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

I always come here for the lunch specials. The food is vegetarian friendly and always fresh. I can't say anything negative because all of my dining experiences here have always been positive! I love the hummus with pita as an appetizer. This is definitely a place where you can count on a fresh and healthy meal at a very low... More

Food is generally good however the place needs a good cleaning. If the kitchen is in the same unclean shape as I expect, I will not eat there again. Service was fair but overall a satisfactory experience.

The Sesame Seed restaurant has been one of my favorite restaurants since childhood. They give you an appetizer of pita bread, and it took us years to realize that their pita is best with an order of hummus. Their hummus is out-of-this-world. Creamy, smooth and flavorful with a few pieces of tomato and onion on top...I salivate just thinking about... More

Very dusty restaurant but they have an exceptional salad dressing that keeps me coming back. The salad is awesome and served with pita bread. Delivery is great.
