With all the different dietary restrictions in our group, this was an excellent choice! We all chose to have the stir-fry bar, so it's your fault if you don't like the ingredients! Delicious, good service.
I used to love coming here...the quality of the food was poor for the stir fry...the rest agreed they would not be coming back.
This has been one of my favorite restaurants over the last decade, but the last few times I've found the prices have gone up and sadly the quality has gone down and is not consistent.
Food was excellent, as always. We made a reservation and we were taken in right away. The staff was friendly and attentive. This restaurant is a family favourite! Highly recommend.
This restaurant is always a good choice when one wants to try out some healthy, tasty Asian cuisine.
Our server really made my 30th birthday dinner extra special! Thank you so much!
The food was really good. The service lacked in the beginning but picked up steam towards the end. My mom was quite upset there was no peppercini peppers any more.
We love the personalized dishes! Good choice of fresh ingredients.
Service was great, Steven was very helpful. Food choices were numerous, but I think the recommendation to use 4-6 scoops of stirfry sauce may be high as I used 5 and my rice was very soggy and there was definitely too much sauce for my taste. I will know for next time and I will be back!
We had the deep fried veggie rolls - they were good but $8 for 2 rolls. I find that price a bit steep!
We both had the Katsu chicken sizzling plate.
It was a tasting dish but had way too much sauce!
When the plates arrived the first thing we noticed was this big thick glob of black / dark sauce sitting on top of the overall dish. The food also sat in this same sauce. It was like there was an oil spill.
I’d suggest limit the sauce somewhat 🤨 and add a small side dish of sauce to be used at the customers discretion.
Nice ambience in the restaurant but would not be my first choice to return too!
Well this was a huge disappointment, our food came to the table raw. Raw chicken raw shrimp on top on our food. Server was amazing not his fault. The cooks have one job to cook thin sliced meat and couldn’t even do that! We of course got new meals but who want to eat after that! And they made us pay so not happy! I will never go back!
Always have a great meal, good service and a fantastic time at Open Sesame. One of my favourites!
It was great food. Service was slow as there was only one waiter for the enter floor and the restaurant was full.
food got us sick, and was burnt, was super expensive for what we got.
We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday here and it was a great experience. The server (I think his name was Steve) was wonderful, patience, on top of everything, helpful and very attentive. Everyone at the restaurant did the best they could to accommodate my group and take good care of us. I can't thank enough how good we were treated, we didn't have to worry about a thing. Thank you all, sorry for making you stay so late.
The food was really good, as always.
Our server Stephen was amazing. Best server I have come across in a very long time. Food was great. Sat by the fire. Awesome date night
We picked Open Sesame because you can make up your own dish. It was exactly what we were looking for. We struggled a bit at the sauce bar because there were so many choices. The mistake I made was putting too much garlic on my dish and not enough sauce. It was still very good and it will be even better next time now that I know what I'm doing! Our server was very good. Checked with us often but wasn't a pest. We really enjoyed ourselves.
The service and quickness of the meal preparation was great for a lunch also never felt rushed
Unfortunately, the quality of the food was very poor. The raw vegetables were brown and wilted. The cooked food was barely warm and tasteless. Even though when we arrived, there were not many customers there, service was very slow.
Overall still a great place to eat. Been going since opening day.
Had a great night our server Steven was excellent. Only thing I would add is more signage at the sauce and veggie areas. Several of us were confused as to where to start and only noticed the one above after we had already added our veggies first. Otherwise excellent.
Dinner to get reacquainted with a friend (who happens to have allergies).
The food was great, and David was very accommodating when it came to ensuring that there was no risk of needing the Epi-pen due to cross-contamination.
It was pretty quiet, and the service was quick and attentive.
The stir fry option was well done, with just the right amount of options. Aside from a group that couldn’t read the right-in-front-of-their-face signs suggesting the best way to use the veggie/sauce bar the experience and environment was both welcoming and well maintained.
Sorry, was too distracted by the company to take photos.
Great selection of veggies for the self-design bowl selection. The addition of meat was quite pricy for the amount given, but tasty nonetheless. I appreciated that they gave recommendations for sauce, as the selection was overwhelming!
Menu had old dried food in it. Food was bland and paid for meat in a dish but maybe got a spoon full of chicken. No refills on any drinks. Unfortunately this place seems to be going downhill.
We had a good time at Open Sesame. The waiter ( Ruslan?) was very attentive and amusing. The food was good and the restaurant was quiet as it was a Monday night. Always good value for money.
Server was great, we had the make your own stir fry which never disappoints
Great food and up to their usual standards. Waiter was friendly and on the balll (too on the ball actually). We had a table by the fireplace which was very comfy and casual and added to the very relaxed atmosphere of the place. Open Sesame is one of my favorite's; never disappoints.
Food was excellent. Service was fabulous
I really enjoy this place. Nice you can get exactly what you want in a stir fry. Love that they have different atmosphere throughout the place. Staff are so friendly and always ensure your water and drinks are full.
We were the only people in the restaurant for the first 20 minutes and our order for drinks was taken right away. But, it took 20 minutes to get our drinks once other people came in and 40 min to get our meals. The food was only okay. I don't think I would return
The food was good but the service was awful. I had a reservation when I arrived, they seated me. However, when the rest of my party arrived this reservation was no where to be found so I had to get up and go to the front to get the rest of my party. Also the waiter was really slow, my party was ordering 2 drinks at a time because he was pretty slow..
We were stuck in the corner with no lighting made it very hard to read the menu ... our waiter also took 15 mins to get us a drinks.
Was ok. Food not as good as I expected. My stir fry have big chunks of chicken instead of sliced or smaller cubes. This was my birthday dinner and I was disappointed. I took my food home with me and threw it out.
My server was great.
Was left sitting for half an hour before finally getting up to have a waiter take our order for even drinks.
Food came with uncooked rice.
Very very slow service.
We’ve had better service before. The meal was just ok - nothing special to report.
We were pleased overall. One in our group asked for no sesame and they had it on their stir-fry . Also the spring rolls for $8 was a rip off. We only got 2!
you need to know how to work the plate...put the flat things on the bottom of the bowl and then layer the bigger chunks on top. This will allow you to pile more into the bowl and that way, when it all shrinks when being cooked, you still end up with a substantial meal.
It is delicious, no matter what you eat.
With the various dietary restrictions in our family, it's a great place to eat for everyone! The make-your-own stirfry is delicious.
The food is great, as you make a lot of it yourself and the seats by the fireplace are warm and inviting.
