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... read 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

The atmosphere is hip and laid back. On top of it the food was delicious and the hookah was divine. The belly dancer was beautiful also.
