Nargila 72nd St. - closed

Called them last Monday for a take out order and learned they had closed. Spoke to the one on the East Side and they had no additional information.
I will miss them as food was excellent, even though service could be really poor at times.

  1. That's a shame. I've never been to the Nargila on the West Side, but I do frequent the East Side one, where I found service to be slightly better...until tonight. My husband and I ordered food, which was delivered. I had ordered the couscous with vegetables, which, to my surprise, came without the couscous. When my husband called to complain, the person he spoke to accused him of lying and at first refused to deliver the couscous, even though we only live one avenue block and 8 street blocks away from the restaurant. My husband finally got him to agree to bring over the couscous, and we are waiting for it as we speak. I'm pretty disappointed that given Nargila's recent West Side closing, the East Side location is not particularly eager to hold on to customers.

      The couscous did arrive, with some more vegetables. I'm not so miffed anymore.
