We never thought we could find a place like that in the heart of Manhattan. We felt like in "bled" there! Really the same atmosphere as a shisha bar in Dubai, Marrakech or anywhere in Orient. Great choice of hookah flavours, very good arabian tea,...More

Very nice place. The sheesha was very good. The bartender comped me a beer because he thought it took to long. The foul (a bean dish) was phenomenal. In the first room of the place they were playing the football game which was nice.

This is my place for hookah in Manhattan. Amazing atmosphere and deco. Mostly Egyptian inspirations. The hookah is great with many flavors. Staff is very nice and friendly.

Great experience. My friend and I stopped by after dinner on Halloween night for some hookah. We got King Tut hookah - delicious. Their regular mojitos were nice and strong! We'll be back when we visit New York again :)

We went here for a drink one night. It's actually quite a nice chilled place. Helps if you are a smoker which I'm not but never the less nice place.

Nothing special, just a dark hookah bar in midtown. There are better ones in lower east side It is over priced for what it is. Service is really slow.

The vibe is nice but the waitress sucked. She was very friendly. Their is also a service charge put into the regular charge. I did not leave a tip. First time in NYC and I have been to two better bars. Hookah was also expensive.

Went to Karizma on a recent NYC visit because we all love MiddleEastern food & the idea of a hookah bar seemed fun...and it was! The restaurant itself seemed a bit shady, and we almost turned around & walked out, but glad we didn't! We...More

Hookah i've been smoking for the last 18 years and I like to go about new cities and try out the local hookah joints late in the evening. This one was decorated pretty nice. Comfortable seating and low lights. They were decked out in halloween...More
