My meal was delicious. We were with 2 other couples. The interior of the restaurant was shabby and dirty. It's definitely due for an update. This was the main reason for a lower rating. I ordered warm sake. It came with the sake in a teapot with hot water so it stayed warm longer than other places I've been. When... More

To be fair, we did go there on Christmas Day, and the place was very crowded & busy. The food was tasty, but the restaurant in general was dirty. When we sat down, my husband was sitting under an air vent. We looked up at the ceiling and all of the vents looked like they had mold or mildew. The... More

We order carryout from Sesame at least once a month if not more. Lindy is usually the woman who takes my order. She and her staff are very friendly and the food is always delicious and reasonably priced.

I have been going to this restaurant for greater than 20 years. The food is good and the service is impeccable. The owners greet you be the door and warmly welcome you to the establishment. The food is deliciious and even take out is great. The atmosphere is warm and inviting!!

Sesame Chinese is convenient to Interstates 44 and 270 and located in Sunset Hills, Missouri It is in need of a lot of updating including dirty carpet, old wallpaper, cleaning wood rail (which was very sticky) and fresh paint. Outside could also use a fresh coat of pain. They have an “A” rating, but just not appetizing once you enter.... More

This is perhaps one of the best Chinese restaurants I have ever eaten at. The food is delicious. We had seven entrees for our family celebration and they were all delicious. Our favorites were the Empress chicken, the Mongolian beef, the house special beef and the Flowery chicken. We also had the egg drop soup and wonton soup, both very... More

Delicious. Wonderful wait staff in a nice authentic Chinese atmosphere. Our first visit here at an off time but was freshly cooked, hot and tasty. The prices are reasonable and portions big enough to share. Complimentary hot tea. I'll definitely come back. Closed on Mondays.

Without a doubt one of the best Chinese restaurants around. We have been going to this place for 25+ years and have never had a bad meal. A very good selection of items. Sometimes the service is slow especially if the owners are not working. But usually they are very good at what they do. I would recommend this restaurant... More

My favorite Chinese restaurant in St. Louis. No buffet, which I appreciate. I don't think that they use MSG, but I am not certain if that is the case. All I know is that I do not get that yucky feeling after eating there, if you know what I mean with MSG. Service is attentive. Priced fairly. Great Mongolian beef,... More
