Birthday dinner and entertainment? Alternatives to Sultan's Tent
I'm taking my girlfriend out for her birthday (mid-20s) and I'm looking for a restaurant in the GTA that will offer a memorable unique experience ("entertainment" doesn't necessarily mean a show). Sultan's Tent was a candidate until I read all the bad reviews on here. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Mambo Lounge on Danforth is a favourite of mine. On Friday and Saturday nights, you can hear live Cuban music after 8.30 p.m. There is a $5 cover charge. Food is delicious.
If you can avoid Sultan's Tent...please do. I went there twice, the second time, they completely forgot the second course! Although the waitress apologized, and bagged the course, it wasn't taken off the bill. The bill came to $180...I think rather high for a place like this. It's a place that you go to once, and that's it.
I would say go to Sopra Upper Lounge for jazz and food. Or Scaramouche for a lovely dinner, and then Panorama afterwards for drinks and music.
