The location of the place overlooking the Nile is immaculate. The seating is comfortable and service is fine . The food is also fine . If you are a hookah fan this might be a place to consider .

My first time at sequoia, what a beautiful place with an amazing view. The service and the food were great. It's definitely something Egypt should be proud of.

Idyllically located at the tip of Zamaalek island in the middle of the Nile. We enjoyed a truly sublime lunch out at this open-air restaurant right by the Nile. Perfect warmth. Comfortable but relaxed. Fantastic classic mezze: tabouleh, fatouche, moutabel, vine leaves, samboussek, kofte, kibbeh, grilled halloumi etc, All washed down with a big pitcher of sangria!

One of best spots in Zamalek with significant view of the Nile. Oriental food, soft and hard drinks are available in addition to Shisha for who likes it! Enjoy ;)

What a beautiful gem on the Nile! Such a lovely venue and fantastic food! Very friendly staff! The ambiance here is not to be missed. Very well appointed, open atmosphere that curls around the Nile. They create a stunning Nile dining experience. The menu is extensive and lovely. It has been a long time since I have been to Egypt... More

If you need a very elegant atmosphere with an amazing Nile views and elite company so sequoia will be your destination exactly. Very professional staff, a lot of food varieties and shisha is perfect. A must try of Cairo

This place is an excellent place for fine dining in a certain sense, it has a great location and good food. Its service though is abysmal which is the reason for why I'm not rating it as 5 stars. Certainly on the pricey end and with that view it is really pleasant except for how ill trained the staff is... More

If you want to feel the Nile breeze , you should go to Sequoia. The view is breathtaking and the food is more than great. You will like everything.
