Best atmosphere I've witnessed in any restaurant in my life. You are literlly sitting in a table just a meter from the water. Gret Nike breeze combined with a great view of Nile buildings makes this a near perfect restaurant. Only slight negatives are their somewhat slow service and not the friendliest staff.

The restaurant has a beautiful setting along the Nile and a great ambiance. The food is delicious and the service is friendly if a bit slow when crowded. A great place to relax for a meal, drinks and sheesha.

The restaurant has a pretty good atmosphere. The service is good and so is the meal I had. Comparing other restaurants in the Cairo/Maadi area Sequoia is a bit pricy. However, once every so often it is ok. I still would go back again.

An okay experience, excellent location, but needs a lot of work on the service and the food, the food is not bad, for for such prices needs to be much better. Overall experience is fine, will go there again, but with no high expectations.

Thirteen Americans, we had dinner and paid cash...which the waiter grabbed and ran away with before coming back to say we did not have enough cash for paying the bill. We had to add an additional 600 Egyptian pounds to the pot. Hope the waiter enjoys the spoils of his take. I will tell everyone about our experience. The food... More

Sequoia is the best place to hang out in Cairo today, you can go enjoy the daily sun and stunning view of the Nile or you can go at night enjoy a nice dinner. You will find excellent food quality and service a real joy

I really love sequoia, it has a great view and atmosphere. I forgot my passport in this place and I received it from the manager without any trouble so it's also a very safe place. I really recommend this restaurant.
