 2016. Iftar will start at sunset, approximately 6:30 - 8:00 pm, and Sohour will be served at 8:30 pm - 1:00 am. Iftar and Sohour are priced at QAR 216 per person that includes Ramadan juices buffet and water service. 50% savings for kids aged between 5 and 12, complimentary for kids aged 4 and under.
