Needs remodeling
By Kevin Silverstone of Victoria and Area (17 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 1, 2012 - 12:29pm [Dine in]

The first thing you notice when you walk in is the place is a mess and stinks a bit. Badly needs a makeover.
The staff are very friendly that is always nice these days.
The food was ok. The dolmades were from a can and came with nothing on a dish. A bit of lemon would have been nice. Ordered the lamb. Rice was bland. Salad was plain iceburg with vinigar. The leg of lamb was well done and well seasoned. The drink selection was very poor. settled on a can of pop.
Price was very high for the food quality and service.
Probebly wont return.

Needs an interior renovation
By Bernard of Victoria (1 Review)

The restaurant is run by an Iraqi family but draw their recipes from around the Middle East. The food we had was good but unrefined. The baba ghannoug was among the best I ever had. The pita was good. My other half had the falafel plate and said they were good. I had the kebab and it was good.

The decor is a hold over from Ribs and Bones which was at this site, and I think that was a holdover from the decor from several restaurants before. They need to strip out the interior and redo it.

The service was great and very friendly. I also got to talk some Iraqi politics with Abdul, talking any politics is always a bonus for me.

We will go back and likely with all of the kids.

Great Experience at one of Victoria's best restaurants

I have been going to Al-Sultan restaurant for the past two weeks.
The food is really good, I highly recommend people to go and try it.
The staff are really lovely, patient and well educated about the type of food they serve,not like most of the Greek places in town. Lovely Arabic and Middle eastern music in the background makes the dinning experience even more interesting.
This place makes the best lamb in town, so for those of you that like lamb this is the place to go.
The prices at Al-Sultan are really reasonable, me and my friend had dinner with desert and with drinks last night, and our bell was only 35 bucks!!!

I highly encourage people to go and try it.

The service staff is very genuine and friendly. The food was just ok. The hummus was made with very bitter tahini and i think my homemade is better, which is sad for a middle eastern place. the pitas are store bought, the greek salad came with canned olives!!!! The felafel was nice but not good enough to save the meal.

Victoria needed a place like this
By Victoria-resident of Victoria (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, October 28, 2009 - 10:38pm [Dine in]

Great food and service. We tried few plates and all were good, even the Knafeh which I know is difficult to make. Although I hope next time will be with cheese
Both types of Shawerma (arabic Donair) were outstanding and the presentation was fairly authentic. Having Arabic music play in the back ground was certainly a welcome addition.
The place is very tidy and the operators are nice and welcoming. We will be going back there.
Thank you

Great food, great prices, just need more customers

Food - absolutely delicious. Everything is very fresh and tasty.
I savoured every bite, food can't be any better!

Service - two very kind and friendly elderly gentlemen served us, they also prepared the food for us. Good service, and eager to explain the dishes/menu, and made decisive and good recommendations!

Value - excellent value, no doubt about it. A reasonably sized entry costs about 9.99. Great prices for a sit down restaurant with fresh and tasty food. My dinner for two came to a grand total of $30 + tip.

Ambiance - It's very clean inside, and it's a nice and tidy establishment.

Great food, great price, friendly service. I highly recommend this place!!
