Whenever you are at the Abu Dhabi cornesh and looking for a pit stop for shesha and a snack layali Zaman would be a place. The place is open from morning till 2:00 AM serving food and shesha. However, they are a bit relaxed in bringing orders. But still you can enjoy the breeze while watching a football match in... More

Uhmm... why does this place hire waiters? Just to ignore and disrespect it's customers lool. This place is utter garbage. Service, food, shisha, atmosphere, everything. Even the managers while complaining are rude too! Wouldn't be too shocked if it went out of business. And hopefully soon

The place has a very nice outdoor seating which is very pleasant for sitting in the good weather (usually winter time in Abu Dhabi). Ideal for Shisha lovers but the food is not grea, and the service is slow as well.

The service could be better, but it seems they prefer the Arabs more over the other nationalities, which doesnt bother me. Parking is plenty, however best to park in the public parking nearby rather than find one right next to... More

Hi, The place smelled creepy and the staff is very untrained, they have no respect for clients. They insert their choices on the customer plus we bought a deal no where mentioning that shisha is mandatory and went with our 6 months old baby and the manager insisted us to have shisha otherwise we can't sit there. We had an... More
