Not legal to include the gratuity in the bill. Was charged for bottled water and told we had to purchase water when we didn't want water. Very bad service

Great atmosphere, wide variety of tobacco flavors, and non-tobacco flavors, along with yummy food. Friday nigh, $5 cover charge at 9 pm for bellydancer entertainment (very worthwhile to sit, relax and watch).

Portions were really small, and very expensive. Staff were okay, but obligatory 20% tip didn't seem fair. Hookah was nice, lots of choices. We went on a night with a dancer, and she was very talented.

Staff doesn't understand their own Groupon. Tried to change us $35 on top of us already paying for the Groupon for 4 people. Rude waitress. Wasn't understanding. When the manager came he fixed the problem for us. They do include their own tip in the bill so you can't pick how much you leave. They also give themselves like a 40% tip so be prepared.

I had a great time, and will be returning very shortly. The food, service, and atmosphere were all top notch. Combine that with the unique experience of smoking the hookah, and it adds up to a terrific evening and a great date.
