Fantastic view, Great food and wonderful location... easy to get to by taxi. There was a section where they bake the bread on the spot, kids loved looking at that. The grills were fantastic and the waiters paid special attention to their customers, catering our every need. The only downside, this is Egypt, Smoking is allowed everywhere, so people often...

I frequently encounter ISO lead auditors in my line of work. Secrecy of clients is essential, one lead auditor was telling me that most food auditing reveals disgusting facts, so he didn't reveal who's bad, but when i asked him who's good in terms of hygiene and ISO, he told me Sequoia.

Great food with menu varieties for breakfast, launch and dinner. Yet, never leave your car keys to the vale outside as couple of cars got stolen from them by people wearing same uniform. Yet, food is awesome Overpriced but worth it, amazing nile view

Once you have braved the Cairo traffic Sequoia is an oasis on the banks of Nile. The service excellent and friendly portions as unusually large making this a really good great evening. While the menu has a very limited offering in seafood the other menu items make up for this deficiency. Booking is essential

I have eaten here twice in the past two years and both occasions were very pleasant. The restaurant is located at the northern end of Zamalek Island where two parts of the Nile River come together, so there is water on two sides, a great setting. It has upscale decor and open air seating with a tent overhead. Both times... More

Sequoia is one of the best gatherings spots, very popular, clean, great location with an amazing Nile view, yummy food & a very friendly staff. if you are looking for a nice restaurant by the Nile with a lovely ambiance and a great middle eastern food, I would definitely recommend Sequoia to you.

Sequoia has it all! Great oriental menu, exciting ambience and décor and to top it off, amazing view of the Nile provides a serene backdrop to your meal. Highly recommended and especially at night for dinner when the view is accentuated with lights from across the Nile
