Rotana Restaurant & Hookah Lounge, where patrons can share shisha alongside Mediterranean dishes like seasoned lamb and chicken shwarma, will debut a second location at 4200 Wade Green Rd. in Kennesaw this March.
“It’s a college town and it’s close to my first location, so it’s convenient for me,” owner Ahmed Azouz told What Now Atlanta. “I love hookah, I like to smoke it to give me relaxation. I love the atmosphere and I like the concept.”
Previously the franchisee of multiple Firehouse Subs locations, operating multiple restaurants is a familiar and welcome challenge for Azouz.
The second Rotana’s will share the same offerings as its original location at 585 Franklin Gateway SE in Marietta — Egyptian Fool Moudamas, Greek falafel, Levatine Baba Ganoush, a generous array of kebabs and nearly 30 different hookah flavors all coexist on its menu.
