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!
Delicious as always! I had the Thai Bouillabaisse for the first time and it was very good!
service was very slow, and the restaurant did not appear to be very busy
Nice ambience. Good place to take a date. Not enough meat with the stir fry.
Always enjoy open sesame. Good food and good variety.
Was appalled to find out that many vegetables weren't available, i.e. broccoli, corn, tofu, etc., when they finally came to ask what we wanted to drink. Yet, when I personally ordered off the menu, those veggies were all included in my dinner. I made a reservation for a special occasion, using Open Table & asked them to please call me for special instructions, which they didn't even bother to do.
Extremely disappointed in the portion size for appetizers, complained and still nothing was done.
It was wicked and seriously the pot stickers are best I’ve ever had
I preferred the old setup where everything was on the buffet and you filled your own bowl. The new setup with additional charges for meat and seafood makes the cost too high for what you get.
Open Sesame is one of our go-to's! We enjoy everything about it.
Food is excellent but once again their service is slow and unreliable.
Great as always.
For appetizers we shared samosas and mu shu pancakes and it was the perfect amount of food. We each had noodle bowls. If you're adding shrimp, order double (unless 3 is adequate for you - for us it isn't. ) There was a large food service disaster beside us but they managed to get it cleaned up pretty quickly. Service is never fast here, so add some time to wait for your cheque.
Food had little flavour.
Great food and great service. Been here a few times and look forward to my next visit.
Met up with friends
Good food, good ambiance. Like the ability to make our own combination. It is especially handy for our vegetarian kid. Kids love it too. We need to try rest of their menu though..😊
We had a lovely dinner. The server did a great job. I really appreciate that both vegans and meat eaters can enjoy the food
We love going to Open Seasame, particularly on Tuesday’s when they have two dollars off their marketplace bowls. We had Stephen as our server and he was awesome. Really attentive and fun.
Great place, love the food.
The only thing I would say is, the tables are too close together and it’s hard to have intimate conversations without the next person beside you hearing. (In the enclosed area)
On line reservation was easy and quick to use. Service was prompt. Food was fantastic. My daughter has chosen this restaurant every year for her birthday dinner for the past few years. I enjoy the atmosphere, service and the food.
Have been here several times, never disappointed. Great service, great food. Only thing I’d say is the noise from people walking in the restaurant above is a little distracting but I’ll be back :)
Nice place to hang out with friends while enjoying your bowl of Asian-style "pick your own". The trick is to place all the flat veggies at the bottom of the bowl and load it up with the chunkier ones on the top. Then douse it with the sauce. That way you can get more into your bowl.
The veggies shrink when cooked , so don't be afraid to pile your bowl high with the raw veg.
Love this...mmm, delicious!
