Al fakher is a more honey based shisha than nakhla witch has more molasses.The extra honey does bring out fruit flavors better.But lacks in complexity and nakhla smokers preffer a less candy sweet more complex smoke.

nakhla is more natural flavors, not the uber candy flavors of AF, if you know how to smoke hookah right though the only difference should be personal taste of flavors no other differences

I am a converted nakhla fan but i think most shisha compaines have there good and bad and i sure love nakhla now though but af and sb have a place in my heart just not as big. The funny thing is ive only had a hand full of flavors from nakhla thats all it took for me to make them one of my top choices.

The thing i love about Nakhla is that it reminds me of something really traditional. While, i havent had the real traditional shishas from the mid east, its the closest i think i can get. The other shishas like starbuzz are nice, but you dont get that tobacco flavor that sets it apart from any other washed shisha. Not to mention, Nakhla is one of the cheapest shishas. I love Nakhla and i plan on smoking it for a long time. But have yet to try Cardamom. I love indian food, and i know they use that a bit in it, and i have the spice in my cupboard, i hope its good.

Big fan here. Picked up a box of Mizo grape and a 100g box of banana tonight from my local Mid East market/café. Which was great, there were several groups enjoying good food and hookah on the patio there. I was jealous.

In the beginning, God said, "Let there be Nakhla." and there was....and it was good.

Some time later the evils of mankind influenced the divinity of Nakhla and Tropicana flavor was born, and the world was corrupted.

i feel dumb posting this, but i've never had an outstanding smoke with nakhla. i know, i know, shame on me. the only method i haven't tried is the tangiers method which i hope to try soon.

i can get great flavor, but i can't get average clouds. i don't know why, but it pisses me off. the smoke is there but it's nowhere near the hp videos i see on nakhla reviews.

i know clouds aren't a big deal, but it doesn't feel right when i don't have an average amount of smoke. i'll add coals and it gets great for 5 minutes, but after that it gets harsh. i've tried the windcover too.

it pisses me off because i can smoke any brand without problems except nakhla.

what flavors are you trying it with? i found it works better to pack it a bit tighter and leave a gap almost 1/4 of an inch. i then put the coals on so they are fully on the bowl, put a wind cover on for a few mins, take the cover off, move the coals and hang them off the edge a bit with out flipping and it gets it going really well

i tried double apple, mandarin, earl grey, and chocomint multiple times.
i still have earl grey and chocomint (that one wasn't too bad),
and i'm getting another box of DA this week because i traded it with this dude and he doesn't even like it!!
i love the taste and smell but i just can't get it to smoke properly.
pack tighter in what kind of bowl?
i will try that. your methods are always so crazy but they seem to work well

Bahrini apple,Double apple,mint,strawberry,El basha Grapes,Fahkfahina fruit cocktail.

not really a big fruity flavor smoker I smoke double apple or barini apple 75% of the time.

Every new brand I try leaves me unsatisfied.I do keep some al fahker around to smoke with my buddies when the come over,they have trouble standing up to the awsome glory that is nakhla.
agreed =)

i use a mod bowl. i think i have found that it needs to be tamped down, not a very tight pack just fluff it a bit higher then you want it and tap it down a bit.

if you use a deeper egyptian style bowl you will probably be able to smoke it easier, seems like the mod bowl is a bit more to get it just right.

also the clouds wont easily get as big as starbuzz and af, if you do it just right it will be there with no harshness but when that happens its just like heaven with the amount of flavor and all, all other times is just about heaven
