Toronto Ramadan Restaurant Iftar and Suhoor Guide 2016

Our Ramadan Restaurant Iftar and Suhoor Guide for 2016 is here!

Ramadan Restaurant Iftar

To help get you get prepared, we’re bringing back our Toronto Ramadan Restaurant Iftar Guide!

Four years ago we introduced a concise guide on halal restaurants around the GTA open for Ramadan, divided it by area (North, East, South, West) and provided the following details: hours, iftar plates available, prayer area available, masjid near by, extended hours, Ramadan iftar specials, etc.

The response has been amazing, so we’re very pleased to be bringing it back  for the fifth year 🙂

However, due to a few life changes for us here at Halalfoodie.ca, we have slowed down operations and need your help to help to get this info out to the community! If you have restaurant info to add or update, please email us at info@halalfoodie.ca!

If you’re looking for for places that are open late or open until suhoor, look out for blue text below! See green text for buffets!

Just a note of caution, like all of our reviews, we don’t claim halal status or certification for any restaurant. We are Muslims who love food and share our opinions while trying our best to adhere to halal regulations. As usual, we try not to promote places that aren’t fully halal (read more here). Please always do your OWN investigating before eating at any of the places listed below in the Ramadan Restaurant Iftar Guide or anywhere else on our site.

 

NOTE: Our Ramadan Restaurant Iftar Guide will be updated throughout the month of Ramadan, so check back often!

If your restaurant wants to be on this list, send an email to: info@halalfoodie.ca!

  • Went to Flavors Cafe for suhoor/breakfast the other day and we were very impressed with the quality of the food. The service was excellent (I was fairly grumpy having been woken up from a nap around 1:30 AM) and the food was perfect. My husband can’t stop raving about it to everyone he runs into. We plan to make Saturday AM suhoors a tradition for the rest of Ramadan!


  • Nafi Haque on July 20, 2013

    You should add ‘Suko Thai’ in the list. There are two locations in downtown of this restaurant.


    • The one on Front is halal, the other one is not.


    • Halal Foodie on July 2, 2015

      Unfortunately both locations serve alcohol so can not add them to this list.


  • I couldnt find Galito’s at vaughan/woodbridge location. Please let us know.


  • Foodie Mom on July 3, 2014

    As always very informative. And hats off to the brothers and sisters who are not only fasting but also providing us with awesome food choices. May Allah SWT grant them barakah in their Rizq and help them to be able to do their ibadah in this blessed month. To all reviewers kindly be positive. If there is anything that you were not happy with please approach the restaurant owner/manager. I am sure they would truly appreciate it. Month of mercy. So be forgiving too.


    • Halal Foodie on July 4, 2014

      JazakAllah – thank you so much for the kind words 🙂

      Ameen – and also, I agree – we should all try and help by offering constructive criticism.


  • Where is that


  • Does anyone know if Bombay Bhel in Richmond Hill is halal? I love that place but I’ve heard mixed things about it being halal. Say it isn’t so!


  • Avoid going to Kara Mia in Mississauga during Ramadan. Ordered 20 mins before iftaar and didn’t get our food for another hour.


  • Add Calzone’s Hut in Mississauga!! There really good:)

  • How about big mama’s?


  • We had a wonderful iftar last night at the new Galitos on Dixie/401. We were served complimentary rose water, samosas and dates and our meal was served right on time. 🙂


  • You should add kandahar kabab in Scarborough/Markham area. They provide a very good complementary iftar.


  • EXCELLENT WORK!!! It’s so much easier to find halal restaurants we didn’t know exisited….
    Also, flavors in Pickering is amazing, we have been there this Ramzan 3 times already, their Philly steak and wings are delicious…and their chicken cheesefries and steak cheesefries r to die for:)


  • i think you guys are missing Continental Grand Buffet and Sahara restaurants for Buffet option


    • oops never mind continental buffet is there, its sahara that you are missing


  • Chick Felay in Brampton closed down awhile ago but there’s Roosters on Queen and Bramalea which is also HMA certified and serves the same type of peri peri chicken. Very good!

  • Please add Chopaan Grill, Afghan restaurant. They offer buffet for Ramadhan for $18. Amazing place. Have place for prayer. Call on weekend for reservation.


  • Black ox bistro only offered two pretty hard dates for iftar after we asked for it. There were no complimentary finger food or drinks. In fact the server suggested we buy appetizer as that is the only meal guaranteed to be at the table for iftar…I asked if they offer any dates or anything…she said yes and gave as the aforementioned dry dates.
