Things you can book in our restaurant
Shisha, or also known as ‘hookah’, is one of the oldest forms of entertainment that originated during the colonization of British India. In other accounts, shisha was invented by Abul’-Fath Gilani, a Persian inventor under the service of Akbar who then ruled the city of Fatehpur Sikri in the Indian subcontinent.
A shisha is a single unit, multi-stemmed apparatus used for heating or vaporizing flavoured and plain tobacco. In some countries, Shisha is used to smoke cannabis, hashish, or opium. In the Middle-East, the culture of using hookah or shisha has a deep connection to how people tell stories.
Usually, people sit and gather in a small space while smoking and passing around the shisha nozzle. Countries such as India, Persia, Turkey, and Egypt practise this activity that eventually became a way to strengthen the bond of a community.
Persia adopted the practice of using hookah in the 17th century wherein they used a strong, dark leaf called Ajami. Aside from the bond, it creates between people, using shisha also has a sophisticated feel to it because of the ornate design of each hookah device.
In the 18th century, hookah was introduced in the country of Turkey where it was transformed into an even elegant device that boasts intricate designs and adorned with Turkish glass accents.
Here at Shisha Nasir, we want to promote the usage of shisha for our Middle Eastern and local patrons who want to have a more meaningful bond with the friends or family. We offer flavoured and plain tobacco that you can enjoy using our high-quality shisha devices. If you want to book a shisha room, you can message our staff.
