“I love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is my favorite place in Downtown Montreal. I used to go there for lunch every week when I was working in the area. I loved the food and the atmosphere, the decor is elegant and cozy in the same time.
You can see one of the owners cooking an the others serving wine or checking to see if the clients are happy. The place is always packed at noon and there is a line for take out. In Montreal, that is a good sign!
After going there for awhile they started to recognize us,( a bunch of girls) and they were always welcoming. It is such a difference to be treated nice and have a decent lunch at the same time. :)
My favorite dish is the tonkinoise soup and the chicken curry. I also tried the sushi, they make it on the spot.
I would recommend it for a lunch with friends and colleagues.
Great place!

“Sésame Restaurant. Located at 380, rue Saint-Jacques, Old Montréal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Somewhat a cafeteria style way of ordering, but the food is superb ! They do take out also.
You are greeted very nicely at the counter, where they ask for your firstname (for your order). You get to choose from the menu shown on the wall. The "spring roll" is huge and very tasty. Do try the General Tao Chicken. The best my friends & I have had so far anywhere in Old Montreal. The portions are generous, too. When not too busy, someone will come along to ask if everuthing is OK. Nice gesture. Been there twice for lunch and looking forward to going back soon.
