Ramadan is a very busy time for the team at Seven Sands. VisitDubai takes a sneak peek into how the chefs prepare multiple dishes for iftar. 

Seven Sands is one of Dubai’s most popular Emirati restaurants and pulls out all the stops for visitors during the holy month.


All through the season, chefs work different shifts to present an array of traditional Ramadan recipes. The first team starts at noon and helps with preparations, with deliveries arriving for the iftar buffets served later that evening. The second shift starts at 4pm, which is also when ovens are fired up.

Ramadan can be a busy time, but chefs soon find their rhythm as the restaurant fills up with large groups of friends and families.

Seven Sands prepares an extensive range of hot and cold salads, hearty mains and delicious desserts each evening for their iftar buffet. While menus change regularly, a few popular dishes include tender grilled meats, ouzi (whole lamb with rice and yoghurt sauce) and harees (coarsely-ground wheat with meat). 

Every dish impresses thanks to rich marinades and a generous use of spices. For example, while ouzi rice is traditionally cooked in a mix of 14 spices, the Seven Sands recipe has a slightly different blend – all we know is that some of the spices include coriander, cumin, dried lemon and bay leaves.

Interest in local cuisine continues to grow and, if you're keen to taste more on your trip, pay a visit to Dubai's other incredible Emirati restaurants.
