- Situated next to the Nile on Zamalek, Sequoia is a favourite haunt of fashionable young Cairenes. You can choose to sit at one of dozens of outdoor tables, or lounge on comfy cushions in the shelter of Sequoia's white marquee. Sequoia serves a wide range of Egyptian and Mediterranean classics, and also has a decent sushi menu. As well as food, Sequoia has a wide selection of alcohol and shisha pipes (water pipes), and is renowned for its cocktails. Service can be a bit on the slow side, but Sequoia is a place to take your time and enjoy the beautiful Nile-side setting. It's a particularly good place to catch sunset, as the calls of the muezzin float over the water while you sip your cocktail and puff contentedly on your shisha.
