The new owners took over in December and their food and service was excellent. Flavours and textures were just like Morocco. The chef informed us that he gets his spices from Morocco, hence the authenticity of flavours.

We will definitely be back!

We used our Groupon for four on a Saturday night. We actually had five people and our amicable host accommodated us by adding an extra portion at a nominal fee. The Royal Feast provided more delicious food than we could eat! Plan to spend the evening, as with five courses, eating and then relaxing in between courses takes time! We had a wonderful evening and would highly recommend the Moroccan Tent! Easy on-line reservations at Open Table too!

What a hidden gem!
From the outside you would think "just another weird little diner"
You would be 100% wrong.
You enter into a new world once you step in.
From the lighting to the tables to the walls you are immersed in the Moroccan culture.
Alex is the host, server, and entertainment for your entire stay.
Plan to be there for at least Two (2) hours up to four (4) hours.
Believe it.
If you are expecting fast service go to McDonald's.
This is an experience that requires you to be patient and to have an open, fun mind.
Highly recommend the Royal Feast!
Thanks Alex and team for a wonderful evening of food and fun!

This restaurant was a 40 minute drive from my place. It was definitely worth the drive.
Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. Great ambience. I’d definitely recommend this restaurant for someone wanting to experience Moroccan cuisine.

Felt very little attention was made to requests, in fact requests were not read or heard on a voice message. ended up dessert that did not included strawberries. The waiter charged us for tips without letting us know and we ended up double tipping him which we realized afterwards. I am disappointed of customer service but the cuisine was great.

We had dinner during the week so it was quiet and cozy. We got the Feast and the soup, appetizer, and entre were delicious! Hot and good ingredients. Lovely decor and a great server.

Moroccan Tent has great food & service. Alex was very attentive, polite and gracious. The food was very tasty and more than one could possibly eat at one sitting. My wife could not finish her plate. I managed to finish but was very full. My wife and I had the 5 course dinner for two. The Lamb Tajine is excellent and the meat is very tender (use caution, it is served in a clay plate and is VERY hot to the touch!) My wife had the Chicken Kabob With Saffron which she enjoyed very much. This is not a place you go to if you want a quick bite or fast food. Very relaxed, quiet atmosphere with a nice ambiance. You are initially greeted by towels sprinkled with rose water which is a nice touch compared to other restaurants. All in all, a great experience. Will definitely be going back.

Not the best Moroccan food I've had. The entree had frozen vegetables and 4 tiny pieces of lamb and paid $24 for what was probably worth $2. Pretty disappointing. Ambience was nice though.

We didn't get to experience this place as a very rude Maitre D refused us entry because we had booked with Open Table despite us having a confirmation email. He did not offer us another time or even an apology and acted as if it was our fault. He just said they no longer dealt with Open Table.

We found the Moroccan Tent on google for close by restaurants. A group of ya girls were in town for a few days and wanted something that we didn’t have in our own city. Wow we were impressed. Atmosphere was the best! Felt like we were in a foreign land! Service was awesome, our host, he was funny and calm like the feeling of our night. So relaxing, cozy and then we all tried a different dish, and each one was fantastic! Something for picky eaters but enough those stepping outta the comfort zone! Even had to take a doggy bag home!
I will go back the next time I’m in Calgary!

Beautiful decor, close to home, owner was our server, he was super attentive and friendly. He gave us advice on what to order. From the jasmine scented napkins, to the Moroccan diningware, plush cushions, tented fabric in rich colours, the ambience was amazing! The whole experience was so pleasant, I will be back!

The service was a bit slow (about 1.5-2 hours for dinner), but this was likely because we had a 5-course meal and it was being paced out slowly. The food was incredible! My favorite is the tajine with prunes.

The food was fantastic! A delicate balance of savory and sweet. We didn't have much experience with Moroccan cuisine so we left it to our server, Alex, to choose and he hit the mark spot on. Alex was warm welcoming and had a wonderful sense of humor. We will definitely be back.
