Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hi Rob, We're sorry to hear you were not pleased with our Ocean Kebab. It seems you forgot to mention the Octopus that is also included in the dish. It is a costly item hence the pricing of the Ocean Kebab is put accordingly. We take pride using in using the freshest ingredients and putting together a special dish that is to be remembered. Regardless, we will take note of your review and work within the team to see what improvements can be made with it. We thank you for choosing The Sultan for your evening meal.

Splendid evening with the Mrs, had probably one of the best steaks I had. Went for a ribeye which came with many sides and topped with a complimentary Turkish tea. Safe to say this place is a new favourite

A breakfast for kings! Had to try the Turkish breakfast for 2 and had menemen. Though it’s for 2, it’s more like for 4. A wide spread of different products and bites.

Came down for dinner after a referral from St. David’s hotel. Couldn’t have been happier. Every bite packed with flavour. A Turkish tea given complimentary after a meal and a great chat with Aslan made it all the more better. Thanks for the hospitality, will be back.

We were completely blown away with our experience at The Sultan. Definitely the best place to eat in Cardiff Bay. The menu was fantastic, each course exceeded our expectations and the waiting staff were the most professional we have ever encountered (outside of London). Oh, and the ANADA KOFTE is a must!! Would definitely recommend!

I can’t recommend The Sultan highly enough. Not only was the food exceptional but the service and hospitality was first class. I visited as part of a large group which is often very difficult to accommodate but from the point at which we first booked the staff were responsive, flexible and easy to deal with. They did not disappoint on the night either. The food was beautifully prepared, the group were all served at the same time and with great care. Not only the best meal I have had in a very long time but with the best service too and in a beautiful location. Thank you to everyone at The Sultan for making it such an enjoyable night.

What a stunning place! The staff were so attentive without being pushy, plenty of time between the courses too - which gave a very relaxed atmosphere. The food and presentation were exceptional and the overall ambience of the place has guaranteed our return, soon. Thoroughly recommended!

Excellent experience at The Sultan on Wednesday evening. The table was booked for 4pm as it was a pre-theatre meal. Excellent service throughout, and we were not rushed at any point. The standard of the food was excellent, I can recommend the Chicken Chestnut and the bulgar rice. Wide range of drinks, including the wines. Beautiful surroundings, and the ambience was also excellent. We will certainly be back. Thank you.

An explosion of flavours in all our meals, prepared and adapted to suit our dietary requirements. Our sincere thanks to Aslam one of the waiters who provided recommendations and care throughout our meal . No hesitation in recommending to others. We look forward to returning.

I booked this restaurant based on all the positive reviews on this site and had an exceptional (pre-theatre) lunchtime meal of three courses, wine and Turkish tea in an impressive building with very friendly staff. Next time we are in Cardiff we will eat here again.
