I always get the calamari appetizer and it is really good (crispy, not chewy). I like the lemongrass cooler, but it is a bit sweet. Love eating good food while sitting by the creek in beautiful Ashland.

Best edamame I've ever had...seriously. Grilled to perfection with some asian seasonings and olive oil, slightly blackened skins make it impossible to stop eating. I love the stone rice bowl that comes piping hot in a charcoal bowl with fried egg and a series of hot sauces in it. My husband loves the pad thai with a local IPA. I... More

Atmosphere and service were fantastic. We ordered two starters - the calamari and the pot stickers - both were amazing, and exceeded expectations. The Thai ice tea was more bitter than sweet, it was nice that they used raw sugar, but sugar doesn't dissolve in cold liquid. They need to make a simple syrup with the raw sugar to add... More

I love Sesame, but they keep changing their menu. I have had many great meals there, but at this time I walk by, read the current menu and keep on walking. Come on Sesame, why are you "fixing" what isn't broken. Sigh.... I am a local who remembers when the storefront you occupy was an office supply store. Your current... More

We wandered in to Sesame after a walk in Lithia Park. Interesting, well-flavored Asian fusion dishes. Open, bright and casual setting. Great place for lunch.

We have been here many times and usually give an excellent rating. The food was very good this time, but just a little less amazing than usual. Perhaps it was the selection. We both ordered the char siu pork. The base is thick wheat noodles. The pork is tender and there are fresh and cooked bean sprouts and mushrooms in... More

This restaurant sits right on Lithia Park with a great view of the park and creek - the food is interesting and creative - Wonderful duck potstickers, and hot stone bowl (My favorite). I have never had a bad meal here :)

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Ashland. Last week I ordered the calamari and it was just right - crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Sesame has consistently good food at a reasonable price - and the creekside setting is pretty sweet.

We eat Thai food all the time. Today we had one of the best Thai meals we've ever had at a restaurant called Sesame in Ashland, OR. I ordered the Bangkok Pork, which was a red curry dish with pulled (or shredded) pork, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, broccoli, bean sprouts and jasmine rice served to the side. It was quite spicy,...
