The find is consistently good. My favorite is Grand Marnier Shrimp. We usually eat at the one in Ross. Our whole family celebrates Chinese New Year there. It is a custom that we have been doing the last 30 years. My Grandson told his teacher that his Papa thinks that we are Chinese, but we are not.

Some of the best Chinese in Pittsburgh. I usually eat the Mt. Lebanon or the Ross Twp. Restaurant and the food is always great. Service is okay, could be better. But some of the best Chinese in Pittsburgh, hands down.

Sesame Inn is a bi-weekly family go to for lunch. It is the ONLY Chinese food my hubby will eat! Their hot and sour soup is to DIE for, although this last visit the crispy noodles were not the usual, and were buffet quality. The egg rolls are also always very tasty, however this last visit the duck sauce had... More

It had been a few years since I had food from here but with my wife heading that way to pick something up at Ross Park Mall I thought I'd call in an order. Although they forgot the chicken in the broccoli chicken order, everything else was great. I had General Tso and we both had egg rolls (Chicken, very... More

Seven family members in for a late night dinner of Chinese after driving 550 miles. Typical Chunese. Way too much food. But this time the flavor was superb. Everyone liked their dinners. All vegetables were crunchy and tasty. Most activity was for 'take-out'. Locals must really like this place. So did we!

Had dinner here--food was delicious. The atmosphere is very nice. The portions are huge and there is great variety. Had General Tso's chicken, a fish dish, Thai and beef. Not an inexpensive restaurant, but the quality is very good.

We were visiting the area and got a referral for "really good Chinese" food. So we went. First problem, was the service. It took more than 10 minutes for a waitress and they were not busy. Second problem, both dishes tasted the same. However, I ordered Cashew Chicken and my husband ordered Hunan Beef. This is supposed to be a... More

Had to order delivery to a hotel as I was traveling. The Sesame Inn was rated the best Chinese restaurant in Pittsburgh, and I wanted to try it out. The phone service was very friendly and helpful, as I wasn't sure about any conditions when ordering for delivery. The delivery person called me just before he was about to arrive... More

We enjoy this restaurant, as you can get Chinese of Thai food here. In addition, there are Light choices, that add to the appeal. The servings are large, so consider sharing. You can't go wrong at the Sesame Inn.

We had an enjoyable dinner here yesterday. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was fresh, hot and big portions. The pork dumplings were sensational as was the cold sesame noodles. The Hunan Chicken, Amazing Duo, Capital Chicken and beef with Green Beans were terrific - the veggies were crisp and cooked just right. Beware of the Sesame Beef... More
