So I planned a date day with my wife and wanted to end the day with a great meal. She loves authentic Moroccan food and so I booked this restaurant hoping we would experience a great meal and a belly dancing show. The front end service was welcoming and the complimentary coat check was a nice touch. We were seated in the main hall and not the nice tent areas, it felt like we were in the way of the staff as the ran up and down the hall.

The young man (Bill showed Team L ) took our order and talked up the menu like we were about to experience the best Moroccan food without travelling thousands of miles. The appetizers were not great and the seafood was over cooked - I will mention the night was a fixed menu so we suspect that the food was mass produced rather than cooked to order. My main was a beef tagine and other than couscous the dish had no Moroccan flavor. My wife had the cod tagine and had similar lack of flavor. Our server did not check on us so I waved the manager (Georgio) over, he was too busy and surprisingly provided complimentary Moroccan cigars to offset the poor dinner - my wife does not eat red meat and so this was not a great choice. The desert came and once again with no interaction from our server and therefore no tea or coffee. The manager once again was called over and he had another server bring a coffee and pot of Moroccan mint tea. Let me say the bitter taste was too strong to correct, maybe their standard menu and a weeknight dinner may be different.

The belly dancing show was interesting and as my wife had taken lessons she enjoyed the show. The dancers were engaging the patrons so I thought this somewhat helped end the night on a positive note.

The manager gave me his card and stated to come back and he would take care of the appetizers. After spending 2.5 hours being ignored and a drastic lack of Moroccan flavor in the fixed menu the odds of us making the hour drive back to Toronto to not enjoy a meal is less than our next Lotto win.

Ambience and most of the staff were great! Cocktails were awesome but somewhat expensive. Food was below quality expectations for my group, especially when you factor in the weekend Prix Fixe ($59)/pp. The belly dancer was very talented, but we were seated at her outer range, so we only saw her for a few seconds at a time. Otherwise, we had to look through other booths and could only see her partially. We were there for a birthday (and I noted that on the reservation and mentioned it to the waiter) yet it wasn’t acknowledged in any way.

I have been making reservations using OpenTable for the past 4 years. I have yet to encounter a restaurant with such poor customer service, food, and value. I was on the fence because of the mixed reviews on here and as well as on Google for this restaurant. But bottom line is this: I would NOT recommend this restaurant. Not only did they not honour my OpenTable reservation, my company and I were there for over 2 hours due to their very slow service. At the time of reservation, we also indicated that we will be bringing a cake and confirmed with the restaurant that they would cut the cake for us. After our dinner, we asked the waiter to bring out our cake. The waiter said they could not cut the cake for us and just handed it back to us in the original box. Clearly, a lot of discordance with what they promised at the time of reservation vs in-restaurant experience. Their portion sizes were also very small. I have a severe gluten allergy and asked my pitas to be put on the side as opposed to on top of my dish. The restaurant did not listen and put it on top of my dish. When I asked them to re-make the dish, they refused to do it. All in all, avoid this restaurant and place at all costs.

They were massively understaffed the night we went. It was my wife's birthday and although they called me twice to confirm the reservation and I asked specifically for an accessible table and a birthday dessert it did not happen. We were seated in the far back of the restaurant facing the kitchen door. Although others had birthdays noted with dessert, they did not do this for us. It was a bit upsetting for my wife and I. A lost opportunity for them to make a long term customer.

Sultan's Tent has a fabulous atmosphere and it is a fun night out of entertainment. The music; however, was somewhat too loud for easy conversation and food lacked a bit of flavour. NB. The menu has GF options but it is not celiac safe. My appetizer was a seafood medely which had a GF symbol and when it arrived slices of pita were all piled up in the dish. The bellydancers were fabulous and service was great. I would recommend for a group.

Food was okay, hummus had no flavour, and our chicken dishes were dry and needed salt, beet salad was great.

The service was the WORST I’ve ever encountered! At first our waiter was funny and cheeky, but it got old fast and we waited forever for drinks, and salt and pepper. It seemed bigger parties got the attention and they forgot about us double tables.

Also you can’t leave a tip smaller than 15%!

Wouldn’t recommend this place at all!

I took my sister for her birthday! It was just the best experience! It was a little pricy but totally worth it! The belly dancing was amazing! The belly dancers put on a thirty minute show with five different songs to showcase all the different types of belly dancing, and then they invite costumers up to dance with them. The food was great, I recommend multiple appetizers to share. The servers were very nice too, totally catering to everything you wanted/needed. Plus, the cocktails were amazing and so original!

Preset 3 course menu for certain number of parties (don't know how much people, we had 5). I don't think the meal was worth $60 plus whatever drink purchases we had. The slow cooked short ribs were delicious, but I don't care for couscous which came with it. Belly dancers were amazing, I don't understand how they can move like that! Overall I guess I'm ok with it since I've always wanted to check it out. I wouldn't go again, and not sure if I'd care to recommend it to others either.

Goat cheese appetizer very good. Lamb dish ok. Tangine was not a true tangine and not delish. Never offered dessert. Had to ask for the bill as there was a vey long wait. Tried to up sell wine and when declines brought a bottle without confirming it, opened it just as approaching table and poured..... said nothing and walked away. Service over all was very poor.

Sultan's Tent has being around for quite a while but has always brought something very special to downtown but as far as I know you can't find anywhere else. Eating within a Moroccan tent, watching belly dancing while eating succulent food and drinking handcrafted cocktails or one of the many great beers they have in house makes for a superb evening. This is a great spot for a romantic night, a group of friends or business colleagues alike. My wife and I are about to have our first child, so we thought it would be fun to go once again to Sultan's Tent right before it gets too close to the date. We literally chose this as our last night out! And remember, don't be afraid to belly dance, you will be rewarded, and not just with your friends laughter!
