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

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.

I loved the food and the athmosphere in this restaurant. Couscous, hookah, dancers and cafe latte (surprisingly) were excellent!

I'm always on the hunt for a good hookah bar, and this place fits the bill. It's tucked back on the street with a large patio. Inside, there are many slightly cramped tables and booths, the walls are dark, and the air is clogged with the sweet scent of burning shisha. The music is always loud, especially during the belly-dancing... More
