People tend to check in during these times:
Great Hookah bar in Astoria. Good music, fun atmosphere and and awesome hookah selection.
Great hookah there. Make sure you get new coals often to retain the flavor. Food and service is average, but damn that hookah is good.
Chicken Pakora with white sauce all the way.
Ask for Pirates Cave.
overspiced, fried snacks are delish--suprisingly good pakoras. but average hookahs here. interior is gawdy and darkening because of the smoke, but aura is relaxed. had a decent sahlep when i was here.
Get the chicken makhni
Can't beat $8 hookahs and good music...
chicken cheese steak is dalish!
The lights trip me out
Granted, there are a ton of places on Steinway to smoke, one of my favorite flavors is Paan Masala (Sweet Mint) and no one else does it better than this place. =]
I think this place is pretty awesome. It's nice to be with a group and just chill & talk. The atmosphere is relaxing and dim but the music can get loud but if you like that then by all means go.
If you order hummus, ask for naan instead of pita. Trust me.
