“Love Sesame Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Best chinese food in Pittsburgh. I always get the Amazing Chicken. It is a boneless chicken with General Tso's sauce. The quality of thie chicken is great and its the best I have had in Pittsburgh. Won't go anywhere else now that I've had Sesame Inn.

“Better Asian cuisine elsewhere”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

I have been here a few times. The food is terrible, way too over priced for Chinese food. Also, the service is horrible. After waiting for 40 minutes at a table to finally see a server, the busboy came over and waited on us (there were only 8 other people in the restaurant). The staff did not interact with us, and we saw the busboy twice (once for the order and once for delivery). My orange chicken was pretty standard.. but the coconut shrimp had the flavor of microwaved seafood.

“Always good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Some of the best Chinese in the burgh---Mt. Lebo location is the best in my opinion. Great wonton soup-my favorite! Also they have a Thai selection on their menu that is surprisingly good for a "chinese" restaurant.

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Ever since Jimmy Tsang's in Shadyside closed two years ago, my wife and I have been looking for a mid-to-upscale Chinese restaurant to frequent and, after trying and being disappointed by several around the Pittsburgh region, we have finally scored with the Sesame Inn. Price point is very similar to Tsangs. The quality and, most importantly, variety of dishes is was beyond my expectations. The wait staff was very attentive but not intrusive. The dishes were served in an expedited manner but not so much as that you felt you were being rushed - they were perfectly timed. The atmosphere was very good - not too much noise drifting from the lounge area into the dining spaces, but not uncomfortably quiet; perfect ambiance. Overall, an excellent dining experience.
