If you are looking for a traditional iftar this Ramadan season, that is a whole lot more than your run-of-the-mill hotel buffet, then look no further than Capital Majlis at ADNEC. 

Returning to Abu Dhabi for the first time since 2018, Capital Majlis brings a traditional iftar within a contemporary setting, which is a perfect place to slow down, connect with friends and family and celebrate the holy month of Ramadan. 


ADNEC is located on Khaleej Al Arabi Street, with easy access from downtown Abu Dhabi and convenient parking facilities. Guests can either park directly outside in Capital Plaza for a fee or use the conveniently located car park A and B which are free of charge to those attending Capital Majlis.


Taking up the entirety of Hall 2, Capital Majlis has a large dining area with either coffee table-styled seating or café-type seating located around the buffet. It also has several private dining areas which can host up to 18 guests in an informal yet relaxing setting, as well as a private VIP majlis.

Before you enter there is a large welcome area perfect for meeting guests and enjoying a mocktail and some dates to break your fast.

With traditional light fixtures and beautiful coloured lights, the main dining room has been transformed for a magical Ramadan experience. With a central stage you will be entertained throughout by traditional musicians and large screens for entertainment during suhoor. There are also prayer rooms available for both men and women.


Break your fast with family or friends with this impressive buffet filled with Middle Eastern favourites and international delicacies. Enjoy a wide range of soups, salads, and appetisers, before sampling the main dishes and the four live stations, as well as the beautifully cooked lamb ouzi and biriyani. 

At the back of hall make sure to check out the live stations, with a host of friendly chefs cooking up a storm. Enjoy beautifully cooked pasta made to order, 3 aromatic curries cooked to your liking, a Fattah, and foul & falafel station.

You will not want to miss the stunning display of colourful desserts, with towering displays of pastel macarons, iced choux buns, and baklava and possibly the best date pudding in Abu Dhabi. Finish your iftar feast with trip to the Turkish delight and Arabic sweets section to enjoy with a coffee or tea. 

A selection of traditional Ramadan drinks, mocktails, fresh juices, and soft drinks will be served to your table throughout the meal.

Iftar is served from sunset to 8:30 daily and prices at AED185 pp, with kids (6-12 years) eating at half price and under 5’s dining for free. And for you early birds if you dine on the first week of Ramadan you can enjoy a saving of 15% off per iftar package.
