I love this place! I was in town for business and I went here with two of my coworkers. We don't have decent Middle Eastern food in my hometown, or hookah, and this sounded really appealing. The food was authentic, and I know good Middle Eastern Food, as I have spent a lot of time there. Try the stuffed grape... More

Went here with a large group. Everything went wrong: Waiter was moody to start off with. Cursing behind our backs and at our table using the f word. He even yelled at the owner. The owner was called to our table a few times because: 1. Order of hookah was wrong and waiter said we needed to pay to get... More

I enjoyed this place very much when I visited it with friends a couple of months ago. Very nice theme to the restaurant and the food is excellent.

Both items I tried were sub-par and there was a foul odor coming from the back hall area, as if the bathrooms needed cleaning. The waiter was friendly and helpful but I know what these two dishes should taste like. They were no more than a shadow.

Very cute hookah lounge in Avondale. It has a nice little patio, the inside can be a little smokey. The food is good, nice selection of craft beers and wine. Everyone is happy that works there which is a nice vibe. There are a variety of hookah flavors that the staff assists you with and seems to be a sharing... More

The best Hookah in Jacksonville, and the arabic music makes a great atmosphere. I wish if I could of set outdoor but it was raining. It gets a bet smoky indoors tough

Casbah is a fantastic, laid-back restaurant. They have great all-day "happy hour" specials on beer & wine (they don't serve liquor) during the week. I received great customer service on both of my visits. I highly recommend the vegetarian grape leaves. They are the best I have ever had. Perfectly seasoned and made with tender grape leaves that are very... More

I have walked by this place many times and finally went in and ate. It was a very enjoyable experience. Really good service and food. There was even a surprise belly dancing show.

The place got really cold and we asked for the a/c to be turned down, but they didn't do it for us. Other than that their main attraction is the hookah. The place had average décor and the service was alright. I wouldn't say it was anything spectacular though. Prices where quite decent and the food was just average.
