I love this place. I think it’s the best Chinese restaurant in the area. You see a really exceptional quality in the food but it’s really obvious if you get sushi. It’s a higher end Chinese restaurant but still pretty affordable and large enough to...More

We had take out and it was very good, plentiful portions and great taste. It took a while for delivery but it was hot when it arrived. We ordered 3 dishes and were able to satisfy all four of us. We would order again.

A friend recommended the Sesame Inn for the general tso's chicken, so one night we gave it a try, although hesitantly since it seemed like just a typical American Chinese restaurant. What a pleasant surprise! Not only was the seafood soup for two delicious, the...More

My wife and I frequent the Sesame Inn on a regular basis. We feel it is the best Chinese Restaurant in Pittsburgh. Our favorite dishes include the Volcano Chicken, General Tso Chicken or Shrimp, BBQ Pork, Mongolian Beef, and the many delicious combos.

We stopped in for a quick lunch And were delightfully surprised by what the menu had to offer as well as the reasonable prices. Delicious seafood soup and a sushi lunch special we're enough for two of us.

I had heard from several people that this place was good, so while I was babysitting in the area I thought we should stop in. We went on a Sunday night at 7:30. It was maybe half full and surprised me it was like that...More

The interior is much nicer than the outside would suggest. We were seated right away but they filled up quickly. The menu has plenty of options as do most Asian restaurants. Prices are higher, but portions are big. It was tasty but nothing remarkable or...More

Ample portions of decent quality Chinese with an exhaustive menu. Space is right out of the 1990's. Service is very average. Busy especially with takeout and delivery.
