What Our Clients Says About Us

Amazing atmosphere, staff is very attentive and welcoming while still letting you enjoy your meal. Food and drinks were incredible, beyond our expectations. Must try their Shisha and chicken Kabab presented with very unique style and traditional touch of garnished seasoning.

I went to Sarai Lounge yesterday night and the experience was amazing. The staff were very polite and welcoming, the food was really tasty and enjoyable, the Shisha was really good, and the music was the best. Great Food, Great Staff, Great Music, and Great Shisha. I recommend Sarai for a great night out!


Amazing place, great variety of quality Shishas. Very friendly, accommodating stuff. Cosy nice interior, very spacious. We went there with a group of my friends and they played Russian songs for us, as well some hip hop and relaxing Indian music. Their tea is very soothing and perfect for the shisha. Definetely recommend this place, it’s the best place in the K/W. Will come here again!!!
