Relaxing and Fun

For something to do in the evening that is relaxing, this hookah lounge is great. They don't sell alcoholic beverages, but you can bring your own for a fee. They do have other drinks such as water and tea. They also sell food! Several people near us were dinning and it did look tasty. We opted for... read more

We went to Newport for our 26th anniversary and booked a non-smoking room which means - no hookah, so we looked around and found Genie's. What a great place with excellent service, great shisha and wonderful teas. They also offer middle eastern cuisine. Get the premium hookah (worth it) We rarely give anyone five stars, but this little gem deserves... More

Met up here with friends for dinner, hookah pipes, drinks, and the Belly Dancing show. Let's just say the show was good, but the food was Bland and Overpriced. Service was a struggle in terms of getting your food and even getting the bill straight!!! Be careful the following things add up (pretty high) here. 1. Ordering food & hookah... More

Dinner on the outside patio was a great place to enjoy dinner while people watching. Service was good and prices very reasonable. The falafel platter came with two packed to overflowing pita sandwiches, which my husband declared very good. And my rice/lentil platter topped with grilled chicken was very good as well. We didn't eat inside, but did walk through.... More

The air is clean. The atmosphere is charming. The tapas are delicious. The graffiti on their outside wall has not been cleaned in years. This is disturbing when all other businesses in this charming area of Newport including the shopping center accross the street quickly remove or paint over any graffiti.

Fantastic! The menu was great, the staff was so friendly and nice, the service was some of the best I've ever had, and the atmosphere was relaxing. I spent about 3 hours there with my boyfriend. Everything was perfect. I'd go there weekly if I lived nearby!
