“Great food and helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

I had dinner with friends last week and had a great meal. I have always loved the food here and certainly will keep coming back. They have a vegetarian/vegan menu so make sure you ask for it if you are so inclined.

Their pad thais are delicious and their green curry is probably one of the best in Newcastle.

“Average Menu, quite expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Taking friends to a special night out, we decided to go to sesame on the lake at Belmont, we found the menu quite ordinary, the food was ok, but nothing to write home about, except for the prices, you would think that you were eating in a tip Thai restaurant in the eastern suburbs of Sydney

“"Great good & Great Service!"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Booked in for a romantic dinner on the 16/12/12 & wasn't disappointed. The Staff were great and very friendly. We had entree & mains and had sufficient time between each to sit and relax, enjoying the atmosphere. The BYO was a refreshing change and certainly assisted in making it an enjoyable evening. The food was genuine Thai & reasonably priced. Would certainly recommend visiting, I know I'll be back.

“Fresh and Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

We live 5 minutes away from Sesames, so we eat there often.

Sesame's is great for a casual, no fuss, healthy mid week meal. You can usually pop down there with little notice so it's a top choice when you are low on groceries or have had a hard day at work. It is reasonably priced and the staff are wonderful.

The fittings are beautiful and there are always great tunes playing, Cafe Del Mar etc.

If you live in the area, give Sesame's a try

“Always a taste sensation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We are regular diners of Sesames On the Lake. The food always has the most amazing flavours, and we never leave feeling hungry. Reservations always need to be made ahead of time due to it's popularity. My favorites are the Mussaman curry and the red chicken curry.
