“Nothing special-place to have hookah”
Chi Cha offers a menu of "Modern Andean Cuisine" complimented by hookah's to enhance the lounging vibe. The comfortable couches and chairs are grouped together so informally you often become a part of someone else's conversation.

This is a nice place. I've been there several times and always come out satisfied. The hookah's are really nice, with different flavors. The waiters are always on point with their recommendations of selections of shishi flavors. The drinks and food are nice too!
