This place was recommended by Arias from ARUBA Sunrise Tours and it was amazing! We did the Family Platter for 2 which is only $30 and it comes with 3 kebabs - chicken, lamb and beef + shwarma, Arab bread, tabouleh, hummus, falafel, dolmas and other delicious treats. It was seasoned so well and the bread was definitely homemade. It... More

My husband and I opted in for the taster's plate which had several different meats and sides, it was flavorful and tasting hitting all my palates. Lamb,steak,chicken were all nicely prepared. I would definitely go back here when in Aruba.

We visit Sultan approx once a month for a quick, tasty and affordable dinner. I usually have the lamb shawarma platter. It is lamb, but processed and 'glued' together in 'chips'. Very passable. The humus and tabuleh are top! I usually don't eat the arab rice with angelhair, because I'm already stuffed on the fresh pita breads 😉

The Sultan Kafta and tabouli were delicious. The servings were very generous and the price is reasonable.

A friend of mine has been inviting me for the longest time to Sultan to try out the food, but I kept turning her down because the place always looked kind of shady on the exterior.

Based on the experience of a collega we all ordered take away for lunch. 5 different lunches. At work the taste and smell of garlic was every where, for the price of about 16 florin each (9 dollar). For sure a place to order again!

Amazing middle eastern delicacies at a great value The only down side is the very loud Arab singing / videos In fact some of the videos wouldn't be appropriate for the younger set Go for the food and the value
