Asain fusion treat

This is a great stop for lunch or dinner. I have eaten here many times. There are several specialty dishes which I love. I had the green curry and anything with noodles is a treat. It is close to Lithia Park and convenient for the OSF plays.

I had not been to Sesame for quite some time and ended up going with some friends about a week ago for lunch. We had a great time. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Our server had a great sense of humor and we had a good time bantering with her. All our meals were excellent. I... More

I really enjoyed eating here. The Dragon Noodles were really good. I usually have very few choices, as I am a vegetarian with celiac disease, but there were many choices for me. I loved the decor in the place, and the service was attentive. The kids' menu for my girlfriend's little sister was fun, with a Chinese New Year theme.... More

We often eat here when we attend the OSF in Ashland. We go early enough to allow plenty of time for eating before the play. This time we had the Bangkok Curry with a side of Asparagus. All was well prepared.

We've eaten at this restaurant before (as it's very convenient for dinner before a theater performance), and I've usually enjoyed the meals (and the cuisine is very beautiful). But I must add to my reviews that the lemon chicken that I had for dinner recently was not up to par. The chicken was dry and not very tender, made worse... More

For heaven's sake, do not go to Sesame on a cool day! We went last fall and walked out because it was freezing cold inside. We forgot about that and went again last week - same thing - but couldn't walk out because of a time crunch. We pointed out to the server that the entire (though mostly empty) restaurant... More

The Stone Rice Bowl is so delicious! My wife ordered it last time we ate here, and I tasted hers and couldn't get it out of my mind. When we visited Ashland again two weeks later, I had to try it for myself and this dish did not disappoint. Absolutely delicious. And their G&T is one of the best I've... More

Great venue, too bad the food wasn't up to the decor. We shared the egg rolls that were nicely presented and tasty. After that it was straight down hill. Our entrees looked good but there was no flavor except hot, hot, hot. My broccoli beef had a hand full of "store bought", stale chow mien noodles tossed in. My friend's... More

I did research prior to coming and visiting this place. The atmosphere is amazing! The interior restaurant is beautiful! White and orange color scheme creates a very elegant feel. White Asian Inspired lanterns hang from the ceiling. You have the option to dine by the Ashland Creek out back, the front of the restaurant near the Lithia Park or the... More

Did not have a real good experience. Food was not at all tasty, poor service, had no silverware or napkins, and slow with the check. What are they thinking?
