Excellent Dine-In Asian Restaurant.
We eat at Sesames a couple of times per month. It has become so popular with our family that our kids drive for 45 minutes to come here on special occasions. Supper portions are generous and the kitchen is happy to prepare to your taste. I dislike broccoli and love bean sprouts -- no problems substituting! My husband likes his food uber spicy and finds the dishes marked as "hot" not very -- but they will bump it up if you just ask.
only if you like greasy food and bugs.
waiter did not understand what i ordered , he brough me a order of greasy egg rolls, and beef with vegetables with a bug in it. without further mention, i left the restauent and never come back!!!!!!
I love Sesame. The food is always great tasting, hot, and the portions are gigantic. You can't beat their lunch specials. For right around $5.00 you get a main dish, fried rice, and a crab rangoon. This is no scaled down portion of a "dinner" dish though, it's still a full sized portion. I always have leftovers. Their sesame chicken is the best thing on the menu. You get all white meat chicken and their sauce is incredible. It's not the normal brown sauce that you get from every other Chinese place I've ever been to, it's a clear sauce that tastes great. I recommend it to anyone. You'll pay the same amount for dinner here as you will anywhere else so the prices are competitive. If you've never been and are looking for some great food, I highly suggest the drive to Sesame.
This place sucks!.
This is the worst Chinese Restaurant that I think I have ever been to. The waitress was very rude. We arrived a few minutes after the "lunch special" window closed, so we had no discounted menu to select from. Despite the prices being exceptionally high, as we did not arrive in time I could still understand no discount. After further inspecting the menu, we discovered that they charged for literally everything. INCLUDING .20cents per fortune cookie.
The food came out about 50 or 60 seconds after we ordered it, as if it had been pre-prepared. It was a high price to pay for something that royally sucked. It then took us waiting 10 minutes for us to FIND the waitress and ASK for the check. She then took 15-20 mins to DELIVER the check to us. This lousy place is in a dying part of town, and it seems as if they have no interest in surviving through these tough economic times. I do not recommend this place unless you really hate yourself. You'd think for being two of only three people in the establishment they would care more.
Not only do they not deliver, but they charge more and do not include appetizers or soft drinks with the lunch specials. Our company orders weekly and decided to try diff Chinese Restaurants and noone had anything good to say about their dinner. I litteraly feel sick to my stomach after eating their food. I would strongly suggest everyone who thinks this is the best ever should try a few others. We still have found noone better than Lein Yu next to Chevy's in South County...
Takeout or in the restaurant it is GREAT!!! We moved about 5 years ago and we still will drive 30 minutes to get our Chinese from Sesame. Very reasonable prices and always great food. Highly recommended
I'm a spoiled Pacific Northwesterner who grew up eating Japanese, Canotnese, Chinese, Thai, and all sorts of Asian cuisine... I won't call it the best Chinese food in Saint Louis but it's definately up there. What really makes this place outstanding is the amazing service and hospitality of the staff... The decor is a little campy, the whole atmosphere a little old school but the prices are within the normal range for Chinese and the food is fast, fresh and heads above the slop other places in this city try to pass off as Chinese. I live about 15 minutes away and it was well worth the travel. I highly reccomend making the trek out to Sesame.
