Had a wonderful meal at the Sesame Inn on New Year's Eve. We got there on the earlier side, between 5:30-6. We were told it would be a 30 min. wait. We were seated within 10 min. The restaurant was full but when we left, the lobby was packed as well. The food is always fresh and served hot. Ordered... More

We have ordered take-out and have eaten here for over 15 years and the service at the restaurant and the food quality has definitely changed in last year (2016). Its hard to decipher what happened, but in this last year we have had repeated disappointments and I am actually sad about this. >>>>>>>For example: regarding the food -The fried rice... More

Got seated right away. Go before 3 pm and get lunch menu prices. Extra rice to go is only $2. Good food.

Good Chinese food average priced. Service could be a little better. Our server was very mechanical , not very friendly or willing to make conversation. In fact it seemed to be the same with all of the staff. Atmosphere is nice. Portions were good sized. Ample parking. Overall very good.

This has been our go to for 14 years. Ken, the co-owner not only works every position to help his staff..but he visits all the tables he can every day to make sure you are completely satisfied. Get the Amazing Chicken with a side of black bean sauce and an egg roll. You'll thank me!!

Takeout or delivery, we have never been disappointed by the quality of the food. This time we picked up the Orange beef, amazing chicken, Orange chicken, and chicken fried rice. It was ready to go 10 minutes after we ordered despite the restaurant bring very busy. All were very good.

Have been going here for years. Consistently strong Chinese (American). Lots of traditional options. Had the Mongolian beef, Gen Tsos, lo mein and a tofu dish. All always very good. Soups and egg rolls very good too. Prices are Fair. Full bar. Staff is pretty friendly and efficient.

Ken Chang, one of the owners, greets as many tables as he can, and works every position to help get the food and drinks to you fast. The portions are huge and the price is perfect.

Took family to lunch recently. Food is usually very good. This time around our egg rolls were very greasy and our food was cold when it came to the table. Our server was overly attentive, clearing plates and boxing meals while others were still finishing their food. The last thing I want is to feel rushed at a sit down... More
