we have driven by the sultan for many years and it was only this past month that we finally dropped in for a meal we love middle eastern food and are familiar with the many different dishes that can be ordered.....we enjoyed ourselves so much...after the first visit that we went back a couple more times after that! we had the falafel platter with a side of baba janoush.....it was plenty enough for both of us to be stuffed......delicious! next time we did the chicken shisk kabob platter and that was super....we were able to split one order and even have some leftover for lunch the next day we went back again for more falafell, and it was super there is a garlic mayo and a hot pepper relish that are served with the meal that are amazing...... you wont be disappointed if you decide to eat here oh.....you would need a car, as this place is in cumuna, which is straight back from the airport....easy to find and get to....and easy parking....but no close to downtown any taxi would know how to get there.....More

Being hookah enthusiasts from the US, it was wonderful to find a relaxing and yet also stimulating atmosphere in Aruba for hookah! Not to mention the food and drink -- the Shish Taouk was AMAZING, and come on, of course the mango daiquiri and Sultan's...Maitai were quite scrumptious. Whether you're going to Sultan for drinks, hookah or food, you're sure to win regardless!More

The new Sultan in Noord was suggested by locals and we had a wonderful experience there. The dishes were authentic and plentiful and the service attentive and helpful in making dining decisions. The kabobs and babaganoush were standouts and the Mediterranean salad was large enough...for several to sample.More

Sultan opened a second location earlier this year in the space previously occupied by Barney's, and it is a wonderful addition to the food scene on the north end of the island. I have been there three time. The first time we had a large...combo platter for 4 that would have fed two more. The variety of dishes was amazing. The second time I had shawarma, a meat filled flat bread with wonderful garlicky sauce that seems to be a specialty of the place. On our third visit we all had various kebab and rice dishes that were outstanding. Dont miss the babaganoush, it's the best! The service is excellent and the prices are reasonable. There are a lot of vegetarian options. This is a definite must when you are in the mood for something a bit more exotic than the usual fare.More

We went with friends for dinner at the new Sultan's location in Noord. It's in the building that used to be Barney's. They have done a great job of renovating the place with lovely decor and intimate lighting. The food and service are excellent and...the prices are very reasonable. Our waiter, Alfred, was very attentive and helpful. The Shoarma's are our favorite, but the dinner platters are also delicious. Generous portions. We will go back. Highly recommended.More

This location is very close to all Palm Beach hotels. We very much enjoyed our meals - chicken shawarma and kofta kebab plates. Each came with multiple delicious sides including hummus, babaganoush, tabouleh, rice pilaf and soft warm pita bread. Very generous portions meant there...was plenty for bringing home. Two meals and four glasses of wine for under $75! We will return and bring family and friends.More

We ate at the previous location of Sultan several years ago and this was our first visit to the newer location. We ordered the chicken shawarma platter with extra bread to go and it was the perfect amount to share. All of the sides &...sauces were very fresh tasting. We will definitely return on our next trip.More

We love middle eastern food and the Sultan doesn’t disappoint. We had the mixed platter which was great. The lamb was especially tasty. We had Alfred as our server (we were the Toronto couple) He did everything to accommodate us including moving us outside. We...enjoyed having a choice of wines — often lacking elsewhere. We will eat there again before we leave the islandMore
