The Sequoia is located on the nile and has a small path that leads you to the restaurant which is covered with white sail and decorated with cream sofa, cushions and outdoor heaters (during winter). Its atmosphere cozy and friendly make it a must go for Zamalek local and tourist, the food which is a selection of arabic mezzes, such as hummus, falafel, babaghannoush, tahina etc. it is more than an excuse for a get together. Pizza are served as well. The food quality is good even tough it does not reach high level of food experience (very hard to reach in Cairo tough).
You may smoke the shisha like in the old smoking cafes.. I do suggest a stop in this place, I always do when I go to Cairo. During spring and summer, it is open air and you can relax while enjoying the view of the Nile..
