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

Good food, very accommodating. Substituted a side for us for no charge. Interesting choices for beer. Would go back again.

Went there for lunch after visiting some customers and ordered a falafel sandwich and a Blue Sky root beer drink. Suprisingly the pita was pretty sparse on the greens and the fried chickpea balls. I was still hungry after my meal. Service was average and the place is unique and quirky with antique toys and brick-a-brak strewn around the dining... More

Tucked quirkily in a village setting, this Danbury gem is always worthy of one's time and money. A warm, comfortable house welcomes you , filled to its very rafters with adorable kitch and toy memories of an era long ago but near to everyone's hearts. The menu is adequate to tease or please any palate, with special kudos to the... More

This quaint, low-key, old timer restaurant in an old Victorian house in Wooster Village has the most eclectic atmosphere, friendly servers, and the most outstanding humus, tabuli and baba ghanouj in all New England. Prices are reasonable. When busy, diners may be elbow to elbow, but one can request a quieter table upstairs. Call ahead for take-out. There's no other... More
