“Best Nargile (Waterpipe - Sisha) experience ever”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

You may smoke your Nargile (Waterpipe - Sisha) in a historical place in the heart of Old City. Place is just between Cemberlitas and Beyazit squares

“the Joy of this Old School Nargile Cafe”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Inside this old Mosque Complex, there are two Nargile cafes (go to the older -and bigger- one on the right) and souvenir shops. The Mosque is still functioning but there is nothing touristic to see.

The Nargile cafe though (called "Erenler") serves the best Nargile you can smoke in Istanbul. Turkish cafe is also really good and teas are always fresh. (Actually here you don't order tea, every ones in a while a waiter walks through the tables with a tray of newly made teas and you ask one, apple tea is my favorite)

Still the best part according to me is the mood. You sit in the courtyard of a mosque, there is always a crowd of locals, shop owners in Grand Bazaars, tourists and foreigners living in Istanbul, waiters are more like hosts and some literally speak 4-5 languages.

Finally, there is no tab :) When you ask for the check, you tell them what you have ordered and pay accordingly, a weird thing to do for a cafe, maybe, but not for them.
