I am sorry that you feel its too expensive. Perhaps with some explanations around why we have the pricing structure we do can put some perspective on this for you.

By far the best shisha in town! Everything here first class from the shisha flavours to the service. Staff are very friendly and make you feel welcomed. Been coming here since they have opened and each time have enjoyed the many different flavours they offer. Shisha-lovers; this place is a must! SJ
