Ramadan 2022: The Berkshire restaurants that stay open late

Ramadan Mubarak! With the holy month now well underway, Muslims are encouraged to spend time with loved ones and focus on their spirituality. The sacred lunar period lasts for approximately one month and is a time for believers to remember the poor and needy, with fasting an integral part of this.

During Ramadan fasting, food and water must only be consumed after sunset and before dawn, which means adapting to new eating habits and often eating much later at night. BerkshireLive has sourced some local restaurants that have extended opening hours in support of those celebrating.

These are a selection of restaurants available in Berkshire. Know of somewhere else that you enjoy in the town that’s perfect for Ramadan? Let us know in the comments section at the bottom of this article.

Ramadan is far more than just a fast from dawn to sunset, it is a time for peace, reflection and abstinence, with Muslims dedicating themselves to prayer in an attempt to get closer to Allah.

It’s also a period when a commitment to positive habits and behaviour are expected, with no smoking, gossiping or swearing permitted.

Ramadan began on April 2 and will conclude with Eid celebrations taking place after the first sighting of the new moon, expected on May 3.
