I am fortunate enough to work closet to Sesame and visit once a week usually to buy my lunch. Fishfinger Friday being my favourite day to go there. It is always busy but the friendly staff seem to be able to get people in and out at some speed. The food is of high quality, and I have tried a... More

My first time back in Leeds after about 5 years, I am constantly astounded by how the food has evolved in quality and variety since then. Now this is a town you can finally eat in! Tons of cosy cafes, bistroey places, bars and gastropubs have lifted their game and Sesame is showing just that. While tempted by a wide... More

I tried Sesame when they first opened as a replacement for the defunct Sisushi. I wasn't impressed then, over-priced and the noodles were tasteless. I tried again today, giving them a second chance. The inside had been reorganised making even less space, chaotic queuing/service and music too loud that everyone seemed to struggle to hear each other when giving orders.... More

I ordered some sushi from sesame via the just eat web site. I received an email confirming my order and the delivery time and date. 25 minutes later, I get a telephone call telling me that they are going to have to cancel my order! It meant I was going to have to make another order somewhere else and wait... More

AMAZING!!! Throroughly recommend it. We ordered a takeaway for delivery, great customer service and they went the extra mile as we weren't technically within their delivery radius. The food was incredibly tasty, healthy and very authentic. It's by far the best sushi in Leeds. Will be ordering again. Thanks sesame!

Went for a lunch here on a drizzly Wednesday lunch, after having had it recommended. Whilst queuing I noticed a huge bag of rice left in the doorway, blocking the door. Being vegetarian, the inside looked hopeful, kind of boho chic and hippy-ish. Ordered a roasted haloumi and salsa. When it was handed to me on the plate, it looked... More

Tried this place for the first time last week at a lunch time. Sushi was great although I got a beef noodle soup at roughly £4 which truthfully was inedible - tasted of water and the beef was wrapped in some plastic like substance. Maybe I ordered wrongly and should have tried something else but in my opinion really wasn't... More

This place is promising, a fun fresh lunchtime place to get more than your average sandwiches. I have to say, I've only been once (a few months after it first opened) but not been again. I chose the beef wonton noodle soup, since it got a good review in Leeds Citylife newspaper. (oliver review). The lady was very pleasant and... More

Sesame is a lunchtime casual venue. Carry out or eat-in. Fresh handmade sushi or delicious noodles. Very friendly staff who are knowledgeable about the product lines. Some of the nicest sushi I have outside Asia. They also do a delivery platter service.= which is great for parties or business meetings.
