Q: Is Shisha Harmful?
Technically speaking yes, although only negligibly. The water takes away approximately 90% of the harmful chemicals (excluding THC), and so a pipe contains merely 0.5% nicotine and 0% tar. Also, if its not inhaled, there is no danger of lung cancer. We have herbal and tobacco molasses and tobacco is only supplied by request.
If you use our electronic shisha, then no.

Q: How long should each bowl last?
The average bowl with two to three smokers should last anywhere from 45 min.
to 1 hr. Make sure you keep it lit by having red hot charcoal burning at all times.
If you are using our electronic shisha then it will last for 5 hours.

Q: I don't have a credit card, can I still order from your site?
We offer other payment options such as cash, cheque or money order by mail or on the night of the event for your convenience.

Q: Do you hire outside of the United Kingdom?
We have in the past hired shisha pipes in Spain, however we request that you contact us with your exact hire requirements and we will reply to you with a quote and instructions on how to make payment. Alternatively you can contact us using the telephone number at the top of our web pages.

Q: How many pipes do you hire?
As many as you want, we recommend 5 shisha pipes per assistant, so if you require 10 pipes then this will be with 2 assistants to prepare and serve the pipes.

Q: What is the amount of time you stay at the event?
This is up to you, we normally stay for 5 hours but have also been to events lasting 10 hours a day for 3 days like Knebworth.

Q: Can you supply the marquee as well as the cushions?
Yes we can, we use a sub contractor for the supply and can organise this if required.

Q: How well dressed is the assistant?
The assistant is well dressed and if requested can also wear the arabic style dress for serving.
