We look forward to DineLA week every year to try out different restaurants, hoping to discover a gem. Most of the time we're disappointed. This one just fell flat. As we walked in we noted there were only 2 other dinners. Perhaps a tell-tale indicator. The server was friendly, spoke fairly good English which was nice since this appears to... More

My wife, friends, and I frequently eat at the Sesame Grill. The luncheon specials are fantastic and include a wife variety of sumptious offerings. The prices for the specials are very good. The food is a mix of Asian and European flavors. The vegetable soup is as good as it gets. An early bird special gives you the same luncheon... More

Sesame Grill is one of our very favorite restaurants!!! In fact, we just celebrated our birthdays there (my husband and I are one day apart) and it was top notch as usual. Angela, the owner, is always on hand to make sure that everything goes perfectly and the wait staff is superb--especially Chris. I adore the Chilean Sea Bass with... More

Say "Ah!" This place is a nice surprise. It's great, and here's why: in the middle of a small shopping complex is this unassuming storefront that looks like nothing much. But when you go inside, you find that it's modestly upscale. The interior has some interesting features, like their colored-glass ceiling sculpture, and the whole ambiance says, "We care, but...

The Sesame Grill has become the go to place anytime I travel to the Arcadia area. Menu has many offerings from steaks, to pasta to a very good selection of seafood and the food is always fresh. Prices are very reasonable and the service is always excellent.

Just spent 2 weeks in town on business. We ate here 4 times and each dinner was excellent. From the apps to the entrees to desert, not a complaint. And it's very reasonably priced whether U order from the prix fix menu or a la carte. Highly recommend!

I was staying at a hotel nearby and wanted to grab a nice dinner. I saw the reviews for Sesame Grill on another site and thought it was worth a try. All I can say is WOW! I was a bit nervous as I was walking across the street as the restaurant is located in a strip mall with an... More

The menu offers a nice selection of food from Filet, Pasta and Fresh Fish. I have had Orange Roughy with... More

We needed quick dinner on the way to Pasadena concert, tried Sesame Grill. Don't be put off by strip mall front door. Inside, nice decor and warm welcome, attractively served and tasty pre-dinner selections with ample quantities. Definitely go back, reason restaurant has been around 20 years with good reviews. But don't expect inexpensive. 4 items above and lemonade to... More
