The Hilton Colombo is presenting their International Hummus Festival for the 2nd consecutive year in the form of an extravagant, mouth-watering international Ramadan dinner buffet at Graze Kitchen, which will be taking place from the 23rd of March to 20th of April 2023.

“The conceptual story behind the International Hummus Festival this year roots to our experience in UAE where we understood the real meaning of Ramadan” reveals Iromal Perera, Director of Cluster Marketing and Communication. “We understood that the festival is more about a celebration with family, your loved ones and people in order to bring them together rather than a ritual practiced only by Muslims every year.”

The International buffet features a wide range of cuisine from all around the world including the non-traditional and traditional Sri Lankan corner, the expanded Middle Eastern cuisine range along with the specialised Shawarma corner, the Indian corner with both veg and non-veg options, the Japanese and Western sections. The buffet is also accompanied with an eye-catching and mouth-watering array of desserts, mocktails and cocktails.
