The Middle Eastern/Lebanese food here is so off the hook that you completely forget about the less than stellar service or drab atmosphere. Our waiter seemed completely overwhelmed with 3 tables. The staff and clientele are rather homogenized for a Lebanese restaurant, but it's clean and Lord knows I've been to much worse places. Their flatbread was different and tasty.... More

We first visited this restaurant a few years ago when it was called Open Sesame - at that time, which was our first visit, we were really delighted with our meal, so much so, that each time we visit Manhattan we like to dine there. On our most recent visit, we discovered there had been a name change - it... More

Celebrated anniversary in corner of small but very nice restaurant near Manhattan Mall. Service and food was very good, wholesome, healthy and in the Mediterranean style. The menu offered a variety of items, including vegetarian and vegan, with more than enough food for one's appetite. We tried it and loved it!

We first came across this restaurant in April 2009, then known as Open Sesame. The food was scrumptious for six hungry people on that chilly evening. My daughter and I revisited the restaurant in January 2013 and enjoyed the food once again. I revisited this restaurant in March 2014 to find a new name with a great review in the... More

We tried the Moe's combo but they were out of Kafta. Lamb kebob was the replacement along with the chicken and beef kabobs. I chose the tabouleh and my friend chose the Moe's salad. Was disappointed that the two green salad choices had a combination of vegetables premade as some do not agree with me - it would have been... More

We were heading for a different place to eat when we detoured into Sesame Moe's and are so glad we did. The wife had hummus and a new dish Harissa Eggplant. I had perfectly prepared Lamb Kabob with Baba Ghannouj, pita and salad. Jessica was great explaining things to us and even gave us a slice of baklava for it... More

The ingredients here seem really high quality and very fresh. The salads are really tasty and have the right amount of dressing. The chicken breast was juicy and well marinated. I recommend this as a great lunch spot. Mint Ice Tea was great too!

When I saw the location was in a strip mall, I was skeptical. Don't let that throw you off, though, this place is EXCELLENT. The best mediterranean food I've had. The atmosphere and patio are very nice. Was just in town for a few days, but I'll be back every time I'm in the area!
