Looking For Fun

We went to a late dinner (girls night out). Our server was great super nice. The belly dancers we awesome!!! They pulled us onto the dance floor with them, It was a good entertaining night in the city. Mind you the food was only Good for the price $$$$ 65 dollars just for me and I had no drinks with that:( big time downer. Atmosphere was great though. Big bench like table areas with pillows. Nice! That's about it though can't really remember the food. I know I had the Lamb, it was OK.

Great service and great place

What a great place for a special occasion! We took our wedding party to dinner at The Sultan's Tent and it was great! The belly dancing was very entertaining and provided some fun enteratinment for the group. The food is ALWAYS wonderful! I would recommend the Maftoul and the Beef Short Rib...they are wonderful. If you are planning a private party like a bridal/baby shower or a birthday dinner this is a great place to go for something out of the ordinary. The management team is great to deal with and the service is always top notch :)

a great dining experience

I've enjoyed lunch and dinner here quite a few times. I've never got around to writing a review. I want to tell everyone my favourite dishes! If you've never been try the Maftoul, also known as Moroccan Cigars. You'll seriously want to order more. The Maroc Frites are extremely addictive. They add different herbs and spices to them that make them delicious. For lunch I generally have the Steak Baguette with the fries. For dinner, I would go with the Rack of Lamb. The lamb itself has tons of flavour and the honey sauce it's served with is quite tasty. The food is great, service is very good, and the ambiance is well put together. Oh yeah and the belly dancers are a great touch too.

Loved It!!

I can't think a a better place to dine. The food is delicious, the restaurant is decorated so beautifully and the belly dancing is a great entertainment bonus. It puts a some flare into what would typically be a regular dinner night out.

Amazing

My brother got married a few months back and hosted the rehearsal dinner at The Sultan's Tent. It was amazing and we all had a great time. The food was delicious & the atmosphere was beautiful. We all had fun belly dancing!! It was a blast!

disappointing

Went with a couple of friends and family for a friends birthday last night! Waiter had an attitude I have never seen before. The food was not that great... Very blend you don't feel any African spices in it... The price was way to high.... And one belly dancer that I can dance better then... They will never see me again that's for SURE!!!

Didn't Know I Ordered A Side Of BRUTAL W/ My Dinner

Heard about this place for a bit & decided to finally try it out... Big disappointment. Food was sub-par, not bad, but definitely not worth the prices & as Moroccan as a Loblaw's hummus dip. They definitely get you on the add-ons, which is a joke, considering the prices of the add-ons are ON TOP of your base $39.99 meal. Show was OK, but nothing to rave about. Service was brutal... 2+ hours for a table of 2... And the worst part, AUTOMATIC SERVICE CHARGE OF 15%... for a TABLE OF 2?? What type of establishment does that? Definitely felt gouged... For the prices, there are TONS of better places to go... And even if the food was cheaper, I still think there are much better places out there to spend your money & time...

Great service, food & ambiance

Having been to Sultans Tent many time I have to say that this is one of my favorite Toronto restaurants. The food, the service, the belly dancing on Saturday night and the overall experience is great. From the couscous, to the lamb to the appetizers, everything they have on the menue is great. With only steps from BCE place & the Sony centre this is a very well located place.

Great Decor

great decor!!!! we had great service both times i've went over the last 2 years. the waitress/waiters are very nice. music is not fitting to the sultan's tent as its not a very middle eastern vibe compared to what the decor and presentation is like when being promoted. its basically a very much bar type crowd and scene - except with an eastern decor. the food - don't bother. i've tried the hummus, chipotle salad, and their beef sandwich and the morrocan mint tea. your better off eating elsewhere if your about the food. the tea is NOT morrocan tea, they put peppermint with the mint. I was expecting ONLY mint in my tea but the peppermint killed it for me. overall nothing wrong with the place if your into the bar scene. I am not a bar person, thus this place is not appealing to me anymore. decor is very nice though.

TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! I had an awful experience with this place and will never return. i had booked my mom's 60th birthday (surprise party) there for 15 people. Only a few days before the party I received a call that they "forgot" they booked a wedding on the same night and my reservations would have to be canceled. Not only that but all they could offer me instead was a a round of drinks on the house. The staff was rude, unprofessional and irresponsible, and I would NOT reccommend this place for anyone planning on having a function here.

Food good, entertainment better...

The food was generally pretty good and the menu offered some more interesting-sounding than average things (which I appreciate--I love trying new things), but let's face it, the food is GROSSLY overpriced. And my choice of main (rack of lamb with prune sauce and couscous) really wasn't very good....but on the flipside, the Morrocan tea was a wonderful experience. However, this is a place where ambiance and entertainment rule all. There are belly dancers that dance around as you lounge about in your lovely sultan inspired tents (yes, you can actually sit in a very Morracan inspired tent with pillows and other appropriate Morracan decor). This is really fun and beautiful--although I was disappointed that there was only cheesey Arabian techno music playing as the bellydancing went on, as opposed to a live band (would have made things much more authentic)... All in all, you are paying for the whole experience I guess--food, decor and entertainment. This place helps you "escape" for the night, and that's worth something, right?

underwhelmed

*** As with the reviewer below me, my experience prompted me to give out my e-mail, details, etc. to a site that I only seldom use in order to write my first restaurant review. Take that as you will... I question the positive reviews from generic, possibly made-up, user names, but perhaps you should be the judge after reading a page or two of the reviews. I'll start off by saying that you should consider going for the entertainment value, as in, not the food. Anyone recommending the place purely on the value or uniqueness of the food is either very misguided, non-objective, or has yet to taste many restaurants. But I digress... the belly dancing is amusing, but only if you have never seen belly dancing before, which was the case for some people in my party. We had never really seen it and I thought that was perhaps the best part of my experience. On with the food... the food was severely overpriced. I felt like it was the keg or med grill packaged with couches and purple/gold drapes - certainly nothing above those two very generic names, therefore, the food alone does not warrant the $50 per person bill. To add insult to injury, certain courses are very embellished on the menu. While "bowl of olives" does the appetizer dish justice, the "morrocan treat" for dessert consisted simply of half an orange without the peel, and milano cookie dipped in chocolate at one end. Oh wait... Milano cookies are already dipped in chocolate at one end. Therefore, just half an orange and a milano cookie. The creme brullee was alright, but not worth the extra $4.00. I felt that I was paying a decent value for the extras, and had been simply charged $50 for the belly dancing show and a plate of lamb. On with the service... no complaints here. What you would expect from a place that charges this price. CONCLUSION - go for the dancing, if you have never seen belly dancing before, or will never see it again... as you should not expect the food to wow you, or justify the price by itself.

Why is this place so busy?

Wow, what can I say about this place? I joined my wife with her co-workers on the 13th of March and was sadly disappointed. So much it prompt me to write my first restaurant review. I am far from being financially set however do not mind spending money on a positive dining experience. The Sultan’s Tent, severely disappointed. The GOOD: Good old friend Lagavulin never disappoints and in this restaurant I needed him more then ever! The Bad: Service and entertainment. The wait staff was extremely pushy and we were unable to finish our food to attempt to sit another table in that night. I get the paying extra for entertainment deal. They had two girls dancing at below par at best with no live music. The Ugly: The food! I ended up paying $200 for two people and feel like I was ripped off $170. Even my old friend lagavulin wasn't enough to enjoy my night. The food was very bland and was overrated. I was told that the rack of lamb was "rated the best in Toronto" (suckered like fellow reviewer Samantha) and was very disappointed. I'm not sure why this place is busy, however I will not return and do not recommend this place to anyone.

My boyfriend and I went for Valentine's day and we were both extremely disappointed by the food. I had the mushroom bisque to start which was very bland. The chevre brulee was decent- but they only gave one tiny little crostini to spread the goat cheese over. I had the chicken wrapped in phyllo pastry - stuffed with stilton cheese and spinach which was also VERY BLAND and the phyllo pastry was burnt on the edges. My boyfriend had the Morrocan pillows which were nothing more than rice wrapped cabbage rolls in a BLAND tomato sauce. We were both expecting an explosion of morrocan flavours but no dice. After a disappointing dinner, we were looking forward to The French Kiss dessert- a vanilla, pomegranate and pistachio ice cream cake, however once again we were disappointed. The entire dessert was bland- even the vanilla ice cream! The best part of the meal, sadly was the Morrocan mint tea at the end. The belly dancers were a nice treat, however when they pulled up one of the patrons to dance, she put the belly dancer to shame! The patron had better dance moves than the hired dancer. Save your money folks! Although the atmosphere is great, the food sucks!

We were invited by a freind, a group of 16, the waiter was very rude from beginning, I asked him wat kind of juises they offer, he replied : cranbery, he did not even bother to mention any thing else. he was abrupt and had no appreciation what so ever for the business, all of us were upset with his attitude, the meal was a joke, the soup was a sample, bearly one quarter of the bowl, the rest of the meal was soo sweet, nothing like north african, and finally the tea was horrible, we haVE TRIED IT BEFORE, AND yesterdays may be as we were the last shift of the day, we got the leftovers of the whole day with weard taste, we asked the waiter to pour the tea the morocon style, he replied abruptly, let me serve every body first and then i will do, we never saw him again, mind you nobody could finish his small glass of tea!!! The belly dancer was a joke!!!! Definitely not going again, and my advise to all: SPEND YOUR MONEY SOME WHERE ELSE WHERE YOU GET VALUE FOR WHAT YOIU SPEND AND NOT TO LEAVE UPSET.

I was at Sultan's tent on Friday at 7.30 pm...

I was at Sultan's tent on Friday at 7.30 pm seating with 9 other people. 1) The food was pricey. It appears you have to pay $40 per person but lot of the decent items on the menu is an upgrade. 2) The food did not taste authentic, second course and main course was sweet. I have had Moroccan food before and the food did not taste the same. 3) There were only two performers for the entire restaurant and half of the time, they were not performing, they were inviting guests up to dance... so we were paying to watch guests attempting to belly dance. The performance was short (30 minutes or less). 4) The service was very good though.

If you love paying $40 for chunky soup...

Went here for a birthday dinner. Lovely atmosphere, beautiful looking. Food....another story. The set course is very misleading. You must pay extra to order anything that seems appetizing, but this also proved a poor choice. The most interesting event of the night was when I ordered the "Moroccan stew" which cost extra. They must have run out, because instead I got a small serving of Campbell's Chunky Soup in its place. Yes. The beef variety. Imagine my shock? The rest of the meal was equally bland and boring. Wildly overpriced. The belly dancing was ok, the girl was nice, but the show was BORING. What a waste of money. A poor poor choice.

outstanding

I had heard of this restaurant by friends and they insisted I take my celebration party there. From the moment my guests and I sat down, we knew we were in for a special evening. The service was outstanding, from the host to our server, all made us feel very special. The rack of lamb I had was probably the best ever. All my guests have called to say what a great "special" evening it was. I will not only return, but this is our new celebration place, and will recommend to all my friends.
