Application for new shisha bar in Goodmayes being considered

Another shisha bar could open in Goodmayes if the council grants a planning application.

Redbridge Council is considering an application to convert the basement beneath Mirch Masala, in Goodmayes Road, into a cafe and shisha lounge with a marquee in an outside courtyard.

Popular in the Middle East and South Asia, shisha is flavoured tobacco usually smoked with a hookah pipe.

The tobacco is vapourised rather than burnt and passes through water before being inhaled.

There are already shisha bars in Gants Hill, Ilford town centre and Goodmayes.
