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.

Good food, pleasant atmosphere.

I stumbled across the Sultan's Tent last week when I was vacationing in Toronto. It's located on Front Street, a block or two down from St. Lawrence Market. The date of my visit was Friday June 19.

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

Fun looking space and the experience was great but I rate it average because the food is a bit cliche and old school. In the case of the quiche the flavor combinations and ingredients were just bizarre. I suppose this is an attempt to merge a regional expectation with the overall restaurant concept but for me it fell short...although the... More

Offers belly dancer entertainment at certain hours. Had difficulties placing a reservation and when we showed up they place was completely empty. They were in the middle of revamping their menu so they did not have a number of items. Good atmosphere but it's checked off the list and nothing really won us over to come back.

We like dinner and entertainment and so we thought this was a great place. It definitely is not what you expect when you see it from the street, you walk into the restaurant and your blown away by how big it is and it is very tastefully decorated. The atmosphere is very fun and relaxed and the belly dancer was... 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

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 bunch of chickpeas with no additional flavour;... 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
