We've been going to Sesame Seed for years. Their hummus is the best, along with the salad. Love their homemade soups and lunch specials--many veggie entrees. We often get takeout and eat it for lunch during the week.

Four of us dined at Sesame Seed Restaurant on a Monday in late October. We arrived at the restaurant at about 6:30 PM. We were promptly seated in the quaint/rustic/funky dining room. Only two or three other tables were occupied. The menu offers a very extensive set of dinner options, many more than one might expect from a restaurant of... More

We have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while, but it just seemed out of the way of our usual places. I'm glad we finally made the time. We went on a Saturday evening and the upstairs was open with plenty of tables for our small party of 3. Others came within the next 30 min there were... More

Usually I order takeout from Sesame Seed, but recently decided to have lunch inside. I truly enjoy the food here. They do a nice fresh take on middleastern favorites like falafels, lamb kebabs, humus and dips. So no complaints there whatsoever. Lamb kebab was nicely marinated and juicy. Service was also pleasant and easy. My one suggestion is to have... More

The food is delicious. Everything I have tried, including the dips and salads, were excellent. The humus is the best in town. It is hard to get past the dirt, all the antique, or old, stuff hanging around the tables, and the greasy tables. We have solved this problem by ordering takeout and hope that the kitchen isn't as dirty... More

While we have been to the Sesame Seed many times over the past twenty years, the prices have gone up, and the service has gone downhill and we will not return. We were hugely disappointed and had the worst evening ever. Slow is an understatement. We waited more than ten minutes before anyone could take a drink order. Our waitress... More

Sesame Seed is located in an old store front building with a small patio on the street side. Eclectic décor of various collections - tea pots, pictures, telephones, etc. Lovely menu of nice variety and reasonable pricing. I had the meat sampler that included two variations of lamb (both were excellent), a salad with the best tomatoes I have tasted... More

Get past the uneven floorboards, the less than pristine surroundings, the menu on old time mimeographed sheets. Sesame Seed is a unique, fun, inexpensive, tasty place to enjoy a meal. A very diverse menu. Decent choice of beer and wine. Friendly but occasionally slow service. The Sesame Seed salad - unchanged for over 20 years, is a not to miss... More

My relatives take me here whenever I'm in town. I like the old nick nacks and photos lining the wall, though I reckon they could do with a dusting. Nevertheless a bit of dust doesn't detract from the food. Love the salad with extra feta, the spanakopita, the falafel. Definitely looking forward to next visit.

If you can get past the fact that the place needs a good dusting and just general cleaning everywhere---then you'll get an absolutely fabulous meal and a great price. The food is fresher than anywhere else around. Unique dishes you won't find anywhere else either. The prices are very low for the quality and quantity of food. I like to... More
