I was looking forward to going to Sequoia because I had heard so much about it. The setting on the Nile is lovely, but that is the only thing. Sequoia is exaggeratedly expensive, serve tiny portions and the food I ate was terrible. I ordered the meat fata shawerma dish. The meat was hard, the rice was soggy, topped off... More

This place has got 'perfection' all over it...the venue, the view, the interior design and decorations and of course the FOOD! I love everything about this place as you can tell. Make sure to reserve in advance and you won't regret the dining experience.
