Let's be honest, Ashland is not the place for world class food; for that, drive 6 hours south to San Fransisco, or drive six hours north for second best Portland. And the few good places are only open for dinner. Given that, when in need of a lunch this place used to serve. It has now gone from mediocre to... More

We ate at sesame and normally we enjoy Thai food. We were not very happy with the food. All the dishes tasted the same, should have known by the lack of patrons dining there. The service was good and we did not venture the dessert menu.

I ate here with my monthly book group. We had 12 members and the staff set us up in a sunny, upper area on the main floor. I love the decor: bright, cherry, bamboo, high ceiling with splashes of Orange and white. It was great for a COLD, icy day In January. I ordered a wide rice noodle/shrimp dish. I... More

We visited New Year's Eve, and the curry chicken hot pot was wonderful. It was just what we needed to warm us up after skating in Lithia Park!

This is our second time in this restaurant. We ordered the stone bowl which is a version of the korean dish known as bi him bap.The taste was ok, the serving small; the bad part of this, is that it was cooked in a pool of oil; couldn't eat it after I saw all that oil! The first time we... More

Had a birthday meal here with son #1. Parking can be a challenge, but the food makes it worth it all. Winter has the ice rink close by - Moms and kids will be at the rink. Summertime will be plays and visitors at the park. Plan Ahead! I had the Char Siu Tenderloin Pork! (About $15) Ohhhhhhh, it is... More

Menu choices are not broad. Had to change my choice of entree because apparently some ingredients are cooked ahead and they could not leave out the green pepper element. The ribs were good, but came with very spicy sides. The Cashew Chicken, was not overly spicy, but rather uninteresting.

I tried the eggplant curry with jackfruit which was bursting with delicious and hearty flavors. The lemongrass cooler was also excellent. I definitely recommend it!

We've eaten here many times over the years and it's always been excellent. Without burning your mouth you can have spicy dishes that are prepared to order. The soft sorbet is worth the whole visit, but don't miss the entrees!

Thank Rosalie M

Sesame’s menu is inspired by the various cultures of the Far East, representing a fusion of cuisines from the South China Seas. We incorporate fresh Asian vegetables, free-range meats and house-blended spices with other specialty ingredients to create seasonal menus. Local partnerships allow us to feature the best ingredients and we offer beer, wine, sake and specialty cocktails to complete the experience.
