Restaurants offering Ifhtar in Merri-bek

Observed by our Muslim community members, the sacred month of Ramadan will begin on 22 March. Ramadan is a chance for people to reflect on their gratitude and refrain from consuming food and beverages from sunrise to sunset.


Each day of Ramadan ends with Iftar, where families and friends come together to break their fast. As part of Merri-bek City Council’s Ramadan celebration, we want to introduce you to restaurants around the municipality that will be open for Iftar.

From gorgeous Afghan food in Glenroy and tasty Thai in Coburg, to all the Middle Eastern sweets you can eat, below is a list of restaurants and their locations so you can gather and break the fast together.
