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.

Sorry to say . . . .

OK, we went here in spite of other reviews. We should have listened. Yes, the dancing was entertaining, but beyond that . . . average at best. A disappointment, no a rather expensive disappointment.

We celebrated a girlfriends birthday and were lucky enough to be sat in the tent section. Dinner was very flavourful. Highly recommend the lamb or chicken and the morrocan cigars are a must try.

Good food, very well prepared and tasty. The belly dancers were a plus, it was lots of fun to watch them and other patrons get up and dance with them. The restaurant is decorated like a tent, very nice! Thoroughly enjoyed it.

We decided to check out this place because of its different environment and food. The food was pretty good and the atmosphere was great. The belly dancers were a nice added touch.

I was very disappointed with the food. I did not opt for the fixed price menu, you do get that option. I had some kind of seafood dish. I asked the server about the sauce it came with and they did not know. The service was not great. The dancing however, was really nice. I liked the atmosphere. Overall, I... More

I went there for the first time on a Wednesday night. We ordered appetizers, Maftoul (that everyone seem to talk about) and Chicken Bastilla. Bother were bland and tasteless. For dinner, two types of Tagines which were OK but still missing taste. So disappointed. Belly Dancer was fun but it was awkward and she looked pregnant. I would not recommend... More

I recommend to go for the 4-course meal. Although the menu is a bit confusing- the prix fixe and a la carte menus are the same. This place is rather nice, albeit, a bit hidden down Front St. just west of the St. Lawrence Market.The décor makes it feel as though you're in an exotic environment, but surrounded by touristy...

We've been to The Sultan's Tent a few times before, including around the same time last year for a birthday. We were pretty disappointed this time around as the food wasn't that great and the service was very hostile (no active effort to help accommodate us, rushed, etc.) The pricing also does not get you much. I ordered off the... 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.
