After being here 4-5 times, this Bistro definitely deserves a review from me :)

It's a nice place to hang out with friends for drinks. LImited menu with small and large plates but it's tastefully done. I like their lamb chops and Pita bread pizza. Those are my fav. Owner and the gals working there are super friendly. They come and start chatting, even start eating from our plates. LOL

When we are there, we always get the Hookah's!! The gals keep a check on us which is good. The owner is so cool, he even allows us to play asian/any music of our choice. IT's very welcoming place

“Hookah Lounge Review only”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

This review is for the hookah lounge only.

So sad- this use to be one of my favorite places for hookah in the south bay. I loved the outdoor table firepits but now they are no more (due to city regulation). Everything else about this place is just meh.

- Uncomfortable seating
- Service- a lot of the waiters/waitresses can't speak English very well, friend ordered food and it too FOREVER got get there, had to ask to get ash blown out
- They no longer even have heating lamps so it was COLD!
- Hookah is not that great and on the expensive side at $20 a pop

Don't think I'll be coming back here....the charm was lost with the removal of the firepits
