...but this one needs more work to be among them. The menu is varied and enticing. We ordered four dishes. When they came they were just a little underwhelming. Not bad at all. But certainly not exceptional. And the wait staff could certainly use some training. Long wait - even for water. The place was very busy, so I may... More

Good food, great location near the Shakespeare theaters. Our favorite dishes are the Green Curry Prawns and the lettuce wraps (listed as a starter, but enough for a light dinner). Nice outdoor seating along Ashland creek.

My partner and I met friends there for lunch. There were 10 of us and we told them we were headed to a play. My partner and I love Asian fusion which we know well. I consider the food "Asian fusion" There was not a lot of people in the restaurant but the service was very slow. We ordered and... More

Reasonably priced, fresh ingredients and delicious Pan Asian food. Quick walk to theaters. Too hot to sit outside but the outdoor tables on the park looked very appealing.. Huge portions- maybe a bit bigger than necessary, actually.

The menu features Thai and Vietnamese influenced dishes, soups, rice bowls, and salads. Tough to choose, all looked delicious. I enjoyed the spicy pork rice dish (awesome! Ate only half, so enough to to split for two) and the hubster had the pho and was very pleased. Creative cocktail menu and outside seating make this a favorite place in Downtown... More

We like Ashland, so it makes a great stop on our way up from the Bay Area. Tonight we decide to try Sesame Asian Kitchen. There are great views from the front (generous windows toward Lithia Park), or from the back patio (on the creek). And the food.... Inside, on this hot day, the air conditioning was just a little...

I have a food allergy. Once we told the waitress in Sesame, they staff and chef was very attentive to these requirements. We had the evening dinner to go, my dog ate most of the great shrimp that came with my meal, was very yummy. The rice and veggies crisp and tasty. We had a good time!

This restaurant has spendy, trendy prices, but their portions are small, certainly not worth the price. I must say that their Cucumber Salad and Kim Chee were good, but you only got a few bites. I also had ordered Teriyaki chicken and it was bland and tasteless. Really needed some more sauce or something. Don't bother with this place unless... More

A beautiful small restaurant nestled just around the corner of the heart of downtown. A clean and stylish establishment, with overly friendly staff. They checked up on how we were doing what seemed like every three minutes - lol! The food, however, was disappointing. I ordered the Duck Pad Thia & my husband chose the Chicken Coconut Curry. Lots of... More

We returned here after enjoying our meal during a previous trip to Ashland (couple of years ago). Great service, loved our food. Spicy edamame, tofu lettuce wraps, cocktails, lava cake w/ coconut ice cream - would order it all again.

Thank Melissa M
