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.
It was my daughters birthday and this is her favourite place. She had a wonderful meal and the service was awesome.
One of our favorite places. Worth the trip from Medicine Hat. Made the trip numerous times
The Build-Your-Own Stirfry is my favourite item on the menu. So many sauces, vegetables , and add ins to choose from.
The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable.
I would recommend Open Sesame to anyone. The menu has something for everyone.
Our server was phenomenal! We had a group of 7 with a rambunctious toddler and two birthdays on Tuesday night. He was absolutely perfect in every way, very professional, efficient, friendly, knowledgeable, approachable, with great presentation and table maintenance. The staff of Open Sesame are truly well chosen and trained. Thank you!
We are regulars at Open Sesame but haven't been in a while. the Wok Salmon enjoyed by 2 of the 4 of us was exceptional as always. I always have the stir fry and it was over cooked and the chicken very dry. It's like the chicken was (over)cooked ahead and just added to the stir fry, they used to have packets of fresh chicken which was put in first and then the veggies added. My moms dish was also not enjoyable, she said the shrimp were very small and not very tasteful and not enough of them. The banana wonton dessert was not hot from the deep fryer, very disappointing. So disappointed that a favorite restaurant of ours appears to be going downhill.
Overall a fabulous place to eat and always a hit. However the restaurant is always way to hot. This last time it was uncomfortably hot and we complained to our waiter.
Ordered the chicken stir fry.
Veggies were fresh however the chicken was terrible. Was chewy like rubber and there were maybe 3 medium sized pieces. I did the suggested sauce combo which was very bland. This was my 2nd time here and I'm sad to say I will not be back
Great restaurant! Service was incredible, excelent food and cozy ambience!
It was a nice evening and although busy service was prompt, the atmosphere was relaxing, enjoyable, and food was absolutely amazing I will surely be back.
Overall I had a good experience. When my friend and I wanted to share an entree we were told it would be an additional $4 charge.
We ended up separately ordering dishes and they didn’t charge.
The menu isn’t CHEAP, but it’s noy bad.
But when 2 people order $80 of food,adding a $4 charge is kind of ridiculous.
Everything else was great.
The calamari was stuffed and not good for low-carb diet. The menu should state this
The Thai shrimp were phenomenal.
One of my favourite restaurants. I always make a point of going there to eat when I'm in town visiting!!
Minimally staffed, I know it's lunch, but you still have to plan for a busy lunch, just in case. Food was okay.
The food was excellent, and good central location. The interior is a bit dated, but clean and pleasant.
the multi-level design makes every table feel cozy and private. The value for quality of food is great. We will go back
A mother/daughter sat near us. Daughter ate nothing & watched videos in her cell phone-as did the mother!!
I always enjoy my meal at Open Sesame. Today's service wasn't as good as what we normally get but it wasn't below standard.
Food is excellent. However service was not what it usually is and the restaurant wasn’t that busy. Still, I highly recommend this restaurant.
The food here is actually really good! I had the sizzling plate soy salmon and it was some of the best salmon I have had even at a high end restaurant. The build your own bowls are great as you get to pick exactly what you want. Service is accurate, but scarce - not the best for business because of this - but if you are low maintenance and just want a casual dinner in an ok environment (dated and dark) the food is worth it!
The food was amazing and fresh! (We ordered the ginger beef stir fry & Shanghai street noodles). We loved the ambience. The only complaints were that there was not a greeter at the front (the people behind us went to find someone after about ten minutes of waiting) and it took a long time for our food to come and to get our bill.
Great food, the peanut butter blonde is THE best! A little expensive but delicious!
Staff was on their game and the young lady that had taken care of us was exceptional not rushed and made us a priority! I enjoy each time I eat in restaurant! Just a bit more variety on the salad tables was needed but was replenished quickly when we mentioned it!
Open Sesame is always a great time. Nice interior, delicious food, and the option to make your own stir fry by choosing ingredients yourself make for a great experience.
Stir fries were not hot as we had to wait for another meal.
The Merlot was poor.
The steak was very chewy but tasted good.
Quantity of food and variety was great.
Our waiter was entertaining, energetic, and very helpful.
We really want to try the restaurant again to be sure we didn't just have a bit of bad luck.
Our daughter chose this spot for her 20th birthday. The service was extremely slow and the server wasn’t busy. Other tables received much better service than we did. This is our daughters favourite restaurant but our first time there and I dont think we will be back. I indicated in the reservation that it was a birthday but nothing was mentioned. I’m not sure why it’s even asked.
Great attentive server. Food came quickly. Creative menu items.
One of my faveriot restaurants! I frequent here often for birthdays and date nights!
