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.

Wow! Pretty bland for what we were expecting

This little place has a unique decor of a Moroccan theme. Various seating areas sectioned off by shimmery tent-like material, nice lighting and after 9:30pm, some belly dancers come out. Based on what the people at my table had, the Moroccan cigar app was tasty, the chickpea app was just that - a... read more

Quite the Americanized version of what Morocco really isn't: this place is a mash-up of misplaced decor, bad belly dancing, and expensive food lacking the true sense or aromas of a country too far away to experience over a weekend. There are better and more authentic places in the city, avoid this one if you can.

I have always enjoyed the food & atmosphere here. My last visit was bringing a date here, and she loved it too. The food was very good. Though I am a steak & potato guy, the food works well for me. The desserts are fantastic too. Best part is the belly dancing that occurs. They invite you up, if you... More

Moroccan Escapade After visiting the St. Lawrence Market (a few steps down Front St), we stopped by for drinks, nibbling and belly dancing. We had no reservations, but the hostess kindly accommodated us rather nicely. Lovely place, averageish dance show. Not impressed with the food nor the drinks (I had this fez cocktail which merely amounts for birthday party punch...),... More

We loved the atmosphere, the dancers and the service. My husband loved the lamb shank. However, the tajine I had was average and in my opinion was bland, it certainly lacked in spices. Overall, it was a great experience and we would return for the entertainment.

"We walked through the pointed arch entrance and were submerged into the atmosphere right away." "The main dining area had lower seating structures reminiscent of tents with thin fabric walls - orange, warm brows and some green colors persisting." "Shortly after we settled among the cushions, our waiter David came over and offered water as well as a quick rundown... More

At first i saw the place on its website and looked interesting. With my ties to Morocco i thought it would bring some memories back from the beautiful country. As soon as we went in, we were greeted by a waitress who placed us at a table for two, but oddly she placed us on a very awkward table. We... More

We went out before a show and having never been had no idea belly dancing was part of the evening. I can see why people would come out for the meal and the belly dancing for a unique night out but since we had to leave just as the entertainment began, I have little comments regarding the belly dancing.

The only reason I'm giving this restaurant a 3 star rating is because the atmosphere was fabulous and the music was very enjoyable. It created the right mood. Now onto the food. If I were to rate this restaurant just on food, it would get 2 stars at most. They were out of tuna, so the nicoise salad was being... More

Looking for a unique dining experience, a couple of buddies enjoyed a bachelor party dinner here. Food was great, highly recommend the "cigars". Anything cooked in a Tagine (think Dutch Oven) was very tasty. Belly dancers were a fun experience as they will try to get you on your feet, bring some cash to tip them. Lighting is kept low,...
