We've have been going to the Sesame Inn for years. Their food is always exceptional. Their lunch special Monday through Saturday is a great value. Excellent food; better than the "drive thru" 🍜🍲

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

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.
