Food and drink outlets given later closing times during Ramadan

Food and drink outlets such as cafes and restaurants will be permitted to remain open until 3:00am during Ramadan this year, local media has reported.

The extended closing time has been approved in order to cater for late dining during the Islamic holy month, Economic Development Minister Ahmed Mohamed has told Sun Online.

Retail stores will still be required to be closed by 11:00PM as normal.
