This should be regarded as a religious place. It's all locals. There is no Chinese. It is a very special experience. I ordered cappuccino-flavored hookah without nicotine. Most of the locals are very lively at night. There are some on the main street. The street of Ding Ding cars.
A 18th Century Islamic school that has been converted into a hookah bar? What's not to love? This was my favorite hookah bar in the entire city. I came here many times alone and with family and friends while I was in Istanbul. I tried many flavors of tobacco (I preferred cappucino) and I also liked to order tea, especially mint tea. The owner is a really funny guy who speaks a smattering of English, German, Italian and even Japanese. He used to like to ask me what various idioms meant.
This is a Turkish hookah, and it is a hookah for locals, in a mosque next to the Grand Bazaar. It has local characteristics. Everyone smokes hookahs, drinks tea and chats. Hookah tastes a lot of coffee, apple, vanilla, etc. What does it taste when you smoke it in, and what it tastes when you spit it out, it is very interesting and worth experiencing.
It is a very authentic place and I like it very much. If you are not sitting in a cubicle, you may need to share a table with a large group of people. It's worth coming.
I really like the design of this Turkish restaurant. Not only is it very local, but the dry food is also delicious.
