The food is always amazing and the hookah is high quality! I love the music they play too, such a cute spots to go to with friends or a date night. The service could be a little quicker but all in all it’s a great spot! Definitely my new spot with my girlfriends!

If you like hookah lounges and middle eastern food, this is a nice place. Service is very friendly, and there are many flavors offered for hookah. Quiet earlier in the evening.

Excellent food, priced appropriately, large sizes. Drink prices a little high but that's New York. Excellent hookah too and they come by to replace the coals without asking. Amazing ambience, amazing food. Will definitely be back!

My preferred place for hookah in manhattan. I just wish it wasn’t so difficult to get reservations here or I wish they welcomes walk-ins better.

On a Friday and Saturday night a reservation is recommended for sure. Food is phenomenal and so is the ambiance. Drinks are a little pricey (like everywhere) but the food is very reasonably priced. The staff could be just a bit friendlier but definitely not a reason to not go. All in all, 5 stars!

Food was great but the service is horrible , they make you wait 10 mins to take your order. The girls thinks she owns the place by giving attitude like we there doing her a favor.

The badest hookah in my life. I asked for change it but the answer was everything is fine. I smoked in so much cities but this was the badest!!! 30 Dollar for 10 min smokes!
The personal says in the enterance that you have the table only for one hour. What kind of service is that?
Only positives thing was the style of the bar. That’s all.

As much as I wanted to give this place a nice rating, it came out to be a not so pleasant experience.
I have never been to a place where a server would frown multiple times upon some extra cutlery or utensils request.
I invited 5 other friends for a little get together and I would never do it again. The food was good but it's such a shame that the unprofessional and unethical attitude of the sever made us change our minds.
Sad, because the people accompanying me including myself all work for Fortune 50 companies and always give referrals for good places to other people in the city. And we might not do the same for this place.

In addition, the person in-charge had the guts to walk up to us and tell us to hide a pair of sneakers we carried along because it looked bad- also in a very impolite manner. I mean, if you have the most rude server and hostess attending the guests, that looks the worst so instead of worrying about sneakers which half the NYC carries with them because of our walking commutes, they could have been a little more professional and polite about it.

Announced myself and waited 30 minutes inside, so the place could get 'officially' open. After that someone come to say that they do not accept babies and should leave. Really!?!

Great mellow hookah spot low key with a beautiful modern ambiance with middle eastern touches. The food is great and I had tea which was perfect for a rainy day. I was visiting from dc and am a hookah snob, this place had very clean and smooth hookah.

Staff is rude. Sad because the ambiance is cool and hookah's there are great, but everytime I go they end up kicking you out or giving you a time limit even when the place still has empty tables. They do not appreciate recurring business.

We made a reservation here. We arrived to find people vaping. When we asked about this, we were told the establishment is a hookah bar! This was not stated on Open Table, which billed this as a Mediterranean restaurant. We walked out and ate at a Peruvian restaurant down the street.
Very poor representation of this place on Open Table.
We did not experience the food or service, but the only way to relay this information was to give a full rating.😕

The ambiance of this restaurant was the best part. The food was tasty and the drinks were good. The hookah was smooth and the refilled the coal pretty often. I would definitely go back.
