Lunch treat.

One must try the salad bar and the sushi is to die for. Bit of a long queue right out the door at lunchtime so best to avoid peak times! New favourite :)

I stop by Sesame every couple of weeks for my favourite salad in Leeds. A medium box gives you five or six options, falafel, tzatziki, (sometimes) croutons, dressing and a meat, fish or cheese. The salad mixes are always fresh and delicious with fourteen or so different items to choose from. I recommend the slightly spicy noodles and teriyaki salmon... More

Home made every day salads and sandwich fillings. Lots of choice to suit the cautious and adventurous! Very busy at lunchtime which says it all. The foot is fantastic.

I used to love Sesame, absolutely hands down it was one of the best little Cafe's in Leeds. Recently though the portions have become smaller and smaller, the fillings in the sandwiches are a joke and today I got a small salad for £3.50. The box isn't even full and it is so disappointing. I think the staff there need... More

I was going to consider the posh coffee/cake shop up the road but when I saw Fish Finger Sandwich on the board outside it made me smile & I went in. Lots of great food waiting for the lunch crowd that were not far behind me. Good coffee and very impressive service. Great value.

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!
