“Muslim culture firsthand”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Definitely worth visiting. Centuries of history and ambiance, a culture that was ancient before America was discovered.

“Best place to smoke in Istanbul”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very popular among local crowd. The suggestion is to go to the joint on the right side as you get in; they were the first to open a location and then the rest came along.
Prices are very reasonable, they charge you based on "Claims" rather than actual consumption.
Service is not that good in peak hours.

“For smoking like Turks”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

One of the best shisha I had, I try double Apple and apple tea , is good combination. Maybe is not a good idea for no smokers as there is to much smoke in the air

“Shisha in Istanbul”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you are tired of walking around in historical sites, you could stop by in this place to cool down. Turkish coffee highly recommended and people around you most probably speak English, so you could ask anything you want.
It is one of the oldest shisha cafe in Istanbul, customer profiles vary but mostly daytime younger crowd, university students, night time tourists and older guys around.
