This restaurant is located a couple of blocks from the top of Monongahela Incline. Excellent food and service. There is so much food in the servings, you can plan to share with family or friends.

We've have been going to the Sesame Inn for years. Their food is always exceptional. Their lunch special Monday through Saturday is a great value. Excellent food; better than the "drive thru" 🍜🍲

I think this is my first review of Sesame Inn although have been there many times. Food is always consistently good and there is always plenty of it. Wonton soup is wonderful.

Good Chinese food average priced. Service could be a little better. Our server was very mechanical , not very friendly or willing to make conversation. In fact it seemed to be the same with all of the staff. Atmosphere is nice. Portions were good sized. Ample parking. Overall very good.

This has been our go to for 14 years. Ken, the co-owner not only works every position to help his staff..but he visits all the tables he can every day to make sure you are completely satisfied. Get the Amazing Chicken with a side of black bean sauce and an egg roll. You'll thank me!!

Takeout or delivery, we have never been disappointed by the quality of the food. This time we picked up the Orange beef, amazing chicken, Orange chicken, and chicken fried rice. It was ready to go 10 minutes after we ordered despite the restaurant bring very busy. All were very good.
