Sesame has a wonderful location. Had a very filling, satisfying and delicious Pho with chicken. Didn't need to eat again for the rest of the day!

We really enjoyed our dinner experience at the Sesame Asian Kitchen. The Coconut Calamari was very good. Nice outdoor seating across from Lithia Park. Good people watching but also lots of cars going by. Service was good although we had to wait way too long for our wine. Will return when in the area.

We appreciate the encouragement, Simon! The Coconut Calamari is one of our more popular dishes — happy to hear you're a big fan too. If you want to eat by the park, let us know next time! During the summer months we offer a picnic service.

Thanks for sharing your feedback. We can't wait to feed you again!

Sincerely,
Lisa, Owner

It took 20 minutes to get two glasses of wine and the service went down from there. The food was good though - tasty coconut calamari, the Phuket shrimp were perfectly cooked. But we'll probably go elsewhere next time.

While it's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the coconut calamari and the Phuket shrimp, I'm disappointed that we didn't live up to your expectations with our service. We never want to keep our customers waiting for too long, and I'm sorry for wait time with your wine. That said, this isn't typical of the service we usually offer our customers, and I'd love to invite you back in for another meal with us. I know we can show you a much better time.

Sincerely,
Lisa, Owner

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 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.

Hearing you left happy puts a smile on my face, thank you! We want our customers to leave our restaurant feeling happy and full, so this was wonderful to hear. Anytime you're craving some delicious Asian food by the creek, you know where to come.

Thanks for sharing your feedback!
