From the décor to the atmosphere to the food this restaurant is amazing but what really puts it over the top is Mumen. His warmth, hospitality and attention to detail are second to none. He made my wife's and my dining here very special. Thank...you. Jack and KatMore

Had dinner here with my spouse a few weeks ago. The food is yummy and reasonably priced. The gentleman that served us was engaging and efficient. The lovely dancer that performed was talented and did her best to include anyone who wanted to dance! The...only slight criticism I have is that when looking at website, I had the impression that there would be more of a 'show' - ie more than one dancer performing. No big deal though, we had a lovely time and will return.More

For years, I've wanted to try this restaurant. When my daughter asked where I'd like to go to celebrate my 60th birthday, I suggested it as an option & she made it happen. The entire experience from the ambience, to the attention to detail, the...service, the menu recommendations that didn't disappoint, the entertainment was fabulous & fun ...

Went with extended family to celebrate a 50th birthday here and it did not disappoint. Our waiter was excellent, very attentive and engaging. The manager came around to the table a few times during the evening and he was very welcoming. The atmosphere was fun...and the bell dancers were very entertaining. The food was excellent. I would highly recommend the maftoul for appetizer - it was creamy and yet the pastry was crispy at the same time. One of the best apps I've ever had. All of the entrees were generous sizes and were well prepared. We were looking for something different to try for a dinner out and we were very happy with our choice!More

I hate to start off a review with this, but, having been to Morocco (sounds like bragging), I was excited to visit this restaurant and revisit the cuisine, and enjoy some professional belly dancers. The dancers were fine. The food however was mostly tasteless to...average. The ambiance is nice, but I think it is hiding the fact that this is mostly a touristy kind of place with bells and whistles meant to detract you from the food quality. Service was good.More

We just had the best dinner at Sultans Tent! They have truly re-defined the saying “Dinner and a Show”. We began the night with the most amazing waitress we have ever had Abigail! She gave us fantastic dinner recommendations, she was beyond friendly and attentive...our glasses were never empty. She took service and hospitality to the next level! Continuing on with the fantastic service we had Domenic help us out as well with a beautiful tea service! He was super friendly and went above and beyond to ensure we were okay! Manager Mamun was fantastic from the moment we walked in the door! Super welcoming and friendly! The Sultan’s tent truly has a fantastic team and that is reflected in the experience you receive! The manager Medhat came around and checked on every table as well throughout the experience to ensure we were okay. You really feel warm and welcoming. The food was amazing! Some must-tries are The Frites! So delicious! The beef short ribs! The pita with hummus and basically the entire menu! The drinks were amazing! We had the Hawaiian martini 10/10! If you are ever on Front Street this is your next stop for amazing food and an amazing show! There was a fantastic belly dancer who made our evening fantastic! You can go up and dance with her on stage! It was so much fun. Sultan's tent is more than a dinner it is an experience! Thank you to the wonderful staff who made us have the most memorable night of the summer! Can’t wait to see you all soon!More

I booked my birthday for a party of 8 at The Sultan's Tent, feeling reasonably confident, even excited, after reading the reviews and seeing the pictures posted. After being greeted warmly by the hostess, Angela, and led to our table, things started gong south fast....If is wasn't for the excellent skillset and warmth of the manager, Mamun, I would have left. I had studied the menu at length for the $65/person prix fixe menu, which up to that point I was clearly led to believe included an extensive range of Moroccan dishes, such as beet fusion salad, the fabled Chicken Bastilla, the pomegranate-glazed rack of lamb, etc., etc., etc,. (from the menu posted on their website) until I was presented with a Summerlicious menu that essentially had 5 uninspired entree options: braised lam shank, primavera or chicken tagines, samak (salmon) chermoula and a beef stew. My guests (who were promised a wide range of apps and entrees) and I stared at the stark menu in disbelief, especially given that after more than $700.00 for 7 adults and 1 child who had chicken fingers and fries, we essentially had the cheapest possible options that were pulled from their regular menu and repackaged as a Summerlicious menu. When I confronted the manager for being so misled, he apologized and really tried to make the best of a bad situation. Oh, and did I mention an automatic 18% tip for parties of 8 or above! In case I missed something, when I got home, I went again on their website and there was NOT ONE reference to the REAL menu being served for Summerlicious, so you would 100% be left with the impression that you will dine from the regular menu (even their a la carte menu didn't have the food options advertised). I checked the menu attached to my opentable electronic confirmation for the prix fixe menu, and it was the same as their regular menu (NOT the Summerlicious menu). I mean I could have taken everyone to The Keg, were I would happily justified that bill, but for a bowl of couscous mixed with some pieces of beef, this is a complete scam!!!!! Be warned: the Summerlicious Prix Fixe Menu" is extremely limited and does not reflect what is posted on their website! Other than the Manager, Mamun, the entertaining and engaging belly dancers made up for my disappointing birthday experience, albeit a short performance and only one show for the evening. Oh, also there is no traditional drummer fyi. The website presents as a unique place you'd bring family and friends for a special occasion, but it is very disappointing and left me with the feeling I was misled.More

Great food, amazing service. Ambiance and show was very impressive. A little bit challenging to find it as scaffolding around entrance meant we couldn’t see the sign.

My visiting friend Steeve from Vancouver invited me for dinner to this place that I knew of but never visited. He made reservations for 7:30pm for his host and also visiting mother from Quebec. We were welcome in this large establishment with a beautiful decor...and sat at a very large table. Many diners all around us. Tamara was our server. She suggested a fancy non alcoholic for Gisèle and Steeve ordered the wine Château Puyfromage. You shared crab cakes with Gisèle, very tasty. For my main course I ordered the lamb shank, a big portion that I truly enjoyed. My friends also enjoyed their mains. Steeve ordered the baklava and made it disappear. There was a belly dancer performance which was very entertaining and she got Gisèle to do a bit of dancing too. Very enjoyable dinner with great service!More

We chose to come here on a cold evening, looking forward to harira soup. We were disappointed by the thin broth and lack of flavour. The lamb shank was nice, but the vegetables that came with it in the freekah were practically raw, instead of...infused with savoury flavours of Morocco. The baklava was tough, not delicate. And the staff were hovering around us too much, interrupting our conversations and snatching dishes from us before we'd finished our last bites. Please wait until everyone at the table has finished that course before clearing while others are still eating. And if you see that the guests are in mid-conversation, don't hover and interrupt. Just go about your work until you see the guests are amenable to it. It seemed like we had every staff member waiting on us, and it was just too much forced attention that disrupted our visiting.More

This place is a complete joke! Moroccan food prepared Indian style. Belly dancing “show” that was actually a single 10-minutes performance. Poor quality main courses, tiny tasteless appetisers (except for the Maftuul). Weird seating, dim lighting. Super overpriced and a huge disappointment. Wouldn’t recommend nor...return to this place.More

The atmosphere and theming of the restaurant is great - it really does transport you off to Morocco. We sat in the “café” area of the restaurant where you order from the à la carte menu. The food was delicious, especially the Maftoul, Eggplant Zaalouk,...Merguez Tajine and Meatball Tajine. The service was professional, friendly and attentive. I highly recommend The Sultan’s Tent & Café Maroc.More
