Cairo’s Open-Air Dining at Sequoia

Sequoia’s location on the Northern tip of Zamalek, the main island in the Nile lying between Downtown Cairo and Giza,  allows diners to enjoy sweeping views of the river from any seat in the restaurant. Easily one of the most stylish dining destinations in the city, Sequoia’s dining room is a large open space with overhanging white canopies and minimalist decor to best highlight the views of the Nile and glowing city skyline. The cuisine is Mediterranean, featuring dishes originating from Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, Greece and Spain.  The extensive menu and convivial atmosphere, make Sequoia ideal for group dining. Beginning  with a selection of hot or cold mezza followed by a sampler dish such as the mixed grill, a platter of kebab, kofta, shish tawouk and veal chops, would be a good start for exploring the menu. After the meal, the low-lying, comfortable couches and stuffed chairs make the restaurant an ideal spot to lounge late into the evening enjoying a mint tea, cocktail or hookah.
