Great place to have dinner
Great ambiance. The food was good. Great service and the dance was entertaining. Would go recommend. To enjoy, you'll need to spend at least $130 (before tax) for 2.

One of the main attractions
One of the main attractions to the Sultans Tent is the Belly Dancers. Unfortunately, on this night the entertainment was the weakest link in the chain.

A belly full
Went for a mother's day dinner; restaurant was busy and the atmosphere is nice with the mock tents and bazaar theme. We had a four course prix fixe menu option with lots of choices.
During the dinner, there was a belly dancing show and they did a good job of getting the diners involved. It was entertaining and fun to watch while waiting in between courses. This is really the reason to come here, I think.
The food was decent. I had some chilled beet soup, crab cakes with frog legs, couscous royale and a creme brule dessert. Everything tasted good, but the spice level was toned down (or slightly overwhelmed with salt, not sure which) and the kebabs were a little dried out. Overall, decent Moroccan/French inspired food.

I knew what I wanted and The Sultan's Tent had exactly that, good food and service. It was busy and service was better than expected, considering that. The menu is one of the best options in Toronto as the flavours are exotic, different yet good quality and fresh. It's always worth a visit.

Thank you for a great dining
Thank you for a great dining experience! The service we received in the cafe maroc area was wonderful and the meals were great. As a vegetarian I also really liked that you had veg options on the summerlicious menu as not every restaurant does this.

Great Ambience and show - food ok!
First time at the Sultan's Tent, the ambience and the belly dancers were exactly as promised. The service was perfect, not intrusive but also not lacking. The food was really just okay. We loved the first two courses, flavourful and well prepared. The third course (the mains, braised lamb & beef short rib) were really bland and disappointing. The fourth course was just okay too.. but we loved the Moroccan mint / green tea. Still, I am happy to have tried it, not sure I would go back for a second show.

A great place for a romantic
A great place for a romantic outing for two - lovely atmosphere to talk and enjoy exotic surroundings, food and drink.
Would recommend and can't wait to go again!

We were visiting Toronto for the weekend and like always, rely on Open Table to provide us with good restaurant options. We always try to do something with some cultural flair and the Sultan's Tent was spot on. We were seated right in the main aisle for the entertainment - which was wonderful. The belly dancers engaged with the diners which made for an overall wonderful experience.
The food was outstanding and I was impressed with the knowledge of our waiter as my companion has some serious food allergies - he was able to guide us in the menu items we should avoid.
A real gem and should be tried by anyone in the downtown area.

Good for one time
If you are looking for a decent food and extra entertainment, go there.
Unusual Eastern decor.
Food is good, and those dishes with extra charge are even better. Servers are doing their best!
Belly dance is JUST OK, no more, but we did not expect too much after reading reviews.
So, we had a good time, but I am not looking forward to go there again soon

Excellent night and great food
Great place for a romantic evening or fun for groups. Food was fabulous, service was great and entertainment was fun. Need to make a reservation far enough ahead of time and get a booth in the back for the full experience.

Amazing, amazing, and amazing.
The Sultan's Tent was the perfect place to host a friend's birthday. When we entered, we were immediately impressed by the dark ambiance and lavish decor of drapery and pillows. My group was seated in a cozy corner offside the main floor where we had a great view of the belly dancers when the entertainment began. They even grabbed hold of our birthday girl! The service was wonderful, very knowledgeable and attentive to our table. The food was amazing!! I had the lamb with garlic potatoes and roasted veg, and it was cooked exactly the way I ordered. We also had the chevre crostini, salads, cocktails and a seafood saffron dish that was great. Great for celebrations, and we loved their sister location next door, Berber.

Delighted with the overall experience. Food was exotic but allows most palates to experiment without too many extreme risks. The prix fixe format allows most tables to be served at the same time. However the choices were generous and allowed for a wide variety of tastes. I recommend the Moroccan Cigars especially for first time visitors. It's a food not the big stinky stuff.
Ambience and décor were intriguing. If you haven't been, put it on your list. Not that expensive when liquor, taxes and tip are included. Very attentive service.
Oh Yes One last item. Don't worry about dessert, the Belly Dancers were in a word superb.

Right on the mark!
Lots of food in the 4 course meal. We had the chicken marrakesh and the merguez royale. Delicious. The dessert was the standard one it was okay, would consider upgrading for something different. The bellydancing was the right amount, not too sure not too little. It did add to the overall experience.
The wine list was extensive, but at no point did the staff push the alcoholic drinks on us. The service was polite and efficient.
We had an "aisle" seat and it was fine. It was amusing to watch a group of people who didn't seem to be enjoying the company of each other, but rather their devices, and then they wanted to close the curtains to the tent they had.
Will consider going back with a group of people.
