Sesame’s menu is inspired by the various cultures of the Far East, representing a fusion of cuisines from the South China Seas. We incorporate fresh Asian vegetables, free-range meats and house-blended spices with other specialty ingredients to create seasonal menus. Local partnerships allow us to feature the best ingredients and we offer beer, wine, sake and specialty cocktails to complete the experience.

Yum!

Excellent meals for both my husband and myself. The service is wanting, as wait staff sometime disappear even when they are not busy.

We have eaten here several times and have found both the food and service worth a return visit. The menu is varied with touches of Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese cuisines, prepared in an original combination. We like the spicy choices and the freshness of the ingredients. Since we came last year, the restaurant has added outside tables along the creek... More

A close to theater and park attractive restaurant which features a wide range of Asian food - starters-salads-noodles-meats-fish-and non gluten, vegan, and vegetarian options. Service is welcoming, knowledgable, and attentive. Decor is simple with tables well spaced for privacy and noise level is low. Our party of 11 persons had a variety of selections and all were delighted with their... More

I always eat here when in Ashland -- nothing has been disappointing and my companions -- including fussy grandchildren -- have been pleased.

I discovered this restaurant in 2013 and loved the food and the plating and the service. Last year I had occasion to come three times, twice with other people who also loved it, and once on my own. Again this year, when I had the Alaskan Salmon and a Yuzu Ginger Drop, both excellent. I note the wait staff is... More

Exceeded my expectations. Right across from Lithia Park in downtown area and close proximity to Shakespeare Festival. Asian fusion menu with many delicious options makes it hard to pick just one, so recommend ordering a few and sharing. Fresh ingredients. Fast service. Yummy cocktails. Request a table outside in walkway along riverbank because it is so relaxing. Daniel was our... More

Almost feel like this place doesn't even need a review because it is so well known locally for exceptional tastes and service. In a few words-amazing menu and service. The flavors are wonderful and always in balance with the dish. Oh yes- fresh, fresh fresh! Great dining.

My wife and I went here before seeing a play. We started with an order of summer rolls. They were well made with two sauces, one of which was nice and spicy. It's nice when a sauce that is supposed to be spicy actually is! For entrees, my wife had the stone bowl, which she enjoyed. The bowl stays hot... More

I was pleasantly pleased with the minor adaptations to my favorites! I'm not big on duck, but it tasted great in my Pad Thai. Pork Buns with the pork on the outside was a surprise, but just another way this interesting little Ashland secret presents asian food in a unique way! The price was just right (for Ashland) and the... More
