For the past few years we’ve been publishing a guide to late openings and special menus at halal restaurants in London during Ramadan. We’re back with our 2018 guide to where to have iftar and suhoor in London. We’ll be updating this list as the month goes on!

BIRD Camden , Islington and Shoreditch

BIRD will be serving their full menu this Ramadan at all of their branches for rapid service. Creators of the UK’s first fried chicken and waffle burger, BIRD’s menu also features more of our favourites – flavoursome wings, juicy burgers, cheesy Korean fries and indulgent desserts (we’d recommend the doughnut holes). All of the chicken served at BIRD is free range and halal.

Walk in anytime or book by calling the restaurant or by emailing ramadan@birdrestaurants.com.
