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.

Love this restaurant. This is our 3rd time back. We loved it so much the first time of winterlicious we went back again later and tried their main menu. Delicious food, great service and amazing entertainment. My favorite dish there is the Signature Maftoul morrocan cigar, ground beef, raisins, chipotle aioli!

You are paying for the character and atmosphere of the place. I wasn't so impressed with the quality or the selection of the food. If I do go back, it will be for the ambiance.

Wonderful experience and the good was great. The decor was spot on and the belly dance show was great to watch. Expect to spend a lot $. But still worth it at least once

It wasn't cheap and quality of food was not up to par. It was bland and tasteless. I read other people's reviews and seem like many feel the same and felt the same for many years so it's amazing how they completely don't care and didn't make an attempt to change. They are losing 1000s of clients every year as... More

Went on a date with my wife, she heard the dancing was good. The atmosphere is very romantic, comfortable chairs, the lamb is amazing. The belly dancing is very good and entertaining. We really felt like we were in the Middle East. Good downtown location, prices are reasonable and fast service. If your downtown and want to try something original... More

I arrived sometime after their lunch rush: there were only two other people in the entire restaurant. I waited at the hostess's station... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
