Service is quick. They have the best hot and sour soup. The Rice is steamed to perfection. Highly recommend this place.

My husband and I are always looking for a Chinese restaurant to equal our favorite that is in Sedona. That said, we decided to try Sesame Inn and I wanted to compare my usual dish so I asked what vegetables they put in their Kung Pao Shrimp. Sad to say. not only were the vegetables completely different than those that... More

My husband and I were in the mood for Chinese. Decided to try the Sesame Inn. What great food. The egg rolls and the spring rolls were delicious and not at all greasy. I had the vegetable fried rice, which had a nice flavor and plenty of vegetables. The sauteed string beans were outstanding. I enjoyed my meal with a... More

My family and I have been enjoying the Sesame Inn for almost 20 years. It is an attractive space, very friendly staff and efficient service, and consistently good food. We always enjoy dining at Sesame Inn and highly recommend it.

We dined here for lunch on Sunday; there aren't too many places that you can get in without a long wait at 12:30pm on a Sunday, but this is one. I've not been here for lunch before and the menu is different from the dinner menu. The moo-shu pork is smaller and not wrapped in a pancake. It is okay... More

We had a wonderful meal at the Sesame Inn. We started with spring rolls and summer rolls, both of which were delicious. We ordered the shrimp with walnut sauce which the menu designated as spicy but it was very moderate and the shrimp in garlic sauce; both were amazing and we were unable choose our favorite between the two. The... More

I had take out from here for my family years ago one X-mas and it was very good. Was way overdue to dine in. However, the cuisine type often takes a back seat to more typical southwestern fare when we're out this way. After dinner there the other night, I will be back more often. It was a Sunday evening...
