Sawah

[color=#5D5D5D][font=tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif][size=2]Atmosphere: 4.5 out of 5. This is a Turkish lounge at the bottom of the strip on 18th Street, next to Awash Ethiopian restaurant. Outdoor seating as well as nice seating indoors on the gound floor - well done - also a bar/dancefloor upstairs with a DJ. If you sit outside, it's great people-watching. Open very late, too

Hookah: 4.5 out of 5. Possibly the best in DC. A wide range of Nakhla and Starbuzz, loaded in big heads on KMs, with some variation on Egyptian washable hoses, and overall it rips like a beast. They use QLs, but they seem to have less taste than elsewhere.

Service: 3/5. The people here are nice but it's fairly new and I don't think they've worked out all the kinks, also their credit card machine is messed up, and while it WILL take credit cards, it takes a looong time.

Food: 3/5 Vaguely Turkish menu, it's ok. They do have massive cans of coconut juice, which is sweet

Price: 5/5. Nakhla for $10! That's the same price as the more expensive places in Beirut, and the cheapest place in DC by a factor of several dollars. SB is also cheaper than elsewhere, $15 or so. Food is reasonably priced.[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#5D5D5D][font=tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif][size=2]Overall recommendation: If you can deal with sometimes slow service and a wonky credit card machine, GO - the quality of the nargile and the price make it the best value in DC[/size][/font][/color]
