I had high hopes, since this highly rated restaurant sat on the bank of the Nile, etc... But the first disappointment was a paucity of tables outside, three quarters of them are not out on the river, and the effect is therefore the same as being indoors. Service was average, great concierge service (needed after struggle through labyrinthine Cairo traffic,... More

Sequoia was one of the top restaurants and its shisha was one of the best. We visited sequoia on a Friday, beautiful view, however, the service was way too slow. We finished our food and all the plates and leftovers were on our table for like half an hour. The shisha was also not so great like before.

Spent my wife's birthday and had a great meal! Unbeatable view and great service. Lean environment and relaxed, you would enjoy the meal and view.

Last Easter we ate at this restaurant. The Food was tasty and the portions were quite sufficent, but what I liked most about this restaurant is the beautiful location. It gave us a chance to enjoy the Nile. I would love to go there again.

Like an island in the middle of the Nile. Sequoia scenery is great . If the food is not as great or the service of the waiters overwhelmed by crowd is not the best...it largely compensated by the poetic Nile view

One of the best spots on river Nile. We stayed there for hours just enjoying the view. The food is great .. there you can find all the traditional Egyptian food (molokhyiah, bamiah, ...) all very tasteful. Sequoia is certainly an experience not to be missed while you're in Cairo.

if you are looking for great selection of Egyptian and Lebanese cousin in addition to Nile view either in the evening or midday I would highly recommend to go to Sequoia.
