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.

Sesam! Most awesome burger place in Trondheim! Their burgers are really tasty, and the staff is friendly. Student discount at certain times. Totally worth it!

Simply some of the best hamburgers available. Careful and attentive staff, interesting and often crowded sitting area, but: the food is excellent!
