That is definitely cheap, I bought some Nakhla from a local arab shop, it was 250g of Naklha Strawberry and it tasted rubbish. Im sure it was fake but it looked genuine.

All I would say is be carefull, maybe buy it and see how it smokes because fakes taste burnt

Genuine Al Fakher looks like this:



Heres a picture with fake Al Fakher on the left and original on the right:



Genuine Al Fakher has a tub with a handle, ive noticed that the fake ones dont have that and the plastic of the tub tends to be pretty flimsy comapred to the genuine one and then inside the genuine AF tub is a yellow zip lock bag with the Al Fakher logo on it whereas the fake ones tend to have the tobacco in a transparent plastic bag tied with tape. Also note the fake AF box doesnt have the AF logo with the crown above the Arabic writing of Al Fakher.

Hope this helps. Please let us know if they got original or fake.

If the tub didn't have the seal and the tub doesn't have a handle, then I'd say it's fake

you can tell its a fake from the box, just look at the pictures of the shisha pipes.

The orginal ones (on the bottom left of the box) are small hookah pipes but the fakes are longer.

Also check the resealable bag for any mispelt words i.e. "Quality" will be spelt as "Qality"

A real Al Fakher box should always be wrapped in plastic and have that pealable green seal on the plastic.
