We had Ramadan Iftar at The Address Dubai Mall during the third week of the month. It was such an outstanding location and the views were magnificent to begin with. The food buffet was beyond expectations and tasted really nice. Everything was of high quality even Ramadan drinks and the fresh orange juice. Grills & shrimps were delicious, and cheese kunafa & umm ali were just on point. Our waiter was always there to help us & we were very satisfied with their service. Overall, it was a night to remember and we would come back again for another buffet. Thanks a lot! More
