It is simply very overrated. You get better hamburgers elsewhere, so Sesam is not to be recommended. It is also very inconvenient that they do not accept credit cards.

Very bad service, I wanted the small burger without cheese, but they could not sell it. They could only sell the big burger with cheese which is twice as expensive. Would not recommend.

A good selection of fast food options like burgers, kebab, french fries, etc. Not so expensive and located in the student building so it's a perfect place to go after a night out if you are hungry. It tastes good but could be better. The...More

Because Sesam has been here "forever", most every student that ever was in Trondheim ate at Sesam at some point. Probably while drunk, after a concert or some other happening at Samfundet (the building where Sesam is situated). None can blame them, you`d have to...More

This place is just overrated. Just a basic fastfood joint really. I would say the burgers are better at for example Superhero burger.

Nice fast food restaurant with a small budget. You can choose the size of the burger in all burger options. Also you should buy the fries, they are good as well. It stays open until 3am on fridays and saturdays.

This place is overrated. Just a normal fastfoodjoint, not as fantastic as it's hyped up to be. If you're on your way home drunk it might be acceptable, but I would recomend going elsewhere if not.
