I went there with some colleagues and we all enjoyed it. The chickpea salad was delicious and the sweet keskessa (sp?) dessert was also good and very unique. The braised lamb was also good. I know little about Moroccan food so can't say if it's authentic or not. I don't know what to make of the distribution of reviews here.... More

We walked past this place and checked out the reviews. For some reason wasn't ready to commit especially because of the most recent reviews. So, walked on, then decided to just go with the flow and check it out. The 2014 award winning ambiance features tent-like privacy screens that appeared to be something straight out of Morocco! Lovely!!!! We started... More

I recently ate lunch at the Sultan's Tent. The restaurant looks nice but at 1:00 pm on a weekday in a busy neighborhood it was empty, only one other table being used. Entire back half of the restaurant was empty. Service was adequate. The food was satisfactory but some what bland. I had the meat skewer, with chicken, lamb and... More

This was an awesome summerlicious pick for lunch. I'd never been before and the ambience itself is fantastic! The food was delicious and I was actually full after eating a summerlicious meal. I had the chick pea salad as an app, for the main I had the lamb, chicken and shrimp skewers and for dessert I had the crème brule.... More

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!

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.
