Review by Khan:
We meet the owner they are such amazing people, made us feel like guest not customer, that makes a lot of difference.
Oooo! Forgot to mention the usual amazing Sheesha, must try paan kiwi vanilla, in ice bucket, smooth!!!!! Just amazing!
Safety and sanitization to the T! Staff well trained with all the safety measures! We shall visit this place again for sure!
8. QD’s, Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, Deira (04 295 6000)
It’s your best bet when you want something chilled out yet cool. Its spectacular views of Dubai Creek are best enjoyed around sunset, but equally nice later at night. The venue is open until 2am on weekdays and until 3am from Thursday to Saturday.
Review by Neha Bhutoria:
We ordered two Shishas here, one was grape mint and another new flavour that we tried was the rose flavour. Both the flavours were superb, rose was soft but short-lived, whereas grape mint was absolutely mesmerising.
7. Haveli Lounge and Cafe – Business Bay
For some splendid B-town tunes, fresh concept and intimate bonding scenes with the tribe, Haveli might just be your best bet!
The quirky venue offers guests the famous Indian paan flavour too.
Review by S.Anum Rizvi:
Their menu has a variety of veg to non- veg options. Some delicious blend of Indian and fusion dishes. We tried kurkuri bhindi, butter chicken, chicken malai and a lot of other scrumptious food. Every dish has a twisted name but was full of flavours.
6. Kabana – Jumeirah 3
Ofc, the Shisha here is FAB but this resto that offers contemporary Afghan Fusion cuisine with a Mediterranean twist is just what you need to try out if you’ve been craving something different and unique.
And this babe of a venue us open 24/7! WIN, WIN WINNNNNN!
Review by Sai Thakur,
The Afghan tea was really good along with nice Sheesha, one of the few places where sheesha is good in Dubayy.
5. Smoky Beach – Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR)
After your fun-filled day at the beach, kick off your sandals and soak in the beach goodness at Smoky Beach, JBR.
Recommendations? Grape Mint Shisha without a doubt.

Review by Neha Bhutoria,
We went to this place for shisha and ordered some food also there !! We ordered some potato nuggets and ordered two varieties of shisha !! One was a blueberry bust and one was grape mint, the blueberry bust was quite different and grape mint was average.
1. Flair 5 – The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC
Flair 5 isn’t a resto but a full-on experience! A retreat into a botanical paradise full of wild concoctions, ‘grammable spots and flirty shisha flavours. With the soothing music and great service, Flair 5 really is the COMPLETE experience.
