Me and my girlfriend came here last night. (I've been in the past, once) She loved it, the reason why I'm writing a review about it now, is because "Mike aka The situation" from JERSEY SHORE was there with his personal entourage! I said

1) Not a date place, if you saw the look on my girlfriend's face when she saw the place, not so pleasant but we agreed to give them a try\r

This charming hookah spot had the most delicious hookah I have ever had and they have a lot of different flavors. The lighting and decor make this a great spot for a date(romantic,private) but I had a great time with a group of my girlfriends. They play a wide variety of great music and on the weekends they have a beautiful belly dancer.The staff are very friendly and accommodating. I recommend the white grape and jasmine flavors for your hookah and you CAN NOT leave without trying some of the mint tea.

Pros: great hookah,fun atmosphere

This unique hookah bar is the best place I have been so far (and trust me I have been to quite a lot of hookah bars in NYC). Coming from one of the Arabic countries, where going to hookah bars with bunch of friends is quite popular, I have been looking for a place in Manhattan to invite one of my Russian friends. I decided to check this hookah bar out (I live on lower East side, and this spot seemed very convenient for me). We ordered double apple flavor, which was amazing. I have to admit that they carry quite a lot of tobacco flavors (try also white grape, or double flavor: strawberry - banana). The service was unbelievable. The owner of the place, Karam, makes sure that everything goes well; they constantly checked whether everything was to our liking, and what amazed me the most is that the do change coals quite often, I didn't have to ask a single time!!! (when I went to other hookah bars, they just bring the hookah and just forget about you for at least 20 mins especially when it is busy). The place is very clean, cozy, and has the Egyptian artwork covering the walls. The owner of the place even performed a show for us, he blew hookah bubbles!!! that was pretty amazing!!! I had such a great experience that the next night, I invited my friends from DC, who were visiting NYC, to this hookah bar, because I was 100% sure that nothing would spoil our time at Khufu. We ordered couple hookahs, and got the third one for free from the owner!!! What a surprise! Now they have one more loyal customer: high quality tobacco, great atmosphere, premium customer service, well designed and clean place, very affordable prices, great location, and free hookah. I couldn't ask for more!!!

Message from Cafe Khufu

Khufu is not just a cafe, it is a visceral experience. Pleasing the eyes, the ears, as well as the palette. Thick aromatic smoke created by the hookah will transport you to an eastern journey you will not soon forget. Tantalizing the soul and sparking the desert memory in all of us. Cafe Khufu 's atmosphere was inspired and created by owner Paul S. and his uncle Karam Bish. For years both Paul and Karam have been hookah connoisseurs and have patronized nearly all of NYC's hookah cafes and lounges. After recognizing the lack of atmosphere and service, they went out to create the pinnacle of all hookah experiences. Drawing from their middle eastern heritage, and their intrigue of all things cosmic, Paul and Karam have created a space in the Jungle we call NYC, of plush comfort, romance, and most important of all.... a cool, chill vibe, with a level of service and quality not found in any other NYC Hookah cafe. For our fellow hookah connoisseurs, we offer only premium top quality herbal shisha, with a multitude of flavors and flavor combinations. Guaranteeing hands down THE BEST HOOKAH IN ALL OF NYC!!!
