This wasn't the worst meal I've ever eaten, but it certainly wasn't anywhere near one of the better meals I've ever eaten. The atmosphere was fun, the belly dancer was a surprise, and the drinks were great...but....the food...not so much. As a vegetarain I'm always glad to find places that offer veggie options. The options here were just too many... More

When the review of a restaurant starts with "don't go for the food", don't go for the food.The service was very good on a recent Fri night. the belly dancers were great entertainment and the highlight of the evening. The room was quite attractive and comfortable. The food was terrible. a small cold lamb shank, tasteless, was slapped on top... More

We stopped by for dinner after the theatre. The food was bland and lukewarm...chickpea tangine was basically a can of chickpeas with a bit of tomato, and day-old dry pita on the side. Saffron rice contained no saffron in the dish but rather what appeared to be a lot of turmeric. And to top it off - service was poor.... More

Had a dinner at the Sultans tent last week and it was okay. The atmosphere was fun, the dancer quite unique and friendly. The food was just okay nothing spectacular but if you have not had this type of food before then you may enjoy it better then I did. Waitress was friendly and very helpful.

definitely a theme night for belly dancing and tapas. you need a group of at least 6 and you are off on your own so not much mingle.

My wife and I had the Winterlicious menu on a Saturday night. The restaurant seemed to be short of staff as things were delayed and generally very slow. Food was really not good. Appetizers were bland, main course (lamb) was dry, bland, and lukewarm. Belly dancers were the only bright spot as they were quite entertaining and the crowd warmed... More

My husband and I found that the service was good. Ambiance was nice, however the food was definitely NOT delicious. Portions were quite small and you certainly don't get good value for your money. Entertainment was entertaining but short. I would definitely not be returning.

My boyfriend and I went on Saturday Jan 28th for Winterlicious and might I say it was VERY disappointing. We missed the belly dancing show at 6:30pm and ordered our pre-fixed menu. I paid $50 a person for 2 tiny samosas, a bowl of couscous with a tiny ladle full of lamb stew and 1 piece of baklava. My boyfriend... More

This is my third visit to this restaurant in several years. I love the ambiance, the food and the live show. Its a winning combination. This restaurant has been a Toronto institution for many years. This is why I was very surprised at how disorganized they seemed. We arrived 15 minutes after our reservation of 8:30pm. The manager and server... More

Description
Nestled in the heart of downtown Toronto's St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood, you dine on plush divans under lantern lit tent. Rich French - Moroccan food and belly dancing performances combine to make your next special event extra special.
The Sultan's Tent offers a variety of different seating opportunities throughout the week each with its own belly dance performance. While dining in The Sultan's Tent you choose from our fabulous four-course dinner menu that offers French-Moroccan influenced food to meet the most discerning palate.
For a more casual ala carte dining experience, join us in Cafe Moroc. Situated at the entrance to The Sultan's Tent, Cafe Moroc is reminiscent of 1930s Casablanca with its cream colours, dark wood accents and giant palms.
Groups of all sizes are welcome in both areas of our restaurant.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
