Visiting friends in the area, been over 30 years we fondly remember Sesame Seed, one of their first regular, very frequent customers when we lived here. Quite unique at the time. Food quality and atmosphere hasn't changed a bit, average/good. Several irratating things however. No...More

I've been here numerous times. The food is always great and the service is just as good. The menu offers great alternatives to your normal restaurant.

Fresh food and friendly service. Low key atmosphere for lunch. Had the gryo and it was tasty and satisfying. French fries were ok, but that's not what I came for. Will come back again when in town.

I came here based on a recommendation from a local. I really liked the character of the restaurant. The servers were friendly and provided great service. The food was also delicious. The only issue was that they didn't have enough shawarma patties for my meal,...More

Their signature salad with feta is a must - add grilled chicken for a healthy, hearty meal. The hummus is the best by far & any of the daily specials are worth a try.

This cute little house (turned into restaurant) with TONS of fun memorabilia, has the best hummus in the world! I get their Tahini on my salad, as a dressing, since I am not a fan of the lemon dressing it typically comes with (most people...More

Sort of. Only a few steps up to entrance, no ramp. But not sure of the bathroom. didn't use it this trip. Years ago, I recall it was in the basement. So I'd call ahead to check.
