This saturday I was along with a few friends of mine, whom i had met after a loong time, so we wanted a place where we could sit confortably for a loooong time n have some really good hukka n drinks n food. So i decided to go to shisha so that we could order the hukka n drinks first, then slowly move on to starters coz we were not hungry when we reached, n then dinner much later. We reached early almost by 7.30 but to my surprise, the place was already abuzz... We were looking for a comfortable seat but all the sofa side seats were full. We were escorted to a table, but we were hoping to get one of the comfortable seats. The manager saw the
discomfort on our face, and came to our place to check if something
was wrong, he could figure out our plan, so he got us our sofa side seats in just 10 minutes.So once we settled on our new seats, which we wished were a little bigger coz there were just five of us, and the area could accomodate
only four.Anyhow we ordered our drinks n the hukka. It arrived pretty soon, and by that time the place had started to pour in. The ambience was amazing. the place had this wooden feelin, with thick persian carpets every where. There were a lot of small trees n shrubs around. The only lighting was of candles placed on tables..
which was looking very good. At one end they had this bigg cupboard besides the bar table storing a lot of old style hukkas, i really liked going thruogh each one of them. The overall ambience gave me very summery feeling of the carribean(the food is iranian or persian so i should have got the persian feeling). The music they were playing was going along so very well with the ambience, they were playing some smoothe drums, followed by some saxophone( may be thats y the carribean style). And guess what, the drink i ordered was along with a breezer which was named "Jamaican Passion" ( btw jamaican passion is the best flavour of breezer.. maybe thats the reason why i felt the carribean feel). I had known that this place also played live music,but did not know when :(
The hukka was rather stylish as compared to the other hukkas i have tried in other places(But its needless to say mocha is the best in that business) However the flavour was a little bland. I always love green apple or lime or mint. Sometimes even orange is good, but this one wasent so great. Still the hukka n the drinks made a good combo,
n we were engrossed in our chit-chat. While this was happeing, i saw a small kitten climb onto our neighbours table :P i dont know if it was a part of the ambience, but i liked playing with it( I knw most of you would not like a cat jump onto your table , but its fine with me:P ) By this time the hukka had started to give me some kicks, but it was mild and the feeling was very temperory.
We ordered a few starters, the quantity was very dissappointing, but they tasted very well.
at 10 pm # i noticed a wierd tradition that they follow, one of
their men walked around the whole area ringing a triangular gong.. hehe that was so funny.. i have no idea why he did that.. bt it looked good :P
I did not have an appetite for the main course.. so we skipped it.I would surely get back to this place again..
full marks for the ambience and service..
