Group of 6 ladies next week. We were going to try Sultan's tent but I've been reading horrible reviews. Anyone been lately? Other suggestions?

    Haven't been to Sultan's Tent myself so can't comment on it. If you can be more specific about what you're looking for (neighbourhood? budget? cuisine? atmosphere?) more people might be able to help.

    Based on the location, you're close to:
    - Paganelli's
    - Swish by Han
    - Origin

      Yes, I've been to the Sultan Tent, a couple of years ago now. We went for a girls night out. We had fun. But it was pricey.

      The food is so so. It's like fast food.

      They had a time limit of 2 sittings for the evening I think.

      I'm don't think its all that worth it.

      What made you chose the Tent? Location? Food? Ambience?

        The food is terrible and way too expensive for the quality. Avoid. I also found the belly dancing kind of amateurish. There are far better places to go and pay in the same price range as Sultan's Tent. Are you looking for Moroccan or North African food or was it just the entertainment that directed your attention to the Sultan's Tent?

        I went about a year ago with a family group, celebrating a birthday. The tastiest thing of the whole night (and I sampled what everyone ordered because I'm obnoxious like that) was the tea. From what I remember, for the most part, the food ranges in just passable to pretty awful: greasy lamb, poorly made rice. My seven-year-old loved it, though, because it was the epitome of fanciness in her eyes. If you don't mind spending a lot $ for not-so-good food, then go for it, I say. That way you can experience it for yourself, and you and your group might have a lot of fun. (I, personally, get somewhat bitter when I spend my $ on subpar food, but that's because I don't go out for dinner often.)
