I've been coming here for 10 year 4 different owners always the same experience. The Nader has been there 9 years and still treats everyone with respect and always gives incredible service. He keeps the essence of the legendary shisha house alive. Good place to relax in the afternoon whether your alone or with a group. Pipes have slipped a... More

Attitude is terrible (not the waitress - she is nice) but the service from the men is sub par. No hot water for second cup of tea, never come back and ask you if you want anything else, got booted out for playing cards after 8:00 on a school night - what gives? They had no problem with a group... More

We live nearby and get our pizza take-out. No delivery service. Excellent food. Try to phone in your order before pick-up...it can be a fairly long wait. I can't remember what it's called but smoking is allowed in those big pipes with the flavored tobacco sold on-site, but we never found the smoking bothersome or offensive while we waited.

Calgary has a lot of Middle Eastern (Lebanese predominantly) restaurants and cafes. Cafe Med (as we call it for short) is my all-time favourite. I have been to Mirage, La Brava, Medina, Babylon, and so on but nothing beats this place. Before I continue, I should mention that Brava and Medina are right next to Cafe Med, both offering shisha...
