“Good Location, Good Food, Good Ambiance”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

I was impressed with Sesame Asian Kitchen. The ambiance of the restaurant was very good and the Asian Fusion Menu was good. I was there for lunch and the service was good and the food was very good. I would go back on my next visit to Ashland.

“Good Flavor, Satisfying”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Good location, satisfying food and nice service made for a good experience. By the creek or towards the street (creekside dogs are not allowed, but streetside they can stay close by). We had rice bowl and eggplant and left happy.

“Great Outdoor Dining”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This restaurant is right across from Lithia Park, alongside a gentle stream. Outdoor dining is shaded in the afternoon. Great food, friendly staff, dog friendly, reasonable prices.

Outdoor dining is probably one of the best ways to enjoy food, don't you think? Thanks for the kind words, Mike. I hope to see you in the restaurant again soon!

“Heavy handed with the spices and oil, mediocre service”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I had been looking forward to trying this place for a long time. First the good: Lovely decor and nice atmosphere.
The bad: The best Asian food has delicate flavors and uses oil to enhance flavor not drown it. I get that food can be creative and you can change Pho or any other dish, but in the end it should enhance what is best about it, not drown it out.
the worst: the pho, the steamed pork buns, cashew chicken, a very bad pork noodle dish Dan
Best: Bi Bim Bop bowl, Edamame
My table was a group (and in Ashland are groups really that rare?) and they wouldn't split the credit card more than two ways which was annoying.
Service was slow and very unaware of scheduled play times.

“A nice atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Asian fusion food, well cooked with fresh ingredients. You can sit along Ashland Creek outside. The wait staff is excellent. Go with friends so that you can share several dishes. All are good.

Loved this short and sweet review, Linda! I'm so happy to see you took advantage of sitting creekside to enjoy your food—there's nothing like a great view to amp up your meal. Come back and see us soon!
