We enjoyed our visit to Sesame and had great a service from Chris. We thought he was Bobby Flay's cousin or brother! Good service and suggestions for us. Try the creative menu of beverages and stay cool against the warm sun of southern Oregon. Lighter fare items include the spring rolls and the well seasoned edimame beans.

The atmosphere is great here and the back boardwalk next to the creek is nice. The food was average. I had the pad thai and it was rather bland. My wife had a different noodle dish that she liked. I would eat here again but would order something else. The service was just ok.

We ate there and had lettuce wraps with chicken while my wife had the Imperial Palace salad with chicken. They were both tasty, perfectly seasoned and out of this world. WE also had tea which was excellent. Service is a bit of a challenge but otherwise all was just perfect for a light meal.

Most recent visit, had dined there several times before. Very disappointing. Seaweed salad was tasteless and slimy. Sichuan noodles had little flavor and certainly nothing Sichuan in the seasonings. (I have visited Sichuan Province). There are too many good restaurants in Ashland to come back here. I know it is naive to expect authentic Asian flavors in this sort of... More

First of all, the food is very good. The Duck Pad Thai is a very nice balance of flavors and textures. But the service could be better. Waited a long time to place a drink order and we arrived before it was busy. Cocktails are also imaginative.

We have eaten here a couple of times. The menu is imaginative. the coconut milk Thai tea is a great vegan translation of traditional Thai ice tea. Good variety of options for all kinds of eaters. The inside decor is pretty and sitting by the creek is great for people watching and al fresco dining.

Much improved over our trip a few years ago. Food was excellent. I had Thai shrimp. My husband had Korean ribs. We were there before the dinner rush and had excellent service.

This a really great place to eat. Thai restaurant. If it's warm enough, you can sit outside. There's a varying according to season menu, which is great. Good prices. Close enough to Shakespeare to walk.

We love this menu--a pan-Asian combo of hot and cold dishes, beautifully presented and delicious. The setting is lovely too, sitting outside under umbrellas by the creek.
