Shisha is very good. Service isn't great but once you flag a waiter down they'll continuously bring coal round. Have never had any of the food.

I had a "double apple with mint" and the sheesha was very good. Only had a water to this, as the place is a non alcoholic place. The place of good for having a sheesha, but I would not eat here.

One of my favourite spots. Try the skittles flavour - nice and sweet, orange tinge in the flavour and a pineapple for a head. I tend to avoid the food/drinks that need to be served in crockery for hygiene concerns. Stick to the shisha and bottled drinks.

The toilets are bad and filthy they should do some renovations. Not a place to chill out unless you just want to smoke shisha. Ambiance is bad

Very high priced, not clean, full of mosquitos and other flying creatures, coffee tastes bad. And you don't wanna know about the shisha. Sorry but, its not worth it.

The food is overpriced, the service is terrible, unartistic and careless for such a prising. Im never going back.

Most of the menu consists of middle eastern dishes, other than that you only have a choice of fries and pizza. Good theme of Middle eastern culture, opens till late night everyday.

Liked it's exotic interior and music but the food and service were lousy. I don't think I would come back.

Café Habibi has the best kebabs I think. Tender, spicy and juicy. And the humus is smoother than most, going down very well with the pitta bread. Their coffee and tea are strong and tasty, just as it should be. Sheesha smokers will also not be disappointed!
